Thread: Yonex Arcsaber 7 Reviews

I just came back from my Sunday morning badminton club. Here is my review of the Arc7. The US coded Arc7 is 3UG4, even balanced. The racquet is strung with Bg80 at 23 lb. From the design, it is a little twin of NS8k. An interesting observation, if you hold the frame from both side and press on the sweet spot, you can see the frame bend.
It look fine, nothing too flashy.
Arc7 has great control. I would say it has better control than NS9k-x. I believe it is due to the new t-joint. Directional control is very good. Great net shot and back court drop. In fact, back court drop was so good that it keep hitting the tape and tumble over the net. A very "LUCKY" racquet.
Smash and clear suffered. I have problem get powerful smashes in. (Yeah, I am weak) Need extra push to clear it from baseline to baseline. Unlike NS8k clear and smash easy. I won my smash point by location and direction. Not speed or power.
A great racquet for defensive player. Best word to describe it
"SMOOOOTH". Use BG85 at 20X22 lb for more power. 22X24 if you have the power.

I tried my 3UG5 JP today. I definately like the racket. It's feel quite light and control is very good. Power wise is a bit weak so, it would need more power and speed to get it going. Stringed up 26.5/25.5 with Nanogy98.

I just saw one at Lees today. Very nice looking racquet, looks nice and sleek. Can't comment on it's performance because I didn't try it out, but the balance felt nice.

in comparison with the At900T, how much more power would be lost? (i think Matt should know the answer to this :P)

Pretty hard to quantify it, but it is somewhat weaker.

I got an ARC 7 late last week (and the full range of CP rackets from SOTX), and have been using it a bit this weekend.. I have a slight knee injury so it makes perfect sense to do some racket reviewing, instead of just hard-core training
Yonex Arcsabre 7, 3UG4, JP , BG80 24x26lbs.
My impressions is a little bit different, I think, than Matts.. I don't find the control particulary good.. and the racket feels kind of sluggish for a 3U. I was not impressed at all with the feeling at net.
However, I would like to bring out Eepaks old expression "effortless power" :-)
under-arm strokes, and pick-ups, drives are EXTREMELY easy.. Actually I can agree sort of with the marketing hype that it kind of "catapults" the shuttle away with minimal effort..
This was very evident when I made shuttle speed test, that the shuttle went significantly further on the speed test than with my AT900P :-D, with the same under-arm stroke....
I found clearing and under-arm strokes from back court was very effortless to hit.
Full power smashes where better than I expected after reading Ants review..My inital impression was that it had about the same power as my old NS8K, and far more forgiving.
My expereince with the arc 7 was very pleasant, and this brings my hope up for the "next" arc models :-)
Summing things up:
Max Power: 8.5/10
Great racket for the player who is a little weaker (think women, junior players) I think!
I would not expect this to be one of Dinks favourites :-)
But its a damn good racket in my view!!
