Victor seem to sit somewere in between and innovate and create large amount of models, tryinge different tech, for their pros to try out.

    They do in-lab R&D to have improve on their nano-technology. I have no idea how that helps, but i really like the feel of Arcsaber Z slash

    Since we are in this Arc Z-Slash forum, I would like to inform you that Taufik string his BG at 33lbs for the tournoments. This is real as I see the receipt. So, dun worry about the tension issues here.

    Taufik used to string harder, I think he went down to 33lbs when he switched to bg-66, and btw he mostly uses the ARC-10 even though they made that special Taufik edition of the Z.

    For curiosity sakes, you string at the mid 30s or high 30s, like 35/37 lbs.?

    That's because he's sponsored.. can string till very high tension.. if racket frame crack or anything, he can change to a new racket anytime.

    As for ppl like me who is poor, i can't afford to buy another Z Slash if my current Z slash racket break..

    Wooow! That's pretty outta my league! For trials sake, yes. For real game play, heck I'm nowhere near...in fact, I now know I can handle it best at 27/29 after much experimentation!

    Cheers,

    For those with a Zslash SP version, does it say SP at the bottom of the shaft to denote its a SP version ? I mean on the grip end if the shaft right below the two red arrow.
    I am looking to buy a used one and dont recall seeing the word SP on the shaft ??

    Picked up a Z and tried it today. I definitely prefer it over a Arc10. To me, that extra speed it generates help me smash and defend better. I have been using an oval shape racket so the "smaller" sweet spot is not an issue at all. The backhand clear also feels a lot more powerful compare to the Arc10.
    For those who are old dog like myself and play long enough to experiment the Aerotus series, think the Z cut thru the air similar to the Aerotus 110 (think its same design concept.) IMHO, the Aerotus 110 is still the king when it comes to minimal air resistance !

    The Taufik's Z-Slash has a much better paint job, IMHO. More serious than fun. The price is the same and it's a limited edition to boot

    Hmmm... I am confused

    Is there a difference between the Taufik Z Slash, and the normal Z Slash ? I tried the Taufik one tonight, and it actually felt great, i will need to try it a bit more, but i think it was actually quite good. I was actually quite suprised

    There are the LCW's Armortec900P in yellow, Peter Gade's Arc10 in white and the Taufik's ArcZ in red/black/white. All three are signed respectively. The LCW's A900P looks great as well(as seen in the Commonwealth Games). All same prices as the regular ones.

    i know all of this, it is just that the Arc Z TH feels better than the Arc ZS that i tried a couple of months ago, maybe i had an off day last time i tried it. The shaft is flexy, in comparsion to what i have been using before, but i think i may have to purchase a 3uG4 just for the fun of it.

    I actually cant believe what i am saying, i have actually gave a complement to the Arc Z. Anyone notice that it plays better with a higher tension ? I was using 28lbs and it felt good.

    @tckang, @ RvS watch this space.
