The new Arcsaber 7 Pro 4U adopts the unique feel of impact and offers enhanced playability with an emphasis on shuttle pocketing for a controlled attack.
The acclaimed ARCSABER series is now complemented by the Yonex Arcsaber 7 Pro. This badminton racket is designed for optimal flex and torque to improve precision for intermediate and advanced players. Taking control of the court can take many forms, and for the Arcsaber it comes from the extra milliseconds of shuttle contact time. This allows for assertive and super accurate shots to be hit. 'Hold for flight' was central to the development of this great racquet!
With nearly 15 years of history and stunning performances by world-class athletes such as Taufik Hidayat (INA), the ARCSABER series has a unique position in the Yonex racquet lineup 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 rackets were the standard. Today, after years of research and development, shuttle-hold has become a key ingredient in giving an athlete confidence and shuttle control.
The new ARCSABER 7 has been improved with the development concept of "decisive control." Analysis of the previous model showed potential for improvement by increasing the stability of the frame while extending the shuttle contact time.
Frame stability has been improved by the new frame structure with a rigid structure at the top and bottom of the face, reducing twisting and unwanted deformation on impact. The new CONTROL-ASSIST BUMPER is a connected grommet piece, which is placed at the top of the frame that contains a T-ANCHOR. These are micro-sized tetrapods, which help lock in vertical strings, reducing unwanted string movement and improving accuracy.
To increase shuttle contact time, the sides of the frame, as opposed to the top and bottom, are softer, allowing flexibility around the sweet spot. Also, a new technology, the POCKETING BOOSTER, is incorporated inside the top of the frame. This inner lining is a patented rubberized material that provides additional elasticity to the flex of the frame, increasing both shuttle hold and shuttle launch speed.

Enlarged Sweet Spot
ISOMETRICTM technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success.
Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRICTM design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings.
ISOMETRICTM delivers greater control without sacrificing power. ISOMETRICTM is a Trademark of Yonex CO., LTD.

Solid Feel Core
The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.
Ultra PE Fiber
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.
Super Slim Shaft
Reduced Air Resistance
The slimmest racquet ever produced by YONEX vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.
Energy Boost CAP
The new shape allows the shaft to flex, which ensures the maximum effect of “Namd(more flex and faster kick-back graphite material)” and stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control.
A new composite material T-ANCHOR used in the T-joint helps reduce excess torque when hitting an off-center shot.
New Built-in T-Joint
The lightweight T-Joint increases the stability of the shuttle on the strings, maximizing power and control.
The extra stiff profile provides a solid stable feel on impact with the shuttle.
ENHANCED ARCSABER FRAME
Control with confidence through this unique frame structure with varying levels of flex from top, sides, to bottom, built to increase shuttle hold while reducing instability and twisting at impact.
The frame is lined with POCKETING BOOSTER, a proprietary rubber-like material emphasizing elasticity in the frame’s flex.
