    BG 66 medium feel, 30lbs, 3U G5.
    the control is very good, i can put my drop shot and especially back hand drop shot so smooth....:):)

    Thanks Yonex.

    I replaced the string recently with BG80 and the smashing power deteriorated.

    Will be changing back to BG66 again.

    Thanks.

    Well..got an Arc10 as a surprise presents from my friends+ special someone ;)

    Arc10, 3U G3
    String BG-80 25lbs


    Tried it last night. Well, like most people say bout this masterpiece...control was excellent...and when people say bout it being light...i dont really think so :)...the feeling was just nice. Dropshots, Slice, Crosscourts can be done easily

    As for power, got decent power, strung at 25lbs using BG-80, but i still find the string to be kinda slack for me thus i can feel abit of power is lost. Will try to string it at a tighter tension somewhere around this week. :)

    Till Then :D

    Would you guys say this racket has the same pop as the original 3u Ti-10? I'm trying to see if this is the same kind of head-heavy piece of equipment I've been using for the last few years.

    I recommend that you use BG 66 string at 29-30lbs. you will find that the control is getting better, and the smash wow.... (try using whipping technique when smashing....):D:D

    You know i recommend this racket to all type of players. they will find that this racket is unique, excellent, so easy to use. something that make me love this babe more is it doesnt hurt my arm. i smash more and more but i dont hurt my arm anymore like before..... believe me...

    i think arc10 is a more wristy racquet. some might say it is good for both wrist and arm player, which i agree, but it should come out more power with correct technique.

    I found the attached chart from a Chinese badminton website ( hope they dont mind ), that shows yonex offical recommendation for different lever player.( at the bottom of the chart ) The arc10 is most recommended for advanced or professional male player, which has double circles, and i believe an advanced player should be a wrist player. Correct me if i am wrong.

    Hi WWK207,

    Can I have the website where you download the chart?

    If it is not convenient to post here, maybe you can PM me.

    I just want to surf for more information.

    Thanks.

    Please could someone translate the japanese/chinese bit, coz otherwise this is useless for people who don't read japanese/chinese.
    Looking forward to understand...

    Thanks

    ?

    so you think rackets like at900p or 700 are for players who use arm power, and have no wrist technique skillzz.

    Surely lin dan, lcw, etc have proper technique, so why dont they use AS10 ? :confused:

    I`m a beginner, who uses mainly armpower,and has weak wrist technique, so should I go for AT700 which is used by most top players :eek:

    If the translation is correct,it would mean;
    At900t is fine for intermediate female but not intermediate male .???
