    Lightbulb What's you favorite Apacs racket?

    Your favorite Apacs and why? I'm looking for a new racket, and I love using the AT900T. I need something that is similar to it, but a fraction of the price. Thanks!

    I like the control that I get from my Tantrum 300. It's very stiff, so not that suitable for long sessions at the court (for me, that is).

    Lightsaber, I bought mine in Jakarta when I was down there for a visit. Google a company called Buana Sports. It may be worthwhile asking them whether they can ship internationally if you're really interested. The owner can be contacted via SMS, and is generally very helpful and knows a lot about about badminton equipment.

    For me, I like both rackets of T300 and L70

    T300 - in comparison to L70, I find it a little more rounder, great for attack and defence
    L70 - more for attacking games (especially singles and those who likes to hit hard)

    For me, I like Lethal 70 and Tweet 7000. It seems like APACS is good with things starting with 7x..
    I also find Lethal 110 not bad.

    How would you rate L70 vs L110? I can't make up my mind which to get... Thanks

    L70 is definitely a powerful and solid racket. L110 is more aerodynamic and easy to maneuver.

    Thanks for you're swift reply. But in terms of stiffness & head heaviness, which is better? As I'm looking for a stiff +HH one. Just that I thought L110 is the latest in Lethal, so perhaps there's little new tech into it vs the older L70? Thanks again.

    Between these two, I would say L70 is more stiff and HH. But if you want to look for really HH, go for either Slayer 99 or Lethal 100. Both are quite similar with reinforcement at 12, 7 and 5 o'clock positions and they are really HH. You will feel it when you swing it. Note that L100 is woven. I once clashed it hardly with my friend's racket and it just suffered a very light scratch. Also I once swang it so hard that it flew off and bounced off the floor but I hardly see a scratch on it. I think it is too HH for me and I couldn't hold it tightly when I swang it.

    The T300 is very nearly perfect, but it's 3-4 grams too heavy.

    I can't really think of one that's akin to the 900T. The L70 is probably closest in terms of balance.

    Interesting choices! But, I want to further narrow my search for a more doubles play-style racket. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I use L70 mostly for singles and L110 for doubles.
