    Sorry for my ignorance!


    When they (yonex) said it will be launched on the 19th of September will it be available already in Singapore by that time?

    I don't think so, may be yonex will just distribute to those shops on 19th of September.:crying: Cause probably yonex don't want shops to be selling this racket before 19th.;)
    P.S.All Above is just personal opinion.:cool:

    Local Distrubutor says that they will be available for sale on the 19th. I wouldn't be surprised if judging from the LiNings, that it will be the most expensive Yonex ever.

    Hi Easy Tiger,
    Which distributor did you ask? I live in Melbourne, I'm interested to get one of these... Still thinking about getting it from shuttle house japan. The price is almost the same as Arc Saber 10 and NS 9900 in Japan

    It probably would be cheaper to just directly import it from Mybadmintonstore rather than wait for the distributors in Australia. I wonder if the racquet is even balance to headlight similar to the NS9900.

    On a side note I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out similar to this (because of the colour scheme and the "subtitle"):

    No wonder this power ranger is so strong. He's using the Yonex Arcsaber Z Slash!

    The black / red / white colour scheme would have worked. But they HAD to add in yellow! Now it really does look like a power ranger's weapon.

    Oh well.. at least it does pack a punch in terms of power :)

    If they made the yellow part blue, it'd be the sexiest thing ever.

    I wonder if Yonex hates blue?

    :rolleyes:

    And I thought my joke about the relation of the racquet to Power Rangers Zeo was bad enough....

    By the way some if not most of the folks at AT700.com are threatening to not buy the racquet amidst the hype about the smashing prowess.

    Whoa, très ugly! Definite saltpeter to my enthusiam. I'll pass and stick to my NS9.9K.

    No wonder they've been trying to keep this image secret until the official reveal date! Time to include color-blindness test as a prerequisite for their design team.

    Somebody please tell me that the actual racket looks better than this.
