    I've not tried the lethal 70 however the pictures of Lethal 50/60/70 look very different to the Lethal 90 (See frame cross section and T-Joint) - so I imagine the feel will be very different. I'd love to compare the VH2020 with the Lethal 70 but I can't afford to buy another racket just to try.

    Sorry the rackets listed are the only ones I've tried - my previous rackets were Kennex 858s.

    Well seeing as my Li-Ning racket broke in a clash in my first game! :mad:
    I've decided to move to the much more affordable APACS :D
    I don't have a lot to spend seeing as I spent it on the Li-Ning so what can everyone recommend for an agressive doubles player?
    I'm considering the Lethal 9? or Nano 9900 Power
    I'd like the racket to generate power easily

    Get Tantrum 200 or Stern 300, or VH series 1700, 1300 or 2000.

    Hi TKChai & sxg2009,

    may I know why you pick Lethal 9 or nano 9900?

    and why you recomment Stern 200 & 300 and VH 1700, 1300 & 2000?

    In fact what is teh differences between Vh2000 and VH2010?

    thanks

    I chose the lethal 9 because of the high speed frame offering faster swing speed really lol

    are there any slightly cheaper alternatives?

    Hey guys, I just checked out some of the Apacs rackets and a "Yonex ArcSaber Z Slash (Arc-Z) Badminton Racket" is about 250bucks but a Apacs Edgesaber Z Slayer is only about 60 bucks and has the same design. Can anyone tell me the downside to using a apacs(if theres any?) because the price is so low.

    Also can anyone recommend a racket for me under 80 bucks for smashing(offensive) doubles playing within the apacs brand.

    Get the VH1700. Great for smashing and also good control. I got it from racketsports at ebay for ~ 60 with custom string. I think he has more in stock.

    Hi, this is one of my first rackets since I started playing badminton again. It's a powerful racket if you prefer rackets with flexible shaft. I don't use it anymore. I'm more than willing to let it go if you wanna buy one :)
