    Nobody has tried the 2u yet. It could give a lot more power from the head heaviness. The poor quality of the new grip sounds very shabby. =/

    I played with it earlier today and I thought it was great. It has both "Power and Control" Quoted from Kim Dong Moon. Kim says it is the Nanospeed 8000 and the Armortec 800O put together. I would have to agree.

    Interesting review which differs from Ants. He said the Arc10 was stiffer but you feel that is is less stiff!


    In another post, you mentioned you got it for $260. How come it cost $298?? :eek:

    May be, I say may be...

    Arc 10 = S$260.00
    Stringing = S$14.00
    Overgrip = S$4.50
    Total = S$278.50
    GST = s$19.50
    G-Total = S$298/-

    Thanks.

    Yup, but... if it is a new racket, keep it at 25 x 25 for the time being, until you are willing to forgo your warranty.....:D

    Thanks.

    You obviously don't know what "contradicted" means.

    The black was a full-spec prototype sans the cosmetics.
    Sort of like a car being road-tested... without the final paint job :p

    You're welcome to have a game with it.
    Just remember to bring along SGD 298 :D
