    Hi!
    This is more of an opinion thread. Most of you are all praise about the AVP (Apacs Virtuoso Performance) but in an effort to be impartial, I just wanted to see how it compares with the rest of it's own lineup (like the Finapi, Stern, Visible Hollow, Lethal, Senusuous serie etc).

    I just wanted to know, from those who know or have tried the APACS lineup, which apacs racket is the:
    a) most head heaviest? ---->
    b) most stiffest (shaft) ---->
    c) heaviest (shaft + frame whole)? ---->
    d) toughest OR most durable material? ---->
    e) handle most string tension --->

    Thanks a bunch :)

    I just bought this racket from AJ puchong and played first time. IMO this racket is head heavy but medium flex. I feel satisfied with this racket and initially i am looking for my voltric 70 replacement, and the seller recommend this me to try it. I checked the specs of this racket and bp is 290.

    What makes me wonder is, when i survey apacs racket, i found apacs lethal 188, and it is also a head heavy racket. Not sure if this is a new lethal racket series, but its quit heavy and stiff. The price is also very affordable.

    I feel it quite stiff but if compare with price i dont think it is stiff like slayer 99. I think the flexibility is 8, bp is 290++. Not sure about frame whether it feels vibrated when u hit the shuttle

    Hi all, glad to be back on the forum!
    I've recently returned to the courts after a two year break. Before that, I played two years in my university's team, mostly doubles, using the T300. Is it still one of Apacs' best doubles racket? Or should I consider something else? I read good things about the AVP, how would you compare it to the T300?
    Thanks a lot!

    Not sure how i can compare it with t300 as i do not have t300. For second time i played with AVP i find it the shuttle always hit the frame, not sure why, but when i use li ning ts50, i played it better cause li ning TS 50 is head light racket. Probably because i am not used to AVP yet, but the racket is heavier than my TS50.
