    I'm thinking of getting a Apacs racket. Considering Edgesaber 10, Edgesaber Z slayer and Nano 900. Any review on these 3 rackets?

    Apacs nano 900 is a very good racket for the money, I have had all 3 colours and they were all very easy to play with. The ES10 lacked power for me but I didn't give it much playing time to get used to it. I haven't really used a z slayer.

    My vote goes to nano900. Got the nano900 (AT900P look alike). My favourite racket from apacs so far. Wet BP of 270mm with BG66, 24lbs, towel grip. Its a look alike and not even near. Anyway, its a racket class at its own. Once get used to it, it performs very well. Decent power on smash with good control at the net.

    Just restringed the T200 after so many moons and learning to get used to it. Have also got the ES10, Lethal 9, 9900(w/o "power").. also some rackets from yonex and victor too.
    ATM, I'm using nano900 and 9900 from apacs due to my shoulder injury.

    Apacs rackets are a good starting point to cure the BBB virus due to the prices for the replicas IMO.

    BTW, this nano900 caused my tennis eblow:mad: with reduce grip size, increased tension.... my fault.. hehe on 23 Dec 2011

    i got a nano 900 technique (the white version) ... very light .. durable and good... value for money i would say... tt is so far my best racket..u can get it cheaply at queenway shopping center .. personally i like white colour so i chose tt over nano 900P (red)... but it shouldnt have much differences... heard from people saying tt the red version is stiffer but to me they are the same...

    I didn't notice any difference in stiffness between the red, white or yellow versions. I have bought some if mine from badminton ace on eBay and they were good valuehttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/APACS-NANO-900-POWER-Red-Badminton-Racket-Free-String-/181067283201?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a28737b01

    May I know how much it cost at queensway shopping centre? Cause I'm planning to order online as I don't really have the time to go to shops to check the prices. And all those shops that sells rackets at cheap prices are pretty far for me.

    Any review on ES 10?

    I've bought a nano 900 white already. $74 including a yonex BG 66 string. maybe a bit expensive, but I think it's okay as I didn't have to travel far.

    really do consider the Lethal 90 or Tantrum 300...its really crazy....i read somewhere that another person said using these 2 rackets felt like he was cheating......its just so easy to use but yet so powerful and accurate.
