    Well... How I classify head weight is base on below:

    RKEP Pro6000/Pro9000 (BP 297mm/299mm) --> Head heavy
    Ryoga Tenbu (BP 296mm) --> Even Balance
    Arc-FB (BP >300mm) --> Head light

    It is obvious here I just rate them according to how I feel.
    Arc-FB racket head itself doesn't bring much momentum and easier to flick/change direction after smash. I think it is not related to the overall racket weight but where the weight is placed. (at the head portion or shaft or handle)

    Anyhow, the shaft isn't that repulsive compare to Tenbu does turn me down a bit.
    Restring will cost me another $40 >.<"
    its hard to compare to the ryoga series of gosen, because all their ryoga racquets have very high repulsion.. even the issen feels like a stiff version of the armortec 900T...

    I mean head light based on my feeling.
    RKEP Pro6000/9000 (297/298mm BP)--> head heavy
    Ryoga Tenbu (295mm BP) --> Even Balance
    Arc-FB (>300mm BP) --> Head Light

    It is not about overall weight, it is how much swing weight that it carries that come out above comparison.

    Issen actually is +2 stiffness compare to Tenbu +3 stiffness.
    But Arc-FB feels like +4/+5 stiffness to me...
    However, will lowering down the tension and try tomorrow.

    You mean -2lbs?

    Which grip size is ideal to get? G4, G5, or G6 with this racket?

    It depends on which one is suitable for your palm.

    After several more training sessions I really have to say: I f*cking love this racket! It's just so awesome for my playing style!
    I felt like LCW in this video when defending smashes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArazfUmdEhk

    After reading all the reviews I had to order one! Arrived today, UK code G4 NGB 98 at 28lbs.

    Can't wait to try it. Feels nice and stiff and fairly sturdy too, given its low weight. Love the colour and look of the racket too.

    Mine feels head heavy balance (happy with that) and now with an RKEP wet grip over the original the total weight is 79G ( is that about right?)

    Should be good to compare this to my Victor Lightfighter 7400, which with an overgrip weighs 78g.

    Nice colour coordination with the grip there

    Yesterday and at the YGO I hold it in my hands. Very light and a bit head heavy. For me not a must have. I don't prefer such light rackets and don't find such less weight necessary for my game. Some player would be glad to get such a light racket from Yonex.

    Gotcha, I was not sure which you were going by when I mentioned it.

    Since I haven't kept up with the BPs, hows the BP for the Arcsaber FB in comparison with Arcsaber 7?

    Its plausible. I have not kept up on BP numbers.
