B/c he can get as much FB as he wants or that his version of FB is somehow special, as perceived by many here at BC.

Arcsaber FB i think is not bad but a bit pricely , in SGD 260 ? , I not sure have anyone tried Li Ning , G-Force 300 super light weight racket , 75 Gram , Half the price of the Arc FB , Sgd 130 ? If you are buying for the weight , its just a word of advice =D , if you really like Yonex , try getting the Arcsaber 9 FL though the color is abit girlish , its more worth it .

At first, I added the weight using electrical tape. This is to try and see if adding weight helps. The tape method is not good as the tape tends to peel off.
I later added 2 grams of weight using lead tape. Those normally use for tennis racquets. It works great.

If Mogensen FB is your concern , there are some rumors that what he really uses is a VTZF , not an FB
Painted , you might want to refer to the thread "VTZF that looks like an FB?" somewhere here in the forums.
Id recommend Karakal BN60 for a more durable , lighter , cheaper FB.

for me arc fb is nicely marketed racket , but i have personally tested the racket and it is very fragile very easy to break and very highly priced in compare to other light weight rackets like
victor lightfighter 7300 / lightfighter 7400 / thruster tk 300.
i think now yonex is only making money because of its goodwill but not producing quality like before .
i am more impressed with quality of victor and li ning rackets .

I wrote a short review about my first impression on 5 u FB. I wasn't that confident about this racket. After using this for relative longer time, I think i can give out a more precise review now.
i will only adress some points that worth notice about fb.
1. frame stability , in term of such a light weighted racket, fb frame staiability is second to none.
2. playability, fb improved users gameplay .
i gave it to my gf, and her shots are much faster than using arc9 3u. i also used fb and find my shots at front mid court are of pretty high quality, very impressive and enjoyable experience.
3. tension sensitive, playability changes significantly with string type and tension you use. though with low tension , fb plays well at front mid court, fb plays much better with high tension at mid rare court. at 27lbs bg80p, i felt fbs sweetspot unpowerful for smash. but with 29lbs bg66um, its performance improved dramatically.
4.although,fb is so light weighted and supposed to be good at passive stances, i find it hard to play when you are passive at rare court . backhand techniques are harder to execute compared with heavier arcs ie. arc8 arc9 3u.
5. with bg66um 29 lbs rare court smash with fb can be as lethal as heavier arc series.
6. playabilty wise, i highly recommand fb user use high tension on fb. dont worry about small sweetspot issue, most of my friends using 22lbs feels great about my 29 lbs fb, no complaints about too stiff or too small sweetspot.

Light doesn't mean fragile or easy to break.
Light doesn't mean they reduced the strength of the frame or the quantity of materials.
Light could mean that they upgraded the technology or replaced heavier components and materials with lighter ones, etc.
IMHO, the FB is a very good racquet, especially when facing up to swift, heavy smashers.
(Incidentally, I tried it at 24lbs, then 27lbs, then 29lbs and finally at 31lbs. And now, at 31lbs, I find it to be a top-notch racquet.)
But, unless you restrict yourself to playing only with the FB, it does have its drawbacks.
Thankfully, foo.tw has addressed almost all of it here (and the point about the backhand is quite true when beginning to play with the FB):
