    It's slightly head-heavy...I was trying to think of a racket to compare it with, but remembered you saying that it would be your first racket >_>. It's just slightly head-heavy, so if you're a slightly angry person...you should be fine :P

    Haha awesome, before I used a AT 500 that was my cusion's but then he broke it lool. So I used my friends Power Boss Woven 9. So I think I'm fine . My smashes need work lol, I'm one of those people who look very friendly but I change when I get into a game >=]

    Hey Ants... Are you talking about the ARC 100? I believe the release date is coming soon (or maybe even released at the moment). May not invest in this one because you have to buy the whole set that include the 6 racquet bag. Not too big on the limited edition of Yonex because they don't really limit the production enough to make it worthwhile....

    Unless.... there is something else I don't know about...

    Arc 100 LTD is NOT a new racket addition for Yonex, and it is already available in markets worldwide. Also, Arc 100 you can just buy the racket itself, no need to but the whole set (i.e the bag, the shirt, etc.)
    I don't think Ants is awaiting THAT racket.....

    Hopefully a new AT series will be timely. AT1000 perhaps?
    Can only wait.......

    Ants already has Arc100, he's even selling some extras here in the forum. Besides, Arc100 is just Arc7 with new paint, right?

    OK guys, I've read this thread from the beginning.

    I've already had an Arc 8DX in my hand and am due to get a demo in a few weeks. It's due to arrive in UK end of March.

    8DX is same head shape as Arc10. It has the same thinner head of Z Slash and also seems to mimic Z Slash in terms of length of shaft.

    Whilst it feels marginally lighter than Arc10, at this stage it's difficult to gauge how it will play.

    Personally, I'm hoping for the same smash benefits as Z Slash without the same mistiming issues.

    I'm old enough to remember the original Carbonex 8DX. It was a major improvement on the superb Carbonex 8 with slightly slimmer shaft.

    I'm going to do a written and video review on this racket so hopefully I'll have the racket in time to launch my review first week in April.

    Arc 100 Special Edition is basically an Arc 7 with a paint job. And that's what Yonex have stated to me. It hasn't received any special treatment to make it superior in any way.

    I also hear there is a new AT in testing. It was potentially due for launch at All Englands now but there were problems in testing and therefore it will not be released probably until Japan Open in my opinion.

    Watch this space for more reviews.

    thanks for the little review paul.
    Just wished there was more info lol
    from your testing so far... is there anything else you could say about the 8dx in comparison with the 10?

    Anyone who's a hard hitter, semi-aggresive, likes to jump-smash and uses a lot of wrist owes it to himself/herself to give the Arc 8DX a try. Had a blast again last night. You can enjoy the sport to its fullest if you have the right equipment, IMHO.

    Looks like Mogensen has switched back to NS9900 for now and instead it's Lars Paaske using Arc8DX at the AE2010 ...

    Great evidence, my dear Watson.
    I've used all 3 and the ArcSabre 8DX is my choice. Second is the A900P.
