    This is yet to be seen.
    Personally, i would prefer Evil Empire to study market acceptance on Arc FB, they will then be able to construct their new racket in accordance with market taste. With this leaked information, it seems that Evil Empire has already prepared it in a similar time with Arc FB.

    how is the islash a failure,

    its a great racquet, in fact its my favorite racquet, planning to buy 2 more of them,

    strung with NBG99 @ 28lbs is excellent on net play and control

    i have 2 other people looking for new racquets and they both tried my islash, they loved it, much easy to control and handle and also generate potential power

    they both agreed to buy 2 each, so i don't understand how you think the islash is a failure??

    you actually need time to get use to a racquet, the zslash took a coach i know 8 months to get familiar with,

    islash took me 3 months, but 1 of the mate pick it up and adjusted immediately

    so again, it depends on the person's playing style, its never the racquets fault, 9/10 is usually the player hasn't found the correct racquet for his playing style

    i've been through and bought many racquets (8-10) and islash was the perfect racquet for me,

    the iforce maybe a perfect racquet for some players, many players dislike the zforce being too head heavy, if the iforce was abit head lighter and is a med flex racquet the wippy feel of the racquet could make up for the potential power that you could get in the zforce, and it could then be a doubles choice racquet also

    I think it looks ok and may be good if im tired after playing with my z force for a long time. Out of interest does anyone know what the z and i stand for in yonex rackets? Japanese?

    I'm not surprised rackets are getting lighter. Materials are at the point now where they CAN be lighter, so why not?

    Every 3U Yonex I've had has been over 100g strung and gripped, and it was only through sheer luck of getting a 3U Victor that was at the bottom of the 3U range that eventually I found out that my 'golden' spec racket is a actually a mildly head-heavy 4U - somewhere around 88g with a BP of 305mm.

    And I'm a big guy.

    Every time I play I see players completely hamstrung by playing with AT700s or VT80's or VZF's that are pushing 100g and they just can't play with them. They THINK they can, but I know they'd be better with something lighter and faster.

    I'm not sure if 5U is a good idea, but the market will be the judge of that.

    It's just a matter of trying to convince people they don't need a sledgehammer to swat a birdie.

    Well if a lighter racket can transfer the power from the user to the shuttle as well as a heavier one the lighter will be easier to use. Rackets are probably going to get lighter, imagine 50 years from now there might be 40gr rackets with 3mm super areo dynamic shafts.

    I think Yonex are targeting aggressive doubles players and maybe even ladies. The Z-Force is known for providing great power, but not defensive play as much. Keeping the same design should keep the power the ZF has, but is lighter, which means more maneuverability and higher swing speed. Coupled with the slightly more flexible frame to account for the lighter frame, and this should make the perfect doubles and ladies racket.

    I say should. The only way to know this for certain is for us to test it, and for that we will just have to wait.
