Bought this Racket to get back into playing the sport from a 20 year break. Racket performs fantastic, great power fast handling and perfect for even close net play. which I was surprised with as the racket is head heavy and designed for aggressive play. would recommend for intermediate players.
After 20 years without playing I started 2 months ago using my wifes racket we bought from Decathloon for £25ish pounds. This racket is clearly more however I noticed the additional power straight away. In my first game using it I was now able to hit the shuttle from the back of the court beyond the opposition service line.....previously due to my lack of ability I was hitting it deep court only from the same position.
So now I cannot blame the racket and I just have to work on my appalling technique, fitness, reading the game,...shot selection........etc etc
Great cover aswell with a full length zip allows easy access to the racket.

The yonex voltric 5 performs well and is great value for money. It has a good amount of power; the racket is head heavy and has a fairly high string tension. After only playing with it twice, I already feel that my smashes are faster and have more power. I also find that it takes less effort to do a high serve into your opponent's rear court. My old racket was head light and had poor string tension, so overall the Voltric 5 is a big improvement. Would recommend to anyone who wants a quality racket without having to spend a lot of money.

Super racquet, great power delivery, and accuracy, very light and comfortable in the hand. It was so good that I purchased a second racquet as a spare, for my bag.
