    apacs expert out there, hear me out :p

    been researching on this brand and i found three different versions of the NS9000 clone,

    1) the nano 9000 power
    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-APACS-NANO-...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item2302929c39

    2) the nano 9000 speed
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33277&highlight=apacs+nano+9000

    3) the nano 900
    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-APACS-NANO-...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item23029cacac

    just some links to justify my points. Most people refer to the nano 900 SPEED as the clone, while a handful refer to just the nano 9000 (not sure if they are lazy to type out the speed). So given that this racuqet_ebay guy is legit...

    does anyone knows the difference????:confused::confused::confused::confused:

    I measured my L70 with original grip and unstrung condition, the BP is 290mm, just nice. :)

    It was strung with Bg85 and with original grip, so its BP should be larger than 290mm in this case. However i didn measure the bp before it was broken. :rolleyes:

    After wanting it for a couple of months, i just got the Apacs Lethal Light 1.10 last week.
    Im not sure if it has been reviewed before, but after 1.5 hrs of testing here's what i found:
    1. The racket is slightly head light. Its surely a doubles racket
    2. I was curious particularly about its weight. It turns out it weight 76.2 grams without grip or string. I measured it using digital jewelry scale. Some claim that LL, along with a few other Apacs series, are the lightest racket ATM.
    3. Paint and design wise, nice and shiny but look a bit cheap. Cant complain :)
    4. Playability; the best defensive racket i ever use. Its better than Yonex NS9900 for defense because its so light, i could not feel much effort moving the racket around.
    5. Flex and control; Its a medium flex IMO which provide nice control for drops, serve/smash return, net play etc. In comparison Yonex NS990 is very stiff which i think was designed to provide a greater power
    6. Durability; So far so good, but i will not predict that it will outlast Yonex built quality. Also the fact that its so light, Im not quite sure if it will stand a higher string tension (currently i think mine is no more than 26lbs)
    7. Value for money: Absolutely!! Its less than one third of high end Yonex, Li Ning, etc. I have not found any racket with better quality than this (or Apacs brand in general) at USD45, weldone Apacs.

    I would certainly pick LL 1.10 for social and friendly matches but not for competitive matches. I recommend this racket for non-smashing double players.

    Yeah, I agree...I've Z-spark & Nano900power(red)...I think Z-spark is slightly heavy and therefore has a nicer feelings during smash. Perhaps because of the slim frame design or maybe due ti its slightly longer shaft.

    p/s: Kenichi Toga (Japan) almost beat Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia) by using Z-slash design ;) . However, experience do make difference...
