    Matt, I bet yours are still brand new. With your collection, how do you figure which racquet to use or bring every time you go play?

    Loved it even more playing last night. So consistently positve:). Getting another one today for backup;).

    I bought a 3U G5 Arc8DX SP and tried it out last night. I would concur with the comments below. Its plays like an Arc7 and have a solid feel as Matt and Ants pointed out.

    imho I find the 3U Arc10 more forgiving, easier to use and less demanding than the 3U Arc7/8DX.

    Why does it take so long for certain stores to put out the Arc8 and Arc5...(particularly sohubuy...whom hasn't replied to any of my e-mails...)?

    I sold my Arc 10 a few months ago so I don't have one to compare to get a comparision. Chilli could possibly to compare for you.

    If they are one of the top selling stores to Yonex, they would be getting the goods fast. Stores who dont' reply to email, I would just shop somewhere else.

    He doesn't answer mine...-sigh-...want to ask him for me...? I'd really only want to buy from sohubuy because it's the cheapest place to buy most rackets...

    can you PM me the email you sent? i'm asking because it might not be the same email and I think Wongor (a BCF member) is affiliated with the store and he had asked other BCF members to send him emails as well. I am trying to find the thread right now where he mentioned it.

    I was at his store the other day (Wednesday afternoon) to pick up a racket and I did not see any Arc8DX or Arc5.

    Just pm u, Babyface.

    Used the Arc8 again last night, and definitely is "the Racquet" for me. 3 straight singles:D! Consistency is the key. Accuracy and power come in quite naturally. Lost 3 games 4 weeks ago before the Arc8 came along, playing the same fella. Will be selling the 2 A900Ps soon!!:)

    Nice find! But I thought AT900P was head-heavier than AT900T...and that NS9900 was actually below the x-axis...hmm.

    I have a question about the yonex chart. Lets say the AS8DX would be exactly as head heavy as the NS9900. Does the NS9900 provide more power but less control?

    Lighter racquet...faster swing...more power...maybe...but less solid punch. TBH uses it and has no problem. I tried it and gave it up...personal preference.

    I would have thought NS9900 was weaker because it's generally much lighter and you'd have to put more of your strength into it to generate any power...

    sohubuy finally has the Arc8 up for $142...but...it's prolly SP coded since it's more expensive than Arc10 TW coded >___>

    I'm waiting for your review, Ants? Like some others, curious to see the differences to the Arc-Z.
