Voltric 5 (www.leosrackets.com)

The Voltric 5 badminton racquet was introduced in 2011 at the All Englands, it is a predecessor of the Voltric 80.

The Voltric racquets have proven to be a success for the Yonex brand because of the technological advancements and it is also the most affordable.

The Yonex Voltric 5 badminton racquet is available in a full carry case, and it is important to note at this point that this has become the benchmark for the Voltric series of products, the “Tri-Voltage” system. This specific model is available in black with hues of yellow.

This racquet is very lightweight and its weight ranges from 85 grams to 89 grams. Its grip size is ranked as a G4 which is really the smallest of grip sizes available in the entire range.

The Voltric technology borrows heavily from the technology used in the Armortec, and is the combination of the Arcsaber and Nanospeed techniques used.

The Yonex Voltric 5 badminton racket is certainly head heavy, a trait that new users find a little hard to adjust to especially if they are more accustomed to the lightweight versions of the different rackets available. The closest comparison one can make to this is the AT900T. if anything, this is the ideal racket if you would like to have your model substituted. Its balance is similar to Voltric 7. Its shaft is medium flex, making it suitable for players involved with the league. Note that the maximum tension which is recommended is 24 lbs or below, although this is characteristic of racquets from Yonex.
