    Hi all, I've tried using Arcsaber 10 and Nanospeed 9900 for a few months each and the former felt a bit :confused:heavy for me as I only play doubles and the latter, although it feels much lighter, seems to take a toll on my wrist and shoulder due to its extra stiff shaft.

    Could anyone please recommend me a flexier alternative ? One that feels light and friendlier to the wrist / shoulders.

    Personally I'm looking at Arcsaber 7 or the new Nanoray 800.. Would appreciate any help here :).

    i only have the arcs and i can say that for doubles the 7 will be a bit easier to maneuver than the 10. i find the 10 sluggish at best.

    In my opinion I find the voltric 80 to be similar to the arcsaber 10 but faster in doubles. Maybe try a 4u if you think arc 10 is too slow.

    that's exactly how I felt with the arcsaber 10, plenty of power to hit the smashes but not easy to maneuver at the net area.

    I've tried using my brother's Voltric 80, didn't like the head heavyness.
