    Hi guys , there has been alot of talk about the similarity between the two rackets, therefore I decided to e-mail Apacs Canada and they replied ......

    [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']Yes, there is a difference on T200 and T300. T300 using higher compression pressure during manufacturing. It give racket higher density and it is a bit more heavier than T200. T300 usually stay at the high side of 3U, around 88-90gm. Max tension go up to 35lb instead of 30lb. That’s why it should not have 4U T300. [/FONT]

    Hopefully this will clear everything up for all the Apacs fan out there and I will soon be getting a T300 as well which I will gladly post my review on here.

    I want to thank Kam at Apacs Canada for being so helpful and for his speediness in responding enquiries , also this guy really know what he is talking about...

    That's why I did not try the T200/300, because they sold out of the T200 and the T300 is too heavy for my style.

    2-3g heavier is a huge difference especially affecting manerverability for doubles.

    the biggest difference should be the aerodynamic frame on L90 combined with lower BP compared to L70

    Hi there,

    I recently bought a brand new Apacs Tantrum 300 from Queensway Shopping centre for $105 inc BG66 strings. I suspect that they put the wrong label on the racket, as from the other shops, they were around $150. Oh well, my gain, but yes it's avaliable there.
