    your saying Im jumping ships because i decided to stay with my old racket? and that not making a $250+ investment that is probably 80% marketing is not jumping ships???

    (yeah im also in a bad mood because i cracked one of my ns9000s today and lol...Im not going to buy a arc10 thought :P)

    and going back to topic, would u recommend this racket to someone? that is a good question, and why?

    You can't blame him b/c there are currently lots of people jumping off the Laffs and Sens bandwagon in Ontario. Just j/k...

    So far, I have broken 1 NS9000X (warranty covered), and 1 Arc7... I know how it feels...

    What I'm saying is that people shouldn't be lemmings and be reliant on others to make their decisions for them. The review by oldhand is exactly what it is, his review. To him, it doesn't feel right. To you or someone else... who knows. As advocated my many (including myself) the best way is to try it out first. Then you'll know if it suits you. Case in point is when the ArcSaber 7 came out, sure I was curious. Some people I knew swore by it. So I tried it, found it wasn't my cuppa and stuck with my trusted NS9000X. Not that I wanted to buy an Arc Saber 7.

    In the end you buy a racket to help improve your game, not because it's the latest and greatest thing out there or it looks good on you.

    Isn't it true that with one-piece stringing the mains will be looser and there's a higher possibility that the frame will deform?

    Yes and true. But... most pros (99.978%) will string with one-piece...

    it's ok for them because all of them are sponsored by Yonex and other brands.. so if ever the racquet break or deformed, they will just get another batch from shop.. easy....

    I have been stringing with one piece at tension of 26 x 26 or 28 x 28LBS. Have not break any rackets so far.

    Just make sure that the stringer himself is also a badminton player....

    Thanks.

    1 piece gives better tension holding, because not many knot

    I have no idea, but it seems like that in Japan, one-piece stringing is the most commonly used stringing method. I do understand the concept that the mains will be looser, but aren't the mains already supposed to be looser than the crossses by 2lbs ? I dont quite like two-piece stringing right now. All my racquets which were restrung with two-piece stringing seems to have a narrower and longer frame. Or maybe it's just the stringer's problem.

    Obviously the stringer problem, they probably either pull your racket too long when they put on the machine or they add too much tension on the cross string. I string racket by myself and I can't wait to get ArcSaber 10 on my hand. I'm waiting it to come out in TH version and ask my friend to buy it for me.

    This thread is about the Yonex Arc Saber 10.
    Take the stringing debate elsewhere, please

    The ArcSaber 10 has arrived here in KK, Sabah... the price was RM 849 = USD 240 (roughly)... far too expensive beyond my reach... sigh.. but i was surprised to find it had arrived here already, kinda early... normally it would take a few months for new rackets to arrive...

    was surprised by the redness of it... hehe... but nice racket....

    does anyone know if anyone in AE08 using the Arcsaber10? Gao Ling's normally very adventurous with new racquets...

    and does anyone know when this racquet will be available at shops in BKK? going there in july...considering swapping my AT900Ts for this new kid on the block! (so to speak)

    I have actually decided against getting the Armortec 900 3U jp, I think I just like to buy something new because makes me feel good. I'm doing fine with my 4u uk.

    How Was the jp different?

    Mcchooi - what kinda standard are you. Plus age and whats your power like(are you double strong)? etc.

    Got any 900T jp left?

    Default Initial Thoughts

    Used it today to play Singles.

    Didn't really feel there is much difference between AS7 and AS10 to be honest. It was strung at 24x26 lbs with NBG 98. Will probably do a full review after using it for a couple more times.

    3U > 4U!! =)

    I'll have to have to see when I get my racket. 25.5/27.5 via NGB98 yeehah!! That's only on my ARC7, ARC10 will most likely be the same.
