My new ArcSaber z-slash! Review
First of all im from Quebec,Canada so my english is like not perfect ..
Before doing a review let me describe myself:
-Im a intermediate-advanced offensive player who mosty play single and few double
Today, I just bought my new Arcsaber z-slash 3U/3G Code:CD with Bg80 at 26lbs. Before I was playing with my old Muscle Power 55 2U/3G+ nbg95 22lbs and it was doing good for me but after all the reviews i saw on the slash , i knew this raquet was for me. So today i had give a try too my new baby! First impression were: The slash feels like a bit headheavy with medium/stiff shaft. The paint job is for me really nice with yellow string and grip (picture as proof later ) . I recieved alot of good comments on it too !
Game time now. Ive I start with some clear and i notice how effortless it was overhead, backhand and forehand. I immediately notice how easy it was too swing through the air with this raquet.The time too smash now.. wow speachless! i was smiling like a little boy on court! My smash were soo much more powerfulll and surprisingly really precise. The sound is awsome too, probly due to 26lbs bg80. Ive played for like 3 hours and the more i played, more i was constant on my shots! For defence, compare to my friend ns9900 it was a bit slow but for an offensive raquet it was doing very well ! like 2 time better than my MP 55 lol ..
let me give you my personal ratting chart:
Pro: amazing power , control, style
Cons: little lack in defence and the $$$
Here's some quick pictures i took with my phone

Well today ,ive play for like 2 hours and my string snaped! That was the first time it happen to me ! is this normal after 4 hour of use? Bg80 is supposed to be ok on durability no?

Wich string should i use next time? I love the touch and power of Bg80 .. Bg65, Bg65ti , NBG95 or go again with bg80 ?
I really don't know.. Im a student at university and i dont wanna spend like 25$ each week for string!

if you want something really durable, NBG95's. Took me a long time to snap them!

You could hit golf balls with Zymax 70 and not break it, and it's VERY powerful for me.
On a side-note, I like the talismanic date: 09/09/09.
