    Sweet.

    Already been confirmed. It's the same as 10 or 7. e frame itself looks a bit thicker, however the shaft is thinner.

    Some distortion in that shot, but I'll take your word it's the same as the 7/10.

    The picture was taken at an angle if you mean that. Usually taking it straight on introduces some unintended reflections since I am using flash.

    I finally used the Arc 8 DX last night (3UG4). Feels quite good in terms of the playability since it plays and feels similar to that of Arc 7.

    The differences is the stiffness as it is a bit stiffer and it does feel a little on the light side swings a little fast compared to Arc 7, therefore you need to adjust the timing a bit. Other than that, I believe it's a pretty good racket to use.

    I will most likely interchange between the two but not switch to ARC8DX permanently.

    Yes I do. I need a bit more time to adapt because of the timing. I played one casual play with Arc 8 DX and training trying getting used to it. When it came to real game, then I switched back to Arc 7.
