Does anyone know what the the prestrung manufacturers tension is set at? 4. Finally is the racquet a fake? it says made in Taiwan, I had a black knight feather XL a couple of years ago and it said made in Canada.

    Well, this isn't in the good thread, and maybe the mods will move you post and my answer.

    It is ashaway strings, something like powergut 66 or 65. On the made in Canada part, I am very surprised since BK is a Canadian company but they usually do not make their rackets in Canada, so maybe you had something more like Babolat (that has : Engineered in France).

    My first racket was Carlton Fireblade Iso S-Lite until I whacked the racket on the ground due to frustration of making silly mistakes (which I regret still, since I can't find the same racket anywhere). Now I'm using Carlton Vapour Trail Storm (which I'm taking more care of). I'm looking for a back-up racket just incase the strings snap on my current racket which are still the original from when I purchased it. Although I would like to add to your collection of racquets and curious to try a racquet everyone was talking about but I voted for a little of everything mentioned.

    My Arcsaber FB died.

    Looking at the Arcsaber 6 for a less wallet-breaking replacement, hopefully will play similarly...

    From what I've read, it'll play even better! Just update us when you have a chance to play with the arc6

    as of this year, 2013, i would get a new racket because i'm just tired of the one i currently use.

    but as of May 2013, i will no longer be able to buy another racket for at least the next couple years.

    After last summer, I've stopped buying rackets, in fact I'm selling some. Mainly because I think I should focus on adapting to my current rackets than looking for a new one that might seem better suited for me.

    I've already improved so much with my stiff rackets, and generating more power. During summer I wanted a mid-stiff racket to generate power, and ease my elbow soreness and now there's no need for it anymore.

    I rather spend money on different strings now that I found a slightly head heavy and stiff racket.

    I look for new racquets when the ones I have are getting old.You'll know when "their time has come".Before their time has come,they start losing sweet spots;you can't really get much power out of them.So,when the times like that comes I start looking for back ups.
