    Hello!

    I was using a nanospeed 300 before and I upgraded to an arcsaber 8dx thinking it will improve my game . I strung it with BG-66, 24 lbs. It was very responsive on drop shots and drives. The aspect of my game still needs a lot of improvement but needless to say the arcsaber 8dx gave me more control where I want the shuttle to go.

    I broke my first string BG-66 and I changed to zymax 62, 24x21 lbs. It has a better feel and smashing sound. However, after 3 hours of play I felt my arms were getting tired. It doesn't bother me though. I still love the racket overall.

    Retest:

    ArcSaber 8DX with BG66 @ 27Lbs

    Tested another 2.5 hours during the training. Again, same feeling, heavier than NS9900, making it more powerful for smashes, drive and lobbing. However, weak against double's smash (defence). It would be ideal for single player, looking for more powerful racquet and yet do not want to compromise the control or not suitable to use Armortec series.

    Definitely not for double (my preference) but for single player that seek to have high tension and control. If your wrist is not strong enough, you will get tired easily. I am getting to love my NS9900 more and more.

    Gameplay wise how does the Arcsaber 8dx compare to the Arcsaber 10? In general, which of these will allow more effortless clears and more maneuverability?

    I think arc8dx bring more "touch" since it is very stiff
    being more head heavy, the arc10 might be less manoeuvrable.

    Just broke my 3 months old 8DX 3UG5 yesterday. Getting used to it and like the feel of it.
    I am planning to get a replacement. But I am torn between 2U or 3U.
    I guess 2U will give more power but lacking in manoeuvrability.
    Anyone out there has both 2U and 3U? Advice and recommendation needed.

    From a minor clash with my partner's racket. I was swaying to get the 2U for the fact that the frame could be more solid than 3U. Just a precaution from such incident from happenning.
    After giving it a serious thought I would probably stay with 3U because I have already gotten used to it. The heavier 2U may simply be too difficult to wield and be a let down in defence.
    I have taken a pic of the broken 8DX. http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...=1#post1546913

    Hi, I wish to find a spare racquet for my nanospeed 9900, dunno if arcsaber 8dx will fit my style? Is it stiffer than nanospeed 9900? How about the control, power, maneuverability? I mainly use my wrist to generate power, jump smash a lot, and like to pressure opponents at the front...

    8DX is definitely not as fast as NS9900 nor is it as stiff (though pretty close I think). It probably wouldn't be a good spare since it would through off your timing.

    Hi, I just use 8DX as a spare last 2 weeks ago. This is super bad idea since NS9900 is a head light (i have 2x NS9900) and 8DX is real heavy. It is wise for you to get another NS9900 for spare or NS7700. Thanks.

    Go for another nanospeed or the Arc7 , it is even balanced-a bit head heavy, not too stiff, polyvalent

    how does 8dx perform compared to ti-10 3rd gen? In terms of smashing power, net play, swing speed and shaft stiffness?

    I would like to know too :-)
    I am looking for something slightly head heavier — not in the Armortec zone — and less stiff than my NS9900. I used to own the ArcSaber 10 but never got used to it. It always felt numb…
    So, I have narrowed my choice to the Ti-10 or the 8DX. I am an advanced player, and it would be nice to use the same racket for both singles and doubles. Most of the reviewers in France say the DX is not so stiff after all, though this might be a personal thing. Thanks in advance for the responses.

    Sounds like you should look for Ti-10 2nd generation . Personally I think Ti-10 III would be better than ARC8DX but whether it is such a big difference with NS9900? The shaft of ARC8DX does feel (too) flexible but makes it comprehensible why it has been mostly the netplayers of the doubles pairs who have chosen it, likewise how Lee Young Dae was using Bravesword 09 ...
    Now that I wrote that, the exception Carsten Mogensen came to mind but he actually switched back to NS9900
    Alternatively of course you could look at Panda Power Trinity 2 with 290+ bp and NS9900 frameshape http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...20#post1555120

    Have to note: soft feeling definitely contributed by BG65 at 10% too low and playing with former (youth) national team members can make you feel very mortal . One more test to perform ... put in repulsive string!

    And "flexible" = less than expected extra stiff

    Thanks for the reply demolidor. It won't be easy getting a 2nd Gen Ti-10, and even the Purple Ti-10 could be expensive if the custom officers decide to get curious…

    I use to play mostly singles. But some kilos and a shoulder/elbow injury later, I have discovered the joys of doubles. So I swapped the Armortec and ArcSaber for NS9900s and am happy but I can definitely feel a loss of power on my smashes/clears. Rarely but it's there. And since I still play singles now and then, I wanted something suitable for both. The 8DX seems to fit the bill but I'm itching to try the legendary Ti. With its longer shaft and a heavier head (than the NS9900), it may just be fine.
