If anyone wants to see the Kason 300A, PM DinkAlot. He has the Kason 300A and is testing it. Ask the Gentle Panda Nicely and he'll post some pictures.....
Also some review of the racket performance.

Pictures of Kason 300A
Here are some pictures of the Kason TSF 300A.
The racket has a really nice blue color and design. A special feature is the grommet strip on the top. This racket is strung with the Yonex NanoGY 95 at 28/30lbs. Very solid racket for power smashes, stiff shaft, nice all around racket for Doubles.

hmmm, this may be a bit off topic: just wanna ask Dink (or anyone whos tried the 300A) how the 300A plays in comparison to the ns8000? I play mostly mens singles and I'm finding the ns8000 lacking in power (maybe it's too light? ). I've also got hte woven 11 in my arsonal, but it's way too slow for doubles (great solid racket for singles tho ). I used to have a Ti-6 which i loved to bits (literally... it IS in 2 bits now) and a ti-7 which i gave up on cos it's too light.
thanks heaps =)

Does anyone know where we I can buy replacement grommet strip (the strip at the top of the frame) for the Kason TSF 300 racquets? Mine has cracked so I would like a new one when I restring and hopefully can buy the grommet in UK.

I don't mean to revive an old argument, but I thought it'd be constructive to clarify the deal behind "Arcustec" from my personal understanding.
The Defining Feature:
-Conventional rackets have a groove in the frame that runs from the 9'0'clock to the 3'o'clock position, creating somewhat of a horseshoe profile; "Arcustec" rackets, however, eliminate this groove, giving the racket a constant rounded-off triangle profile. As you can see, none of the grommets of the TSF 300 are in a groove, but all protrude from the frame.
-When the shuttle is struck by the racket, the string bed flexes and pulls on the racket frame. However, the horseshoe profile restricts the deformation of the frame, which in turn minimizes the flexing of the string bed.
-Kason claims that with "Arcustec", the profile allows for greater deformation of the frame, storing more energy and allowing for greater flexing of the string bed in the process. And I'm sure everyone here knows that the more a bow is drawn, the more powerful the shot. It's the same rather simple concept here.
So, in the end, "Arcustec" isn't a material innovation at all, but more of a structural design innovation.
And I'm no Kason sales rep (I would like to get my hands on one myself); I just have this image to thank for being able to explain all of the above :
I think this image does a better job at explaining "Arcustec" than the one provided by Supercwn...

I am about to purchase a Kason TSF 300Ti (Gold) just to try it and see how it compares to my AT900T. Hopefully it won't disappoint me haha
The China team are going to switch to Kason as sponsors soon, I would like to see how all the proffessional players adapt to their new rackets hahaha

If that's true, it could mean there's a change in Yonex marketing strategy ?
During the recent SS Masters, you can see that some of the Indonesians are being sponsored by other brands, I am not sure if it is just for that event or they have a new contract.
Kason is already sponsoring the China's junior team I believe ? So extending it to the senior team is merely extending the working relationship that they have.

I'm guessing that the greater torsional stiffness of the head is probably due to the fact that most of the energy is first absorbed by the compression of the outer/grommet insert surface of the frame, whereas other rackets spread the energy throughout the head.
But anyway, I think Kason taking over sponsorship of Team China is pretty good news; hopefully, this will increase competition among racket manufacturers- and for Yonex to lower prices- and force all manufacturers to innovate even more.
