    Default Yonex ArcSaber 6 (ARC6)

    Slipped underneath so far but finally caught on radar, the 5U ArcSaber 6, already relegated to Taiwan status -.^(?)
    Must be part of this new concept :

    "Smash-back: the return shot revolution - In today’s high voltage game those players who can smash with speed and accuracy have a huge advantage. The ideal way to fight back against these hard-hitters is to turn your defence into an attack; to have the receiving ability to take the initiative. The ARCSABER 11 and ARCSABER FB have been designed to create a new playing style, one where you can turn defence into attack."

    ARCSABER 6

    Description: Lightweight racquet with a high swing speed, solid feel and high repulsion required by more advance players.
    • Item Code: ARC6
    • Flex: Stiff
    • Frame: H.M. Graphite, NANOAIR SPRING, NANOCELL, Solid Titanium
    • Shaft: H.M. Graphite, NANOCELL, Super HMG
    • Weight / Grip Size: 5U (75-79.9g) G4, 5
    • Colour: White/Orange

    another 5U racket after the Voltric 30.

    without proper head heaviness this will be hard to play.

    Indeed. ARC-FB, the new VTiF (Voltriic i-Force) and now the ARC6.

    Err Yonex, should it not be the 006 ? based on the naming of other ARC Taiwan models?

    A bit misleading IMO.

    So we can establish that Nanocell is the Taiwan version of Nanometric as seen on the FlashBoost and the Nanoray 750

    Bumping thread to ask if anyone has played with the Arc6 and has a review?

    Trying to replace my broken ArcFB with something that doesn't make my wallet cry, Arc6 has very similar specs...

    FWIW This racquet is only 55 from Khelmart

    http://www.khelmart.com/Badminton/it...rcSaber-6.aspx

    Where as it is 91 in UK (cheapest I could find)

    http://www.directsportseshop.co.uk/P...mSearchPage=No

    Fortunately I have an Indian friend who can send to me, so i ordered a few

    Concerned I may have timing issues if the racquet really is head heavy and so light. Will hae to wait and see
