I put the Yonex Arcsaber 11 Pro Badminton Racket to the test and found that it lived up to its reputation as a stiff flex, even balance racket with an aerodynamic frame. The racket felt fast in my hands and I was excited to see how it would perform on the court.
As I swung the racket overhead, I immediately noticed its solid-hitting capabilities and even balanced. The fast frame allowed the head to move through the swing with ease, making me consider switching from my preferred head-heavy racket.
As I let my hands do the work, I was pleased with the punch and stroke of the clear, zero drag on the frame, resulting in a nice clean hit. I couldn’t help but enjoy using this racket.
I also found the racket to be well-suited for drop shots, whether I was delivering with slices or pushing through, or rolling my hands for a faster delivery. The weight in the head provided enough control for me to remain in control, and the faster frame allowed for a quick and snappy alternative in shot execution.
When it came to defense, the Arcsaber 11 Pro performed well, with its quick swing speed and enough weight in the head to feel where the racket was moving and maintain control. I was able to easily time my lifts and had a solid platform to confidently block returns.
At the net, the racket was nimble and provided enough control to execute tight net shots while still allowing for extra speed on pushes, interceptions and net kills.
Overall, I found the Arcsaber 11 Pro to be an upgrade on the original model. It felt stronger, faster, punchier, more powerful and the feel on the stringbed was so much better. The RRP of around £170, which is lower than the original Arcsaber 11, makes it an excellent value for its performance.
