I cant se why anyone would want sucha aheavy racket anno 2008.. light and powerful is certainly better than heavy and powerful :-)
Rather a more headheavy 3U for power than a mid balanced 2U..
Sorry can't just see the logic why to choose a 2U arc-10!

Are you guys referring to the head heaviness of the ArcSaber 10? The 2U version might be more balanced but has more overall mass. Can anyone do a test with both the 2U and 3U?

BTW, any issue with the T joint durability so far? Any breakage around the T joint area?

To confirm my feelings, I took my scale and measured one of my 900Ps and compared to my arc-10..
The 900P 3U4 with bg80@28lbs was slightly less than 90g.. and the arc-10 3U3 with bg80@28lbs was 94g (original grip, no overgrips etc).. So at least I am happy that I can trust my senses :-)
Anyone have an Arc-10 3U4 that could share the weight with bg80?? (no overgrip etc of course) ?? I am curios how much the grip size difference counts for if anything..
When I break the strings next time I will try to remember to weigh it unstrung as well
Personally I think YY should have made the arc-10 lighter.. If it mid balanced it should definitively not be heavier than the more head-heavy options like 900P in my opinion..
It would make more sense to have a 4U and a 3U option of arc-10 imop, than a 2U/3U option...
I never understood the point of making head-light or mid balanced racket that are overall heavy.. That kind of defeats the desing purpose of makim the quick and agile...
P.S. I am abit confused here.. I just measured my Mizuno TX700 and it was 80g !! with RX100@27lbs ... very confusing.. maybe the scale is poorly calibrated.. or the 3U5 mizuno is really that light and head-heavy?? D.S.

performance/quality/durability wise are there any difference between the SP and the JP version?

i am so happy with AS-10 and yesterday i went to shop a 3u one for my friend, S$279 including NBG95 string. a bit odd to me is that i felt 3ug5 is more head heavy than 3ug4. anyone got the same feeling? btw, it is difficult to get a 2u one in SG

hi, sorry i'm new in this forum
i just bought my AS 10 3U G5 and i think it's the best racket i have since.
actually i dont understand does 3U mean the weight of the racket or only the weight of the head only?
previously i used armortec 800 of.
anybody would like to answer me? thanks
