The acclaimed ARCSABER series designed for control is reimagined and returning to courts in February 2022. Inheriting the one-of-a-kind feeling at impact, the new ARCSABER 11 will sport enhanced playability with emphasized shuttle-pocketing for a controlled offense. Taking control of the court can come in all different forms, and for the ARCSABER, it comes from the extra few milliseconds of shuttle contact time allowing assertive, precise shot-making.
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 racquet 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 racquets 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.
The new ARCSABER 11 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).
