    Don't really want to say b/c they don't take pre-orders. They make exception for "good" customer. I think "good" means customer that buy frequently from them?

    Should be available to ship mid-March. We did not discuss about the price, so I don't know. So I basically told them the size I want. One to be strung, and the other not.

    Haha, Yonex designers seems to have gotten inspired by the SOTX woven 9... Maybe the ARC10 is a just a W9A clone :D :D

    btw, I will get it 10/3... I was so pissed with the Yonex rep, that I get it later than Ants and Gade :).. But he told me I will get it earlier, once i beat Gade consistently :D :D

    It is head heavy. Its a combination of AT700 and Ti-10 with easy swing of NS9000.

    Yup, Its easy swing and the power it produce make its easier for offence or attack.

    In your mind
    How does it compare to the Ti-10 in durability and attacking power?

    Cannot compare with Ti-10... Arc 10 is in a league of its own. Probably more of the flex and torque. Attacking power is better than ti-10.

    The 2nd version of ti-10. The new Ti-10 is better than the 2nd version.

    How does Arc10 power compare to NS9000X and AT900P power?

    Like what i've mentioned last year in my ArcSaber 7 review that there is more to come in 2008. This Arcsaber 10 would be one of the best racket to use.

    Wow.. I wonder who will start using this racquet. Peter Gade and Zhang Ning already switched from their AT700. Is there a possibility that Lin Dan will switch to the Arc10 too ?

    Don't be pissed with your Yonex Rep. Probably you got it late due to location. Its far from Japan to your area.
