Also, may I ask what is your racquet head speed during a defensive clear of a return smash? I would like to know in the case of your racquet is on forhand side and you need to defend a smash on the back hand side (or vice versa). My understanding is in the case the racquet BP and head lightness trump all the air resistance because you need all the initial acceleration you can get from 1 side to another. Then stop, then flick. Unless all these moves are done in at higher than 150 km/h (or about 94 mph) the corss section makes very small difference.
It is not the effect of air resistance, it is effect of extra mass on the racquet head. To debunk your claim, just put 4g of leads tape (1 2g lead tape on the oppiside of the fram wall (about 13~14th grommet on the side). This will simulate the same effect of the string weight. I can tell you it will swing like the same racquet with string. Slower because of extra mass, not air resistance.

Any lighter head for NS you will run the risk of breaking the frame because the momentum can not effectively transfer over to the shuttle.

Sorry, Jerby, You know I am kidding right???
I just want to bring up 1 racquet. CAB20 BABY! It was good then and it is still as good as 20+ years ago.

There are enough new age materials and resins to put together an ultra fast and powerful racquet today in the below 90g weight category.
In the 1950s we had 150g wooden racquets; in the 1960s we shaved off 30g to 120g; in the carbon graphite age from the 1980s we shaved off another 26g to 94g. Today we are still stuck with 94g (2U), despite so many improved resins and materials.

Let's keep this all related to the Yonex ArcSaber 10

I'm sure with the current technology we could make a racquet that could withstand all the forces or even much greater forces with a weight of 20g. Costs aside, how viable is such a racquet? You would have to swing almost 5 times faster to get the same transfer of momentum. As we're human's we have physical constraints, the faster we accelerate something in our hands the more we are prone to injuries. I think racquets in the future will become slightly lighter, maybe like 5/6/7U, but not much more after that, not unless we're all on steroids
I'm getting an Arc10, but it won't be here for a while

Cannot agree less...
Leveraging the racket weight, power and control is not mere quality control; getting the best out of best. It is more of market research; knowing what people want; adopting new standards to meet the demand. It not creating something superb and wanting the entire market to adopt new practices into order to adapt to the superb qualities.
Arc Saber 10 is a revolutionary product; one that has evolved over the number of years, through successes and failures...
Yes, Arc Saber 10 is the one...

Niche Marketing! :P
Does anyone know what the retail price would be for this racket in Canada?
03-28-2008, 10:45 AM #658
About $230~$240 USD

the more i use arcsaber 10 the more i am convince that its strength as compared to other yonex racquets is its ability to remain stable even in cases of offcenter hits. As if it was design more for ordinary recreational players than for professional players (which is a good thing for me). I applaud the designers of this racquet. We can discuss and analzye the dimensions and physics of racquets all day long but in the end we the players will be the best judge which racquet would work best for our style of play and technique.

played with the 10 again last night, and like most people, i can't get enough of it. even though i was half dead, i just wanted to play more. the control of it just gets better with each match; smashes feels more solid and the sound it just awesome and drops from the back, especially the cross courts, are accurate and tight - something i can't really do with the 900P
now a colleague of mine wants to buy one, and one still with a ??
I LOVE IT!!

I like the 7 more for double... I think the 7 is faster. (note: please don't give me those x-sec crap again)

So is it definitely a good upgrade from Acr 7 at extra $30 bucks?
I liked the medium flex of Arc 7 and even balance, but it sounds like Arc 10 has better review at little more $.
