    Hi, i have one ti-10 and it is a very good racket but not so good in the defense. I am thinking to take another one or i will take arcsaber 10, because i have heard the arcsaber 10 is similar with ti-10 and better in defence.

    Can someone give me a comparison between this 2 racket?

    I just bought myself a Arc10.
    What you should know about my is im a beginner (played 3 times since the stop 8 years ago when I played for 1 year).
    I don't regret buying it.
    Although I haven't tried that many other rackets (only my GF MP-22) I can say it's easy to play with.
    I love how easy it is to to clear. It feels like it is the racket is doin the job, i just keep it at the right spot.
    Since I'm terrible at smashing I can't say much about this.
    Again, I'm a beginner, so don't take my word as the truth, but my honest subjective oponion is that the racket is really nice.

    I have both racquets and I use the ARC10 more often as Ti10 is not easy to use. As I play doubles mostly, the ARC10 gives good smash and defence as compared to the Ti10 which is stronger in offence.

    BTW, the Ti10 that I have is the 1st generation which I believe is the hardest to use.

    I have the Arc10 and it's really quite good. It may take some time to get used to but that depends on the person. I agree that continuous smashing is very easy with the Arcsaber but there's still loads of feel.

    Haha, the At250 1st Generation (green) is too, a racket that is very hard to master.

    Ti-10 gen 2 very powerful in smash and good in every aspect, not superb but can still considering as good to very good
    Arc10 superb in control, feel and manuver and yes very good also in defense but for me arc10 is average in smash power.
    Ti-10 and Arc10 surely different type. Ti-10 for smash based play and Arc 10 for control play also dont forget the price different :p

    Hmmm, I tried a AT500 before and the feeling from it is vague. Seems like the lower end Armortec series doesn't have much feel.

    At least with AT700 or the AT900, you know what type of racquets they are.

    The 1st and 2nd generation ti-10's have similar balance points.

    Ive been playing with ti-10s (2nd gen) for a year and I must say they are awesome! Its head heavy (despite what it says on the shaft) which adds some power to smashes and clears but also very light, making it easier to defend and manuever shots.

    I agreed that TI-10 2nd head heavy and can generate a lot of power strung with ti bg68 as compare with AT 900P( BG66).

    Well, in budget wise this is good racket. As for Ti-10 3rd, I felt that less power in smashing.

    Does everybody know that will Yonex still sell ti-10 2nd in market? Because I have asked every badminton shop owner, they keep saying 2nd and 3rd are same spec which I dont agree.

    Yes. Ti1-10 3rd(Purple-black) and Ti-10 2nd(Yellow-white). If you ever play these 2 rackets then you will say two different feeling...

    Having those two rackets.
    I think for both racket you can't be easily switch between them, IMHO
    As Ti-10 has shorter handle than Arch 10. I lost the momentum when switching between those two.

    The characteristic of those two rackets are almost the same, Arch 10 win little bit on the manuverability.

    3 gens of ti10 each has their own characteristics.1st gen is a hammer,2nd gen all round,3rd gen fast.That's is what i feel since i have 3 of them.Comparing to arc10,which i have sold,i guess the arc10 has no own special characteristic,except for the vibration damping.Anyway,if u let me choose,i'll still choose the 2nd gen.is
