    Go for the APAC tantrum 200/300. The Tantrum series and the Lethal series from APACS are the best rackets they have ever produced. Tantrum's are more for all-rounders which fits your descriptions while Lethal's are more head heavy and suited for single games.

    i was thinking of visible hollow 1800 or this... Tantrum 200 was too expensive.. i am just a teenager =.= Because of Virtuoso 50 is new and eye catching and visible hollow is quite expensive than virtuoso... so i decided to go to virtuoso... but not sure whether good or not... no ppl have this racket... hard to find review or ppl had experience with this racket

    I just bought a tantrum 200 racket in Singapore for the equivalent of RM 250. I think you should really look around different shops or go straight to a APAC DISTRIBUTOR STORE for the cheapest price. and yes, guaranteed this racket is good.

    Virtuoso 50 is a very light racket (probably 5U, around 77 gram) with high balance point. Your previous racket (armortec 900 clone : nano 900 ?) is heavier in weight but have lower BP. I think virtuoso is good for you.

    My previous racket is fake armortec 900 not nano 900 and I like smashing... I think my previous racket is 4u.. if I used this racket, will it give me more explosive smash together with good drop shots, clear and netting ??

    i like 2 of those specs but lethal 15 seems to be too flexible in 9.5 and two of those racket looks boring... -.- any other good rackets? other brands also great, but must in my budget

    I like smashing because my smash is very good... but now my racket kinda have prob like cant generate power with my fake amortec 900... so I wan thinking of buying new racket to make my smash more and more explosive... I also think that the racket is too light to smash... because the lighter the racket the power of smashing less.. I think 4u is perfect for me... but dono wanna choose wat racket In my budget

    an user friendly racket, fast, light, flexible.....the only cons i think is precisions, maybe cos its flex

    I owned Lethal 12. Printed flex but not really. I would like to say medium.
    this is slightly head heavy and 5U. No issue with smash and defense is good too.
    one of the reason I could think of is the frame is smaller than Yonex racket that help generate the power for smash.

    i hope Apacs has more head heavy version of L12.
