Yonex ArcSaber Flash Boost ( ARC FB )
There seems to be a surprise in this year's new products line up. Yonex will be releasing for the first time (I believe) a 6U racket :O
The Yonex ArcSaber Flash Boost is planned to release this year with a RRP of 275$.
Has anyone got more informations on this one ?
Also would like to know how many of you have been waiting for a super light racket from Yonex!

Wait, what? 6U?4U to me is very light. This one will be.... Nothing.

even balance and 6u... guess this will depends a lot to the user's muscle then...

Maybe it's one of those new "virtual" things...

i would still buy the ar11 and the arc fb, but sometimes i wonder how many of these yonex rackets have been original designs and not just a heavier or lighter version of another racket with a different paint job and a different shaft? i know the question is redundent but since i don't know the ins and outs od yonex racket production, i do wonder from time to time.

In this case they have used some new kind of new nano application ("nanometric") to achieve a 6U racket with the highest swingspeed for Yonex so far according to the description. Also the 11 apparently has improved upon cs carbon nanotube material, a new t-joint of some sort (t-anchor?) and the magic sonic metal
Just noticed those AT900's are finally gone as well ... leaving room for ... .

You should check out the badmintoncn forum for hacked up rackets and other equipment (not that they have necessarily isolated a cupstacked nano carbon or something but I have seen chopped up rackets on there and shoes which is interesting to just see in any case (also recently saw a hacked up MP77 through google image search on MP77, that or MP55 )
edit: 77 indeed http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...803#post193803).
As for quick releases I believe ants let slip that quite a few Voltric models for example were already practically ready for launch before the first one introduced the Voltric series, the rest is indeed merely strategically launching a top end model at/around the key events (Japan Open and All England).
Back on the Flash Boost I've noticed no mention of the weight has been listed in the specs, merely F5, 6 -.^ ...

Not with that price ! Supposedly weighs 73gr. so a 6U indeed ... The Made in Taiwan is for the racket case/sleeve thingie C-SCS, and replacement grommet set AC416ACB.
