    Hi all,

    I'm looking at a new racquet, and finding it kinda hard to make a decision. The racquets that i'm looking at are:

    (1) Victor BS11
    (2) ZELM PP10000
    (3) APACS Tantrum 200/300

    I'm looking for a balance all-rounder i guess. Currently using the APACS L50, and looking for a possible replacement.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks!

    Why are you feeling the L50 being insufficient?

    while i like using the L50, i figured it is a bit too head heavy at times, and possibly to flexible?

    can't go wrong with a PP10000 if your are looking for a stiff balanced racket

    I have not tried the BS11 or the Tantrum 300 but the PP10k beats the Tantrum 200 (T200) in practically every department. The PP10k is faster and delivers a bigger punch than the T200. On top of that, the T200 is a bit shorter than the PP10k.

    I recall a time where I was constantly torn between the speed of the T200 or the extra punch of the PP9990. When my T200 collapsed, I kinda missed its speed. After switching to the PP10k in Oct, I would have sold away the T200 if it got replaced. I certainly do not use my PP9990 anymore.

    That said, the T200 does have a slightly bigger sweet spot than the PP10k though.
