The pros has been given the racket to use. It may not be released yet for public but the pros are usually given the racket to try 1st.

If that is the Arc Saber 10, than it will be a black racket? I don't usually like black rackets but I'll have to check it out still

If that is the Arc Saber 10 , I dont really like the colour scheme. I prefer the Arc Saber 7s colour.

yonex has told on the dutch forum (http://cona.nl/yonexforum) that Peter Gade have the ARC10 in his hands on the photo. It's not the default colour on the photo, that's just yet the question.
So Peter Gade was testing the ARC10 on the EC Teams Championschip in the Netherlands.

Confirming ENROC's info. I attended the finals of the EC Teams 2008 today, and saw Gade playing with this mysterious black racket with white corners.
Also got his and Kenneth's autographs
Incidentally, both won easily, and had to leave immediatly after the game. Gade even gave away his shirt to a young kid. Not me

Yonex Arcsaber 10 Review
Yonex Arcsaber 10 Review
Review Date : November 07
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
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. It’s 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 run’s 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.
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 it’s a no sweat stringing this piece of racket. If it’s 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.
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 didn’t really exert much effort. Shuttle placements feel easy using this racket.
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 I’m not really a front guy, using this racket does attract me in playing in the front. Shots deceptions are slightly easier when I’m receiving my opponent’s 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.
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 racket… 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.
Pros : All around racket, Good control.
Cons: Lack of Defense, Price and looks
Suitability : Intermediate/Advance. Singles/Doubles racket
