    I strung one at 13kg (28.6lbs) and it was okay. Not Voltric or N-series stable, but I wasn't afraid to break it. Would be very afraid to attempt a CM stringjob though!

    It is all depend on the skill of stringer to string high tension on this "fragile" racket.

    Interestingly, the author of the post mentioned that LCW racquet has "MA" code. I thought malaysia is also SP ?

    Just had my first session with Arc FB (F, either G5 or G6, not sure). Coming from AT900T, I fell in love with this racket instantly. Very suitable for fast paced double games. Smashing still need a bit of improvement, but the overall feeling is there. Sayonara my AT900T!

    because there's so little material the shaft is very flexible, which is what i love. it is a lot of fun to play with this racket and if i had unlimited funds, then i would love to play with this racket everyday all day, too bad i don't, so it's just hanging on my rack now

    I agree. This is probably the most flexible Yonex racquet I have ever used. Considering that it's a high end racquet, I thought it was going to be extra stiff (I think Yonex classifies it as extra stiff), but it's not. It's my favourite Yonex racquet.

    Idk why your rackets are so flexible, but mine is definitely stiff. I can see it when bending it and I can feel it when playing. It's stiffer than my vt80...

    I've done the F version at 30 - top down - with no problems.

    But I think 36 would be a push even for the 5U... assuming it is a FB.

    You're a racket seller and stringer so you have access to tons of rackets, and you don't think this shaft is flexy? On bending and hitting, it's as flexy as an Arc 9.

    Like I said, no. It's stiffer than a lot of rackets I have (including VT80, Arc11, and other stiff rated rackets). And it's not just my FB.

    I think you may have received a spaghetti disguised as a racket, or I received repainted lighter Z-Forces :P

    This is definitely a stiff racquet. I have AT700, MP100, MP77, Apacs etc and this is stiff. In fact, I think it is very close to extra stiff. Maybe because this racquet material is lighter, that after many uses, the shaft gets less stiff?
