    I may get one when I am back to hk.

    I am currently using Ti 10 (purple) and feeling that the shot is not very solid, and I hope Arc 8DX can give me a more powerful and solid hitting feel.
    I am using NS9900 as well, great racket. The racket is just a little light for me, good for double games. Not very solid compare to Arc8DX. I like Arc8DX over NS9900 now . How was the Ti10 gen3? I really want to try it out but can't find any one to borrow .

    I have 2...one strung with NBG98 and the other with BG85....both @ 26/28 #s, and are the best Yonex high-ends I've used(have used all of them)...so far.

    NZ2010,

    Ti 10 is good for the driving, netting and defense/counter shots. But just kind of weak when I am at the back of the court
    Punching clear is good, but when I want a heavy, powerful smash, it's hard to generate power (maybe it is due to my technique is not good enough ToT) and it couldn't give me a solid hitting feel.

    but to me Ti 10 is still a good bargain, since it only cost me $780 HKD, its around $110 AUD.

    I recon that ti 10 and NS 9900 is kinda similar, the shaft of ti 10 is not as 'responsive' as ns 9900. I need more power to handle the ti 10.

    If you're a hard-hitter, then you should try out a loaner...but I'm pretty sure you'll like it..I switched, and no regrets!

    i disagree. i tried a Ti-10 and a NS9900 one after another, the feeling of the NS9900 is crisper and it is more even balanced. while the Ti-10 is more dull with a much of pronounced mass towards the head. both are strung at the same tension with same string by the same stringer.

    BS10 swing faster but more difficult to generate powerful smash (compare to 8DX) but very rewarding when you be able to do it , very stiff and moderate head heavy.
    8DX swing not as fast as BS10 but equal to his brother Arc10 (and yes, it already fast) and more easy to generate power, far more powerful compare to Arc10...stiff and same moderate head heavy

    Thanks Issarakaya. Seems like Arc 8DX is powerful racket. Will give it a try.

    Hi everyone. Asked for ArcSaber 8DX review last week. But today I got my brand new 8DX
    Actually I was using Head Metallix 4000 and Head Airflow 5 before. Both these 2 Head's racquets has it's own characteristics. Metallix 4000 is meant for smashing but Airflow 5 is meant for control.
    But ArcSaber 8DX gave me the combination of both
    8DX is actually quite head heavy, more or less like ArcSaber Z-Slash. But with it's extra stiff shaft, it becomes Balanced and very fast respond of driving. In short, you'll never believe that this racquet can gives you the power of smashing as well as the accuracy of playing control.
    I strung it with BG66 with tension of 24lbs using ES5Pro stringing machine. It really gives you great experience more than you may imagine

    YEESSSSSS to the ArcSaber 8DX. Love it, love it, love it especially with NBG98 strung @ 26/28 #s. Tried all the high-end Yonex racquets but this is definitely my favourite

    Was it ARC8DX I saw Peter Gade used (and lost in SF) in Singapore Open?

    It is just it is not red, rather black in colour so making me suspect it is not ARC10.

    I bought a very new used Arc8DX from a nice BC gentleman. Agree with you, quite fast but not as fast as NS9k or NS9.9K. very powerful by comparison to NS9K/9.9K. Only setback is that the frame does not produce the repulsive characteristic of NS9K/9.9K.
    While it has a stiff shaft, it is not really that stiff, so the average players should be able to generate sufficient power from it.
