    Nobody have used the 2ug5 one either. It might be very powerful.

    Racket Type : Yonex ArcSaber 10
    Specs : 3UG4
    Strings: Yonex Nanogy98 ( Supplied )
    Tension: 30lbs , 1 Piece Stringing
    Stringing Machine : Yonex ESPRO
    Grip: Original Grip
    Technology : CS Carbon Nanotube,Newly built in T-joint,Super HMG (High Modulus Graphite), Ultra PEF (Polyethylene Fibers)
    Shuttle Used: Yonex Official and Yonex Tournament

    First Impression:
    The technology behind this racket is definitely a much improved version of the ArcSaber7. I would say Arcsaber 10 is on a class of its own. However the color itself is not as striking. Itís a disappointment for me as I would expect this racket will cause fear to the opponents by just a look at it. But then still water runís deep. It may look tame but the Arcsaber10 is definitely a dangerous weapon for those who use it. And at the same time people might get used to the racket color as time goes by. This is also proven when the Nanospeed9000 color way came out, it look funny and weird but after a while many love this racket just by the looks itself. So I guess it will be the same for the Arcsaber 10. If i were to give a nickname to this racket i would call it Black Magic. The name enough might strike fear to your opponent.

    Stringing Impression:
    Based on the facts and technology that I have about this racket. I have no fear in stringing this racket at high tension. But since my usual tension is at 30lbs, I find that itís a no sweat stringing this piece of racket. If itís a 2U it would be much easier. Racket head and frame had slight movement when pulled but I guess its common for all rackets but I would say that Its even more stable than stringing a Armortec 700. With a good support of the World best stringing Machine ESPRO make the job easier.


    Warm Ups:
    I like the weight of this piece of technology. The racket does feel stiffer than the Arcsaber 7. It does not vibrate as much. And the shuttle does looks that it bounce back faster once it touches the string bed during hitting. Controlling the shuttle on the net is much better and if those who are used to head heavy racket will not have any problem adapting to Arcsaber 10 in terms of net play. As for flat drives I may need to exert more wrist do have the best results. Slow smashes feel good and I didnít really exert much effort. Shuttle placements feel easy using this racket.


    Game Time:

    The speed of the shuttle released from this racket is fairly noticeable compare with the other rackets I used. Smash seems faster and in competitive playing speed does matter. Although Iím not really a front guy, using this racket does attract me in playing in the front. Shots deceptions are slightly easier when Iím receiving my opponentís serve. I am satisfy in the smashing power ability produced by Arcsaber 10 , but I do wish there were more Ommph in it. Maneuverability wise I found it is easier for me to change my gripping method from offense to defense and vise versa. Even flat push and drives was good, just that I have to push my wrist and thumb more to produce a little more power to counter my opponents flat drives. In terms or retrieving smashes, this racket does not disappoint me although I have to put more effort on it because at the same time it does allow me to control the shuttle while defending from smashes. I can feel the shaft bend to create the torque when defend and during smashes which are a good thing in badminton because it allows more power generated from the racket to the shuttle. If I were Fu Hai Feng, I might create another smash speed record with this racket.

    Conclusion:

    Arcsaber 10 is a racket that will appeal to vast range of players from amateurs and professionals alike. Many will appreciate its usability and adaptability. It has the all around performance from speed, power and control. If you are looking for more Power from this racket, I would suggest you to get a 2U version instead. Arcsaber 10 offers enough improvement over Arcsaber 7 to make an upgrade or racket switch justifiable. If you are looking for an upgrade, you might want to consider Arcbsaber 10. However the only factor that hinders someone in getting the racket is the PRICE. With the technology and materials used in making this Arcsaber 10 the results produced does satisfy my curiosity and I have no regret using this racket as one of my main racketÖ of course until a better one comes along.

    I would rate this racket in terms of Feel, Control, Power and Defense. However it is based on my own test and review. It may vary depending on the player, tension and what string you use.

    Feel: 9.5/10
    Control: 9.5/10
    Power: 9/10
    Defense: 8.5/10
    Maneuverability: 8.5/10


    Pros : All around racket, Good control.
    Cons: Lack of Defense, Price and looks

    Suitability : Intermediate/Advance. Singles/Doubles racket

    2U would be a better option. Please read my review above.

    Hi ANTS,

    How is Arc Saber 10 compared to AT900P.

    I sold away AT900P because I can derive more power from AT700. But... AT900P is really quite a good racket.

    I am looking at the 3UG4 version.

    Thanks.

    The racket feels head heavy just like my AT900P (AT900P a bit more heavier) although on the shaft said even balance and it swings like NS9KS. I like the colour of this racket. It's bright red as bright as my red stringing machine.

    In 2 weeks i'm going to Minneapolis/Bloomington. I have 2 questions.

    1) Do they sell them in Minneapolis/U.S?
    2) How much does it cost?

    Wow, that looks amazing Chica! Nice pictures! The red is really bright, matches perfectly to with your Stringing Machine.

    You say it swings like an NS9KS, but the head is just as head heavy as the AT900P. How would you rate the racket on power, feel, defence and manouverability, etc. when compared to those 2 rackets?

    Thanks for the pics!

    you do know that GREEN () is good for the eyes, and red () is bad for your eyes if you stare at it for a long time right?

    With that much red either you're spending each day as Chinese New Years or you're going to need some pretty uncool glasses.

    just kidding but seriously, too much red is bad for the eyes

    Default Pics Of My ArcSaber 10

    My first post woooo!!!!

    Hi Guys and Girls.

    I have recently been researching the ArcSaber 10 on this forum and many other websites and found it very useful. I went to the All England on Friday and purchased the ArcSaber 10. I previously had been using the NS8000 which I found was a brilliant racket with a good combination of power and touch. This is what attracted me mostly to the Arcsaber 10. After reading posts from owners and ants I decided to get my ArcSaber 10 racket restrung with BG80 at the All England by a guy from CentralSports to add a little more power. I predominately play menís doubles and consider myself an offensive power player but still require a good touch with fast racket head movement. From watching Zheng Bo and Jung J S on Sunday they were both using the ArcSaber 10. This filled me with confidence that I had brought the right racket for me (not comparing my skill to theirs). I played with the racket on Saturday morning for a bit of light training and found, touch, racket speed and power all to better than my previous racket but to what degree it remains to be seen. I am playing on Monday and I am in a match on Tuesday so will do a more comprehensive report for potential buyers after. Here are a few pictures of the Arc 10.

    i think it'll looks better with a deeper red grip, kinda like what BCL has.

    how much were they going for at the AE?

    and how much did stringing cost?

    just curious ...

    BCL and PG, who were in the Arc10 Advertisement are now using the ARC10.
    Will LCW be using the ArcSaber 10 too ?

    i hope not, he's been doing well with the at900p so far.
    he's made it at least to the SF of the last few SS, barring the korean open when he was ill, so i think he feels comfortable with it.
    i hope there isn't any marketing pressure on him to change.

    Agree with you Dreamzz, would hate to see one of my favourite players have to change rackets due to marketing pressure from Yonex and end up not doing as well as he is with the at900p

    Yeah i prefer the deeper red grip but i didn't have one to hand (gutted). The racket cost me £160 and £15 for the restring (at 23 Lbs). Central Sports said they would probably be on sale in their shop and online in 2 or 3 months for about £135 £140.
