    BTW, I bought my 700FX from you guys and really like it (4U version).
    Salutations!

    NanoRays are definitely good for fast and aggressive players, they're just not for me. I'm just the kind of player that you want to have in the back of the court for aggressive smashing, which is why I'm surprised that I like the Photon and the FB so much.

    Yonex entering that 6U market just means that the rest of the world will get to experience it and we'll see if we're just weirdos for liking light rackets or if there is a real demand worldwide :P

    Bonjour vous!

    That's the kind of player I was before hurting my shoulder (too much enthusiasm after a 3-4 week pause and no warm-up)...

    The Photon has so much success here, I'm sure the FB will find some adepts (even though the BK costs less, it isn'T available around the globe).

    After one session with ArcSaber FB, my thought on this piece is pretty much same with yan.v & vajrasattva. Quick, responsive and packs a punch though is light. Only thing is the learning curve for it's light weight swing speed. In my case, smashes doesn't felt weak and comparable to my time with BS LYD and N80. Will have more session with it and see how it goes.

    So........ there is obviously some real new technology or process or combination of both that has gone into the making of this racquet. From what the reviews indicate so far, it wold be fair to say that this racquet clearly punches above it's class, and consistently at that!

    I am wondering, how stiff the racket feel,
    does the feather light racket feel easier to excute smashes even tho it is stiff rated compare to 3U stiffness racket?

    Felt pretty stiff to me, slighty more than N80 or BS LYD.

    Today was my second session with the Arcsaber FB (F, G6 with an over-grip over the stock grip). I certainly agree with the comments so far on its maneuverability. It feels like the Arcsaber 9FL just more maneuverable due to its light weight and crisper due mainly to its stiffness. It also plays well at the net as well as from mid-court. Clears from the back court can also easily reach the end of the opponents' court. So I will agree with Yonex's claim of turning defense into offense. I've not fully tested its smashing capability as I am mostly opportunistic in that department as placement and moving my opponents around game play is my bread and butter. Overall, I like this racket a lot.

    Similar play style second session already, still trying to fix up my timing issue and some slice shots.
    The ArcFB really excel in drives, defend and quick control.
    Smashing i wouldnt say is superior or on par with other head heavy rackets out there.
    But it delivers for me when going for some quick short smashes.
    Back court smashes is rewarding enough when hit right on the sweet spot.
    Honestly i find ArcFB plays more lively compared to BS LYD and FUN too

    Ah too bad. If the smashing was better, might contemplate to get one.

    yup i like it a lot too the more i play with it.. interestingly it is the only yonex racquet that i feel i'm in total control of, due to the ease of handling, you get added confidence in all strokes, and the racquet does exactly what you want to do with it. if i had a z-force i would be worried whether i could recover in time to receive another quick return after dealing a heavy blow etc, but the FB is just the opposite of this

    This unstrung BP is quite surprising for me. Is it head heavy? (can you make a comparison with other Yonex and non Yonex rackets?)

    Someone have told me that the frame sounds hollow when you misshit,
    does it really sounds like that,
    every miss hit sounds like going to snap the racket at the frame...
