    and from what i can understand looking at the whole line, Adidas believe that a softer shaft means more control. they seem to believe in the idea that dwell time is something that one look for in a control racket.
    that kinda came from yonex's definitions probably.. except that yonex achieves dwell time via the frame design than at the shaft i believe..

    yeap... interesting to note that the yonex matrix x-axis has been changed from hold-repulsion to control-power.

    Arc FB is pretty stiff. I find it as stiff as other stiff rated rackets from Yonex, if not even stiffer.

    That "dragon racquet" is gonna achieve legendary status... oh well, at least collector's status! Sure is a work of art....

    to be fair. i think they are also doing a lot of stuff. but more on the traditional side of things.

    they have given out demos to various clubs, they signed a few individual international players, and they do have an active presence in their facebook page. they don't have infinite resources as they are a standalone licensee and not necessarily have the full muscle of Adidas HQ. don't expect to see a commercial on superbowl.

    BC comes in at a unique position because we are all fans and we can do trustworthy 3rd party reviews. BC is also limited in manpower but we do what we can.

    i cannot find an equivalent Yonex racket to compare with.

    but for Victor... medium stiff, bladed frame.... there can be only one.

    i am a bit surprised that the precision 88 design seems to be popular. do you guys really prefer this design vs the Adidas style shown in the other rackets?

    i want one that has the tradition adidas logo just so it's adidas, but i want the dragon racket because of it's very unique graphics, plus the scales are "3D"!!

    now if the racket has a built in torch for the dragon breath, then i can use it as a cigar lighter!!!! that would be awesome!!

    Personally, it don't matter to me if the graphics design has a dragon or a scantily clad Megan Fox on it, or bare matte black... as long as it has good power, repulsion, feel, etc.
