The Voltric Z-Force II was launched near the end of 2013 in the iconic All-England tournament with its main ambassador being the famous Lee Chong Wei.
This racquet replaced the original version Z-Force which was eventually withdrawn from the market due to its construction, thus putting the bar high for YONEX in the launch of the second version.
It is a racket quite different from the original and for the better.
Huge professional players have begun to use it and even though it has passed several years of its launch continues to be used by many professionals is considered one of the best rackets launched by the brand.
There are some variations of this model, being also quite famous, which were created having Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan as ambassadors.
For those who have doubts, if they have any differences, they do not. It is just another color pattern, an aesthetic variation of the original.

All About YONEX Voltric Z-Force II (Review)
Slim Shaft and Compact Frame
The Voltric Z-Force II has a very thin shaft (the finest in the history of YONEX at the time) and has a more compact head, thus being smaller in size than normal.
These characteristics make it a fast racquet and quite aerodynamic, giving to make a quick swing without problems.
These grommets make the time of contact of the steering wheel on the strings larger, giving more control and transfer of power in your movement.
Despite being a good technology has a disadvantage. When you start a grommet you cannot replace only one piece, but all that side, thus becoming more expensive when restricting your racket.
One of the YONEX brand images, the Voltric Z-Force II has an isometric structure which increases the sweet spot of the racquet, allowing greater control and power without having to hit exactly in the middle.
Stiff Shaft and Head Heavy
This racquet has as main features the fact of having a stiff shaft and also be head heavy in terms of balancing.
This makes the beats, especially in smash, have immense power when done in the right way, something that is greatly appreciated by players with a very attacking game style.
However, if you are a player with a weak pulse or forearm, you may experience great difficulties in handling them, quickly getting in pain.
Also, if you do not have good power and correct form in smash do not think that the racket will turn your beat because it will not, it may even work the other way around.
Now we’ll look at your performance across the various types of bids and see what your strengths and weaknesses are.
It has a pretty good and consistent beat. Its structure and balance with weight on the head make you feel good whenever you make a clear and thus achieve a greater level of control of it.
Its repulsion power is also very good, being easy to send the steering wheel to the bottom of the court.
Consistent, always produces good Drop Shots if you make the move correctly, just great.
This is where most players prefer this racket.
The combination of head heavy and stiff shaft is not the easiest to maneuver and use, but for players who can get used to it can become quite a powerful weapon and get enough power out of your smash.
For some reason players with quite powerful smashes as is the case of Lee Chong Wei relied on this racket and used it for so long.
It is a consistent racket and in a singles game, you should not notice any problem in using it to defend even because its aerodynamic and compact frame make it quite quick to handle.
However, if you are playing in doubles, although many doubles players also use it, several professionals complain that it is difficult to play at the foot of the net with the speed that is required, blaming the rigidity of the shaft that causes can’t produce the necessary power with a rather short movement.
YONEX Voltric Z-Force II
The YONEX Voltric Z-Force II is one of the best badminton rackets on the market without any doubt, already existing a few years ago, but still used by professionals.
Fantastic for players with an offensive and strong muscled style of play, great for a balanced and consistent style of play.
The only “negative” points to point out are the ones we mentioned above in double matches, but if you can try even if you play mostly doubles because it is a question of personal tastes and adaptability.
The other negative is the price. It is in the highest price range.
It sure is worth the price but ends up making it impossible for many players to have the opportunity to test and see if they can adapt to it.
And so, did you know more about this racquet with our YONEX Voltric Z-Force II review, since its characteristics, if it is good to attack, defend, price, etc …?
