    Hey guys I'm about to buy a crazy good racquet deal (Apacs lethal 100 + apacs tantrum 989 shot for 110$ tax/shipping included brand new directly from apacs) and I was wondering if I should order them with their string. Right now I play a Lethal 70 with BG 66 ultimax at 26x29lbs. My question is which string could I use on the lethal 100 which would highly resemble the bg66um? Here are my choices:
    -Stern 9
    -Lethal 66
    -Slayer 66
    -Slayer 88
    -Lurid Power

    Essentially I want a thin gauge, high power/repulsion string that will last 3-4 weeks at 26/29

    I save 13$ per racquet if I have them pre-strung by apacs.

    Well guys I just bought 4 Apacs racquets. 2 x Tantrum 989 shot and 2 x Lethal 100. I strung one lethal and one tantrum at 26x29 with slayer 66 and the other pair at 21x24 with stern 9. I will post reviews of strings and racquets by January 6th since I will be getting back on a court only on Jan 5th.

    i tried lethal 66 and lurid power...it's similar to bg66um but not as good
    dun bother with the stern series.

    Damn...well for now I will have slayer 66 on the main one I will be keeping (might resell one and the other two are for other players who wanted me to order some for them) but anyways at 26x29 my strings tend to last tops 4-5 weeks (zymax 65 or bg66um usually)

    I'll post a review of the apacs strings I got anyways for future buyers like me :p

    I have the Slayer66 in one of my two main rackets and the Lethal66 in the other. I also wanted to try the Lurid Power.
    The slayer66 i realy like, have it strung at 28, still in after 4 weeks, and no sign of wear. Lethal66 i just had strung so not sure about durability. Cant get Slayer66 anymore in the Netherlands..

    I also play with lethal66 offensive and think its a quite nice string to go with. also on high tension above 30lbs > 15kg. Lurid power is even better. Only thing is that the apacs strings are hard to get.
    @Niev waar heb je de apacs strings gekocht?
