    Yonex has already given a face to the Arc Saber 10.

    At the AE 2008, Bao Chunlai is using it... red overgrip and all.
    Obviously, this isn't a power-player's racquet

    Well, BCL was recently using the yellow Ti-10, which does pack quite a bit of power, don't you think?

    Hi CML32

    They are not discounting any of the racquets at the All England. The RRP is 160 so i just closed my eyes and handed over my credit card. I was told that the it wont be easy to get hold of for the next 2 months in the shops/online in the UK. So if you can wait till then you might save 20 or so.

    I played with it for the first time last night and loved it (i know I would say that ) a friend at my club tried it too and put the experience well, he said 'it feels like you get more power with less effort' (His normal raquet is a NS 9000) It is difficult to describe how it feels, but I dont think you will be dissapointed. I am getting it restrung to 26lbs and am REALLY looking forward to Sunday when I can really try it out!

    Hope you enjoy the All England

    That's not the Recommended Retail Price.
    That's a Really Ridiculous Price or a Really Rip-off Price

    You should be getting it for around 100 to 120

    And before that he was using the At700... and before that the NS8000 (which Chen Hong turned into a very offensive racquet when he was using it)

    But obviously BCL doesn't play a super offensive game anyways.

    Unfortunately I am in 'rip off Britain' the RRP is 160. The NS9000 still costs 130ish in the UK from good stores. I am sure the price will fall, but it will take a bit of time

    Wink Had my first session with my newly arrived arc 10

    hiya folks

    I just had my arc10 arrvied from mybadmintonstore in hk this morning, just came back from a 3 hour session from my local club. I just thought i d like to share my opinions and experience with it so far;

    I am just your bog standard intermediate club player with lanky fingers if i may add. I usually play with mp99 or at900p before i broke my at 900t. anyway here i go.

    Arc 10 jp strung 24lbs with bg98. 3ug4 with pu super grip

    Not that it is important but this is definately one of the 'redest' if not the 'redest' racquet yonex has to offer . the warming up felt very weird at first ( i have not played with its brother arc7 before) less stiff compare to the at900p, sweetspot was noticabley bigger than at900p. Clears and back to back shots were as easy as at900p however the shuttle placement seems to be more accurate.

    I also noticed the shuttle was less 'sticky' with the arc10. Shuttles felt just like an arrow being released by a streched bow the frame of the raquet is about 30% slimmer than the armortech.

    Now gametime, I love serving with this racquet, my low serves were more accurate and consistant compared to the at900p. Now I dont have a fast swing nor a very powerful wrist but smashing with this raquet felt wonderful, they were very accurate to say the least when I aimed for the sidelines but i didnt felt the 'bang' as i have had with the at900, however I needed not to insert as much power for smashes as with the at900p. and I felt less strains after constant smashes. ( i smashed for like 8 times vs this bloke before he finally broke, perhaps I would have done it fewer with at900p but I definately cannot smash as consistant with it)
    The bigger sweetspot defo made this racquet easier for me. (perhaps i just wasnt good enough for the stifness of the at900p).



    The more I played with this racquet the more comfortable I got playing with it. The feel of this raquet is definately top notch. My drop shots and net blocks were way better and accurate, I used overhit ALOT when playing drops with the at900p and totally sucked at netplay but tonight this raquet made me see my netplay potential.

    I think this is definately a good all round raquet just like ants said, its main strengths are the solid feel and accuracy. Powerwise: it is there for the pros but I wouldnt think it is on par with at700. I retrived smashes better tonight than the at900p perhaps due to the slimmer frame structure it has but I couldnt really lift that high against smashes, I need to insert more power whilst defending with it but it is nevertheless more agile than at900p.

    That was my Personal experience from tonight folks, overall i m very satisfied with this raquet, if you ever thought u are not using ur at900p to its potential or want to try something else for your net games I strongly recommended the arc10.

    + Solid feel and amazing net accuracy. VEry good controls.

    - defensive lifts needs more effort; the weird red colour, PRICE!

    (sorry its late i didnt bother doing spellcheck )

    The basic difference between any AT vs ArcSaber 10 or any slim X-section racquet is that the latter has less air resistance. Reduced air resistance means faster, speedier (shades of effortlesss), and more maneuverable. The distinguishing feature of At series of racquets is their wide X-section at the top, which gives raw power but at the expense of speed.

The Glowing red and white with red grip.. it look nice , more more better than amourtec series , the "down side" is .. The price for this item to me toooo..... expensive RM850.00 (US$244.96) with string ( in East Coast of Malaysia Penisular, Kuala Terengganu Town). Yesterday evening , my buddies , my regular stringer (He also racket shop owner) just strung it 27lbs, it look good... but to me it depend on your playing style , i just strung my racket at 25.5lbs with BG68 titanium for my amourtec 900T
    U can get rm650 with grip and string at puchong.

    The current price of the ARC10 is $1,280 w/ string, it is actually around the same price of the AT900 and NS9000 when it was first released.

    They are selling really fast, at Rose Sports, they had like 6 of them waiting for stringing.

    So far, it seems that there's really only a few positive opinions.
