OK, I’m not going to rave about this racquet like I did VT80. However, it certainly deserves a place in Voltric range. The more I thought about the racquet the more I struggled to place it. However, I finally decided it’s like a medium flex, mid-head heavy Nano9900. It’s got a touch more speed than AT600 without loss of power. That is saying a lot about the racquet because as readers of my blog will testify, my thoughts about Nano9900 and head light racquets in general have changed since my seasons experience of using them.
With an RRP of only £80, this has got to be one of Yonex best bargains! With online discounters you’ll probably pick one up for around £70. Having tested a lot of mid-priced racquets, this has got to be near the top of your list for trying. It’s good looking, performs really well in all departments and it’s a great price.
If there are any downsides to this racquet, then I haven’t experienced them. The racquet didn’t bowl me over like VT80, however, I’m classing that as a once in a lifetime experience. As such, VT7 has done remarkably well to overcome any downers I could have had after my VT80 experience.
So how do I rate this racquet? I compared it to AT600 which I scored 5 stars, compared it to Nano9900 which I also rated highly and yet, here I am wondering why I’m not jumping up and down giving it another 5 stars? Perhaps I am suffering from VT80 withdrawal symptoms?
After stopping this review for a few moments and taking stock of my thoughts here, I think I am suffering withdrawal symptoms and being too harsh on the racquet, comparing it to VT80. With that in mind, and taking into consideration all factors, I really have to stick my neck out and say it’s a wonderful racquet and it really deserves my 5 star rating (sorry VT7 for doubting you for a moment).
As with all my reviews, they are based on my personal thoughts on a racquet. My likes and dislikes will not be the same as yours. Also bear in mind my technique, style, physical build and muscle structure are different so I will always feel a racquet different to you.
To sum up, if you’re looking to spend around £80 for a new racquet, and you want your racquet to pack a punch and yet still be quick in defence and around the net, then this racquet has got to tested. I think it’s the best in Yonex mid-priced range. I’m testing VT5 next and have the feeling this is also going to figure prominently and compete with VT7 for your favour. Watch out because Voltric is slowly taking over.
