    Default Looking to find a replacement for Arcsaber 11

    Hello everyone

    I'm primarily a doubles player, and I play mostly with an all round style, mostly setting up my partner and playing defense, and attacking when I have to. I currently uses a 3UG5 AS11, and I like this racket but feel it is too slow for doubles play. I'm looking for a 4U racket and I've used both head-heavy and head-light ones, mainly the VT7 and the NR700RP. I'm looking at either the VT80, VT70, or switching to Victor and getting a MX80, MX90, or BS LYD. I prefer stiff rackets, as I've gotten used to the AS11, but I've heard quite a few horror stories about both the stiffness and head-heaviness of the VT80 and MX80. What would you suggest?

    If you think the Arsaber is too slow, how come you even think about a Voltric? Nanoray would be the obv solution...

    Or maybe you can try NS9900. Stiff enough and it is a very fast racket.

    I've used the VT7 and the ZFII before and they felt fast enough for me. The AS11 just feels sluggish for some reason

    VTZF II 4u is definitely faster than Arc 11 if you make a big swing. But to think of improving the defending and net playing beside attacking, the others 4u Voltric or Arc FB, Nanoray 700->900 should be a better choice

    vt60 has a flexible shaft, not what the OP would want.

    maybe because the as11 is not as stiff as you think, i generally switch from my nr800 to the as11 because the as11 is more forgiving as well as more flexible. i think either nanoray700s would fit your needs
