    Medium+ balance, (stiff)-xtrastiff ... left is for balance, right is for stiffness. Colour is red, like the red in Z-Slash like someone mentioned and yellow is also Z-Slash yellow from the looks of it .

    No surprise there, the 10 was slightly more headlight compared to the ZS too. Not that we'd notice it much during play but the ZS whilst even balanced, is probably right at the top end of the scale.

    The greatest let down in the top of the range yonex racquets in my view was the Arc10. It's an awful racquet considering the price. Tiny sweetspot, unforgiving, low torsion resistance, vibration, poor feel. I can't help but think that the NS9900 is what the Arc10 should have been (perhaps with a tiny bit more head weight).

    I seriously hope that the Arc 11 addresses the problems with the Arc 10.

    Strange. I feel the Arc10 is the best one I have used amongst the racquets. But then again, mine is the PG version...

    I also have the PG version as well as the original red one. I have two as I got the red one very cheap (hoping it would be different to the PG). Obviously what I said above is my opinion and I'm sure others may disagree. But I've been collecting and using yonex racquets for almost 25yrs and have used most of the top end racquets in that time. The Arc 10 is perhaps the worst I've used amongst the top end racquets - bar a few such as the Aerotus 110.

    Yes it has been used by a lot of pros (although we cannot be sure it is the same as the consumer ones) and it has been very popular with non-professionals - so this is just my view on it.

    I just feel that the lower ranked ArcSabers perform far better than the 10. The 8DX and 7 both are better racquets than the 10 in my book, and when you consider the price too they beat the 10 hands down.

    The 8DX frame is slightly wider and not as long as the 10 if I remember correctly. The 8DX is stiff, but not massively stiff.

    and if it's the arcsaber series that's been discontinued then i want to know why they would have an arc11 if the rumor is true?

    wondering if it will be limited, and if it is then it's gonna be bank!
    You were indeed correct about ARC10, I actually came across this rumour not too long ago as well. Looks like 8DX & 5DX are gone as well, which explains the massive discounts in Japan (well at least at one store). No DX frame for the 11 ...

    Arc 11 is designed for balance racket, it is no surprise for the head light condition, what I surprise is the flex is more than ZSlash, so..it is consider super flex already, not sure how is the on hand feelings.

    You are reading the specs completely wrong It is the opposite of all you wrote?
