What's your playing style?
From the sound of you using a MP, i don't think that the arcs are suited to your smashing playing method.

Arc is all rounder racket. Average in everything....

I am a super strong believer that a few hits give feedback muahhahhhaha! j/k
Yeah, people need to use the racket for a little while for it to go through the break-in peroid before they notice how the racket actually performs. I remember this for my ARC7 where I played it for the first hour and didn't like it because it felt like there was not any power comming out of it even thou there was very good control. After a while during the second hour, the power began to come in then I started to like the racket.

I liked the Arcsaber after my first encounter using it. One can actually tell @ the first few shots that, hey, this is not the right racket for you.
It might be due to my playing style being so similar to what the arc is meant to serve for and i fell in love with it at first sight

at first it doesnt give much satisfaction of hitting...
after i use it for 1 week

it gives hard and controlled shots....

at first, it felt as though there were alot of vibrations. quite bad..after that, much of them were gone and it plays real well

Make good use of the control of the racket (since it has real good control and def) and use it to play your game, slow the ball down like terraglow has said and well, play long and shot balls, in a random pattern and in a random direction and try different combinations like sudden drops, or smashes ect.
This way, your opponent has no means of predicting your moves. If he is able to play fast and return your smashes, change your tactic to one that is more slow paced. The Arc10 is able to do it real well. This would make him impatient and he would make mistakes if he wishes to kill you fast. further more, when you play slow, you have more time to react if your other party smashes and you can return the shots more easily.
just my 2 cents worth though =x

thanks guy ... for the advice i been trying to play slow ... but i late the idea to make usre the racket to swing slow .. it seem i always in a face pace game ... any idea on how to slow the game time . slower swing ? wait before i serve ? is that all i can do ?
sorry for being off topic .. but i do need to know this... Thanks everyone.

i try doing that .... and just get smash ... on the side line .. and i just can't return a powerful smash to the side .. that is why i always end up playing a face pace game.
my co-player just say i am totaly in cosistent ... can't play a good set of badminton game
stress me out.
now i am totaly converted to arc saber 10 for single it does help but ...... the problem is not the racket .. is me ...

The key is not to rush in with any serious offensive strokes like the heavy smash until you are ahead in the rally. At the same time, introduce some deceptive shots to slow your opponent down especially when you can get to the shot early.

It's not always possible to return smashes down the tramplines, especially if those smashes are coming down hard from mid-court. So the best defense is to make sure you are pushing the opponent to the court limits and not give them too much time. Bias your defense if you are not already doing so. A down the line smash is always steeper and faster than a cross court so you'll need to be able to reach the straight smash faster shifting your base nearer.
Lastly, the best person to talk to after losing a game is the opponent who just defeated you (IMHO). Pick a few more recent rallies that he won and discuss the specifics with him. Most opponents will be most happy to share why they won.
