    Sir, that's an invitation to possible thread derailment.

    Although too busy to play, I went around to the SBA Hall and tried it out.
    It's a 3U G5 version with Yonex BG-66 at 26 pounds and the original grip.

    Clears: Very effortless - both forehand and backhand
    Lifts: Just flick it - and you have a perfect lift
    Blocks: Great feeling - and go easy or they turn into drives
    Drives: Don't swing, don't swing - or you'll see them rocket out
    Drops: Precise for tapped drops, a little less for sliced drops
    Net-shots: Stiff for bounces - but very easy for tumbles
    Half-smashes: One hard tap - and you have a kill
    Smashes: Simply superb - and you need almost no backswing

    The only drawback I noted is a distinct lack of feedback when hitting with a lazy swinging action. This stiff Saber is for the explosive arm... not for the classic arm.

    I'm glad I didn't choose another Armortec 700 or 900 (although, price-wise, they are still a better buy).

    And, finally, you gotta hear the Saber's sound too
    Ahem, I just retired my MP99 until further notice

    It's dam hard to find old Ti-10 in Indo. Last time I've tried and still find it 2 pcs in Bandung. If I am not wrong the price was Rp 1,000,000 ($107).
    The new Ti-10 is around $95. Luckly a friend sold his old ti-10 to me at $50.
    Hey smichz don't forget to PM me if you are in Indo. Would like to play together, I also can recommend a good badminton shop.

    Default arc 7 first trial play

    Thanks to silentheart I got ARC 7 just before X'mas. Tonight, I played 1 hour with it.

    Racket is 3UG4, no overgrid

    It's head heavy in my feel and also by 3 other players opinions.
    I personally feel it's heavy than NS9000, AT900P.

    Good parts:
    Clears, lifts, blocks, drops, pushes, net-kill

    smash and drives lack little bit power, but better than my NS9000S, which is stiff and head light. I am still not fully recoved from my shoulder pain yet, I guess that's the partial reason.

    My partner did say that I played much better today. So overall, the racket
    is very good.

    SInce it was short session, no time to find out how it behave when I get tired. For me, I found out that a simple rule to judge a racket is after 3 hours
    play with other racket, then play with target racket to see how the new rackets works.

    Are you sure it is going to be release on the 20th? If so, where? Like in Asia first or what?

    There is a difference between official release on the Yonex website in Japan vs. the comming out party in big match/tournmant and when it will arrive in the store for sale.

    what?

    Though I must say, compared to the ns9k's and the at900's...the arc7 was kind of a shy and silent release...the new Arc's released at the AE should be more exciting...

    because I'm going to the AE I'm curious
