    Hi guys,

    I've been considering on getting a new racquet after playing for 5years using arc10 and recently I came across Arcsaber 008DX which I think it looks pretty good for my condition. From what I saw on the Internet that it says it has an extra stiff shaft and a little bit of head heavy? I'm quite sure that I'm alright with the weight because I've been playing for quite a while.. the weight shouldn't be a problem for me but what I'm worried about is that how does it feel like when using it? Anyone who has used Arcsaber 008DX before could you give me some comments on it? Many thanks. :)


    P.S: I couldn't really afford too expensive rackets such as VTZF or VT80. That's part of the reason that I've chosen Arc 008DX.

    Btw, I've two more rackets which are musclepower 22 and nanospeed 500 but most of the times (70-80%) I'm using arc 10.

    I'd be interested in the review for the 008DX as well.

    On the side, how different is the 008DX compared to the 8DX?

    According to the catalogue... 009DX and 008DX are extra stiff flex... other than that.. are there any differences when between the play of the 2 racquets?

    play varies individually at times.

    009dx comes with SUPER HMG, you read about on yonex webpage

    both 008dx and 009dx are made in taiwan
