    Yeah it sucks. I think he believes it's my fault, but I know others who have clashed with him before. I wasn't too miffed about it since my 800DE was about 4 years old already. I think a sorry would be ok, really can't ask for money since it is a risk you knowingly take when playing.

    This has already been discussed in another thread, I will just give you some points made from it:
    Playing doubles there is always risk involved, and it is like a unwritten contract when you step on a court with a partner, that you have agreed to play with him/her therefore up one shall be really held accountable, in the case of a clash, resulting in a break. Unless you can prove it was deliberate, malicious etc.
    Asking for compensation shouldn't happen, it should be up to your partner to offer compensation. You can't expect an young inexperienced beginer to fork out $200 for a new zslash at900 etc. They will los intrest if that happens Instead use common sense and and buy a $30 racket to play with amatuers unknown partners etc

    You're right, LD rules. I had a brand new racquet(carbonex 20) broken while playing with a senior a while back. There was no apology or anything. I stopped playing for almost 5 years while living in that community.

    Smile Amazing Racket

    After just receiving my ArcSaber Z-Slash, i franticly scurried to take it out of the bag, once i took it out, i couldn't help myself from not trying a couple swings and seeing how the grip was. I would have to wait until today to finally give it a test run.

    Despite the z slashes isometric slim head, it reminded me of an older iso racket, so i thought i would feel right at home. In the warmup i was amazed how efficiently the racket moved through the air, the racket produces a lot less drag, probably because of the combination of a thin shaft, smaller frame and frame width. The racket felt about evenly balance, but it might have been weighted slightly towards the head. I began the warm up with baseline to baseline clearing, with the racket and its speed it almost felt effortlessly. there was depth and precision in the control of the racket.


    Game time, the racket handled better than expected, despite all the negative attitude to the head shape of the racket i saw on the forums, but i guess that is based on personal preference. It seams that when you play with this racket you have the urge to play more aggressively. the fast swing speed it the only problem one might have with this racket, i only mistimed or mis hit a couple shots in the badminton session. but the power you achieve when you connect with this racket is incredible. i believe that i had some of the best smashes so far in that session. But be warned the the myths about this beast not putting out on defense is true, it is a tad more difficult in retrieving the birdie, but is easier to play if you make contact

    In conclusion the ArcSaber is a great racket for an aggressive player, the speed and power of it is exhilarating and the depth of percussion on shots is great. I would rate this racket a 9/10, lacking only in certain aspects defense and the price is quite steep at $240 US

    I have the Z slash and I don't use much as it is very difficult to use.

    I have tried the N90 and I feel it is certainly one of the best racquet that I have ever use and that's why I will be getting one soon !

    Specs wise, I actually think the Arc 8DX might be a better choice than the Z Slash.

    the Z slash is only hard to get accustomed to it because of its small sweet spot and the quick head speed, once you get the timing down, the racket is a beast. Many give up on it because of the degree of difficulty of using it. I would suggest finding a local dealer that will allow you to demo the rackets or simply borrowing a racket form a fellow club member or friend and see how its feels. Our choice in rackets is as divers as we are

    I don't have the AT700 but the AT700 limited and my N90 is only arriving this weekend.

    I can probably give a quick review next week after I have back to back testing.

    I will bring semtex and c4 if you want explosive power

    I think raw power maybe TC700 has slight edge, but the thing about the N90 is the feel of the racquet, it really really feels good !

    Boss how many exotic rackets do you have? I would have to work pretty hard to catch up with your collection.
