Yonex Voltric 5 (VT5) 2012 badminton racket is a heavier racket in overall weight in comparison to the Voltric 7. The Voltric 5 (VT5) 2012 badminton racket is balanced toward the head for power and has slim frame design to improve agility and control/maneuverability.
Traditionally, extra weight at the top of the racket frame has increased power while reducing maneuverability or control from the player. In contrast, less weight on the top of the racket frame increases speed but reduce power. Yonex solves this problem by using the new TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM to successfully combines the contrasting characteristics of exceptional power and control.
Within the TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM, Tungsten inserts are positioned at the 2 and 10 o'clock positions of the frame, and at the T-Joint area. Tungsten provides more than 10 times the relative density of graphite, allowing the sides of the frame to be thinner and more aerodynamic and therefore achieving the combination of heavy smashes and swing speed or fast racket handling.
VOLTRIC IS POWER
The stiff racquet structure at the top of the frame head allows the head to bend in a very controlled way and hold shuttles on the string bed for longer. The thin frame sides then allow the frame to flex more and transfer more energy to the shuttle. This combination allows you to smash with instant power.
VOLTRIC IS AGILITY
In VOLTRIC, the weight is balanced on the top of the frame and at the joint area which allows good handling while also maintaining power. The thin sides of the frame and at the top of the head reduced air resistance and improve the handling even further. Players can now make a full swing even during short range rallies as VOLTRIC responds instantly to even subtle movements.
VOLTRIC IS STRONG SOUNDING
Another innovative Yonex technology, SOUND FILTER uses new materials at the two and ten o'clock positions to reduce only high pitched and dull soundwaves. This produces a louder and sharper sounds on impact to unsettle opponents, and provides a more aggressive tone to your game for a relentlessly attacking style of play.
