    i saw the apacs nano 9000 speed at my usual badminton racket centre. has a strikingly similar paintwork to the yonex nanospeed 9000. i need to know how it performs. i have been using a yonex muscle power 30 but it cracked recently:crying: i also have a masuka ms2.fyi masuka was once a wellknown racket manufacturer but went out of business.they recently started producing.mine is one of the new models. i play an attacking game.a lot of smashes n fast drops. please advise to anyone that has used the apacs nano 9000 speed:D

    It is towards head light and even balanced racquet, more suited for the all around and defensive game. I think it wont really suit you since you play the attacking game.

    I'm just curious??? Y head light racquets can't produce powerful smashes? We can swing the racquet a little bit faster compared to the heavier 1. Isn't that true???

    Yes and No.

    If one's strokes are correct, you should be capable of deriving powerful smashes from almost any rackets. Especially head light rackets (Arc Saber 10) with aero frame (YONEX AT-900T), you can really generate powerful smashes without draining out too much energy.

    Thanks.

    Subjective.

    It depends on your playing style. Some players like head light rackets, some preferred head heavy rackets. I would say it is a matter of habit. Personally, I don't really bother what YONEX advertisements say. Swing and feel the racket yourself, if possible take it for a 'ride'....

    Performance depends on individuals; if you have proper strokes, any good rackets will perform almost as well....

    APACS rackets are generally quite economical and durable...

    Thanks.

    ^ i have one, and it does not vibrate when i play, i usually pin down the racket on the edge of the table then press and let go of the head, if you look vertically you would observe if the racket is stable or not.

    shockingly all my high end yonex vibrates but my apac nano9000 does not.

    weight wise the nano9000 is a little light, but it does well in power/repulsion for some reason. why dont you give it a try it isnt that expensive in terms of a quality racket.

    Well the racket is going for a very decent price around 40 USD. I am still waiting on mine from KL, Malaysia. Bought it off Ebay seller name Racquet_Sports will let you know what I think of his service and racquets. :rolleyes:I hope they are legit..from what I read on here about him. I will keep you posted as soon as I try them.

    Hello hot rod,

    I own couple racquets mainly Yonex and Apacs. Recently got into Apacs because quality is pretty similar to Yonex(after putting in BG80 string and changing into Apacs PU grips*BEST GRIP EVER!!!*) I suggest you try APACS Lethal 70 from Apacs Canada. Should suit you as I am a very offensive player as well.
