whats so good about the Arcsabers?
So Yonex released there Arc 10 a few months ago
but whats good about them?
they don't have a special frame make like Armortec's Power Armour Frame and Muscle power's Muscle power Frame
they just have special yonex tech combined
so whats so good about the arc sabers?

ummm they release arcsaber nearly a year ago...
arcsabers have the slimmest head among all the yonex range...
gives you fast maneuverability in games, and great control....
power is just above avverage.....

They have a flexible frame....you have to try it to find out. It's pretty odd.

Arc10 has a nice color IMO and stands out on the court compare to those AT. Control and speed is excellent and decent power.

Arcsabers also have a slimmer shaft (by 0.5mm). The flexible frame also has the 'whippy/snappy' feeling of Elastic Ti, but 'whips/snaps' a bit more (imo).

No offense, but what does 0.5 mm do? That's like a really small amount and there doesn't seem to be much difference....

dose 0.5mm real make a diff?
yonex says that the arcsabers have the highest repulsion
what is repulsion? anyone know?
03-14-2009, 04:47 PM #9
Highest repulsion is how fast the birdie get's pushed away from the racquet.

so i guess arcsabers are good?
seeing what what07 said
its probly good for smashers
EDIT: NVM i mistaken hold for repulsion
03-14-2009, 05:07 PM #11
Hold = how well the bird stays on the frame.
So like I said, the ARC racquets have a flexible frame; it "holds" more.

Repulsion and hold both can create extra power. Think of snooker - instead of taking a really fast shot, players often let the ball hang on the cue a bit longer to transfer more energy. The Arcsaber works like that meaning it has good power and control. The Nanospeed series have elastic Ti, the shuttle bounces off more and that's how they offer their power. Deathsticks, yes, the Arcs are good.

I find the Arc 7 to be a weird racquet that doesn't agree with me and come away pretty disappointed. Having used a Cab 21 SP over the last 10 years, moving to the Arc 7 was a big difference but not necessarily a better choice.
For the first time in 15 years I developed muscle pain in my forearm as a result of using the Arc 7 for 2 months. (I play 3x a week)
Have recently switched back to the Cab 21 for 3 weeks and the pain has disappeared. I'm sure that has to do with me rather than the racquet but thought it worth mentioning. Perhaps I'm more suited to a traditional racquet?
Am tempted to buy a new Cab 21 or 30 but would like to try something different. In a nutshell, am looking for something with the accuracy of a Cab but the maneuverability of the Arc.

I'm interested to know how ARC10 compares to Cab20 or 30 and wonder if many longtime oval racket users have the same issue. Wish there's someone can let me try his/her ARC10

My rackuet before was AT500. Then, got a new ARC10 last week, and can to feel the difference straight away. I played 5 double games, and 1 single game today with the new rackuet. I think I developd more power on my smashes, easier to clear and more control. Overall, the racket is superb!

It's decidedly strange that, all of a sudden, the ArcSaber 10 has turned out to be a losers' racquet
Lee Yong-Dae simply isn't winning anymore.
Taufik Hidayat has now become semifinal material.
Chen Jin too hasn't been able to make much headway.
Jung Jae-Sung got packed off to Korea's army barracks.
The last time Bao Chunlai won anything is a long time ago.
On the other hand, the Armortec and Titanium series are ruling strong.
Lee Chong Wei, Lin Dan and Cai Yun are Armortec users.
Fu Haifeng, Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong are Ti-10 users.
To echo the thread's title: "what's so good about the ArcSabers?"

Danstevens, 0.5mm gained on the the string makes (22 (cross) + 21 (main)) * .5 = 21.5mm. That's > 2cm of surface less.
On the other hand, .5mm on the frame makes a lot less difference.
Having said that, I use an Arc10 and am very pleased with its control (drops and net-play are awesome) and decent power. Now I'm thinking of getting a NS9900 to complement it with a racquet with different specs.
I have to string my Arc7 > 25lbs to get half-decent power.
