From the Manufacturer
YONEX VOLTRIC 8 LD
Combining incredible power and fast racquet handling, VOLTRIC is the perfect racquet for players seeking exceptional ‘all-round’ performance. VOLTRIC's exclusive TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM achieves the combination of heavy smashes and speedy racquet handling.
Traditionally, extra weight at the top of the racquet frame has increased hitting power but reduced the speed of racquet handling. In contrast, a lighter top to the frame increases speed but causes a loss of hitting power.
For the first time, the new TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM successfully combines the contrasting characteristics of exceptional power and great handling. YONEX has developed a racquet which achieves the combination of heavy smashes and speedy racquet handling.Voltric is Power:
The stiff racquet 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.
New Grommet Pattern
The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.
The square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length, as well as the horizontal strings to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions
Moulded deep into the layers of graphite where the frame connects with the shaft, the YONEX Built-in T-Joint creates a durable and high-strength one-piece frame that is torque-free.
The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.

Seller:- LANAI PROSHOP (Hope I got the name right)
The product looks fake initially but don't worry. I got the product verified officially via Sunrise (who sells Yonex products officially in India). The thought this product is fake till I verified my product. (You should verify as there are fake ones in the market). Actually there were 2 products with same name and different prices and this one was cheaper hence I got it checked.
Now coming to the racquet, it's definitely not for beginners and also not for those who want a lot of power boost in their smashes. This racquet comes in 4U weight category so the smashing will require some more power than the likes of MP29 Light (I have that too). But anybody who has the knowledge of the technique of smashing can get brilliant results from this. Voltric series is known for combination of power and racquet speed (due to it's tri-voltage technology, don't worry you won't get an electric shock bcoz of that technology). Shots were accurate, racquet speed was good (once I thought I was playing with Nanoray).
What is special about Lin Dan Edition?
You might ask the above question as you might have seen two versions of some Voltrics for example Voltric 7 and Voltric 7 Lin Dan Edition. What's different between them is the decals and badminton graphics. In Lin Dan edition you get a very good looking racquet which you can show off (also show off your friends how die-hard fan you are and how much you love and respect Lin Dan). Otherwise the performance is more or less the same.
Bottom Line:- Looked fake, was original, great price, absolute performer, under 5K. Do I need to say anything else? Hope that helps.
