    by more repulsion i mean that it feels like it comes off the string bed quicker, whereas the Z would have it a split second longer and then releases it. kind of like the 'arrow and bow' effect. the hold and release effect is the unique selling point of the arc series. in contrast the nano series has the highest repulsion, best case in point is the extra stiff ns9900.

    the repulsion issue i think isnt only dependent upon the stiffness of a racket but also the technology behind it.

    personally i prefer the arc series to both the others, namely, armotec and nano purely coz i feel that whilst i get a little more time to control the shot coz it holds the shuttle a bit longer, i feel the power isnt sacrificed..it has more of a 'spring effect'

    durability issues, i havent broken any arc Zs (or 10s) or cab 21s so no issues really to comment. i feel the cab21 is very stable and anti torque but overall i prefer the Z.

    waiwai8,

    Thanks again. How much tension you use for the following: Z, NS9900 and Cab 21 respectively? Assuming they're all strung with the same strings?

    all 30lbs with nbg95..

    really, the Z is a very good racquet. people just need to get used to it, but when they do, they'll find its very rewarding.

    Take good care of the Maxima there... its a hard string to break considered its thinness.

    It depends. Personally i own JP Arc Z, UK Arc Z and SP Arc Z. Sad to say, SP Arc Z the paint finishing is a bit unsatisfactory, compare to JP and UK ones. UK ones are actually having the same smooth and nice shiny overall finishing like the JP ones. If i put the 3 rackets side by side and let you see, feel, touch them, you will know what i mean. (So, as much as Yonex trying to tell us that all code have same quality finishing, sadly, some items are not.)
    PS: I have gone to double check my eyes and have a psychologist to prove i am not insane to made the above statement. :P

    personally paint job is not a big issue but sadly they only issue certain specs of certain country code. for example its impossible to find 2u of AS and NS in msia.

    That appears to be post-contact. I wonder what the racket looks like in the middle of a forehand swing >.<

    But on second thought, if i do buy some more Arc Zs maybe it is time to go see a psychologist.

    I don't think there's actually a cure for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (to own more than enough copies of the same thing, in your case Arc Zs that is)

    I am an ArcSaber Fan... But Z this the last ArcSaber racket I want to have...
    I don't like the banana color...And a little stiff for me...
    If I choose a stiff racket, I prefer 10...
    But Z is very hot in China... Z is everywhere...
