The Yonex ArcSaber 11 (Arc11) is a new release to replace the older and well known ArcSaber 10 (Arc10). The ArcSaber 11 is crafted using the new Neo CS CARBON NANOTUBE to provide added bite to the shuttlecock and the new SONIC METAL to increase the ability to deliver a high repulsion, rapid-fire return. The Yonex ArcSaber 11 is designed to deliver pinpoint accuracy in the heat of lightening fast rallies. Neo CS CARBON NANOTUBE, refined by YONEX engineers, allows the racquet to achieve new levels of frame flexibility holding the shuttle on the string bed for even longer, for greater control at the point of impact, to allow you hit counter receive shots with the accuracy and speed you need to kill the point.
SMASH-BACK: THE RETURN REVOLUTION
In todays high voltage game those players who can smash with speed and accuracy have a huge advantage. The ideal way to fight back against these hard-hitters is to turn your defence into an attack; to have the receiving ability to take the initiative. The ARCSABER 11 and ARCSABER FB have been designed to create a new playing style, one where you can turn defence into attack.
THE RETURN REVOLUTION IS HERE!
The ARCSABER 11 allows you to take control like never before. It enables you to increase the shuttle speed when you return a smash shot with an unprecedented level of accuracy. With the ARCSABER 11 you have the ability to seize the initiative in an instant. Turn the opponents smash into your attack with accuracy and speed.
SMASH BACK: TURN OPPONENT SMASH INTO PRECISION ATTACK
The ARCSABER 11 offers badminton players an even greater level of control during the high speed rallies that are a part of todays game. The intensity and speed of these rallies make it difficult for even the worlds best players to play every shot from the centre of the racquet. By storing and then releasing energy, the ARCSABER 11 delivers precise shot-making, the frame is designed to flex at the point of impact, Neo CS CARBON NANOTUBE improves the frames elasticity helping to hold the shuttle on the string bed for greater control at the point of impact.
SONIC METAL positioned in the frame, helps to give you even greater repulsion power especially when attacking, producing a sharper sound to unsettle your opponent. This combined with a new composite material T-ANCHOR, used in the T-Joint helps reduce excess torque when hitting an off centre shot.
The ARCSABER 11 controlled power for your game.
Neo CS (Cup-Stack) Carbon Nanotube : The new Cup-Stack Carbon Nanotube resembles multilayered cups uniformly stacked together providing increased durability and improved flexibility. Neo CS CARBON NANOTUBE, positioned both sides of the racquet head, enables the frame to quickly return back to its normal shape increasing the repulsion power.
Sonic Metal : SONIC METAL is an exceptionally strong, lightweight and flexible new titanium alloy which YONEX positions at the top of the frame. This has two advantages. Firstly, it gives you a higher repulsion power, especially in attack. Secondly, it creates a clear strong sound when the shuttlecock is hit.
Super HMG : The new ARCSABER10 is adopted High Modulus Graphite which has been integrated into the side of the frame to produce a high repulsion power. Hybrid frame, the combination of Cup-Stack Carbon Nanotube inside and Super HMG outside the frame, makes it possible to control a hard shot with flexibility and repulsion power.
Ultra PEF : UltraPEF (Ultra Poly Ethylene Fiber) has stickyness and high shock absorbtion. The material is extremely light enough to float on water, and the 1 inch across is able to hang up about 20 tons. The telling shot which is requested by advanced-level players and the high repulsion by stretching and recovering its shape are achieved.
Single Piece Grommet System : This single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes, creating a high-performance stringing pattern that puts 7% more durability.
Isometric : The Isometric Square Head Shape equalizes the length of main and cross strings in the stringbed, enlarging the sweetspot for more consistent accuracy even on off-center hits.
Built-in T-Joint : Moulded deep into the layers of graphite where the frame connects with the shaft, the YONEX built-in T-Joint creates a durable and high-strength one-piece frame that is torque-free.
Control Support Cap / C.S. Cap : Control Support Cap provides 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easy gripping, fast swing-through and the quickest manoeuvrability.
