    Default Backup racket for Arc10

    I have an Yonex Arc 10 as main racket...still learning to wield it

    However, I would like to purchase a cheapish backup racket, say about half the price of an Arc 10. I am not sure which cheaper Yonex would have similar feel. Any recommendations?

    ARC10 don't have a good feel IMO. You should buy another brand for your backup like Apacs or SOTX

    haha i wish i could afford Arc10 as backup! I dont think APAC is available in HK. MP99 slightly out of my range for backup racket. But i know there is a cheaper MP Limited. Wonder if this would be a good one to compliment the Arc10?

    i had the MP limited before & it's more head light than ARC10 in my opinion.

    ic. would it have a negative effect if i play with 2 rackets with different characteristics, i.e. head light vs heavy?

    i actually do find that the arc10 is slightly head heavy, as i have just started playing badminton again after 6 years. but i heard that arc10 is amazing once you learn to use it...

    i gotten the AT900 cause the head heavy feels similar to the ARC10 except AT is stiffer.

    Personally, since it's a backup racquet, both racquet should be same or at least similar. but a different feel is fun too in my opinion.

    Yes, thats what i was thinking. But i have not idea which economical racket would have same feel as arc 10

    how about AT150 or AT250??

    bro...the only way to is to get another Arc10..so u dont haf to re-adjust urself to another racket..dats just my opinion..coz every racket has different characteristics..and if u get another Arc10..u can try other strings and tensions too..which im deciding instead of trying to get the N9900(hehe..) coz im oredi getting used to the Arc10..

    i get your point tq_23. that would be ideal. but i dont want to spend so much on another racket which will only get used when my main racket strings break. also, my wife would kill me if if she saw that i bought another racket EXACTLY the same she would NOT understand!

    My Arc 10 is my backup to my AT900T and both feel about the same except for the stiffness. I also have the apacs clone one which feels less head heavy and also more flexiable and lighter then the orginal. If you can find a AT that's less stiff and not head heavy then go for that one.

    I understand that you might be on a budget - and in potential hot water with the missus - but my opinion is that you should still purchase an identical model. Your current racket will break someday, and you will need another one. If you truly feel a bond with your current model, then it makes sense to pick up another one, before they go off the market. I suppose the other option is to get an apacs or other clone racket...

    i hear ya! i think i need to try and play with other rackets before i commit to the arc 10. after so many years without playing, i really dont know what suites me. but i guess that could be a good thing...i can "learn" to use a particular type of racket from scratch?
