    I didn't try the Babo yet but it feels like it's lighter than Arc7 :p
    I only use Babo & Yoyo :D

    For once listen to LD_rules, keep the ''BABs'' & ''YOs'' for later and get your hands on that VICTOR SW 35:D:D:D!

    It was 27lbs using nbg98. After a month i reduce to 25lbs using bg80. The first stringer does not doing his job properly coz the tension was not tight and the string can easily move around so i decided to restring to my previous stringer using yonex string machine.

    Thanks. Probably just a one-time coincidence:(;).

    I think if he's happy with 8DX then there's no reason alienating from it:).

    I already bought ARC10PG :) and still waiting for the ARC8DX warranty from my local shop :) i hope i'l get back sooner or later. Moral of the story, if u bought an expensive racket, dont clash! Shuttle came to u and partner 50-50, dont take it and avoid! LOL!

    Haha nice moral :)

    If I would play against you I know where to throw the shuttle :p
    Did you buy Arc10PG :
    - because you love PG ??
    - because you were curious to try a racquet everyone talk about ??
    - because it's the latest one ??
    :p:p:p:p:p:p

    Haha! I rather give u points than clashing the racket, lesson learned. Its bcoz arc10 is higher end than 8dx. I always wanted to try this arc10 and right on the time they came out with this players series racket and a stunning different look from the previous. Why not give a try and suprisingly the racket suits my play. And still taming the racket. Not to say i like PG but he is good too tho. I like LCW play style. Why i dont buy AT900P coz its pretty heavy for me and i guess im in the family of arcsaber.

    I see :)

    Actually I think the main difference between Arc10 & Arc8DX is the stiffness, the 8DX being "very stiff" instead of "stiff" for the 10..and also 8dx may be less head-heavy than 10..

    I admit the PG painjob looks awesome :)
    I also heard there will be an Arc008 TH or something like that..hehe..
    "Buying my favourite player's special series racquet" might be added to the reason why one buy a new toy :p:):D

    Yeahh u go that one good. Everyone has a reason to buy. Yeah i think there gonna have arc008 TH but i heard it was made in taiwan?? Anyone can clear this? I think u can check this at the yonex player series thread. But looking at the arc10 with a pearl white and stunning gold add with lil silver? Nothing i cud ask more!! Simply superb. Its just this time i need to really extra extra care. And, if u have a crack or clash and claiming for warranty, YY will replace it to the orginal red one. Hehhee. So beware to all rich rackets out there!!

    I break my high Yonex end all he time from tension. But replace it with brand new one for only 20$. The kool thing is that I usually trade it in for an upgrade or downgrade with a little bit of cash :)
