Yonex Arcsaber 10 is available in a variety of weights and grip sizes. You will have both 3U and 2U versions for this model. On the other hand, you have the liberty to buy either G4 or G5 style grip.
This very racket that I’m reviewing here is the 3U and G5 grip one. As it has a G5 style grip, so you will love it if you are keen on a bigger grip.
This model is not 100 out of 100 for smashing. However, swinging this model is not a difficult task because of its stiff and thin shaft.
Regarding accuracy, I must say, it’s pretty accurate. Eventually, it gives you a good feeling during service shots.
While dominating the netplay requires a lot of practice and experience, at the same time, a perfect badminton racket can play a vital role to play that shot accurately. Your racket must offer reasonable control to achieve that, and this model does exactly that.
Due to the combination of high modulus graphite and cup-stack carbon nanotube, you are getting ample repulsion power and flexibility.
That means if you are an experienced player, then net-play with this model is as easy as pie for you.
Though this model won’t break your bank, still I believe the price could have been better than this.
In terms of quality and performance, no issue at all. I like the color combination too.
This one is slightly lean towards the defensive players. That being said, it’s an excellent weapon for aggressive players too.
As long as you are an intermediate or an advanced player, you are good to go. It’s not a good option for a beginner.
