    Cool Replacement of Broken Arc-FB

    Hi,
    I need a recommendation of racket here since my fav Arc-FB broken,
    I don't plan to go back to Arc-FB cause it is so heart broken when it easily break even tho I like it the most...

    Current racket I hold:
    Gosen Ryoga Tenbu 3U
    RKEP Pro9000 4U
    RKEP Pro6000 4U

    Play style:
    Most of the time front court
    Net shot, net kill and drive mostly
    Occasionally back court smash and drop shot


    Weak point of my current holding racket:
    RKEP Pro9000/6000 are a little bit too flexy for me...
    Gosen Ryoga Tenbu weigh is at the high side of 3U (88g) and tiring after 1 hour games...


    Any recommendation?
    Thanks in advance.

    Since you've tried the rkep rackets before, I'd definitely recommend the xp60 and xp70. First is very stiff, second is stiff (similar to pro9k). Probably around 84-85g for you. They're my go to rackets atm.

    You can try Karakal BN60 or Karakal SL70
    Both are super light like the Arc-FB but less expensive

    you could try the apacs featherweight series. It is their own developed line not a clone series. The newest one the featherweight 300 weighs 75gr , 300mm bp and is medium stiff as well as rated max tension 35lbs. I found the featherweight 200 to be durable and survived a several hard clashes strung at 26lbs.
    Apacs also do many 5u rackets.

    Light and flex rackets would be good since you are a front player. Need the speed with quick wrist work. Chop chop the opponets.

    I second the Karakal BN60. You may also want to consider the Adizero Pro?

    One thing special about the ARC FB is the combanation of the "super light weight + stiffness" (you get the speed and accuracy at the front, and you won't sacrifice a lot of power from the baseline, ie, clearing from baseline to baseline).

    There are many super light weight racket out there (ie, I still have a Kason Carvel), but many of them are super light + flexible, meaning you'll get the speed, but sacrifice a lot of power from the baseline. You cannot substitue the combanation, it'll become a different racket...

    I would second on the Nanoray 750 that some users has suggested (hopefully you can find a low 4U one). But the price is just as pricey as the Arc FB...

    I was wondering how your FB broke? I am using FB's right now and they are my favourite in terms of overall play. I have clashed once but only with moderate force and luckily nothing broke. My tension is relatively high at 27x25 lbs.

    You have the same combination for half the price in the ArcSaber 6. Stiff, head heavy and 5U. I do not get why no one talks about it but everyone wants to pay a premium to try the FB.
