    It is specially designed for women. No there is no men color for ARC9. However men can still use the pink racket.

    It is a very user friendly racquet and a lot of guys like it. Just not the color.

    Is the AT900P only a a men's racket?
    Will men die from contact with the ARC9?

    A Racket is a Racket. It usually never matters what gender it is for.

    I saw a lot of pink shirts for guys. It's a matter of person's mind.

    I have tried all the Arc Sabers and I think the Arc9 is a very good racquet. It really falls in between the Arc7 and Arc10 in terms of power/control/speed. If not because of the color and the hearts, I may have gotten one !

    There is no problem for men using a pink racket. As i've mention... Yonex design the Arc9 for female in mind. Even the color and the design gears towards the female market.

    Arc 9 - good racquet

    Hi baddy enthusiasts,

    I find the Arc 9 a very nice racquet to play with, good feel. My wife has two of it and i have one. I don't have a problem about the colour of the racquet.

    When you're playing against an opponent and winning......i doubt he'll be bothered to know what racquet you are using.......it's about individual preference and if they can play well with it......why not?

    Try the Arc 9, you might just like it.........just my two cents worth......

    Cheers!:D

    the Arc9 is advertised as a women's racket - a quote I remember saying that it would "bring out the elegance and grace" of women's play. Definitely clear what Yonex intends...

    Should rather get the Arcsaber 10 - about same price, but different specs (more power).

    it matches well with a pink lamboghini as well.

    Honestly the arc9 looks well colored.

    I watched yesterday a final men double match at a local tourney and let me tell you the guy using Arc9 was hitting bombs and returning very powerful smashes like nothing, whereas myself with some manly black head heavy racket meakly lost in first round ;)
