    Saw this racket in Queensway shopping centre. Try a few air swing but notice that Tantrum 500 is a medium stiff flex. Not Stiff flex as T200/300. I've used T200 before and like the stiffness and hope to hear from fellow BC forum bro to give a field report before deciding.

    Just wondering why apacs max string tension is so high, 38 lbs ?. With just the 30T material ?.
    Other brand which use even 40T or more (+other reinforcement material : titanium mesh, etc) is not that optimistic

    ok,conclusion,
    the racket is superb good,the smashing is as easy as my SW37,BUT power is less abit than SW37( i will try take out the original grip next time,currently use ori + replacement grip LOL)
    the medium stiff shaft help me a lot,(that's why i sell my Tantrum200 last time,its vibrate a lot and my arm hurt everytime!)
    sweetspot a.k.a g-spot bigger than SW37(i like this one :) )
    when defence ,the racket act quicker than my SW37,i like this one too, :) (maybe because it lighter than Sw37)
    i strung the racket with BG66Ultimax @ 26lbs + karakal PU Tribe,

    emm,that's enuff or not >.<
