Need Help: Li Ning Aeronaut 4000C vs Yonex Arcsaber 11 Pro

avatar male m

Hello all,

I’m a club/district level player with a balanced/attacking game style. I currently use Li Ning Xiphos X1 which I feel is very good but lacks power and slight control too.

I was looking at the current lineup and have narrowed down to two main options: Li Ning Aeronaut 4000C and Yonex Arcsaber 11 Pro. Has anyone used these rackets? If yes, how has been your experience? Any reviews for Aeronaut 4000C (cannot seem to find any proper review online)?

Which would be good for all round + attacking play (I rely heavily on clears, smashes and slices)? How is the build quality? Which is more comfortable to play with? Lastly, which is easier to control, generate power, and maneuver the shuttle?

Given that Arcsaber 11 Pro is a relatively newer model, what advantages does it offer over the Aeronaut 4000C?
I currently use Li Ning Xiphos X1, so will the upgrade to either of the models be worth it?

Please advise,
Thank you!
