ArcSaber 8 DX
Just saw this new Yonex Arcsaber 8 DX racket on Shuttle-house, and I thought the racket looks really nice. Kind of similar to the Armortec 900 Power in design, but still looks pretty good. Looks like it won't be available until March of 2010, but heads up for those who are Arcsaber fans.

Oh my, it looks pretty! Wonder how much it will cost, hopefully its below the converted price (~257 USD) because the cost of living is much higher in Japan...

I'm pretty sure at 23,100 Yen, shuttle-house will give you 20 -22% discount. So you're looking at $40 less on the retail price.
I just think that the racket is so pretty. They should had use that design for the Z Slash instead.

The looks seems average to me but the increment in stringing limits really caught my attn.

Woah! This is a stunner! Reminds me of the "red herring picture" of the Arc 10 that ants gave us here. I see it also has the Z string pattern viz. four singles at the top.
Can anybody translate the kanji and tell us the stiffness and balance?

I sense that Yonex is being threathened by the increasingly high tension warranty limits of other racquet producers that may topple over it soon.

Hehe - don't know how seriously to take that chart, according to which the Z is "slightly head heavy" (which I think is bollox: mine is >300 dry!).
Nice to see an Arc with decent stiffness, though, but let's see how well it holds; I got rid of my 10 because the stiffness gradually diminished over the course of a year or so...

the design sure looks a lot less flashy than the other top end Arc Saber rackets (ie. Z, 10, 9) and indeed it looks quite good.

woah.. the shaft design looks similar to the ns9900. awesome. what does the DX stands anyway?

DX is the face your opponents will make when you play them with it.
01-27-2010, 01:29 AM #12
So from what I can see... it's going to be a slightly stiffer, lower cost version of the Arc10?

it stands for......DELUXE :P

DX actually stands for Dynamic Extreme

For me, I should be able to get it for somewhere around $200 USD and below for the JP.

Looks cool and laidback! However, the DX alone means it must be a whopper!
