Does your Arcsaber chip easily?
Somehow, my paintwork from my arcsaber chips really easily by mishits How about everyone else's.
Note: It's an arcsaber 10

First, is it real? I haven't had any problems with mine.

i have not seen any chip on mishits on mine.
i only get chips from clashing rackets. any rackets will chip from clashing though.

Well its UK coded and I had it checked on the serial number thread and apparently its genuine. But tbh, I woulda expected the arcsaber 10 to be more stiff, its not very stiff.

ARC10 is not very stiff. only medium stiff. the ARC10 is a very good all-around racket. not too stiff, not too heavy, not too fast, very well balanced and mostly quite forgiving.
if you want more stiffness and power, you need to look elsewhere.

I like it, got a while to get used to but it's great Makes a change to the extra-stiff racquet I got but I get more control with this racquet. But back to the topic, yeah my arcsaber 10 chips quite easily, got a few on the frame already, luckily I think it's only paint work. Might post a few pictures up.

Might have just been a bad curing job on the paint.

On the note of this topic is noticed these hairline cracks on the T-Joint of my arcsaber:
Should I be worried about it or is it just the paint cracking
I cant really feel it though.

Those just look like scratches in the paint... maybe from the stringing?

looks ok for me, not like a crack.........and about misshit i never seen any paint chip at mine

my Z-slash chipped pretty easily, the pint is not the most durable thing

From the first picture you posted, my Arc7 suffered that issue too but mine had more hairline cracks around the area and it spreaded down and around. It was eventually replaced by Yonex Canada as that was defective.

Matt, but did you still have warranty on that racquet? Because mine was produced in 2008 :O

i have an arc10 as well, no paint chips in it at all, and early on when i first had it, i mishit a lot
the at900t i have is another story, that paint chips so easily...

Well if it gets worse maybe I'll send it off to Yonex then. Playable in the meantime though, but still it chips easily for some reason. Poor paintjob most likely.
PS How did you send it off Matt?
