    The Arc9FL feels better and have a nice, comfortable hold to it compare to the Arc3FL. The shorter handle and longer shaft also works better for me as compared to the older Arc9.

    took one out for demo from Synergy earlier in the week. Janet fell in love with it. and my wallet is now lighter than before!!

    AK pimped it up with some grommet strip. i strung it with yellow BG66UM@25lbs on a ES5Pro and add yellow RKEP grip it looks rather stunning.

    will try it out tonight.

    played with it tonight.

    a totally different beast than the regular ARC9. balance and weight are both lighter and has a faster swing. the old ARC9 being heavier has more power, the 9FL being lighter needs faster and more relaxed technique to proper the shuttle properly. however, once one get the timing, it is actually quite fun. response and feel at medium power is very nice. repulsion is similarly good at those speed.

    when pushed with more force, it starts to struggle a little and get overpowered. it is very happy at medium to medium high power.

    drive is a breeze with the faster swing speed. shaft is pretty lively and responsive. vibration is well controlled and feedback/feel is good. as a result, it is also pretty good with net shots.

    overall, i think the ARC9FL is a good racket for wristy player or something who prefer fast driving game at medium-high power level.

    Thanks for the review.

    So would you consider this racket for guys who are more control players rather than heavy-hitters? You know, despite the fact that it's being marketed as a racket for females and the pink with diamonds color theme.

    I have a question. Which U version were you comparing to because both ARC9 in 2U/3U and for ARC9FL 3U/4U respectfully.

    However from what I know from players who tried both ARC9 and ARC9FL in 3U, there is barely a noticable difference.

    If the comparision was based on different U's, then would be differences.

    Anyone know the availability of this racket (4U) in Taiwan? I'm planning on a trip there next month. Just wondering if the Taiwanese yonex stores would carry these, as the racket is manufactured in Japan.

    I'm thinking of picking this up for my wife. She's using one of my old rackets and I want her to have her own racket (not a hand me down). She's more of between beginner and intermediate. And it's lightweight so that might help her. Probably get the 4UG5 version.

    THE arc 9fl is available in Taiwan, but not in all store

    Most I saw was 4U version, but I got both 3U and 4U version.

    Sweet. Thanks! I'm fine with the 4U version. I'll be in the Taipei area for a month, so I'll try to look around for it. Do you happen to know any reputable/legitimate badminton stores near there?

    Saw this at my local Sports Expert (Bayshore location) for $159.99 and as a RA member, 20% off on top of that... Seems like a good deal for any ladies in the Ottawa region :P

    The Arc9FL is going for CDN$210 at Tad's Sporting Goods in Vancouver. But it's only 3UG4. Apparantly they don't get 4U. Guess I'll have to order through shuttlehouse or something.

    No Sport Experts. There is a Sport Chek but I don't think they carry high end badminton rackets. I can probably get it with no tax. Just compared it with mybadmintonstore US$188 + shipping. So it's about the same anyways. But they don't have 4U as well.

    Was looking for a 4UG5 for my wife as she's petite. And I think the lighter the racket...the better it would be for her.

    Just checked shuttlehouse. They have the 4UG5 but damn...it comes out to CDN$220 (after discount of 22%) + shipping. If I really want it...I need to buy a whole lot of stuff to get a better discount and make it worthwhile.
