    Lethal 70

    Hi All

    Just wanted to clear up a few things on the Lethal 70 having now tested it!

    It is an exclusive racket for the UK, Americas and Singerpore markets. The UK ones are marked with the UK emblem on teh Shaft and handle butt.

    It can take tensions of 40Lbs plus, not tried 45 yet though!!

    For info it does feature the same double shaft as the 50 and yes you caut me I did use a couple of the old 50 photos but these will be replaces soon now we have the actual goods!

    In all its a very nice racket and comes in 3U, plays very well with tensions of about 28 to 30lbs and is very powerful. Look out on the Racket blog, we will have an independant review on there soon

    Regards

    Apacs UK

    I purchased it with 25 tension, really it is amazing racket for attacking as well as defense. It is made both for singles as well as doubles. Now it is my No.1 racket and Z-slash is No. 2.

    I would like to know any body tried RSL Diamond X3 Silver. Please give feedback.

    I am a doubles player and my skill is also more than beginner, when I ordered this racket I was thinking it may be cumbersome to play doubles in respect of quickness and headheavy. But after I received it and at the instant of my first play with this racket, I love it.

    You can not feel it is headheavy as well as it is also very quick responsive. Above all, it has beautiful smash capability.

    It is worth investing and I can say it is a solid weapon.

    Nice, I have never tried it before but I've always assumed its a singles racket, guess I'll give it a shot when I'm not broke :)

    I think Lethal 60 is for Malaysia. But I am not sure any difference between Lethal 70 and 60 ??

    I only can find 4UG2 version of Lethal 50, 60 and 70 in JB and SG. My friend is looking for 3U version. Coz i broke my Lethal 70 (4U) in first time playing, he think 4U is too fragile.

    Did u try weighing the racquets? I believe the '4UG2' sticker on the racquet is inaccurate.

    I agree, the 4U can be QUITE inaccurate, but right also. My friends T200 was 85 grams, right on the upper end of 4U, but my Apacs Nano 900 Power (both red and white) were almost 2U, each coming in at 91g without string and with original grip removed.

    I know some APACS rackets (the Tantrum 200) contain foam in the center to provide strength while staying light. I wouldn't be surprised if they forgot the foam in my rackets and made it pure graphite.
