    The ArcSaber 10 has arrived here in KK, Sabah... the price was RM 849 = USD 240 (roughly)... far too expensive beyond my reach... sigh.. but i was surprised to find it had arrived here already, kinda early... normally it would take a few months for new rackets to arrive...

    was surprised by the redness of it... hehe... but nice racket....

    m yoda - i did exactly the same (well, almost...mine're 4U TH), but ended up selling off the 3U JP after using it twice. messed up the timing of my shots completely.

    does anyone know if anyone in AE08 using the Arcsaber10? Gao Ling's normally very adventurous with new racquets...

    and does anyone know when this racquet will be available at shops in BKK? going there in july...considering swapping my AT900Ts for this new kid on the block! (so to speak) :p

    Initial Thoughts

    Used it today to play Singles.

    Didn't really feel there is much difference between AS7 and AS10 to be honest. It was strung at 24x26 lbs with NBG 98. Will probably do a full review after using it for a couple more times.

    3U > 4U!! =)

    I'll have to have to see when I get my racket. 25.5/27.5 via NGB98 yeehah!! That's only on my ARC7, ARC10 will most likely be the same.

    so far a few people mention that Arc 10 feels very similar to Arc 7. :confused: As far as I know Arc 7 feel really flexible and very low power. However, it will be easy for people who have slower swing speed. Is this the case? can anyone who already have the Arc 10 help verify.

    Thank you

    Dan

    Dan,

    I agree with you about the Arc 7. My buddy just got one recently and I tried it last night. I found it to be abit too flexible fro my liking. I can't vouch for the Arc 10, but my understanding is that it is stiffer than the Arc 7.

    I'm not trying to say the Arc 7 doesn't have power. In fact I thought it faired just fine in that department. I just am not a fan of the medium stiffness of the racquet is all. lol.

    Arc7 is good using your snapping powers.

    Went to the Yonex All England Open today :) The ArcSaber 10 was launched this week in the UK and is currently only on sale at the All England Open.
    Got a ArcSaber 10 which feels great. It is was described to me as 'stiffer' than the the Arc 7. I have played with a Arc 7 which had a really good feel.
    I am looking forward to comparing the two tomorrow night at training. :p

    I just tried a few swing with ArcSaber 10 , it's fell more stiffer and solid compare to Arc Saber 7 , to me it's good for attcking or rapid firing player, the racket frame look more slim compare to amourtec series , just a little bit maybe because of difference shape , The colour WOW! it's actract me.. The Glowing red and white with red grip.. it look nice , more more better than amourtec series , the "down side" is .. The price for this item to me toooo..... expensive RM850.00 (US$244.96) with string ( in East Coast of Malaysia Penisular, Kuala Terengganu Town). Yesterday evening , my buddies , my regular stringer (He also racket shop owner) just strung it 27lbs, it look good... but to me it depend on your playing style , i just strung my racket at 25.5lbs with BG68 titanium for my amourtec 900T

    Hi, I just found out price for ArcSaber 10 and it costs RM680 without string.

    Is it normal for the racket in this price?

    Cheers.

    In Singapore, with string, grip and cover, the price is S$266. Go figure out.

    Thanks.

    In KL, in general the initial price will be around RM610. In six months time, a seller with volume sales will able to sell it for around RM550. In particular this what was happened to AT900 series.

    Regards

    So it's normal for this racket at this price.

    I will be getting one and the shop gotta order it from KL (I'm in Penang anyway).

    Thanks everyone!
