    Is there a victor racquet that is very similar to the Arcsaber 10?
    Or any other racquet?
    I would like to buy one thats just like the arc 10, but with a cheaper price ;)

    i think u can try super nano pro 6. it's stiff, slight head heavy, slim shaft and aero frame. the design almost like arc10. FYI i got super nano pro 7(less stiff than 6) and like it.

    i bought it at rm220 full set, shud b slightly expensive than other place coz tat shop is known to sell a bit expensive, but is my regular stringer

    i hv a ti10 white n yellow and apacs amp90(sold) n i feel:

    off: nano 7=ti10>amp90
    def: nano 7=amp90>ti10

    although i oni used 5 hrs but i hv a feel tat it's going to be a good racket

    Brave sword is easier to use than Arc10, the power is more accessible, overall a more "friendly" racquet than Arc10.

    I don't remember any Victor Rackets having as thin a frame as Arc10. but SOTX Woven 16 is quite close to Arc10.

    hehehehe that's interesting but i agree, arc10 is very demanding...
    brave sword frame not thin but sharp like a blade, so theoritical it can move more fast.....that's why i tempted to know how fast that racket compare to Arc10 which i feel as the fastest racket from YY (i never tried NS series :D)
    Woven 16 is fast but heavy feel, arc 10 more lighter ( even balance feel ) but thanks anyway :)

    I won't rate Arc10 as one of the most demanding racquets, just that in comparison to Victor Brave Sword, it is more demanding. In terms of demanding, i think the RSL X2 series are the most demanding racquet I have ever used.

    Demand in my case is hard to adapt :D Arc 10 is the most difficult YY i ever use.
    I believe demand in your term is stiff? RSL X2 series i heard is the most stiffer racket in the market and i really want to try if i have achance to get it ;)
    Back to topic again, seems not many Victor Brave Sword user around.....:eek:

    Well, demanding not necessary has to be the stiffest racquet though in general terms, stiff racquets are more demanding. I have stiff racquets like Ti10, AT700 Limited, Mizuno TC700 etc but some how, the RSL is more demanding than those. It could be the design or the material or something else which altogether make it a racquet which I can't get the hang of it.

    I have used the RSL X2 AP and able to generate decent power from it, but I know that it can do more, just that I can't use it effectively.

    I am a Brave Sword user and of all the top end racquet, I must say that it is the easiest to use, the power might not be as strong as say the AT700 Limited/Mizuno TC700 but it is more accessible. It is also easier to defend with than AT700/TC700.

    Again, this applies only to me though, other user may have different opinion, different strokes for different people.

    Waaaaah, another TC700 ? Today i got a clash with a beginner and my TC700 flew out of my hand ! I was shocked, and when I look at the racquet, there is a small chip on the shaft, sob sob. I will remind myself not to use a expensive racquet if I partner with a beginner.

    I heard that there is a new Brave Sword 09 coming out soon, you may want to wait for it and see which one is more suitable. From the specs, seem like the 09 version is less stiff and also comes with shockless grommets similar to the Artery Tec.

    hoaaa.....but i like stiff, not extra stiff or medium stiff.....just stiff :D but shockless grommet is interesting. Let see.......i'll think again about Victor but TC 700 is 100% must get, i need a backup if something happen to my old one as i plan to use it as my main racket :D Thx 4 info...:D:D:D:D

    4 is still not enough ? You want to buy the factory ? :p

    I bought 2 but the one that I am using has some chip marks, the latest courtesy of a beginner that I partner with last nite. He clashed with me so hard that the racquet flew out of my hand and I thought it is a goner ! However, racquet is still ok, except for a chip on the shaft, must say that the TC700 is really sturdy.
