    Picture (and photographer) quality sucks, but here's a few pics of the new ArcS11 and ArcS-FB.

    I couldn't compare with ArcS10 because they did not have it (discontinued). Did take a few with the z-slash, but they're pretty bad, I only had like a minute to take pictures.

    Must be from the light that it looked like the cone had extra bezels like below (Taufik Z):

    Did you notice about the cones above by any chance? Not something I normally pay much attention to myself ...
    I take it the Z-Slash frame was smaller as per the last pic? You managed to make them look quite even in the other pic :D

    LOL yeah, Z-Slash frame was smaller and shaft was a lot longer.

    Didn't notice the cone, sorry :\ From the look on my pics, they look pretty round.

    I forgot my catalog at the store, but both rackets felt quite stiff and are rated as stiff. They did not feel head heavy at all, but it's hard to judge without strings. They did feel great in my hands though (again, doesn't mean much :p)

    The new technology in the FB makes the shaft materials more slim, allowing it to be lighter without breaking more. I don't remember the ArcS11 introducing any new technology, but I'll have to look again to make sure..

    IF Arc Z Slash does not exist, Arcsaber 11 looks like a combination between Arc10 and Lining N55.

    Not sure I get what you meant there.... :D But to me, it's like 10+Z with a little hint of Z-Force.

    Get to hold the Arc11, swing with it, feeling it is just like BS12, very flex, and head light, I wondered why this day so many balanced racket, in fact I should say the feeling is quite closed to Arc10 but head is lighter for my personal feeling.

    We did not hold the same racket then! It felt quite stiff to me, felt like ArcS 10.

    Problem is I have to stock up on AT900T's and Arc10's before I think about getting this, not to mention the MX-JJS as well.
