    Perhaps, perhaps the 8DX has the smaller compact head of the Z Slash.

    Although I question Yonex's intention in this. They are almost too similar in overall specifications now. Only difference I can notice is that the 8DX has a higher warrantied string tension maximum.

    Racquet repaint anyone? Sounds familiar........

    I'm praying that it's a less head-heavy version of the arc10. I've always felt that the arc10 was on the head-heavy side of its self-proclaimed "Even Balance" weighting.

    The Arc10 isn't head heavy! Try swinging an Armortec for a few hours and let us know what your Deltoids think.

    Jaiyen, the ZS head is pretty unique. I compared it to a guys Mp99 last night actually and they're not similar. There's not a lot in it with any of the rackets, but a small change makes a big difference.

    Someone with a ZS needs to get a DX and make a real comparison!

    Who's first!?

    The Arc 10 is head-heavy for an Even-Balanced racquet. Armortecs are labeled "Head Heavy" so that's expected. But the Arcsaber seriers are all labeled "Even-Balance". Relative to the term "Even-Balance," the Arc 10 is head-heavy.

    actually, we should send a DX to dink, he's reviewed a Z-Slash already, right?

    I have a feeling that Matt will be one of the first to test the Arc8DX as he has the whole Arcsaber range.
    What is the retail price @ the moment ?

    Lol!! Maybe =P

    As for the Arc Saber 8, don't worry about the picture from Badminton Alley, the head shape looks narrow because of the way it is stringed. The head shape not like Z, follow the rest of the Arc Sabers.

    USD187 is the expected price for a JP, which is not too bad all things considered.

    That's why he said "the rest of the arcsaber" which implies all others except for the one stated--in this case, all others but the ArcZS

    Yes I am. Because someone challenged me when I said that I find the arc10 to be a little head-heavy and said that compared to Armortecs, the Arc10 isn't really. I *know* that Armortecs are head heavier than the arc10. But they're supposed to be because they have "head-heavy" written right on the racquet. I think that for a racquet that has "even-balance" as one of its specs, the arc 10 is on the head-heavy end. All I said was that I hope the Arc 8 is on the head-lighter end of "even-balance". It's not really semantics more as understanding the terminology we use when evaluating whether or not a racquet is the right fit.
