    Maklike, I'm not sure about the structural quality but I think the JP version has a better level of QC as last time I compared my Arc 10 SP with the JP version Arc 10 owned by a friend, I found that my racket has one misaligned graphic on the shaft. Similar thing happened on few other rackets I have compared side by side.
    They are just minor cosmetic/paint job issues which I can check through my naked eyes, other than that I did not find any differences.

    But kudos to yonex they gave me my pick of rackets from the entire range, they will also string the racket to my choice of string and lbs. so I choose the FB 5U version hopefully it is more strongly built.
    I'm not sure how your racket was damaged, but I didn't experience any issues with mishits or anything like that with both the 5U and 6U.

    Question

    I saw Carsten Mogensen playing with AS FB in the match yesterday at Sudirman Cup.
    So he switched from VT ZF to AS FB?!
    Have we any comparison between these rackets?
    Thought the handling between VT ZF and AS FB is MUCH different...

    Thanks

    Not sure why he did it. I frequently do it with Li Ning N90 and Karakal BN60. After 2 tiring games with 1-1, if I shift from LN to Karakal in the 3rd, my stamina goes up. So does my footwork. Though I cannot hit smashes as with LN, other movements become swift. The opponent is taken by surprise. This has to be experienced to be believed

    I'm surprised no one else including Matt (who got the 5U Arc FB long before me) have posted any impressions of the 5U Arc FB. I have been busy with my Adidas Duoforce racket. I will post some impressions of the 5U Arc FB later this weekend.

    Just FYI, in one match, where things didn't go the Danes' way, CM snapped his VT ZF with his bare hands (by bending it past the point of no return )....soooo, he might actually be able to destroy that VT frame in a rally as well

    anyone clarifying with yonex whether there's any mis-representation of their racquets in games by the so-called spray-painting of other racquets?

    I'm sure they'll answer questions like that. Truthfully.

    I did post something brief lol!! But until I can play normally again, I wont be able to discribe in dephth since I cannot even use my full ability to utilize what the racket can do, not to mention my own racket I like to use.

    I, and I'm sure a number of people in this forum, have been waiting for someone doing a comparison between Arc FB F(6U) and 5U. Please kindly those who have been "lucky" to have and use them provide a review. I do appreciate your kindness.

    As for the assumption that CM is using a sprayed ZF (not actually a FB), is there anyone who can provide us with a snapshot or any image to prove it? Now we are living in a digital era. Thus, I believe that only a I-heard-someone-said-bla-bla-bla evidence is not enough to support an assumption.

    I haven't taken a picture but in close-ups during the SC (where we finally have HD quality videos again) the frame seemed a little thick for the FB. No conclusive proof, though, and the only really conclusive proof (a photo showing the Voltric bumps) would be a real close-up photo. So basically we'd have to get a stringer to risk his job and take one
