    ants, that's probably the least subtle "spoiler" I've ever heard - thank you:D.

    Ahaha, I'm guessing this racket will be Gold in colour. Like the new ns8000 maybe?

    Flex is stiff not Extra Stiff.... can be the next collectible racket... would be as popular as the AT700s and ti10s. My tip is Save Money now! hehehe :)

    ah mr ants and his teasers every time new racquet comes out. I can't speak for at 700 but ti 10 is a very good racquet. However their collectability is a bit over rated because of their users, namely LD and Fu and their records :p

    you know everyone says Ti-10 is popular but Out of my 4 years of playing i am the only one that owns one on my team. I also never see it at gyms/club that i play at.

    is it really that popular outside the u.s? or is it just popular outside the bay area lol

    Ants when you say "Save Money Now!" Will it be more expensive than the other top racquets when they came out?

    Hi Canti, Malaysia is quite popular with Ti10 regardless is it 2nd Gen or 3rd Gen. But if you have 2nd gen to sell, its for sure that there are ppl want to get it from you ;) So don't worry, you got a good racket which value for money.

    I'm hoping it's more like a Wilson Brave, but with the gold on black - very nearly too blingy, but just within good taste:).

    For some people $50 is expensive... some $200 is expensive..
    What i mean was... if you dont have a budget so spend on racket.. save some money so you can buy later. Not necessary save money means the racket is expensive.

    knowing yonex though, it will be expensive.
    not that a review isn't appreciated.

    Is true that Yonex high end racquets is expensive but it is not as overpriced as LN :D

    You always feel something different from Yonex racquets.

    I would phrase it... LN is just about as overpriced as yonex :) .. as long as N90 is better than ARC-10 I bet it will find its customers... regardless of price :p

    Suddenly Yonex becomes a budget alternative :p ... hmm.. maybe not ;)

    The ArcSaber 9 and the Nanospeed 9900 - the latest 'high-priced' racquets from Yonex - turned out to be marketing duds. As a matter of fact, their clones appear to have done better in the market!

    Now, without China's and Korea's champions to brandish their racquets, Yonex will need a lot of acronyms (like UGHH) and praise-singers to sell a reworked ArcSaber :eek:

    A better option would be to drop prices to what they really should be.
    Perhaps they should keep it to $50 to $100 :)

    Absolutely agreed. Yonex rackets are wayyy to overpriced... they should really re-consider re-pricing the high end rackets...its ridiculous
