    Hey there SS, thanks very much for the incredibly detailed response!

    I have the Tantrum 200, and I can tell you that the Arc10 that I used is *nothing* like my T200. To be honest, the Arc10 that I used is not exactly genuine, and it had a very obvious heavy head feel to it.

    Shortly after posting my question here, I did a little research on the Yonex website, and basically came to the same conclusion that you pointed out, which is that the Arc10 that I played with do not correspond to the Arc10 as stated on the website.

    Too bad, because I thought the racquet is pretty good, and if I got the genuine article I would be getting more of the real Yonex goodness! :)

    I do have 2 questions:
    1. Where do you find the specs for the APACS racquets you quoted in your post? Finding a good APACS website with good info is like finding a needle in a haystack.
    2. Any suggestions for a stiff, head-heavy APACS?

    Believe me, i have gone through most of the recent posts lol and that is how i managed to narrow down to only 4 choices. It's really hard to choose between them as the earlier posts mostly recommended only either one of the four without any comparison.

    I guess it boils down to option 1 and 3 then. Do you have any personal experience with both of them?

    I'm stringing the entire Finapi Range for a friend of mine, I have the Finapi 30,33,70,80, 232 and 252. But they're all the same medium-stiff, 4U, Even balanced rackets, just different types of frame...

    What are your thoughts about the Finapi Series? Just bang-for-buck? Or quality stuff like the Tantrums, Lethal 60,70,90,100 and tweets?

    From what I've heard the Finapi series are just inexpensive graphite rackets. I also heard that the Tweet rackets are not really "quality stuff" like you mentioned. The L100 didn't get such good reviews either.

    T200/300 and L60/70 are very good for sure though. L90 is okay, but just a Victor Bravesword knockoff.

    I've only tried the nano 9900 power (not nano 9900 without the power) it feels balanced and a bit flexible..

    I think I disagree with you on the Tweets, the 6000 and 7000 didn't get great marks from 1-2 people, as did the tantrum 500. But the T500 was great and the tweet 6k was pretty decent (it felt more like a headheavy midflex 4U to me, despite what the stats say)

    I want to test them all out (for fun), but my expectations for the Finapi's aren't that high now ;)

    Ah okay, of course I may be wrong as my knowledge of the Tweets and T500 is merely hearsay.

    The Finapi's shouldn't be bad at fulfilling their function as Yonex look-a-like's / inexpensive graphite rackets, but I don't think one should expect that they be high end rackets :)

    Appealing to bros here, which should I get - T200 or latest Lethal 110? Understand both are stiff & HH, many rave reviews already for T200/300 but I'm caught with this new L110... Hope someone has tried both & could offer me a comparison/advice :confused:

    Get the T110, it's more fun with it. I sold my T200 and stayed happy with the L110. Although L70 is still the most powerful.
