    The best racquet is based on you... Which one suits you more? Give each of them a hit and see which is best for you...

    do you mean arcsaber series? arc7, 9 or 10?

    you will have to test them all out to know which one is best suited for you if its the arcsaber series you're referring to.

    I mean, if you're a male, you probably don't want the arc9 (pink with hearts all over). in terms of power, definately the arc 10 (stiff, head heavy) good for smashing. arc7 (flex, even balance) good for defense, lacks power for attacking.

    Incorrect.

    Arc 10 and Arc 9 are not gender-specified. Although Yonex advertises the Arc 9 as designed for ladies, it is not necessarily so. Men can pretty much play with Arc 9 and have no problem at all and women can do so vice versa.

    i do own 3 of those rackets.. arc7,9 & 10.. (arc9 i bought for my gf.. :p)

    arc7.. nice defending racket.. but the offensive part lacks something.. i cant explain.. try it out urself

    arc9.. shaft not stiff.. good for those with weaker arm & wrist power.. tats y ppl said its meant for ladies.. but if u swing is not fast & hard.. it would be a good choice.. just mind those pink little lovely hearts on the racket.. lol!!

    arc10.. now my favourite racket.. well balanced... smash are like big bang.. lots of technology on it.. especially if u r a hard hitter.. the ultraPEF a good shock absorption tech. continous smashing wont make ur hand go numb or tired .. u can last longer :p

    I own the Arcsaber 10 and love it but you should try all of the Arcsaber range and see which is your favourite.

    true true.... the mechanics of the racket aren't gender specific, but the designs on them are.

    please do let me know when the first international male player starts using the arc9

    .... if a guy uses a pink racket with lots of love hearts on it (owns one and not just borrowing for a hit), then........:confused:

    what chaos2blue has stated are very nice descriptions of each racket as I have also tried all 3 (the arc9 being my sister's). it all depends on personal feel when testing out the rackets and feels right for you I guess each person adapts more better to certain rackets.

    I love my arc7 :D

    I know it's weird to see mens playing with a pink coloured racket,But still it won't stop some male players playing well with ARC9 and so does some female players vice verse.In some situation,there is a possibility that the males plays better with ARC9 or females with ARC 10.It's all back to their own playing style.

    I have ARC 10 and my lady friend the ARC 9. I must say that the ARC 9 is a very nice racquet as the defence is really good and power ain't too shabby also.

    I pick Arc10 because of the design (at first time xD... It's "macho" lol). But I believe this racket is a good one.

    My guess is Arc9, is not gender limited, I would say... This product may be used by men. They're design for weak wrist right? That means your power will be amplified
    eq :
    for thin / weak men who love to play tactical, this racket can turn you into a power player. (probably xD... Just a guess lol).

    I have yet to try the Arc9, but I've tried the other two. Arc10 is my favorite for the moment and Arc7 is a bit too flex. Arc9 seems to be a flex racquet too, I'll try it someday if I can borrow one from the female players out there. Haha...

    Practice and practice its key to winning
    I believe a technique and power ,
    Thats that you can't buy
