    they seem very hot =] but i wanna know if their good performance wise

    price shouldn't be a matter because i've been looking at their site at the nanopower series and there all below 100 dollars

    i was just wondering, which racket should be best for me

    i am looking for a racket similar to at700s and 900s

    APACS is AWESOME! :) Although 900 white doesn't play like the AT900T. It's a bit more flexiable and lighter so easier to swing. I heard L50 is a good racquet.

    how bout nano pro 9000?

    l50 seems too expensive

    btw, are these rackets comparable to yonex?

    would like an l50 be better than an AT500?

    900 white is light? apparently the apacs 900 nanopower (clone of AT900P) comes in a white and red color, hence is not really suppose to play like AT900T. Furious 900 is clone of AT900T, but i think not really similar. also being 4U, a lot of the apacs rackets feels quite similar :p

    I've never been an apacs believer until last Sunday. They are surprisingly good for their price range. I used the 900 nanopower (I think? Well the clone of the 900P which I use), and it's surprisingly similar. Although the way the racket moves is more similar to the AT700. However, I find the lifts much harder to do and end to end clear isn't as powerful (same tension & string).

    what's your price range and style of play? do you like stiff/flexible, power/manueverability?

    Go for Nanospeed 9000 or the apacs equivalent with BGY95 tension. If your wrist isn't strong enough yet, go for the S :). I havn't tried the 9900; but the 9000 is good, I can assure you! (I have the X and ocassionally use it to defend).

    Try their own flag like VSH or AMP or Furious, they feel and play better then the clone series :D

    you are 14. get something that is affordable but you think looks good. the olympic dragon model looks pretty decent. and it's only $68. it's the arc10 equivalent i think. honestly, apacs isn't going to play the same as yonex. but unless you are hardcore professional, it shouldn't matter.

    if you're a beginner, there will be plenty to improve performance on a personal level before you need a "better" racquet

    I have no idea what the equivalent is lol. But google the picture, and find apacs that looks exactly the same as it (as the YY clones look 99.95% similar lol). On the contrary, why not go for the EdgeSaber 10?

    P.S. Why do badminton rackets have such cr*p names? lol. I mean cars sure sounds better (Vanquish, Phantom), or football gear (Predator, Fevernova).

    i doubt it, the racquet is cheap already. don't think he'll string for much cheaper. also, the olympic versions i mentioned are infact edgesaber 10s. just with different paint job. honestly, stick with something cheap for now until you really know what you want. it makes no sense to get a racquet to help you do clears... you really won't know which racquets are good or bad until you've played for quite awhile. just stick with something and improve technique-wise. 4U racquets take a lot of wrist motion and technique to generate good power... which is probably why you find those racquets as "bad".

    when all said and done, no racquet is going to help you with your shots if you can't even get to the bird in time because of a lack of footwork...
