    Simple rule of thumb:

    Apacs - LESS THAN RM200 - it is a clone of either Yonex, Victor or Li-Ning.
    Apacs - MORE THAN RM200 - that will be their own "HIGH-END" original brand like Tantrum series.

    Apacs "clones" - from what I heard, it is a "hit-and-miss" affair dependng on your luck but 9/10 times OK.

    Apacs "HIGH END" - really nice esp Tantrum 200 but I am Yonex Cab20 die-hard :D, although I have tried playing with a number of them.

    Need help in choosing racket. I am a intermediate player more inclined to attacking/offensive play, looking for a moderate and slight head heavy racket for doubles/singles usage. I have tried tantrum 200 the feel is solid and great and now i am a fan of it. Previous racket MP99

    Apacs Tantrum 200, 500
    Apacs Lethal 70, 110
    Apacs Slayer 99

    Your help will be deeply appreciated.

    if you want more head heavy racket, you should consider Tantrum 500 or Lethal 70. they are good and powerful attacking rackets. i am not sure about lethal 110 as it is a new racket.

    lethal 70 is stiff and tantrum 500 is flexible but they both are head heavy. if you want the stiffer racket, lethal 90 is good to consider. i have tantrum 200, it's a even balanced racket and easy to use. for the power, of course T500 and L70 is more powerful than T200

    How about Slayer 99 and Lethal 110? So your advice will be getting the T500 and L70 for power and T200 for balance and easy to use. For the T200 is a forgiving racket easy to use is true as what you said.

    I tried the l70, T500, Slayer99, lethal90 and T200.
    I'd say the Lethal70 is quite taxing to use, it's not an easy-going racket (stiff and headheavy) You can get good power from it.
    The T500 is a lot easier to play with, the thinner and more flexible shaft make it easier to generate good power, balance and weight are (for my rackets) identical to the L70.
    The T200 is a more steady racket, ease of use like the t500, but more even balanced and stiff.

    Then the slayer99 and lehal90, I don't know what to make of them. The aerodynamic headshape makes them play completely different than the others. The slayer99 is quite solid, it's heavier than the T200, but swings slightly quicker, I couldn't get used to the even-balance though.
    Almost the same goes for the L90, it's quick a hits nicely, the head heavieness is nice, but this quick 3U frame hits like a 4U; not for me.

    I conclusion, I picked the t500 because it's nice and attacking, but feels easy to use.

    Are you the same type of player like me? Need help in choosing racket. I am a intermediate player more inclined to attacking/offensive play, looking for a moderate and slight head heavy racket for doubles/singles usage.

    actually the slayer 99 and lethal 90 have the similar head shape to make them swing faster. if you need to a better defend so these rackets are good to use. if you have used MP99, so you should consider T200 or T500.
