Positioned at the sides of the racket frame, this revolutionary technology absorbs and harnesses energy from the shuttles impact to provide the player with unparalleled feel during every shot. This energy is then transferred into a return of supreme strength and pinpoint accuracy.

5 of 5 Performance: A Good Overall Racquet 9/10 October 6, 2011
Reviewer: eXowneon from San Francisco, United States  
2UG4 Tested with:
Yonex Nanogy98, 28lbs

Very great control over drops and direction due to its enlarged sweetspot and power repulsion.

Gets net kills done altho swinging slower than NS / AT

Bad smashes compared to Ti-10 and AT700. Make it head heavier by adding lead tapes.

Lack of bouncing makes blocking not as good especially on very passive blocks.

Unlike NS/AT, you will feel the birdie without the pain. If I'm to use this for 4 hours of singles my arm won't feel as tired as if I use NS9K.

Overall a great racquet for doubles. Doesn't beat NS9K or AT700 in singles for a casual player. Check Yonex topics for a list of what players use in a tournament.

Results without adding lead tape:
Control: 9.5/10
Power: 7.5/10
Defense: 8/10  
Maneuverability: 9/10

Results after adding lead tape:
Control: 9/10    
Power: 9/10
Defense: 7.5/10
Maneuverability: 9/10

Experience may vary depending on the player, tension and string you use.

5 of 5 Sweet Racket March 5, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Hayward,CA  
I currently have my ARC10 3U at 24 pounds with nannoGy-95 strings. I also own the AT500, NS8000, and ARC7. All i can say is that i have a faster and more controlled smash then any of my other rackets. Clears with this racket doesn't take much effort for me, but when it comes to drops, i wouldn't say this racket can compare to my NS8000 or ARC7. Overall i feel that this racket is most fitted for ME. If your the type that likes to play hard and kill the birdie, then i would highly recommend this racket. Great racket for singles btw.

5 of 5 very Ear-Catching May 5, 2008
Reviewer: JOHN LU from RICHARDSON,TX United States  
The majority of the racquet is RED, but the outside rim of the frame is WHITE.
Therefore, if people looks at it from the front, it is a RED racquet, but if someone looks at it from the side, it is a white racquet with red shaft.

Structural Design:
To me, it is a reborn of the popular Armortec 800 Offensive with high-tech material which can sustain crazy smashes.    A flex-stiff shaft generates catapult effect which makes lob & drive easy.

In Action:
Strung with BG68 TI  at 24 pounds.
very easy to move around  (even-balanced) and allows people to flex his wrist to add more power to the smash Crisp and loud "POP" sound during smash and drive is very Ear-Catching.
