    Excellent defence and control, worst full power performance.
    This is what the racket is.
    Not what I would buy.

    This is a girl racket hahaha.
    GaoLin is using it. I think ZhangYaWen also use it. It is used by lady players.
    Men players all use Ti-10 or Armotec series.

    My hand power is not as strong as the Pro men players. I guess my hand power is probably similar to Pro lady onli.

    So no choice lor, i cannot use the Pro men racket....so sad.

    It even says on lots of Japanese online racquet shops that it's not for hard-hitting men. I think that the newer versions of this series will also lack power over control. >_>

    Alright, I got my Arc Saber!!! xD

    Got it like2 hours ago and rushed back to school to try it out. Had about 30min but it was a little bit out of my expectation. Originally, I used at900t but I found that I'm not at the level to use that yet so I decided to use Arc Saber. IN MY OPINION.. I do better drops and clears with the arcsaber compared to when I used the at900t. However, smash are kind..weak...but considering I was playing with jeans, a coat, without warmups and had only 30min. It might be even better than I expected later on. Anyway. more news later =]

    No jeans lol!!! Bad for you! =) The racket probably has not fully broken in yet. After spending like a few hours using it, then you eventually feel the racket beginning to respond to you and you would be able to adapt.

    That's what I noticed with my rackets when they are new.

So I'll be fully testing it tonite xD If it gives good feedback. i'm gonna use it for sunday's tournement.

    After giving it another try last night (sorry, AT900T, i still love ya), I realized that my shots were much more accurate, esp. on smash return.

    I think I start to like this racquet :)

    Chong Wei was given to try and use it on court. But he still prefer his AT900Power. Not that ArC7 is not a good racket. It can be better.

    I restrung the Arc7 with BG85 @22.5X25 lb and test it again today. I can clear much better and smash more powerful. However, it still dose not have the smash power of NS8K, NS9K, Cab30ms.
    Conclusion:
    A total defensive player's dream. Great for setting up shots in double. A good racquet to buy if you know what you are doing.
