I love this racket!! It is very good for offensive playing, it has lots of power, control and precision. This is a very lightweight racket, the colors are very cool. This is probably one of the best in the Arc Saber series, placing second in comparison with the Arc Saber Z-Slash, which I also have in my collection. This is a great racket, probably most suitable for intermediate players. I usually use this racket for playing doubles, I love to cover the back, because of my powerful hits, it's pretty much impossible for me to hit it lightly. This racket has great control, it's very precise. The nice one-piece frame is very aerodynamic and the Arcsaber 8-DX is a great overall racket, but I think the price is a bit too high.

The best of Yonex Arc series
February 4, 2010
from Boston, MA United States
I have tried ALL of the high-end Yonex ArcSaber series rackets (5,7,8dx,9,10,z-slash) and other off-brand saber rackets, and the Arc 8DX is by far the best. The feel of the racket is like my old AT-700. Strung it at 28# with BG-66. Full of power, crisp and excellent control.
