Comparatively, the ArcZ (1st trial 2hrs) took me a few shots to tune into. It could be because this is the first game after a 2-week break so all my timing are off anyway. If there is any word to describe the Z, it moves much faster than one will expect of the balance/weight. The Z is not the lightest 3u racket, nor is it head light but it moves fast. The weight gives it decent power (I think the SW35 and my TC700 wins hands down in this area).
For the ArcZ, I did not have any problem with the sweetspot. I get a pretty decent smash from the racket and occasional big ones that surprises me -- almost TC700 strong. It's pretty swift racket so drop shots are easy. Need more getting used to for net plays.
Getting to smashes are easy due to the speed but controlling them is a different story. I agree with twobeer that the racket does disappoint in trying to control smashes and counter attacking. Directional changes, which is important to my game, is somewhat difficult to control. A lot of returns with too little or way too much angle. This could be that I'm not used to the racket or the shaft flexes weirdly.
My other complain is that the ArcZ screws up my TC700 timing quite a bit. I returned to the TC700 in the last 1.5hrs of the session. The same problem with defensive change of direction disappeared.
Overall, I appreciate the ArcZ that it provides a lot of speed without sacrificing too much power. It's certainly quite a good racket so I'm keeping it for a while more to test it out. I think the shaft could be shorter with a longer grip and made stiffer. If the shaft goes any softer though as many posters here have mentioned, watch the marketplace for an ArcZ.

My ranking of all my recent rackets goes like:
3. ZELM PP10k
4. ZELM PP9990
5. Arc Z
6. APACS Tantrum 200
7. My cheapo S$20 racket
8. ZELM Trixon 8
9. Arc 10
I took a long time to like the PP9990 but am instantly in love with the top 3. The trixon 8 actually dropped in ranking as the shaft softens up. I took up to 6 months to decide that the Arc10 is not for me.

It is a very good racket, its my main racket and I know it really well.
Armortec 700 is the most head heavy racket ever produced by Yonex, the ultra light weight of the racket with the head heavy of the racket will make it feels heavy. You need a strong wrist-arm to play well with it. Its a very stiff . This racket yet can produce a powerful smashes due to its head heavy.
A yet balance overall racket. Non-light and non-heavy. Many players go for this racket. Good for an accuracy shots.
Armortec 900 Power
Its same like Armotec 700, light weight with head heavy and stiff. It just Armortec 900 Power is not as head heavy as Armortec 700. In spite of the light body, Armortec 900 Power generates powerful attacking shots and high-level face stability for players who like maximum power in their offensive and defensive game.
An upgrade of Arcsaber 10. Its slim shaft can reduce the air pressure during the shots, as for result, a very powerful shots!
Arcsaber Z-Slash rackets store up energy during the shot, allowing you to attack with pinpoint accuracy.
Its for players seeking a higher level of control.
You should give a hand before you buy it, different racket come with different responsability. ..?Haha!
