    I don't know about the balance, but I heard from a store owner in Taiwan that it's going to be stiffer than the Arc 10.

    Hmm, I would like it to be head heavy... maybe between the at900 T and 900 P!
    Not a single arcsaber felt good in my hands, because I only play with head heavy rackets. Can't stand them being light, ugh :p

    I will definately try it if it's head heavy!

    IMO, it's not going to be head heavy.
    From the ads, it is a speedy racket.(though AT700 was speedy in the ads as well)
    To guess from the ads, it will be a ARC model of NS9900.

    Have you guys tried the ARC10?

    IMO, the ARC10 feels much better then the AT900P. Yonex says that the ARC10 an even balance racket, but it feels more head heavy then even balance.

    I tried it for 3 minutes once. Didn't like the feeling at all.
    Maybe it was his string tension (very very low, and i play with a rather higher tension) but It just wasn't a good extention of my arm =(

    so I'm really hoping it will feel like the armortec series. maybe at 500 feeling?

    My bad.. I should maybe have made it clearer ,that I was joking...

    But it will most probably be a huge rip-off, anyway (if you do not buy it at factory pricing) :)

    haha, sorry! silly me, I should have known :p

    English is not my main language ;)

    I buy my rackets usually 30€ cheaper than shops, is that factory pricing?
    like the at900T was 180€ but I bought it for 148€...

    Just happened to see a post in chinese forum about Arcsaber Z. :cool:

    They are open for reservation of this racket. The price inclusive delivering in China is RMB 950 but is TW version. :D:D Lol, it is cheaper than TW NS9900 and Arc 10.

    Standby your cash for SP version... :p:p
