    No doubt. But shouldn't that be up to the players to decide? I mean, I'm not advocating for an entire line of 4U even-balance racquets but it's not like it's a crazy idea for Yonex to release 1 arcsaber or armortec that fits that mold. They're both already halfway there. Besides, compare a 4U even balance racquet to a 3U head light racquet. Would there be a significant drop-off? I think the option should exist. I would buy one!

    For those that have tried it...how head-heavy is it...? o___O

    More or less than Arc10? How much less than AT700...?

    Can't wait for sohubuy to stock it -___-'

    Played with it again yesterday and still loved it. Clashed once but survived with only a couple of paint chips. Very solid feel and accurate. Needs more pushing than the A900P 'coz it's stiffer..but overall it's still a great racquet. Not about to give up the A900Ps just yet as they have been "the racquet". Since playing with the Arc8DX(5 hours), I haven't touched the A900P, unlike the ArcZ where I had to after every game!!

    That's what I found, eventhough both are rated stiff...maybe the A900P have lost some of its stiffness

    U is 5 gram underweight.
    Normally a racket weights 100 gram
    2u is around 90gram
    3u is around 85gram
    The 4 and 5 stands for grip thickness

    Matt, I bet yours are still brand new. With your collection, how do you figure which racquet to use or bring every time you go play?

    Loved it even more playing last night. So consistently positve. Getting another one today for backup.

    I bought a 3U G5 Arc8DX SP and tried it out last night. I would concur with the comments below. Its plays like an Arc7 and have a solid feel as Matt and Ants pointed out.

    imho I find the 3U Arc10 more forgiving, easier to use and less demanding than the 3U Arc7/8DX.

    The differences is the stiffness as it is a bit stiffer and it does feel a little on the light side swings a little fast compared to Arc 7, therefore you need to adjust the timing a bit. Other than that, I believe it's a pretty good racket to use.

    Why does it take so long for certain stores to put out the Arc8 and Arc5...(particularly sohubuy...whom hasn't replied to any of my e-mails...)?

    I sold my Arc 10 a few months ago so I don't have one to compare to get a comparision. Chilli could possibly to compare for you.

    If they are one of the top selling stores to Yonex, they would be getting the goods fast. Stores who dont' reply to email, I would just shop somewhere else.
