    uh, Arcsaber 9?
    that is your best bet right there. same specs, feel, and all that jazz, right when you need it.

    oh. well thats a whole nother speach..

    the arcsaber 9 is er very flexible racket.. that means you have to kompromise the feeling and easyness with power.. so you should maybe try out the arc 10 or a NS9000 S .. you sure need stiffness in you racket to smash harder and just get the extra 'punch'

    tha arc9 is designed for womens and thats why it might dosn't feels like you get enough power becouse of the flexabillity..

    so if i were you i would pick a NS9000S just becouse i see that the arc9 has build in nanospeed, so its might the racket wich matches the arc 9 best, but is stiffer ( you get more power)

    hope you understand what im saying ;)

    Got it, thanks. I'll try NS9000S. Hope my weak wrist can take the challenge.

    I was wondering the same... I've got 3 different tensions on 3 different racquets. Arc10@21lbs, NS8000@22lbs, AT900T@24lbs. Hardest smash is Arc10@21lbs. Best control is AT900T. Best defense is NS8000. Hope that enlightens you. :D

    The Type-S is a stiff headlight version of the even balance medium flex Arc9. Power will only come out of the Type-S if you can swing even faster than you do now to compensate for the weight shift. The good thing about the Type-S is that it'll speed up your play, but powerwise, depending on your stroke, a At900T might be better suited. I personally would opt for a AT900T if you want some added thump!

    Well... OptiBlue said AT900T (Technique) not AT900P (Power). AT900P puts too much pressure on your arm if you don't have a strong arm. The head-heaviness can be a burden during play and you certainly don't want that.;)
