    i got my lethal 60 from racket_sports, it's on specs, the only problem is that the paint comes off rather easily... but i think that's the problem with apacs and not him... great racket and great power tho...
    only problem with the trade was that he didn't have it in stock and took an extra 2 days or so to send it... but no big problems...

    Yeah let me guess was it Steve grifiths (or something like that) that you emailed ? Yeah he is a cheeky little .................. (you can fill in the gap) I once emailed him asking when they were getting more edgesaber 7s in stock to which he replied

    "we don't next month, next year, never" what kind of answer is that ? All I wanted to know is when they were getting more stock and I got a reply that gave me no help at all, I decided not to buy an apace racket cause of that, and if I do I will avoid buying from Steve griffins

    I know that in Canada there is no import duties on rackets (that I've seen anyway) as I've bought from HK extensively. You will probably have to pay any federal or local sales taxes though.

    bought 4 rackets from racquet_sports in one order. No import duties was imposed for Australia. Been informed that the limit here is AUD1000, above that market value 10% tax will apply

    should be alright, just test it out first, since ur in Malaysia anyway.... make sure the balance point is about 29cm from the bottom of the racket....(balance point should be between bottom of the (triple) arrow and the H on "HM TITANIUM POWER FRAME" on the shaft) if ur ordering online make sure u can return it if it's not on spec and get them to verify with the product before they send it off

    Hi guys
    I just received (yesterday) my new Lethal 60 with Zymax 0,62 strings. It's my first Apacs racket and I like it too much :p

    Before that I had the Carlton Powerblade Titanium. Can someone tell me which Apacs racket is similar to those specs?

    Features
    • Level: Advanced
    • Type: All Around / Offensive
    • Flex: Stiff
    • Head: Square / Isometric / Quad
    • Weight: 91gm(2U-)
    • B.Pt: 7 (Even Balance)
    • ===============
    • Head: High Modulus Carbon Graphite, Titanium
    • Shaft: High Modulus Carbon Graphite
    found on http://www.badmintonalley.com/Carlton_Powerblade_Titanium_p/racket-c-powerblade-ti.htm

    Thanks for your help! ;)

    I don't have L60...but my L70 has excellent paint. I've had a few mishits and the paint is still how it looked in the wrapping.

    L60 = 60% Attack/ 40% defense
    L70 = 70% Attack / 30% defense
    L80 = 80% Attack/ 20% defense
    L90 = 90% Attack / 10% defense
    L100 = 100% Attack/ 0% defense



    Just joking. :D

    I have L60 not L70. Paint is durable. My paint chipped when hit by an idiot's racket. Prior to that, it is all ok. Just that the lines are not very straight. Maybe hand drawn :D.

    the paint isn't very good on my L60.... reminds me of a thick m&m shell but on my racket instead of being on the chocolate... survived 3 light collisions so far... no sign of damage to the frame, but the paint comes right off... the paint on my MP100 seems better....
