    nice clone of yonex. ( especially the edge saber series )
    Cheap in price....
    ( 1 Arcsaber10 can get roughly 5-6 Edge saber10 )

    but yet it is a fragile racket....
    During clashes with Cab 20, my friend's apacs racket broke.
    Nothing even happen to the Cab20

    1 arcsaber 10 sold in uk for about 130 pounds in most online store, and usually come with free upgrade of strings and grip, centralsport even throw in free customize in form of markings on the racket, postage to uk is free also.
    1 edgesaber 10 sold in uk for 45 pounds which is offer price expired after xmas. To get new grip and string, cough out more cash. Need to pay for postage. So u might have to add another 15 pounds for strings, postage and grip. So total is about 60 pounds
    Also, apacs-sports take a looooong time to process order (i am talking from my experience with them, ur experience might be diff) and in their website, there is absolutely no contact number which is just grand, really.

    Well that is quick comparision.
    about the racket quality, i find es10 quite okay though i still prefer as10 a bit more (matter of personal preference) but the price tag for as10 as i mentioned above is 2x that of es. And when i use less expensive racket, i can let sis use it or go more agressive in double game =p

    @Terraglow: would be great if u can tell me where i can get cheap edgesaber, so i can give one to my sister ^^

    try to ask ur fren using cab20 crash with the most expensive in yonex range's racket ARCSABER10 see how the arcsaber10 will end up =D....maybe try to ask ur fren cab20 crash with my AMP90 see who will be more last longer =D....seriously...don't compared with cab's series...since it have most stronger frame in yonex range racket....

    and Cloning series is fragile but not AMP, Visible Hollow, Nano Pro which is under their own line =D

    My EdgeSaber 101 has collided with and got smacked by many original Yonex, it hasn't been heavily scratched by those accidents, not to mention got cracked or broken. Gotta admit that the paint job -scratch resistence- isn't as good as my Hart Infinite Nano Offensive 76, but since that particular racquet is around 50-60% more expensive, i can't fault Apacs for being as it is. That Hart racquet is simply amazing in resisting paint scratch or chipping, it might use a pretty good clear paint over it.
