    Hi,

    After reading all the great reviews on the visible hollow 1800 Ive tried to get one and can only find apacs canada with stock.

    However during my search I have been told next month I will be able to get the visible hollow 2000! this sounds good! Has anybody had a chance to see one yet or know how similar it will be to the 1800?

    Yup, the VH2000 is here already (in Malaysia) . I got mine for RM210 with BG6 and Karakal PU Grip. Can't wait to try it out!

    I just buy it last month @ Chiang Siah Store bangsar

    APACS Visible 2000 + bg66 + Grip + bag = RM230

    Excellent for attacking. Less vibration. good feel.

    The difference between VH2000 / VH2020 could be due to different countries. Is it possible that in SG the VH2000 is marketed as VH2020? VH2000 dominant color is black, with uppper half of frame is maroon. I'll post some pictures soon

    This is one of those racket that I cant be playing with due to the weirdness of the hollow tube center of the handle (I just like convectional looking raacket --it is just me). I heard this racket is absolutely brilliant and in the same comparison with the Lethal 70.

    another thing that bugs me is those plastic support cap that are on some of the apacs rackets which suppose to reduce the vibration from the frame.

    Dont get me wrong , I love apacs products (especially the Tantrum 200 , Arm 95 , Lethal 70 mouth watering combination) but just find one or two rackets within the range abit strange.......

    Wicked looking racket (much better than the slightly bland VH1800 and its brothers), but I hope it wasn't factory-strung - look where the top knot is:eek:.

    I've seen many people that I played with them here in Terengganu, Malaysia have similar top-knot as like that picture ..... some in Indonesia as well.

    I tried this racket before, slightly heavy compare to others but very solid, if you like to have more power can consistently attack style, no harms to try on this, is a very good racket if this suite your style.

    One good thing i like is the anti vibration.

    i have not had too many sessions with it yet, but so far i found this racket is easy to use. there's hardly any vibrations if you misshit and power generation is easy...smashes are good enough to cause some problems for a weak player like me and for more powerful players will definitely kill off the point...:p

    its almost as stiff as the sw33p and fast drives are ok. the frame is as thick as the sw33p but it doesnt hinder its defensive capabilities. this racket doesnt feel hollow despite its namesake, when compared to the rest of Apacs' clones which give a hollow feel during play.
