The ARCSABER frame is designed to flex at the point of impact to hold the shuttle on the string bed for longer. By storing and then releasing energy, ARCSABER delivers precise shot-making for players seeking a higher level of control. Positioned at the sides of the racquet, CS Carbon Nanotubes improve the frame’s elasticity, holding the shuttle on the string bed for enhanced control at the point of impact.
“I feel more power, and even more accurate control. With this racquet, everyone can improve their game.” Taufik Hidayat
1. Neo CS CARBON NANOTUBE
Offering greater flexibility, great durability and repulsion power, Neo CS CARBON NANOTUBE delivers outstanding performance when you need to hit powerful, controlled shots. Neo CS CARBON NANOTUBE and CS CARBON NANOTUBE combined improve the hold and bite effect generated by the multiple stacking construction. 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.

2. 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.
This acoustic, combined with the dramatic increase in repulsion, will put your opponent under immediate pressure.
3. Ultra PEF
The shaft is constructed using ‘Ultra PEF’ – ultra poly ethylene fibre – which is light enough to float on water yet able to withstand immense forces. these characteristics allow for maximum shock absorption.
A new composite material T-ANCHOR used in the T-joint helps reduce excess torque when hitting an off centre shot.
The square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length, as well as the horizontal strings to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions.
