    Default Another racket similar to arcsaber fb

    I recently got the arcsaber fb and only used it for an hour and it broke. When I used it, it felt really good.

    I was wondering if there's an alternative racket to fb which is more durable but having a similar weight?

    of course the arc fb breaks easily.. the material is the lighest and also hollow 73grams.. try li ning windstorm series for more durability and also light 78gram or try the yonex voltric i force 79gram with head heavy balance hope this helps

    Try Voltric i-Force, it is 5U n medium flex but a bit head heavy. Almost as light w/ more power for smashes n clears.

    The medium flex will also aid in giving more 'whipping' force. I did not try it on court yet but it felt good doing dry swings in the store.

    Maybe you could send it back for warranty or something. It broke way too fast, unless you clashed it really hard. I'm not sure how Yonex's warranty works but it's worth a shot.

    I would go for a Karakal racket or a light Forza. Really durable, good performance and for the price of a FB you can get nearly 3.

    all i know is that the i-force is nowhere near the lightness of the flashboost. and it's a difference racket balance. tho the i-force is still a light racket, the swing feel will be different.

    Can u give me some insights on how do they differ because i am interested to buy i-force. Right now i am using an even balanced light 3U racket that is not sold outside Indonesia. Tried FB but seems kind of hard to get decent smash, maybe inadequate/mistiming of wrist action on smashing.

    ^ you'll have to ask @vajrasattva ... since he has both FB and i-Force.

    Apacs and Flex Power probably have more racket variety than everyone else combined. In fact too much, it can cause utter confusion. I'm sure there is something in the lines there comparable to the FB.
