    I current own a RKEP 9000 pro (Woven Ti) with these specifications:

    Weight: 86gr
    balance point: 295mm
    stiff 4/5

    I'm looking at Apacs but I don't know which to take. I need the same configuration in a dark color.
    Somebody can help me?

    I had the Tantrum 200 in the past and it was too light. The Lethal 60 gave me some pain in the front arm where other brands don't.

    I was in the same boat, owned a T200 (86g) but can't handle the HH and stiffness of L60, I found something in between, which is Visible Hollow, 2000/2020 88gr+-2, feel very stable, solid racquet, more power than T200, arero dynamic head shape for fast control.

    You're right since Apacs is quite cheap compared to other brands

    hi all,
    I'm now using Apacs Nano 900 Power but i found that it is too flex.
    Can someone suggests me a stiffer racket with the same balance point??
    Thanks a lot

    Not anymore I think. They now have models over $100. Quite a few to be honest

    I was advised to take 1 of these to change from my actual RKEP 9000 pro

    Apacs Foray 808
    Apacs Tantrum 500
    Apacs Lethal 110

    Can someone give me some feedback on those? I have a strong backhand and when I use a raquet that is too light the backhand smash is not good enough neither does my backhand clear. Do I also need a stiff flex or more medium?

    Hi guys! Just wondering is anyone using the Virtuoso Performance here? How is the racket? Compared to the Tantrum 200 / 300 and Lethal 70 / 90? Thanks in advance! :)

    Hi Mark,

    Have replied in your thread you created for Virtuoso's performance :)
    Guys, I need some help please....I have JUST bought a Virtuoso performance and Stern 800. Am a new member of the Apacs fan club and am really really surprised by the performance of these rackets...but...life is full of ironies... I now need help in identifying if the rackets that I have so lovingly purachased after 3 hours of toiling through yonex's and Victor's are authentic.

    I have posted the pictures under the section "Identifying fake rackets" in this forum. Could someone please help me with the same..It's 3:30 am and it feels like college all over again...those sleepless nights..not knowing what to expect next :)

    Hello Apacs lovers,

    I am interested in some of the rackets that Apacs offer, but I was unsure of which one to get. The website doesn't really show the differences between the rackets and they all seem so similar. I am looking for a racket that closely resembles a Li-Ning N90 II, my current racket. I am looking for an inexpensive spare and I would like it to be head heavy and also 3U. (Good looks preferred :D) I was looking at the Slayer and the Lethal series, would anyone like to input which model I should get? (give multiple options if you can, as I might not have the racket in my area)

    Thanks!

    Hi KK Lee,

    I did not tried N90-II before.
    However the closer racket I would say is:

    1) Tantrum 500 International
    2) Lethal 50, 60 or 70 (depend which model your country selling)
    3) Tweet 8000

    Happy buying~

    Hi kklee,

    I have a Li-Ning N90 II (although I don't play with it much because I prefer the N90) and several Apacs rackets (Lethal 70, Tantrum 300, Tweet 7000 International and Slayer 88). The closest match would be the Lethal 70 which I use as my cheap racket for doubles.

    You can find both Li-Ning and Apacs at Canuck Badminton in Scarborough: http://www.canuckbadminton.com/

    I hope this helps.
