    haha... yep... always read the fine prints :).

    Sorry buddy. The ArcZ was sold sometime back.. Seriously, it's quite a good racket but takes a bit of getting used to. I just do not see that much advantage for me over the TC700 so I stuck with the TC :).

    Exactly... but this new dude here is a bit of the kiasu type and want to choose the ultimate racket before parting his $$$ like in choosing lifetime companion hence all the did not make sense questions. I saw in many other threads as well.

    Hope given ample time he would learn.

    Taufik is using ARCZ-TH-painted ARC-10 in the current Yonex world championship.
    You can see the shape of his racket is exactly the same as ARC-10

    how would TH,CN,SP,UK,JP coded ARCZ make any differences one to another? as i realized, the price is quite different. TH coded is the cheapest and CN coded might be the most expensive, although they are the same ARCZ original! The quality? weight? stiffness?

    When they mention Arc Saber Z-TH, they are referring to the Arc Saber Z-Taufik H. special version, not the TH Coded Saber...

    I can relate myself to those who doesn't like the ArcSaber Z-slash, I guess.

    I've been using this cheap ass ProAce racket (about MYR80) since 1998. It has an egg-shaped head, full oval and 0% isometric. I've never bothered about racket models, technologies etc. Until recently where my mates told me that isometric rackets have bigger sweet spots (I didn't know what the hell is a sweet spot, I thought only girls have it :p ), and today's rackets are more aerodynamic.

    So I thought I'd look through all the latest or pass rackets and I didn't know they have rackets that are head-heavy, balanced weight, head light, stiff, flex etc. It was fun looking through all the new tech, brochures and adverts. Its like watching those "As Seen on TV" stuffs on the TV, those "I've been using XXX for only 3 weeks and look at my abs now!" kind of stuffs :D You know its bull crap but it can still be fun to watch them.

    So 1 day I borrowed my friend's nanospeed 9000 for a few games and I played like crap. Basically everything I did went wrong. Changed back to my cheap ass ProAce and never looked back :D

    Probably wont change it unless it snaps to 2.

    Totally agree with you there... why blame the racket when U urself can't get the sweetspot? Any racket u use, always hit the centre to get max power...

    You remind me of myself a few yrs ago ;)
    Actually when you used the NS9000 and played badly, that proofs that racket matters :)

    Is there really nobody here in this forum who are fans of ArcS Z-slash?

    1) control = 9.5, Very good control @ the net, precise shot, smooth clear
    defense = 8.5, need to adjust my gripping because of the long shaft
    attack = 10, Smash feels great and in tolerance
    2) Shaft stiffness = 8.5, Stiff as Arc10 but the longer shaft mean xtra flex
    3)feeling = a solid 10
    4)color = 10, I LIKE IT!! U could recognise it at a glance...
    5)accuracy in getting the shots on the line = 9
    6) others personal observation
    Observation? There are more people tend to dislike this weapon. I can't understand why... I'm just an amateur with a low intermediate skills but besides my new gel forza, this zslash has improved me as a player. My smash is definitely better(with the correct timing of course...) backhand improves a lot... not to mention backhand smash as well... drives and clear are easier than before and so much more... It lessen my defend a bit, but with a few adjustment and get use to, it was no problem...
    7)worth the money u invest?= 10
    of course!!!

    Overall = 9.4

    I just saw on yonex website today that they are promoting Yonex rackets with TH, LeeCW, & PGade signatures on it. but the rackets are nowhere to be found in their product listing. How would these rackets any different with non-signatured rackets with same model?
