    Thanks for your advice ;) Care to share a little with your new found weapon? What's so gd/special over T200? Thanks

    I can tell you that the L110 is more balanced, lighter, and medium flex. It produces similar power to the T200 but it's faster swing, easier to manoeuvre, better defense, and more control at the net.

    Oh, and did I mention it's yellow? :cool:

    Oh dear... there it comes again... "mid Flex"!! I'm always very sceptical with Apacs each time they claimed "Stiff". I had a T500 once before but didn't like it, too flex for me. Thus I need to check with BC pals 1st before buying another Apacs. Perhaps I should stick with well tested T200 or L70 since I enjoy stiff + HH ones.

    Trust me, L70 is definitely stiff and HH, beast combination, best racket of Apacs period. Unfortunately I broke the handle of it and switched back to my old trusty Armor Muscle Pro 90 and it's still very good to play.

    And the L110 would still be stiff if someone is not used to stiff racket.

    hey guys, I just bought an Apacs Nano Fusion 722 from lelong. Will be trying it out hopefully this weekend with my 12 year old nephew. btw. I've strung it at 27 pounds. I'm used to high tension ranges of 26-32, and I think I'm happy to settle around 27. Anyway, I'll post my review of the racket once I test it out. Frankly I've never tried 27 pounds for a 6U racket.

    I've tried out a few other Apacs models, I can't remember their names... but I must say that it's a dream come true to finally own one, and ever better being a birthday present from my wife :)

    Manage to test run my first Apacs rackets in 6 years, a pair of Lethal 9. The last model I had was the clone of nano speed 7000 and AT900P.

    Had a 4hr session today and the lethal 9 excels atthe forecourt at net kills and interception.
    The light weight of the racket means that although defensive shots and changes of shuttle tracjectory is a breeze but in attacking options it does suffers a fair bit.

    The racket lacks power at the rear court and it's a bit muted on feel as in where the shuttle will land. This is a racket that requires good timing and I would say is not really meant for beginners as one requires good basic techniques to wield it effectively.

    Lastly the rackets were strung on Yonex electronic machines at 30lbs with BG66.
    Stock grip was removed and replace with Karakal PU grip.

    Apacs seems to have improve on their QC but the decals does need some work.

    30lbs is a little extreme for a light weight racket in the sense that it will affect your ability to precisely place your shots, unless you have a fabulously powerful wrist (professional level). At 30 lbs you're also compromising on the available sweet-spot on the string surface. I would guess that it wouldn't be a problem if you were using 4U or heavier rackets....

    Removing the stock grip was an excellent idea to give it a head heavy balance.

    30 is my usual tension on the VT80 N90II and spira 22. These lethal was more of a impluse buy as I can't risk bringing my main rackets to US. So got these cheap so that if it snaps during the trip it won't hurt as much.

    Only complain is the overall weight is light so rear court smashes required more effort.

    I heard that the Lethal 8 specs are almost the same specs as Lethal 9. Maybe you should get that?

    sweet... just got my very own Apacs Nano Fusion 722. I love the feeling. Can't wait to unleash some backhand madness tomorrow night and put the racket to test. But now I can proudly say, I'm officially in the Apacs Club! :)
