    ZF is actually a good racket imop - the others, not so much Although the ArcZS is popular amongst the non-brainwashed members of my club. No idea why, though, as I don't see what makes it more attractive than any other high-priced racket (Arc7 or Arc10 would be much higher on my list).

    Because I've tried it and it is really a new wonder for me :P

    I haven't liked a racket so much since the MP99 and the BK Photon! Heh.

    I can understand why some people don't like the racket though, but it is definitely not a ZS, NR700-800 or any of those not so liked overhyped rackets.

    Agree ~ comparatively i seen more Arc11 in sales thread than ArcFB in past months
    Is either not many tried the FB or is a keeper for most
    I'm sure many had stated in their reviews or first impression that it is not a racket for EVERYONE
    But it does has it's own merits

    Edit : Juz to add that Ratchanok used the ArcFB for a win over Sonia Cheah w/ VT-80 in Axiata Cup 2013 WS Final nice game

    i may have missed a post about this, but how does the FB compare to the Z slash? Because I'm getting rid of my Arc 10 PG but I'm not sure whether to replace it with Z slash or FB ><'

    It's impressive that so many professional players are using or trying the Arc FB in the recent tournaments.
    It must be their techniques and skills which makes Arc FB's lack of power not worth to mention.

    Or it's that lack of power that makes them switch back...

    Just tried the new Arc FB strung with BG66 @23lbs owned by a friend last night. It felt really light and the swing speed was faster than a 3U NS9900 which came to my surprise, since this racket has a taller BP which I thought it would compensate the lighter total weight. I played only one double game with this racket so I might be sending a wrong impression for a comprehensive review but the main highlight of this racket is the user-friendliness. It swings through the air like effortlessly in a decent speed. It was very enjoyable to play the game at the front and mid court bringing more of tight net shots and fast flat drives exchange, even a late cross court net shots were easily controlled. OTOH, playing at the rear court was very demanding. Though I smashed at the maximum power, it just did not kill the opponent and most of my smashes were easily returned. At certain times, I felt the check smashes I executed with this racket were somehow more effective where the steeper angle made my opponents more difficult to counter with flat returns.
    IMHO, the Arc FB is more suitable for ladies players especially those who play mixed doubles and keep their eyes at the front court most of the times. Probably some of the beginners or lower-intermediate level players at younger ages would get the benefit of this feather-lite racket as they will not get easily tired so the focus is more on the proper stroke.

    Just an addition for some who have been wondering, Arc ZS is a completely different animal compared to the Arc FB. As a big fan of Arc ZS, I am trying not to send a biassed message but I believe the Arc ZS was developed for more advanced all-rounder players and Yonex had done that successfully. Personally, I think that Arc ZS is the racket which gives you a "love it or hate it" kind of impression and I use it in almost every sessions I play and I simply can't get away from it
    And for the "real" taste of Arc ZS, please try the 2U instead of 3U.

    Same as above. I know 6U is fragile but I have not heard in terms of how the 5U is in terms of reports on breakage.

    Have you tried the 6U version yet? I'm curious how the 5U compare to the 6U version.
