    haha, I am not to pissed, it was more of a joke ;D .. But I guess the distance to Denmark is not THAT much less then Sweden from Japan :p :) .. so i don't think the distance (with todays air-delivery) is a major issue :D

    BTW i noted Your review was 3U, have you had a chance to test the 2U, Ants?

    Me too. Struggling to choose between 2U and 3U. Currently using 2nd generation Ti-10 2U 29x31lbs, BG65ti.

    Ants, are you hinting that it is similar to the ti swing power of old? I would be inclined to go for the 3U unless the 2U offers considerably more power. Manoevarability and control is more important for me. What do you think?

    Ants how would you rate the Arc10 power compare to NS9000X and AT900P power?

    What do you mean by 2nd generation of Ti-10 and the new Ti-10? 2nd generation meaning the long one and new meaning the yellow? Or do I have it wrong.

    Yes which ones are you exactly referring it to? ^_^?

    The old Ti-10 perked up its ear when you said those bold statements.

    Mostly I really need to know because I'm going to buy at $300+ Ti-10 2u pretty soon. X_X.

    It is quite easy, buy some 800 and 1200 grid sandpaper + 1 can of flat black model paint. :D

    2nd generation refers to post 2001 production for old version of Ti-10. If i didn't get it wrong, the 2nd generation of old Ti-10 is less head heavy than the 1st generation.

    New Ti-10 refers to the new colour schemed Ti-10 which is headlight.
    I tink ants meant that. Not sure though..need his confirmation....

    I don't think thats what he means. Since I don't think he would believe the headlight version of the Ti-10 is better than the head heavy one. :eek:

    I wonder.. when will the Apacs clone of the ArcSaber10 be released ? :D
    I think it's going to be called EdgeSaber10.. like the old EdgeSaber7.

    Does this new racket actually have the "Power Armor System"? Some sites mention it but the official ones don't say it on the pictures,
