    Hi
    I have brought from them several times and rackets arrive quickly considering they are from Malaysia and are well packaged. Whilst the apacs rackets may look the same as their yonex equivalents they will usually play differently but are still good value for money and their stringing service is nice. Also check their Ebay shop as it can be cheaper.
    Hope that helps

    I've bought off them on ebay. They've always been very helpful and always willing to answer questions.

    All my enquiries were responded well by them. Finally I bought ProSpeed Alien V1. Fast service. Packaging well.

    I am just a recreational player. I am not using high end racket previously but try few of my friend's racket. And I am not very sensitive to give comprehensive review.

    ProSpeed was recommended by a friend (he is tournament player at club level and graduated from national badminton academy). He said that 'if you want cheap racket but same performance and quality with other reputable brand get ProSpeed'.

    Recently I bought ProSpeed Alien V1 string with BG66UM. I play double most of the time. It's a balanced racket that suitable for attack and defense. It's a 3U racket which I am comfortable to make pretty fast swing.

    It has been 1 month now. All the way around, with this racket I have improved my my smashes, drives and backhand (note that technique must correct). The racket is my new baby.


    See ProSpeed page. There will be more racket coming out soon.
