    Thanks.
    Then that is too expensive already.......

    Can get it for $270-$280 inclusive of stringing with NBG 98.

    Yup, but... if it is a new racket, keep it at 25 x 25 for the time being, until you are willing to forgo your warranty.....

    Thanks.

    You obviously don't know what "contradicted" means.

    The black was a full-spec prototype sans the cosmetics.
    Sort of like a car being road-tested... without the final paint job

    that yonex's salesguy said, the soon arriving stock is 4U.
    so, let me wait few more days and check it out.
    if it is only 3U, i will kick him down to the road from 18th floor.......

    hahaha.. luckily i din read this...

    anyway, thanks for letting me try that beautiful arc10.
    i think i must agree with you that this arc10 not much different feeling as compare to arc7.

    i still think my next new racket will be at900t..

    Thumbs up

    In all, the Yonex ArcSaber 10 (with Yonex BG-80 string, an ArcSaber racquet cover, a Yonex AC102EX synthetic grip wrap, and free stringing) cost me SGD 298. I bought it from 10+10, Bras Basah Complex, Singapore

    By the way, the cone code is 310182SP (so, Yonex took a while to ship it).

    It's a 3UG5 model and the stated maximum tension is 24lbs.
    These are the same for the ArcSaber 7 as well.
    The ArcSaber10 also has the same overall length, shaft length and head width as the ArcSaber7.
    And it's got all those important words the Arc7 has... and one more: Ultra PEF.

    Sadly, the Arc10 doesn't come with its own stand-out cover... what you get is the same curving (apparently saber-like) cover that Yonex introduced with the Arc7


    First Look & Stringing:

    The first thing you notice about the racquet is that the Arc10 comes with a red original grip (while the Arc7 has a standard black original grip). It's made of very poor quality rubber... and will easily peel off along with the plastic wrap unless you're really careful.

    In any case, there's not much use being careful... shift your grip a few times during play and it begins to come off in slivers (In hindsight, it was a good thing to have added an extra grip to the package)

    As with the Arc7 earlier, the stringer didn't bat an eyelid when I asked for one-piece stringing at 29lbs. The Arc10 takes it easily... except that it's not recommended for the squeamish (the frame deforming inwards, though slightly, is quite a heart-stopping sight)


    Warm-Up:

    I chose one of the better local groups to test-play the Arc10 (for the curious: this is one of the 'heavyweight' Sunday-evening groups at Singapore's Hougang Sports Hall)

    The first trial shots were an absolute surprise... the feel was exactly that of the Arc7 Stunned, I switched to a Ti-10 for a few shots... and then picked up both the ArcSabers. Switching them in my racquet hand for every alternate shot, I went through an extended warm-up, comprising mostly forehand-backhand clears and drops.

    To put it simply, it was weird... the Arc7 and Arc10 felt the same


    The Real Thing:

    We began a game.
    Now, something was different... the smash and the drive.
    With the Arc10, both shots simply deteriorated in power and accuracy

    The reason probably lies in my hitting style and the shaft's flex.
    I hardly swing for smashes and drives... preferring to either whip or tap furiously. I guess I like 'em stiff However, the Arc10's shaft is less stiff than that of the Arc7 (not by much, but you can see the difference if you hold down the head and hang a dumbbell on the grip).

    In other spheres (drops, clears, arcing blocks to the net, etc), if you have the Arc7, you have the Arc10. As for net-play, the Arc7 is the winner


    Verdict:

    In my opinion, the ArcSaber 10 is poor value for more money. In fact, towards the end of my 3-hour session tonight, I found myself switching to the Arc7 for the second half of the game

    Marketing will tell you that the Arc10 has new or improved technology!
    Where is that?
    What is that?
    Ultra PEF?
    Gimme a break!

    Except for cosmetics and new high-sounding catch-phrases, the ArcSaber 10 feels and plays like the ArcSaber7.

    Well, if there's anything special about the Arc10, it's the colour and the paint job. It looks classy (from afar too) and the red coat goes really well with the red grip. (But be sure to stock a few red overgrips... the original isn't gonna last more than a few fast game sessions.)

    The only good reason I'd recommend buying the Arc10 is the price.
    Since the ArcSaber7 is still selling at close to the ArcSaber10's price, you might as well go get the new toy
    I rest my case - **** could be marketing for yonex
