    The more I see of these 2 rackets the more i like them.

    Wonder what new tech will be added to these old models.

    I can see the AT700 has the new grommets.

    Thinner nanotube shaft maybe?

I think they're going matte black again - but i dont think the arc 10 would have the same sticker issues as the vt-zf - for one, i dont think they are stickers. Who knows? looks better and better the more i look at it

    I'm really tempted by the 700; an awesome looking racket. I used to own several 2nd gen AT700s and loved them. I wonder though, will the Premium 700 play and feel different to the old 700 in light of the 'new' stringing pattern?

    The AT700 Premium 4U G5 is winging its way over to me from HK right now. It should arrive in over a weeks time with a ZF 3U G5. Look out for the review as I compare it with the Voltrix Z force 4U G5, an the ZF 3U G5 with my favourite BG80 strings.

    my understanding the issuance of AT700 & ARC10 Premium Edition are for limited production and related to the Olympic 2012. Thus the continuation of current regular edition of ARC10 shall still prevail.

    cmiiw.

    Yea clawhammers that's what I thought. But maybe its a marketing ploy by yonex, (removing the 2012 of course) to revive the line before replacing it.

    Yes i agree that the regular Arc 10 shall still be produced despite the issuance of the Premium Edition unless Yonex wants it otherwise. The timing of 2012 Olympic Games just right with their long term plan to release a new line replacing Arcsaber line. As what they have done with Armortec & Nanospeed. However several AT such as AT900P & AT900T, NS9900,NS6600, etc are still in the YY product catalog at least for the year of 2012, despite the issuance of Voltric & Nanoray series.

    I guess we need to wait for further guidance from silentheart or Evil Empire.
