    Today, i when to sport expert to buy some shuttlecock ( is 20% off for everything in SE Today ) and after getting the shuttlecock i when to check the racket and i found this ArcSaber 100 thats everyone talks about.Well since is 20% off at everything, i bought the racket as well. Then i start walking back to YMCA and i think about it, is the racket worth it? cuz none of my friend had one, so i have zero information about the racket (except the paint job was amazing ).

    Can anyone gimme a review For ArcSaber 100?

    Cuz if is not that great, i might just return it.

    From friends including myself, the ARC100LTD does feel a wii bit different.

    Gameplay wise, it's the two rackets play identically.

    The question is more like 20% from what price? SE (Sports Expert) normally sells at the high side.

    hahaha i see
    false sales ad heh
    i guess as long as its priced at Arc7 range then its not a rip off
    if i were to choose Arc7 and Arc100 at the same price, i would go for Arc100

    I would say that is a reasonable price. This is before or after tax?

    MSRP is $250 so it's a good price for a CD version.

    Arcsaber 100 is different from Arcsaber 7... I have AS100 and i have also tried AS7 from my friend, they do have different areas, although major majority of people think it's reprinted version of AS7, but AS100 feels better than AS7, (in my personal view, that is)

    I'm a ARCSABER fan. I dont know the exchange rate from china to canada, our price is ¥1,100(after 20% dis). You may keep your 100. It's a good racket for me. I have 10 and 7. 100 is stiffer than 7.

    Strange... shops here tell customers that the ArcSaber100 is an ArcSaber10 equivalent. Now I'm confused????
