    So the frame design is different, just look like the same viewed from certain angle. I will choose lethal 100, it's slimmer and theoretically should be faster than slayer 99.

    I got my Nano Fusion Speed 722 rackets yesterday! I'll write down some thoughts on them after I get to play Saturday. I can tell this will be a good defensive racket, just with how light the racket is, and how quickly I can maneuver it. Looking forward to this weekend!

    L100 is not faster just has more flex.If you get 3u slayer then slayer is slightly quicker due to being lighter and even balance.

    Can someone tell me what the "PK" imprint on the shaft of this Lethal 90 means? The handle has the normal UK flag on it.
    Edit: I've seen there are SG, NA and PK versions. So maybe SG=Singapore, NA=N/A, but PK=Pakistan?
    Thank you.

    Pk,uk,ca,au,us

    Yes this is normal.
    Apacs also put PK,UK,US,CA,AU on there shaft.This tells them which distributer the rackets have gone to.
    The UK flag is the trademark and has it on all cones no matter if it is Asia,Europe,America.

    Can you please briefly compare Lethal 60/70 with VT80 please. Currently I am using Arc10 and looking for a more head heavy feel. I am looking at VT80 and Lethal 70. It is nice if you can give me some comparisons. Thank you :)

    I notice that Apacs have a series named Foray.
    And from they FaceBook page, they seem has just release many new model under this series. E.g. Foray 700, Foray 707, Foray 800, Foray 808... etc.

    Can I know this series characteristic ?
    Any review on the above?

    I am particularly interest on the Foray 808, as I am currently looking for a 4U racket with Even Balance BP. And since this is a new series, I assume it have better technology behind.

    If you could compare the Lethal 90 to any other racket, which would it be?

    i think L90 is heavier and stiffer than BS12. it should be around BS09.

    Considering bs12 and bs09 are practically the same, I would say this racket is not close because it swings slower.

    Hi everyone! I was at the APAC distributor shop the other day and really like the Howler offensive racket. Any reviews/thoughts on this particular racket? Would appreciate some feedback. Cheers!

    my tantrum 500 n lethal 90. Still haven't got use to them maybe because the tension is too high 26lbs using apacs slayer strings . I still miss my tantrum 200 the most. gonna change to lower tension bg 66 soon

    there is no way that you can compare L90 and T500 with T200 because they are more head heavy and stiffer. T200 is even balanced racket and more a control racket. L90 and T500 are more attacking racket.

    if you can get a good deal of this Howler racket, i think you should get it because this racket is quite similar to Yonex Nanospeed so it's fast.

    I thought my t200 is more head heavy thats y i loved it . too bad its gone :(
    The tantrum 500 feels heavier whereas the Lethal 90 is lighter but less powerful .
    My review might be wrong though cos i dun feel comfortable with the strings i had on now , which is apacs slayer 66.

    I prefer the slayer 88 racket, it is slightly headheavy, and it can deliver smashes easily.
