    The top-of-the-line 'Made in Taiwan' Arcsaber. Racquet feels solid and the paintwork and furnish is comparable or almost comparable to the Japan-made racquets. I couldn't find any flaw for this particular piece.

    Did you try the racquet or just take photos? There doesn't seem to be any wear on the Yonex logo.
    Also the string in the racquet isn't a yonex string, so did you restring it, if so what tension did you try it at?

    Did I ever said I have tried playing with them? It is new and the picture was taken in the shop. By the way how could you tell they are not Yonex strings? Some Yonex 'Made in Taiwan' racquets are factory-strung before they are shipped out in case you are ignorant of this fact.

    Chillax, I asked - Did you try the racquet or just take photos? - Because you said the racquet feels solid, I though that had implied you had maybe had a hit with it, maybe not this exact one.
    The reason I asked about the strings is because nowhere on the strings does it have the make and model of the strings, so I was curious about what string you had used to try it, but clearly you have not tried it.
    I am sorry for this 'major' misunderstanding and my 'ignorance'

    After more than 10 yrs of absence from badminton court (been playing basketball), this is the first racquet I bought to come back to play with my friends. I own an antique Eptif wide body racquet before this one. The reason of buying this model is that I want a stiff feel racquet, as the Eptif I have is just too soft and gives me no power when smashing.

    I also let my friends try on Arcsaber 009 DX, some of them like it because of its extra stiffness results in sharp smashes. But it's quite tiring when using it for long rally and repetitive lobs, maybe I have to get some strength training in order to have better control over this racquet. Overall I'm quite happy with the feel of this racquet, but will get another stiff/medium feel racquet to tell the differences.

    Cheers

    Warrior 7 Is kewl :D but i still don't have enough money and it seems to head heavy for my taste :S
    while I heard that tornado 800 maneuver is slow
    and enigma 900 hard to adapt
    IDK about kaldera lol :D

    Still wondering Yonex AS009DX Vs 008 Vs Vt 5 vs Apacs Nanotech 700 limited vs Apacs Z-rapier
    I know to much choices right :D :p
    My style is Between All Round and Offensive

    well here's warriors 7 has a lighter frame compared to tornado 800... tornado 800 is slow to handle coz it has a heavy frame with stiff shaft... and enigma 900 has a stiffer frame plus heavier racket (only strong arm can easily handle it)... :) well, rather than u choose 008 or vt 5, i think u can go for 009dx ... the design is solid and i think the price is affordable for a high modulus grapgite racket (btw vt5 is carbon graphite racket only) :)
