    Yonex Arcsaber 5 is a new racket coming out, I believe it is in stock at Yonex USA. Retail should be around $175

    Would be great if it had the same control as the AS7 but with more power.

    :D Seldom before has there been so little talk about a new Yonex racquet. It's not a fake but the timing sure is strange unless they still want to get a piece of the christmas action [​IMG] [​IMG].

    Perhaps it's like a secret ploy. Ppl want the Z Slash, but they see a cheaper version so try that out instead? That was honestly the most unheralded new racket ever, not counting the new basic rackets.

    looks so fake, which reminds me of the ebay arc 8s and 6s ^^ but if it's real, it looks like a real economic buy!!

    It does seem like a poor knockoff, but Badminton Alley is HIGHLY legitimate, so there's no arguing with the proof, unless a Yonex representative comes right out and says that there is no ArcSaber 5.

    The funny part is that when you google arcsaber 5 the only results I get are this thread and the badminton alley page...

    Not saying it's a fake but maybe they had the page ready for when the racket is supposed to be officially released and their IT department goofed up?

    I also get a fake orange Arc 5 from ebay XD. If you search enough, badminton alley has a ton of pages not readily available on their website, but still exists. So I'm not surprised that this would be the case here.

    But since they seem to have brought in the Arcsaber line to replace the Muscle Power line, I'm not surprised to see a mid level entry. Its only a matter of when, not if, they release a lower level entry. I hope they never get rid of the carbonex line though. They might not be super technologically nanotechnology futuristic, but they are very good, very sturdy, very economical rackets.
