    Updates on my broken FB: I called up the shop that I brought back to exchange my broken FB, and yes, I am getting a replacement FB! However, due to overwhelming response for the said racket, I have to wait up to two weeks for it....bummer....and yup, I will have to pay for the bg66um and grip. *shrugs* oh well, I reckon it beats not getting a replacement racket right?

    In any case, once I get my replacement racket, I'm gonna have 2 FBs..huzzah!

    A quick search looks like also Australia has G4 as well.

    The authorized dealer in Canada is having trouble trying to get G6 in. The shop told me they kept placing orders for G6 several times (they still are) however they keep getting sent G4(s) and G5(s)!

    Well... I tried the FB and decides to sell it...
    Below is my 2cents, it might not apply to the others...


    Netshot, Drop, Drive Shot:
    Due to it shaft stiffness and light weight, it really excel in this part.
    In drive shot, FB shines and found it very easily change direction and return the drives.
    Netshot is superb as well as I perform more birdie is climb over the net.
    Drop shot was good and place it just over the net area.

    Arc-FB > Ryoga Tenbu > RKEP Pro6000 > RKEP Pro9000


    Forehand/Backhand Clear and Lift:
    FB is head light racket, I found it requires more powers to clear from back court to back court compare to my head heavy racket. A misshit or insufficient power, it will turn into nightmare mid court shot.
    I found it is stiffer than my Tenbu (stiff rated too) and requires more wrist power to life the shuttle.

    RKEP Pro9000> RKEP Pro6000 = Ryoga Tenbu > Arc-FB


    Net kill and Smash:
    Well, it does a little suprise me here. I can generates a good smashes with FB.
    However, the sounds aren't like the head heavy racket. However, you need to use enough wrist power as well else it will easily returned.
    Net kill was more or less same with other racket, but you able to reach the shuttle earlier and creating shaper angle.

    RKEP Pro9000 > RKEP Pro6000 > Ryoga Tenbu = Arc-FB


    Overall, it is a good racket but it is just not my cup of tea.
    The part the bugging much is the shaft are too stiff to my liking.
    After two days of game, my wrist starts to feel pain again.
    Even tho it is rate stiff, I feel it is stiffer than my Tenbu.
    Maybe this is cause my the head light vs even balance racket.

    1 thing I note that, the shaft doesn't feel as repulsive that I wish,
    It is not that repulsive compare to my Tenbu.
    I found it is less lively, or in other words, it feel like "wood" on Arc-FB.


    On the side note, the sounds when you hitting the frame is kinda "hollow"
    I have to always check on it if I have cracked it.
    It is just distracting me from the game.


    Add-on:
    Mine are F6-G5 SP coded. It weigh 76g (BG66UM 26lbs + original grip). 75g now when i remove the original grip and put an overgrip on it. BP was >300mm when I check, I will get a ruler to measure tonight for accurate one.

    @cschun86 wow! BG66um at 26 lbs on this racquet will certainly make your wrist work harder! Do you think a lower tension (2 lbs) would help?

    Ok, I've just realized the full potential now of this racquet after adjusting to it in three sessions. This racquet is incredible. My smashes are actually more powerful now with the FB. Amazing!!. I tried to break my cracked racquet by smashing as hard as I can only to discover the real potential. Lightning fast defense and drives coupled with fast powerful accurate smashes makes this a deadly weapon.

    @cschun86 Did you mean even balance? I don't think you mean headlight because Arcsabers is designed to be even balance.

    Do agree on lowering the tension. 26lbs is my usual on other rackets but for ArcFB i think it needs 1 or 2 lbs lower due to it's light weight and stiff shaft to ease clears. Not sure if it'll affect other shots or smashes but will give it a try on next restring. Superb racket still and juz needed more time to adapt

    Yea, will considering to lower to 23lbs or 24lbs as my usual tension is 25lbs.
    Anyhow, the shaft isn't that repulsive compare to Tenbu does turn me down a bit.
    Restring will cost me another $40 >.<"
