There are a few versions of the Ti10 each with slightly different feel and balance - so it depends which one you're refering to.
I only have the original 1st generation Ti-10s which are head heavy, the other generations, I've been told are even balanced. I also have two Arc10s. In my experience there is no comparison between the two racquets. One is an absolute legend, a classic and the other is an overhyped top end racquet.
The Ti-10 is a hugely powerful, solid yet very controllable racquet. It has a very large sweetspot and has excellent anti-torque properties that makes it very forgiving and stable on off-centre shots. The frame shape also makes it very maneouvreable and whilst it is not stiff by todays standards, it is still used by many advanced players.
The Arc10 is a bizarre creature in my books. It has no real qualities that makes it stand out. Firstly it lacks power, it has a tiny sweetspot thats slightly lower than the centre position making it a very unforgiving racquet on off centre shots. Control wise it is ok, but nothing spectacular, anything above the centre position on the string bed causes a lot of vibration and so control suffers massively on slightly mistimed shots. It moves very well through the air like the other arc sabers. However a lot of professionals and intm/advanced players use it so don't take my view as gospel. I personally think it is the worst performing top end racquet that Yonex has made since the aerotus 110.

i have the third gen ti10 and it seemed to be a solid racket. it's a bit heavy for me even tho it's only 3u i think, i need to double check on that. but the frame is normal isometric but leaning toward oval so it's bit more compact that the arc10. i find the arc10 just really slow and clumsy in my opinion. maybe because the head frame is a bit rounder than the ti10 and rounder than most rackets for that matter.
they both seemed to be even balance racket for me, the ti10 seems to be a bit stiffer than the arc10 but not by much. for some reason i can generate a lot more power with the ti10 than the arc10.
