    Default Arcsaber ZSlash Vs 8DX

    Hey guys, which of these two racquets do you think is better and why? I mostly smash and drive.

    Arcsaber Z Slash
    It is slightly head heavy and goes through the air quickly making your smashes faster
    the racket itself is longer then other rackets.
    but the down side is you need good timing to get a good smash or else you will miss the shuttle
    and the frame is smaller and you have to get used to the fact that it is smaller

    I think Z-Slash is more of an advance racket, only powerful when your timing must be spot-on all the time during real game. It not a friendly/forgiving type of racket, unless all you do is just smash, smash... Otherwise Arc8dx is better as it has good smash power and great control/defense as well. No timing issues, a great racket for all around type of player.

    On the other hand, I believe the Arc 8-DX is better, the frame of the Z-Slash is more fragile and the last one I had cracked after a powerful jump smash of mine. The Arc 8-DX is also more affordable and is also a bit head heavy, excellent control and power without the fragile frame of the Z-Slash.

    Yeah, I'll stick to my 8DX. Tried the Z-slash again not as good.

    For those that are used to an oval head racket, the adjustment is minimal with the ZSlash. I compared Arc10 vs Z and prefer the Z as its more powerful in smashing, also defence is very good due to its ability to cut thru air faster.

    Fragile doesn't mean it is worse... We are not going to do any cross sword in badminton. It fact it's advanced-level racket compare to the 8DX. Hehe it's just my opinion...

    Isn't the 8 DX is also a advanced racket?

    oh... I read an article which states that many world class badminton players use the Arc 7 which is about the same "class" as the Arc 8 DX...

    so since the world class players use it, is it considered a advanced level racket?

    both are top end rackets... there are professional players that use all sorts of range of rackets.. just personal preference
