    Yea, i've read many good reviews of it, but i promise myself this time i will not buy a racket that i haven't tested lol... So i much rather prefer to buy 1 after demoing it. I would probably just buy the demo 1 on the spot since you never know if the one you order somewhere else is within spec, i've heard from some of the forum members with the Apacs rackets being out of spec.

    High end APACS rackets are 1/2 or 1/3 the price of Yonex and they are really good and off specifications are insignificant.

    I owned 2 apacs tantrum 300 and 1 lethal 70. Both are amazing, but I prefer tantrum over the Lethal, a bit less stiff and less demanding. Power, control, everything is good.

    Before apacs, I played with Yonez Arc Saber 10, this racket is not close to be as good as Apacs high end stuff. It's a no brainer for 1\3 of the price.

    Also, I try the apacs PU grip, on par with Karakal grips. Last for long time, but like everything else, when he is very wet, he becomes slippery a bit.

    Lethal is generally more heavy and head heavy then tantrum. So it is more demanding to use.

    Tantrum 300 specs look a lot like a nanospeed 9000 S

    I think choosing between a 9000 S , X, or 9900 probably comes down to preference

    Then it wouldn't be a T300 anymore would it. Also the 9900 maybe to stiff for some ppl.

    Less demanding = first time you touch thid racket you don't need to adjust your timing, sweet spot is large, power come effortless.

    Would you say they are more on the hold side or repulsion side? Does Apacs have some plot chart like Yonex and Victor?

    Can anybody confirm or dispute that the APACS Furious 767 is excellent for offensive doubles play? Is it still available at the shops?
