In India, Yonex Voltric Z Force is available in the 4U weight option (it is around 83 gms). The racquet frame is made of high modulus graphite material while its frame is made of H.M. Graphite, EX-HMG, NANOMETRIC.
Voltric Z Force II is a revolutionary badminton racquet from the Yonex brand. It is a Voltric series badminton racquet that provides incredible power to badminton players.
This Voltric series badminton racquet is developed with an ultra-thin shaft which is extra stiff in nature. Due to the extra stiff shaft and ultra-dynamic head shape, the player will get powerful smashes and easy 3rd line clear.
Yonex research shows that Yonex VT Z Force II provides 6.2km/h more End shuttle speed as compared to traditional Z Force. With Z Force II, the player will get a 10 km/hr additional initial speed.
Yonex Maximum Energy Transfer: Yonex used an ultra-thin shaft in this racquet which provides unique characteristics to z force 2. Additional to the ultra-thin shaft Yonex further improved the aerodynamics of the racquet by improving the aerodynamics of the head. So the combination of an ultra-thin shaft and the better aerodynamics of the head provides an increase in power and shuttle speed.
Yonex Tri ibumper: Shuttle contact to string bed is very important, Yonex clearly study the pattern of traditional Yonex racquet shuttle contact and invented all-new Tri ibumper technology. In this technology, tungsten-infused grommets are used to maximize the shuttle contact with the string bed. This improves the overall power of the racquet.
Aerodynamic Frame: In conventional racquets, small parts of grommets are exposed to air due to traditional manufacturing techniques. In order to reduce the air resistance, Yonex used infused grommets. Infused grommets are developed in such a way so that no part of grommets is exposed thus resulting in better aerodynamic racquets.
Tri Voltage System Gives Powerful racquet smashes: Voltric series is head heavy series as per Yonex design. Head heavy series badminton racquets generate tremendous power on smashes as it leads to giving more momentum. Further, to improve the head heavy racquet characteristics, Yonex used stiff material at the racquet head which result in optimized shuttle hold time at the string bed. By using stiff material at the racquet head, now player will get better power and control on shots. Yonex further improves the racquet characteristics by making a thin racquet frame side. This improves the racquet flex and helps in transferring more energy into the shuttle. With more energy transfer, badminton players will get maximum power on shots. Overall, the combination of head heavy, stiff racquet head top and flexible side offer incredible power, speed, and control to badminton players.
Tri Voltage System Gives Speedy Racquet handling: In order to balance the head heavy effect of the racquet, Yonex first time used the very thin and aerodynamically shaped side at the frame head. This type of aerodynamically designed racquet head side offers fast racquet swing speed by which player gets quick racquet response which helps in placing fast drive shots, quick corner smashes, and quick response to opponent drives. Overall, with the help of the Tri Voltage System, a Badminton player will get maximum power while the player doesn’t need to compromise on badminton racquet speed.
Sound Filter: To improve the dull sound of shuttle hits, Yonex invented new technology known as a sound filter. In this technology, new and innovative material is used at the 10 o clock position. This reduces the unwanted and dull sound during shuttle hit and generates a very clear and louder sound. The sound Filter also reduces uncomfortable sensation from the racquet by rapidly eliminating 31% of vibrations.
Yonex Compact Frame: To optimize its head-heavy nature, Yonex used a smaller size frame which results in better aerodynamics and provides better racquet head speed. A smaller head size also reduces the drag forces and helps in improving racquet swing speed.
Nanometric Shaft: Yonex used Nanometric material in the shaft which gives excellent shaft characteristics. It improves the bonding strength of carbon fiber and lesser carbon content in the shaft helps in producing a slim and thinner shaft. By testing the Nanometric shaft on following results are observed:
The nanometric shaft gives 8% more Bending strength as compared to traditional graphite material.
9 % better stiffness.
16% better impact strength.
Yonex Isometric: Yonex isometric is a trademarked technology for racquet head frame shape. In an isometric head shape, the vertical string is kept a uniform length to produce an extended sweet spot by horizontal strings. With enlarged and extended sweet spots, players will get better power on shots.
Yonex New Grommets Patterns: Yonex used innovative grommets patterns in this latest Yonex racquet. It includes single-pass whole grommets which provide high-performance string characteristics to better power and repulsion.
Built-in T Joint (More joint rigidity, better accuracy, and control on shots): Joint of any device is a weaker part and it affects the overall dynamic of the device. In Racquet T joint is a weaker part and it affects the racquet stability when the shuttle hits the string bed. During shuttle impact on string bed, forces are transferred to T joint and if joint is weak in nature then it could cause direction instability of shuttle. Yonex identified this problem and developed a built-in T Joint. Yonex used Moulded deep into the layers of graphite which gives joint free section and provides a more rigid racquet.
Control Cap for Better Gripping and control on shots: Control cap is a concept which is developed by Yonex to improve the gripping of the racquet. Cap is a part that connects the shaft with the handle. The Badminton player holds the racquet from the handle and finally grips it’s with Cap. Yonex used a more flat surface on the cap (88 PERCENT flat surface) which gives the opportunity to grip more accurately.
