Cushion seems right, weight seems right, design is ugly, height seems right. I suppose the grip is good too because you do need good gripping to the floor to play basket.
Only thing that concerns me is support. Badminton shoes are specifically made with a badminton player's movement in mind and while I don't play basketball, it seems like it has much less lateral movement. I guess it can't be bad on that level though.

Mate, both tennis and basketball ARE indoor sports! Basketball as a competitive sport is played on wood floors 99% of the time.
All I can say is.....don't believe the hype

White grip, ONLY if there is some white on the racket itself. White strings go with anything, neon yellow also pretty much goes with anything, except looks better on complimentary colours, like blue, red and green.
Everything must not be the same brand or else you look like a <insert derogatory term here>.
Looking forward to review of the AdiZero Pro most of all!
(And also a reply to the important PM's I've now sent you twice, Kwun)

A local retailer is giving me a very good price on the ArcSaber FB. It's just slightly more than what I would pay if I were in HK. I'm thinking of pulling the trigger after a demo session later this week.
I'm thinking of pairing this with either the Yonex BG-80 or BG-85 (I've been alternating between these two strings). Which colour grip and strings would match this racket? I started using towel grips recently and it's probably something I'll continue using unless there's something better that won't cause blisters! Colour suggestions for the grip would be appreciated.

mc donalds, haha, this racket is one of the ugliest ive ever seen, no, it IS the ugliest paint job i ever witnessed, block it before i got blisters on my eyes ... afraid the colour of strings and grip wont help in this lost case

Anyhow, blisters are a sure sign something isn't right with your technique as the racket shouldn't move in your hand so much that it causes blisters. In my experience, overgrips (especially Yonex) are pretty easy on the hands, although I can't say the same the other way around (having used my Mx80 and Trinity 2 most of the time for 2 weeks, both grips have more than one spot where I'm close to touching the base grip ).
I don't know how helpful this is but I'd suggest you have someone qualified take a look at your grip and overhead swings
Having gotten my testing version of the ArcFB today, I'd say white is the best grip color. Lime green would be better, but I seriously doubt you're gonna find towel grip in that color (even overgrip should be hard to come by^^). Yellow BG80 should look nice on it.
