Yonex ArcSaber 100 Limited & ArcSaber 8DX (SP versions)
I ordered the Arc100 Ltd very late and was surprised to even get it at all. Wasn't even sure they may come out an SP version. So this is a pleasant surprise when I got a call it was ready for collection. I was also told that this particular shop was the first place to received it and they were allocated only 3 pieces. Well, I got the first piece. Got it strung with BG66, the recommended string, at 30 lbs. This is in 3UG5 and overall weight is 105 gms strung and with Yonex black towel grip.
The bag was available too but the quality was a bit of a letdown. I passed on it which make it more compelling for me to take the Arc8DX as well as it came with the same shipment.
This is one gorgeous racquet. One of the nicest racquets I own. The Arc8DX is nice but not as pretty as the Arc100.
A few pictures for potential buyers to browse .

This is also in 3UG5 strung with JP strings BG68Ti at 30 lbs. Overall weight strung with Yonex black towel grip is 107 gms.
Like the Arc100 it is even balance but this has the Ultra PEF feature. Both are High Modulus Graphite with CS Carbon Nanotube.

Do you intend to play or just keep these racquets?
I would keep the LTD for a year or two before deciding to continue to keep or play.

Well the 8DX is nothing special but the 100 ltd.... I've also got one on order but I don't think I'll play with it. I prefer stiffer rackets but just got it because of the 100th anniversary.

Well since it's SP, just use them. For me, I got the JP and that will be my collector racket. I am also collecting one CD and getting one more or more to use since I use G4. JP only comes in G5.

I want one now....the 8DX that is.

100 and LTD, I will keep it SP or JP. Strung or un-strung.
At least to keep it in tiptop condition for as long as possible.

Didn't realize there's SP version of Arc100. Wonder how limited it is ?

nice racket, any coding marked on the racket? eg. xxxx/5000

wow..how much did u spend just for these 2 rackets?
is that factory strung?

Both racquets came dry. Strings were included in the price and I could select any string I want including the JP imported strings. A pity they did not have the BG66 Maxima .
02-25-2010, 08:51 PM #14
yeah, if include the bg-66 maxima, it would be more special with the sound and all
so does that mean that it's factory strung? Aren't it loses tension fast?

Got the phone call, went to the shop, saw the Arc 100 took it. Saw the bag (SP version), thought about it and passed. Pricey and quality is disappointing. My Li-Ning, Gosen, Adidas and Victor bags are much better anytime. Saw the Arc8DX on the rack. Since I am not getting the bag now and I am planning to get the Arc8 anyway, add it in the checkout cart.

Since they are sitting pretty, I better don't disturb them and let them be !
I am actually more keen on the 8DX because the specs very similar to the Z-Slash and it is warrantied to 26lbs. The Arc100's specs not as interesting as it is based on the Arc7 but that one is definitely a collector's item !
You have so many new toys to play with these few days !!! Does your collection include Victor also ?
