    hey matt give us a review on it!!!!!! . the information in badmintonalley.com says that it is stiffer than the arc7 but is it stiffer than the arc10?

    the technology are
    • Cup-Stack Carbon Nanotube : The new Cup-Stack Carbon Nanotube resembles multilayered cups uniformly stacked together providing increased durability and improved flexibility.
    • Single Piece Grommet System : This single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes, creating a high-performance stringing pattern that puts 7% more durability.
    • Isometric : The Isometric Square Head Shape equalizes the length of main and cross strings in the stringbed, enlarging the sweetspot for more consistent accuracy even on off-center hits.
    • Built-in T-Joint : Moulded deep into the layers of graphite where the frame connects with the shaft, the YONEX built-in T-Joint creates a durable and high-strength one-piece frame that is torque-free.
    • Control Support Cap / C.S. Cap : Control Support Cap provides 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easy gripping, fast swing-through and the quickest manoeuvrability.

    Sunrise Singapore had it their warehouse for quite a while and just waiting for the date to ship to the different retail outlets in the region (SP). The stringers are busy stringing with the standard BG65 for those outlets who requested stringed racquets in their orders.

    The 'date' is still unknown whether it is going to be before or after Christmas or after the New Year.

    Matt, you've got an Arc-ZS haven't you? Could you maybe give a comparison in stiffness and frame profile between it and the Arc 5? I'm guessing that the Arc 5 is more like the 7 and 10 than the ZS in terms of frame shape but I'm interested to find out about the stiffness.

    Arc 7 is medium stiff while arc 10 is stiff
    in my mind
    flexible < medium < stiff < extra stiff
    <--less stiff - more stiff-->

    That's racket's feeling is Arc 7 is stiffer than Arc10 upon shuttle impact. Arc 10 is stiffer than Arc 7.
