    Sounds like a good deal :)

    Do note that Bg66 yonex strings loses tension pretty quickly.

    Enjoy your racket!

    Probably we should organise a APAC club badminton session so everyone can have a chance to give try on different racket!

    Just had my chance to try the Apacs Nanopower 900. It's a good racket for people just getting into the sport or any player not looking to smash a lot.

    It was a good racket, but for MY style I like to smash and play from the mid/backcourt. Unfortunately, from the back the Nanopower 900 doesn't have enough power for me to do any damage.

    The racket was stiff, even balance though leaning towards head heavy, 4U (this might be why it wasn't a phenomenal racket for me), and the head is box-frame shaped. It is modeled after the Yonex Armortec 900 Power.

    For now I will have to stick with my Tantrum 200.

    i think T200 is still light compare to L90 which is heavier and has more power.

    yeah, just safe more money and get T300 or T500. if you want to get a good racket with affordable price then you may consider Visible Hollow 2020.

    I personally do not like the lurid power rackets

    I bought one used from a fellow BCer, and it vibrates way too much.

    Also defensively it feels sluggish and the frame is not as aerodynamic as I like it to be.

    I am not sure how strong you are, but if you can find one, buy a APACS Tantrum 500 International or a Slayer 99-3U version.. I own both the S99 and T500, and for the money (~$100-120 in Canada they are great rackets)

    since you are new then you may get Apacs nano power 900 (white/black), it is a good and cheap racket. once you have improved then you can get T500 or Slayer 99 as they are advanced racket.

    Hey guys, I just started playing badminton about two months ago. My current racket (Yonex Nanospeed 100) just doesn't feel that great to me. So I'm looking for an Apacs racket that will last me a long time and help me progress with my skillls, I primarily play doubles.

    Hi ,
    I'm also a beginner and I'm using the foray 300 , it is really a great racket for me , medium flex and even balance racket , really decent smashing ability and net play

    Regards
