NEW for 2011 Just in. Yonex's DX frame was made in response to the high-tension needs of modern badminton. The total area of the frame cross section has been increased to improve stiffness of the frame, yet the racket is easy to handle because of its even balance. Strong in both defense and attack. The ArcSaber 5DX features bright designs in both orange and magenta. String this bad boy up to 27 pounds under Yonex warranty
Implementing the new exclusive "Cup-Stack Carbon Nanotube" technology into the frame of the ARC SABER 10 has made it possible for the racquet itself to absorb and harness the energy created upon impact with the shuttle...then explosively transfer it to create a return shot with superme power and accuracy.
ARC SABER 5DX FEATURES:
CUP-STACK CARBON NANOTUBE: The new material Cup-Stack Carbon Nanotube is applied in the racquet frame which enables to give the players right amount of flex to stay with the ball, and quick repulsion to make the full energy available for power return.
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 NEW GROMMET SYSTEM: The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes, creating a high-performance stringing pattern that puts 7% more durability.
MUSCLE POWER: Muscle Power seats the string on rounded archways that eliminate stress-load and fatigue through contact friction. The construction creates total unity of the string and frame through closer-and-tighter contact.
ELASTIC TI: Elastic Ti provides the high elasticity needed for structural high strength and a powerful rebound effect. At impact, Elastic Ti resists deformation, stretching then recovering its shape quickly to launch accurate hits charged with the full energy of the swing.
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: The Control Support Cap provides 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easy gripping, fast swing-through and the quickest manoeuvrability.
