    It does not feel like it blasts away the shuttle like an AT, but the shuttle flies just as long...
    Love it though.. Been having a bit of shoulder/elbow pains, but they are totally gone!
    Just gotta get used to that "boing" feeling
    "Boing" is good. Still loving mine. Slightly built up the grip at the "palm" area with foam and now the racquet is doubly perfect.

    When you're used to BAM, Boing is wierd at first But it exceeded my expectations!
    Can you explain the grip-thing you're talking about?

    It's a thin piece of foam, 1/8thick x 1/2wide, wrapped once on the grip, positioned at the hollow part of your palm, then a Yonex AC102EX overgrap on the whole grip. It serves as a second anchor besides the gripend. Feels great as well.

    Are the length of the handle and the shaft the same on different grip sizes (G3, G4, G5 ...)?

    Btw I noticed the japanese and british yonex websites are officially listing the Arcsaber 8DX.

    today i tried z-slash (3U BG65P 24x26) of my friend and my new 8dx (2U BG80 24x26).

    my impression is z-slash faster than 8dx (maybe caused by different weight) and easier to clear. so far i still havent found what is special about 8dx. maybe i need some time to adjust.
    one thing for sure 8dx is stiffer than z-slash.

    i noticed that frame shape is like mizuno tc700 but thicker.
    btw, my main racket is cab30 (3U BG80 24x26).

    Maybe 3U is the wonder size? :/
    Mine is a 3U and it is wonderful BG-80 also (always liked BG-68ti, but in the ARC8, BG-80 makes magic).

    imho a 3u z-slash's is also faster than a 3u 8dx, i believe its due to the head heaviness of the 8dx.

    ARC ZS is head heavier than ARC 8DX.

    ARC Z is "faster" because of its slimmer and more aerodynamic frame.

    For my case, i found my 3u arc Z head heavier than my 3u arc 8dx (same string , same type & length of grip).
    But the 3u arc 8dx is overall heavier than 3u arc Z.
