    Hmmm kind of depends what sort of a player you are... some people are more wristy and some use the whole arm for their swinging action. But anyways I guess you've got the right idea, try before you buy. Good luck. =)

    Tried all three, liked the 8DX most, bought it. Played a competition meeting and training since, pain is gone and it plays really really well. Might also be the smaller grip I chose, or a combination of both.

    I've gone back to the Armortec 900P after using the 8DX since it's debut. I need the stiff flex, not the 8DX's extra stiff. Maybe it's the age thing Loved the 8DX for what it's worth.

    hm can you elaborate on "the age thing" haha.. so i am assuming 8dx is pretty much a offensive racquet? (i.e.: good for doubles or singles?)

    Really like the Arcsaber 8DX, gave me more power and control with its extra stiff shaft Surprisingly durable too, it's taken some hard mishits from me with only a couple pieces of paint missing, while their combined surface area is only a little smaller than the size of a grain of rice It also killed a black knight ghost in a clash (not much of a feat, I know ) without a single paint chip.

    Hi
    Just brought a 8dx and will receive it factory strung, as from the posts on this thread,will be arriving with only 20-22 of tension. Could everyone post there favourite strings and tensions for this racket,will give me a ruff guess of what I might go for

    Cheers

    when i used the 3u sp 8dx, i found the shaft to not be too stiff, about the same as my at900p. a lot of fun to use but it felt a bit numb to me when using the same string setup i usually use.

    for a moderate tension, nbg98 at 24x26 was fun

    Just got my second 8dx today, I like it so much that I want one for back up. Funnily the shop that sold me both rackets said there is not much demand for this racket. This thread also has no new post since march. I find 8dx extremely good for double. And I like it even more than voltric 80 which I find more useful as a single racket. I have a feeling that 8dx sells more in Europe than in Asia. But that might be statistically incorrect as what I observe is only the local trend where I live where I see more english player wield this racket than the asian player. Can any bcers in Asia comment?

    I was using the 8DX before switching to LCW's A900P, and then on to VT80, and before the 8DX I was using A900P. Overall I love the VT80 the most.

    From your three armortecs and voltrics, it sounds like u enjoy head heavy and stiff racket. 8dx is even balance and extra stiff, does it not feel strange to u?

    I like the extra stiffness for a while, but it was very unforgiving on the shoulder and elbow. Love to smash, that's why I favor the head heaviness. The VT80 has everything and more.

    I am using both Arc8DX first then moved to VT-80. Both are excellent racket. It is just 8DX a bit heavier and feel more suitable for doubles specialist. 8DX generally generate much more power for backhand. In fact gives you power to smash if you are not that smasher helps you though. Great for defense and durable too. Very excellent control for drive shot. My ideal preference with the Arc8DX would be BG66 and 25lbs string. Enjoy!

    This racket is head heavy, extra stiff and perfect for powerful smash. Great control for drive. Ideal preference to go with this racket is BG66 with 25lbs. If you are not that smasher ^^, this racket could help you with that. Generate power becasue the head heavy. Very good for backhand clear.
