    Slipped underneath so far but finally caught on radar, the 5U ArcSaber 6, already relegated to Taiwan status -.^(?)
    Must be part of this new concept ;):

    "Smash-back: the return shot revolution - In today’s high voltage game those players who can smash with speed and accuracy have a huge advantage. The ideal way to fight back against these hard-hitters is to turn your defence into an attack; to have the receiving ability to take the initiative. The ARCSABER 11 and ARCSABER FB have been designed to create a new playing style, one where you can turn defence into attack."

    ARCSABER 6

    Description: Lightweight racquet with a high swing speed, solid feel and high repulsion required by more advance players.
    • Item Code: ARC6
    • Flex: Stiff
    • Frame: H.M. Graphite, NANOAIR SPRING, NANOCELL, Solid Titanium

    another 5U racket after the Voltric 30.

    without proper head heaviness this will be hard to play.

    Indeed. ARC-FB, the new VTiF (Voltriic i-Force) and now the ARC6.

    Err Yonex, should it not be the 006 ? based on the naming of other ARC Taiwan models?

    A bit misleading IMO.

    So we can establish that Nanocell is the Taiwan version of Nanometric as seen on the FlashBoost and the Nanoray 750

    Bumping thread to ask if anyone has played with the Arc6 and has a review?

    Trying to replace my broken ArcFB with something that doesn't make my wallet cry, Arc6 has very similar specs...

    Used this racket few sessions...though it is rated 5u doesnt really feel like it (in a good way)....clears, smashes n everything that i worry that light racket couldnt deliver is quite decent actually for this racket...having said that i found that defending and drives do not really excel too as i expected but still decent...myb just a little bit faster for manuever (myb because of the quite head heavy balance of it)...those who fancy more towards stiff racket and want to try the light weight model can consider this one...would be added bonus for those who are fast n powerful type of player...just a personal opinion...

    More solid on smashes and more feel on the net compared Arc FB, still powerful though considering it's a 5U.
