    one question matt, are you planning to get the ARC10 from japan? If you are just wondering if I can order along with you, since I don't think I have enough to order from shuttle house...

    Yeh but the free racket is kind of gift/payment isn't it?

    I would gladly write a review for a free £120 racket before it was even released to the public.

    Why would you want the SP one instead of the JP one? JP's are of a higher quality.

    Hmmm...I tink the demo version (the black one Gade was holding) looks nicer than the first few pictures that were posted here....a lot of racquets that come out nowadays have too much silver or bright or funny colours in them....i've been waiting like forever for Yonex to make something that could succeed the old Ti-10...it was crappy enough to bring out the new Ti-10...they shud have given the new Ti-10 some other name.....haiz..anyways, the Black A.Saber looks like it may be able to take over Ti-10 in the looks department....if possible, in the performance department too....hopefully, the black won't be too shiny...........

    and guys...u r all being hard on ants.....asking him to compare the racquet with all the previous ones is realli troublesome....imagine he'd have to refer to all his reviews before....or go for another practice session with all the racquets.......it's understandable that u guys are so curious n excited....so am i, after seeing the Black Magic.....

    ants....in your free time, maybe u could construct a table for the famous racquets u have done reviews for.....u could include the important specs n important performance quality.......so that in future, if u have a new racquet to review on, u could just add on the review of that racquet to the already constructed table.....and the excited forumers wouldn't bug u to compare with the racquet of their choice everytime..........jus my opinion....:)

    Thanks for your imput. It will be helpful if someone can come out with the table and i will input the details. I'm really busy and have no time doing all these stuffs really.
    Using the samples,demo rackets and testing, bending , hitting reviewing has been a little troublesome for me since i have do it discreetly and at the same time with my hectic travelling schedules. Good thing i have a place to test it out without worry.

    The price of this racket is not as high as it claims to be ^.^ I can say the street price is in that range!

    that i understand, and to be honest, i've no qualms about getting a JP. but now, with CNY over, I JUST WANT IT (!!!!) regardless of JP or SP as all the lai sees will cover the cost!!:D:p

    had a look at the link andrew provided, and you guys got it right - BCL, LCW and PG. it's definitely playing with FIRE, but hopefully my game will be the same!! :cool::p;)

    I ordered from Shuttle House, recently placed an order for other items and the sales rep called me to confirm the item, then I asked him about the Arc 10, he said i can place the order now, the rackets are suppose to be available in mid-March.

    I didn't ask for the price, I assume it will be roughly around the price of the AT900 and NS9000.
