    Is there anyone knows what are the uses that the ArcSaber 10 has? Also, is there any review about Arc 10 and its strength and weakness?

    It would be a great help if anyone can explain. Yonex website are kinda confusing.:rolleyes:

    Thank you

    It is also confusing me for couple of days. Arc10 seems more powerful than NS9000S. But the seller told me it was a balance racket. And it is hard to control, as i see it, unless you've learned enough skills.

    I find the ARC10 to be less powerful than many high-end rackets.

    Not that the racket is weak, it depends if you can release its full potential. But I believe that's generally true for every racket, even them lovely Isometric series.:D

    Thanks~

    i find the 10 to be more powerful than my 900P...don't get me wrong, the 900P is powerful, but i guess it's the flex of the 10 that gives it that extra oomph...just my opinion

    I agree with you too! COming from a 3U AT900P, I feel that my shots have become a little more powerful, but most importantly i can play my shots more consistently due the to shaft being a little less stiff as compared to the AT900P.

    Jung Jae-Sung seems to smash "pretty well" with his Arc 10 - just watch the AE 2008 final...

    Btw, that video - most I've laughed all week. I like to think my reaction would be a bit more measured than those guys', but it probably wouldn't :)

    I agree, with what you have said.
    I formally used an isometric 20 VF.

    It was my first yonex racquet and i have been using it for many many years.
    Till now, although i have transited to an Armortec250 and the arcsaber 10, my isometric still does feel comparable to these 2 racquets, in terms of smashing power, control ect.

    He did use an Arc 7 in every round except the final and an Arc 10 for the final itself. He also used the Arc 10 for his only Beijing match:(.

    Why are most of your post about which racket is stiffer?
