i bought one purely to collect since it seems like a pretty unique racket. while warming up i hit the shuttle with the frame, checked, already a paint chip, so i decided to retire it after 10min of playing time. quickest retirement of any racket i've owned. now it just sits on my wall
i am sorry to those who's broken their FB one way or another. it is quite fragile and it's just too stressful for me to play with it and hoping that it won't break.
Arc saber FB. This is probably the most fragile racket ever made by Yonex. I've already broke my FB twice is less then 5 months both the time it was purely a miss hit. Luckily I got my 1st broken fb replaced by yonex. Am hoping the same this time. Very disappointed with yonexs quality of this racket. I hope they would do something about it because it's such a nice racket. Beautifully engineered. Love this racket but if I had to buy one I probably wouldn't after witnessing my previous two rackets. Too big of a risk.
you can scratch your pencil on a surface and peel it off with an adhesive tape to get very small pieces of graphene, perhaps only visible through magnification. real large sheets of graphene is almost impossible to build and not to even talk about moulding it into a racquet. what you are getting, is probably tiny flakes, or simply graphite, mixed into loads of resin
unless one day they find ways to cheaply stitch the sheets together, having tiny flakes is still nonsense, you dont get strength as the glue to graphene joint is the weakest. a big load of "marketing" bull sometimes
