    - that was why visor only recommended the 4u version of the mx80. For the balance point to stay around the same as the 3u version. The head must be lighter. Which in turn reduce the swing weight of the racket.

    But personally I do agree with you on the stiff/heavy head issue. I think unless someone has serious swing/wrist power. A medium or stiff-medium racket, even balanced with strings at 21-24lbs is probably more ideal.

    i think even balance and stiff should go to arcsaber in yonex series. nanospeed is headlight series in yonex. talking about voltric.. i think voltric 60 should be even balance.. not VT 80

    @ssgg007: thanks for the “translation” , I understood visor statements.
    By experience with Li-Ning racquets, by example, you have quite a few models you can play in 3U or 4U, W3 or W2 in Li-Ning terminology.
    I can tell you that yes you may move a 4U faster because of its lightness, so you might feel less head weight in defences, but in effect for 2 identical racquets in 4U and 3U the 4U has got always a higher BP, and you feel it when you strike an offensive shot.

    @alanwong76: the only Arc Saber I know which is stiff and even balanced is the AS009DX; I didn’t propose it as it is very stiff.

    VT60 isn’t even balanced; it is head heavy, as AT600, but more flexible.

    for cheaper alternatives (and more even balance racket) try arcsaber 008
    it's even balance a little bit toward head light (not by much)
    it is stiff, but not the stiffest
    Tpro and MX80 stiffer than this racket, sorry I only have these two rackets I cannot really compare how it fares with others such as NS9900, but I reckon NS9900 should be more stiffer than Arc 008

    IMO pretty nice all around racket (at reasonable cost)

    it does says even balance
    we know arcsaber series are even balance rackets, however, they did not mention how even balance it is
    for example arcsaber 10 is even balance towards head heavy
    arcsaber 008 even balance toward head light

    As Avenger put it.

    It says even balance, but AS10 has a bit of head-heaviness when you play it, not much but it is there.
    Effectively I didn't think of AS008.

    I have to say I don't like this racquet, that's why I keep forgetting it...

    I do like how inexpensive Apacs rackets are. Does it get power? I am a smasher.

    @Avenger and TiKok, I have considered the Arc10 because it reminds me of the MP-99 which I like. I have never thought about the Arc 008 and Arc 009 DX. I'll take a look at those, Thanks
