Hi. just few questions about the rackets.
Iam using ARCsaber 10. the problem is its hard to do proper clear. My coach always say try to hit more back. but i really cannot.
if i change racket that more flexible, is it gonna make different?
i am thinking Nanoray 700fx and arc saber 3fl.

i would say try to get the technique right with the arcsaber, try not to hit too high as that will make a huge difference. I used to hit very high and my clears would land in the midcourt... If you think that you have the right technique and the right angle and enough power then yes maybe you should change your racket or experiment with string tension(what string tension are you using?).

Max is 24lbs. mine is around 22lbs i guess. im not so sure about number because i asked to the guy between medium and hard. like mid - hard

That is pretty low so you are probably getting the most power out of the string tension. Personally i think that your racket is great so i would try to improve my power and technique and speed of swing. If you are not able to do that go for either a mid-flex or flex racket and 3U rather than 4U as you get more power out of it. I would go for nanospeed 6600, voltric 60 or 7 or nanoray 100 depending on your budget for yonex at least. For other brands better ask other people or just look online

I'd try standing behind a shuttle. Your coach might have fed you shuttles to hit during training, so you'd want to experiment with the length / height ratio of hitting the shuttle at various positions in front of you.
You have a fixed arm strength, so change around the variable of hitting height and angle and you'll get the maximum distance you can hit sans the effects of equipment.
The ArcSaber 10 is one of the best rackets that I've used, but if you're still not hitting far I'd suggest a head heavy variation for a quick fix.

I would not buy another racket. I should adjust your swingspeed to the stiff shaft and try try try. No need to buy a new racket. It's better to train and learn right technique. It will be a better and cheaper improvement.

Just out of curiosity since when do you play badminton? How long do you have access to proper training?

Dude, the ArcSaber 10 is a very friendly racket imo, you need to improve your techniques before you complain about one of the best rackets in the world. It is stiff flex but stiff flex actually gives you more power.

All you need to do is improve your racket speed and technique.

Unfortunately, YONEX has decided to discontinue the ARC SABER 10

i wouldnt buy a new racket, unless you can do a trade in and what not, if not its way too expensive and the racket might not be the problem. plus, you are using one of the top of the line rackets.
some things you may want to look at while you are hitting.
-pronation of the arm/wrist
-shift in weight/ push off your racket leg
-angle of the racket
-height of contact
-and to try to get behind the shuttle so its easier for you to push the shuttle farther
