    going from a 4u to 2u is quite a big leap
    if you don't have any injuries, i suggest u try to adapt to the weight
    it will make u stronger
    if u can adapt to it, it will bring u A LOT of power

    Yeah was thinking of that too. And will do lots of wrist exercises at the same time.
    But I've the feeling that it's a little too heavy. Sigh...

    i think it's too early to judge. play with it more and clear the negative thought of it being a little too heavy
    then you'll be fine. just think that it's only a few GRAMS heavier..how heavy can these few grams be..and you'll feel and perform better :D

    Ok thanks for the encouragement. :)
    Even though I know that 'few' grams actually mean a lot lol but I shall try to block those negative thoughts and develop super arm and wrist strength. :D

    Oh yeah, does anyone know where to check the apacs serial number?
    Or it's just too 'cheap' an item for them to actually have an online database?

    Read dinkalots review. IMO the edgesaber 10 is lighter and more flexible then the orginal ARC10 which I have.

    Oh ok, in terms of power ? Is it at all powerful ? And does it have the same balance as the Arc10 ? I.e. Is it even balanced like the Arc10 or is it more/less head heavy ?

    I say less powerful and even balanced with overgrip and strings. Sold it to a friend and he really liked it but still says the orginal is better.

    But for $35 is it worth it ? I am just looking for a cheap racket to play doubles with, and/or when I am too tired to use my head heavy super stiff, SW35.:) I don't want to spend a lot of money for a change, just looking for a cheapish racket, that looks like a high end one.:) I suppose it's a lot better than a fake at the end of the day.

    I already have a Yonex NanoSpeed 9900, I would rather try a Edgesaber, or the Apacs clone of the AT700, any idea where I can get the clone of the AT700 ? And what is it called?

    check the other various apacs website but I doubt there's any left. It's been a while and the other AT clones are disappearing as well.
