    Hello Everyone,

    I am looking to buy Apacs racket since i don't want to spend too much at this moment. I found Apacs rackets with low prices on these two websites:

    www.acesmash.com or www.badmintonbay.com

    I just wanted to ask if anyone has purchased racket from the above website or not? If yes, then how was your experience in terms of customer service and product quality. I doubt the chances of Apacs being fake as some of you mentioned that it is not a very popular brand but when i compared the prices of Apacs Canada with these two sites, i found a huge difference.

    Any comment or suggestion will be very helpful for me.

    Thanks in advance !!

    Cheerz !

    Bought from BadmintonBay before. Ordered a nano 900 white and a nano 900 red. Communication was great, shipping was fast, and prices were low! The rackets are doing fine, although there is a slight problem with the nano 900 red. It's supposed to be even balance (285mm) but after feeling it was a bit head light we measured it and it turned out to be 270mm. Not sure if this was just apacs quality control or not.

    Definitely recommend buying from Badmintonbay!

    Vicky , Thanks for your comment. Yeah, i agree with you the communication is very fast with them. I asked them few questions and they replied within 3-4 hours. I compared both the websites and there is significant price difference between these two. I was wondering how come they are selling the same stuff from same country at different prices.

    I am bit confused where should i buy from but i really appreciate your help.

    Thanks.

    Just got a Nano 900 White from BadmintonBay on ebay recently. Service is quite good. Good communication too. Product wise, the racket came with a rattling sound but the seller responds fast with an alternative. Overall, its a decent experience. Will probably buy again in future.

    Hope this helps.

    @escape: I agree with you regarding communication, they are very fast.

    @Porky: I agree with you, i also had a hard time while i was trying to add something to my cart to see the final price but it does not work very well.

    Thanks for your feedback guys !! I have also decided to buy from Badmintonbay since most of the people are recommending them.

    Regards,
