    Just surprised to read you find it headheavy(/heavier than VT80?)? Or do you have a 4U VT80 ...

    Ofcourse you could always post some digits here: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...d-Post-1-First!

    I am using 3U/G4 for my Arc8DX and 3U/G5 for VT-80. Based on the yonex literature, it should be the same weight (85-89.9 g) though, but perhaps because of the extra stiffness that Arc8DX have then feel a bit head heavier than VT-80. But I could be wrong, as I did not really weight them just based on a personal feeling.... I bought it from the only local shop in my town where I live that supply Yonex equipment and have the coded AS for Australia I guess. It was AU$250 comes with a BG 65 string and a grip. Hopefully that is genuine/original ^^v

    I am using 3U/4G for 8DX and 3U/5G for VT-80. Based on the Yonex literature, both actually have the same weight (85-89.9g), but perhaps because the extra stiffness that 8DX have rather than VT-80 and VT-80 also have the thinnest shaft and newer technology, then I felt that 8DX is head heavier than VT-80. However, I could be wrong, and please do correct me if I am wrong and my judgment was based on my personal feeling about the rackets..... I bought it at the only sport store that supply Yonex racket in the town where I live, and it was AU$250 comes with a bag, a BG-65 string, and a grip. It was coded AS for Australia I guess and hope that is genuine ^^v

    Just played with my JP coded 8DX last Friday for the first time in a long time, and it was amazing!!! So much power from the x-stiff shaft.

    Agree with most of the posts in this thread. The 8DX imo, is the best racquet yonex has made in the last 10 years. I've been looking for a racquet to replace my the Ti-10 and MP100 for a long time. I love the forgiveness of the Ti-10 with it's huge sweetspot and the crispness, balance, power and solidness of the MP100 but both have their drawbacks. Having tried many racquets before, the 8DX is what I have been looking for, a combination of both, except there is a very slight reduction in power.

    It really has everything, a brilliant all rounder.

    For me,

    stiffness mx80>arcs8x
    balance mx80=arcs8x

    but mx80 is faster due to victor's frame.

    extra stiff and can take high tension. in general a great make. but it is on great discount lately.

    sunrise and shuttle house seems to be doing stock clearance on it. why arcs8dx, not others?

    Because it will be discontinued and not popular so no price increase

    Some say it is being part replaced by the Arc11.

    I think if they keep the ArcSaber series alive, they may bring out a replacement for the 8DX.
