    Looks like a cross between a (new) Nanospeed 8000 and a Cab 35 - not keen on it from what I've seen, but that's only a quarter of the frame (viewed over a computer).

    Pretty sure they won't have the full pic up til launch as it would deter the clones from coming out before the actual racket itself...

    yeah, I also think that's a reason...
    But a company as big a yonex also has marketing strategies, so they are creating a hype and mysterie, this stuff sells.

    I wasn't all that excited, untill i saw the words "smashing the smash limit" and untill i saw a little bit of the frame. You can really feel the effect of their strategy when you think about it.

    It will be the Arc Saber 10 with the head heaviness of AT-700.

    Currently Arc Saber 10 is having the head heaviness of level 8 while AT-700 is at level 10. Most probably they will adjust the head heaviness to match AT-700.

    How about the handle? Is it going to be long handle like the current Arc-10 or AT900 or is it going to short like the AT-700?
