The new ARCSABER 11 Pro is enhanced with the development concept of decisive control. Analysis of the previous model showed potential for improvement by increasing frame stability while increasing shuttle contact time.
Frame stability is improved with a new frame structure that has a stiff build at the top and bottom of the face, reducing twisting and unwanted distortion at impact. The new CONTROL-ASSIST BUMPER is a connected grommet piece placed at the top of the frame which contains T-ANCHOR, micro-sized tetrapods, that help lock in vertical strings reducing unwanted string movement and improving accuracy.
To extend shuttle contact time, the sides of the frame, unlike the top and bottom, are softer allowing flexibility around the sweet spot. Also a new technology, the POCKETING BOOSTER is lined within the top of the frame. This inner lining is a proprietary rubber-like material that brings additional elasticity to the frame's flex increasing both shuttle hold and shuttle launch speed.
The advancements in the new model saw 6.6% increase in shuttle contact time, and 3.7% increase in smash power in comparison to the previous ARCSABER 11 (tested by Yonex).
The new ARCSABER 11 Pro will be seen in the hands of World No.1 mixed doubles Sapsiree Taerattanachai (THA), Tokyo Olympics Bronze Medalist in men"s doubles Aaron Chia(MAS), and many other elite players on tour.
ENHANCED ARCSABER FRAME
Control with confidence through this unique frame structure with varying levels of flex from top, sides, to bottom, built to increase shuttle hold while reducing instability and twisting at impact.
CONTROL-ASSIST BUMPER + POCKETING BOOSTER
The CONTROL-ASSIST BUMPER is a connected grommet attached at the top of the frame. This bumper contains T-ANCHOR, micro-sized tetrapods that lock onto the strings. By locking onto the strings, unwanted string movements are reduced to improve accuracy.
The top of the frame is lined with POCKETING BOOSTER*, a proprietary rubber-like material emphasizing elasticity in the frame"s flex.
The new ARCSABER 11 Pro has an expanded ISOMETRIC face in comparison to the previous model. The expansion allows for a larger, more forgiving sweet spot.
With nearly 15 years of history that saw astonishing performances from world-class athletes like Taufik Hidayat (INA), the ARCSABER series holds a unique positioning in the Yonex racket line-up as a series defined by shuttle-hold. In 2007 when the series was first released, the ARCSABER 7 came at a time when repulsion-based rackets were the standard. Today, after years of research and development, shuttle-hold has become a key ingredient in providing confidence for an athlete and their shuttle control.
