    if you're looking for lethal series, go for higher end. L60/L90/L100/ the new L110. they are good for heavy smashing. Among those, i've tried L60... good fro smashing indeed but i still prefer my T200.

    had a chance to play with YY ARC10 which have similar spec (even balance, stiff shaft) with T200. ARC 10 feels more solid and a little bit heavier than T200. IMO, T200 can really challenge ARC10 in every aspect except, drop shot, ARC10 is excellent in this department.

    But value for money, T200 still the best. the price is 1/3 cheaper than an ARC10.

    I would say yes, but don't string at a tension 24+ lbs. You have to get your body used to the racket first before you can increase the tension. I would suggest you start with 20-22 lbs. tension and then see if you can clear the shuttle from end to end of the court before you increase the tension. Good luck!

    I agree. I actually thought that the Arc10 didn't feel as great as the T200 because the T200 actually has a thicker frame and the Arc10 is a slimmer frame. I also feel a lot safer playing with the T200 because it's a solid racket but also because if it breaks while I'm stringing or during a game, I'm like "Awwwww, there goes $80 for this T200 :(" vs. "F***, there goes $200 for this damn Arc10!"

    Use to own T200 as well and is a good racket for power and smashes. Best part is the pricing :)
    It may not be suitable for beginner due to its stiffness and wrong technique may cause injuries.
    Optionally it can be strung at lower tension to begin with and slowly move up according to your adaptibility

    Bro,
    Perhaps you may go for Lethal 9/10.

    Hey !
    I was looking for lethal 10 , but the shop i went to told me that lethal 10 is a old model and there might not be any stock left , so he suggested me to get the lethal light power/special .
    So do you think that the lethal light power/special is similar to lethal 10 ? What are the difference (other than weight) of these rackets and which one should i get ?

    Regards

    One thing to note for SG apacs buyers, for most of the models up to 2012(to my knowledge) the apacs available for distro in Singapore are mostly re-badged/re-painted MY models. E.G. Lethal 7 is badged Lethal offensive in Singapore, slightly different paint job, playability is identical(personally tested). If you see for e.g. Lethal 7 in SG, they are parallel imports from MY, nothing wrong here, just fyi. There are also models that are not available in MY via official channels or available via parallel import like the Tweet series.

    I guess where I am going with this is, if you are in Singapore and you are getting recommendations like Lethal 10 etc from other forummers, you might have difficulty finding official distro Lethal 10s in SG, because it is usually 'disguised' as something else, the paintjob will be similar e.g Lethal 10 is blue-ish if I'm not wrong. Hence you might be holding a racket that you are after, just that it's called something else at Queensway or w/e your regular shop is.

    That said, after all the racket's I have used, nothing beats my 12 year old Apacs Armorpower 800!!! Damn awesome racket.

    Hey , I don't quite get what u meant though ..
    What did you meant by "if you are in Singapore and you are getting recommendations like Lethal 10 etc from other forummers, you might have difficulty finding official distro Lethal 10s in SG, because it is usually 'disguised' as something else" and "Hence you might be holding a racket that you are after, just that it's called something else at Queensway or w/e your regular shop is."
    Can you elaborate more on this ?
    Thanks bro !

    Regards

    They rebadged it for marketing purposes(I personally think its dumb), example the Lethal Offensive and Lethal 7 is one and the same racket. This was confirmed to me by the boss of Honly in JB, and I personally went down to smashsports at Simei with a lethal 7 to compare and trial swing a Lethal Offensive and it's identical only the cosmetic paintjob is different and obviously the SG version is called Lethal Offensive instead of Lethal 7. Hence I said in my earlier post that if you want to find Lethal 7s in Singapore, you won't find it unless you walk into a shop which has a parallel imported Lethal 7 because the official name for SG distro is Lethal Offensive.

    There is no one serie. They have rackets that look like Yonex but don't play like it and they have rackets that don't look like it but play more like it :D ...
