Technology Used:

TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM

For the first time, the new TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM successfully combines the contrasting characteristics of exceptional power and great handling. YONEX has developed a racket which achieves the combination of heavy smashes and speedy racket handling.

Voltric is Power: The stiff racket structure at the top of the frame 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 reduce 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.

Sound Filter

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 sound on impact to unsettle opponents, and provides a more aggressive tone to your game for a relentlessly attacking style of play. Sound Filter also reduces uncomfortable sensation from the racket by rapidly eliminating 31% of vibrations.

ISOMETRIC

The ISOMETRIC equalizes the length of the main and crosses strings in the string-bed, enlarging the sweet spot for more consistent accuracy even on off-center hits.

New Grommet Pattern

The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.

Solid Feel core

The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all rackets manufactured in Japan.

Maximum Energy Transfer

The ultra-thin, yet super stiff shaft and ultra-aerodynamic head shape allows the shuttle to be hit with increased power, reducing the deceleration of the shuttle and allowing it to be returned with sustained and ultimate power.

Ultra Thin,
Extra Slim Shaft

EXTRA SLIM SHAFT - THE THINNEST STRONGEST EVER PRODUCED BY YONEX

Cutting edge NANOMETRIC carbon technology is used to produce an ultra-thin, ultra-tough, aerodynamic shaft, created for a stronger and more intense shot.

Tungsten Infused Grommets

Tungsten infused grommets maximize the contact time between shuttle and string. This combined with the TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM ensures that the frame flexes in a controlled way, holding the shuttle on the string bed for longer, for maximum transfer of power to the shuttle.

Aerodynamic Frame Construction

Air resistance is minimized by including the tip of the grommet inside the frame, to produce an ultra-smooth, air resistant shape that together with a heavy head delivers a smooth swinging frame with awesome power.

Compact Frame

Frame construction provides fast swing and head-heavy balance.

To balance the heavy racket head, the frame has been made smaller to maintain the fast swing demanded by advanced players.

By reducing the drag caused by air resistance, the head-heavy feeling is reduced and racket handling speed is increased.

AERO + BOX Frame

The AERO + BOX Frame combination delivers the solid hitting feel and quick swing.

‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint

‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.

NANOMETRIC

The NANOMETRIC improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibers taking the racket shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60% thinner than a conventional racket while retaining stiffness, Yonex has created a revolutionary lightweight racket with lightening head speed and control.

NANOMETRIC is the new material that applies the NANOALLOY Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.

  • First impressions
    Introduced in 2014, the Voltric Z Force 2 badminton racket is a head heavy racket with a slim extra stiff shaft. This badminton racket is elegant, without the flashy design and vibrant color of the other badminton rackets from Yonex. It is almost full black with some blue decals. The fact that it is still in the Yonex catalog speaks volumes about its popularity. The Tri-voltage system combines the contrasting characteristics of a head heavy powerful racket with light and fast racket handling. This frame also comes with a tungsten grommet strip system for extra string stlability. The Malaysian superstar Lee Chong Wei used the Voltric Z Force 2 badminton racket for a long time. Yonex also introduced the Voltric ZForce 2 LCW – a special edition frame for a short time. The blend of matte/black and neon/blue looks attractive. We tested the 4U4 version of the racket over a 2 week period.
    Smash - 9.8
    The ultra-aerodynamic head shape with the blend of the stiff shaft provided a tremendous power resulting in accurate, steep angled smashes. Our experts were able to execute stick smashes as well as full smashes with ease. The Z Force 2 performed exceedingly well in the four-corner test. Our team gave a near perfect 9.8/10.
    Drop- 8.5
    The compact head helped to minimize resistance and the extra stiff shaft allowed precise and accurate drop shots. While it took a bit of time to get used to, upon increased use, the Voltric ZForce 2 was quick to maneuver while executing soft drop shots. Our team tested several variations of the drop including the cross drop, slice drop, reverse drop and even the backhand drop. Our team gave the Z Force 2 8.5/10 for drops.
    Clear - 8.2
    It was easy to clear with Yonex Voltric Z Force 2 as the frame has been designed with a smaller compact head and slim shaft for quicker speed swing. The tri-voltage systems worked very well imparting adequate power on clears. Our experts opined that they could control their clears but precision could have been better. This slight issue could be attributed to the smaller head size and can be worked over in time as players get used to playing with this frame.
    Drive - 9
    Drives are an important aspect of your game wether you are playing singles or doubles. Our team could hit hard, flat drives to the opponents' backline with the Voltric Z Force 2. The extra stiff shaft added to the control. Our experts scored the Z Force 2 at a 9/10.
    Defensive Lift - 8.5
    Defensive lifts are an important shot in a player’s arsenal and is quite often used to extend rallies to win crucial points. Our experts felt that the Zforce 2 is a good racket to play defense with. Lifts were easy to execute and the maneuverability of the frame helped to move the frame back in position faster to return the opponent's next shot.
    Net Kill - 8.0
    Net kills are difficult to execute requiring incredibly fast racket speed and swing. The Voltric Z Force2 badminton racket, with its heavy head, is not ideally suited for perfect net kills. Our experts could still achieve excellence with the net kill. Our experts gave a score of 8 for net kills.
    Summary
    The Yonex Voltrix ZForce badminton racket is most suitable for the advanced player. Beginners and intermediate players will find the compact head and head heavy frame difficult to use and control. The Duora series, Nanoray or the newly introduced Nanoflare series badminton rackets might be better options for them. For the advanced player though with proper technique, this racket is a delight and fun to use.
