    They're not APACS branded, they're branded something else which I can't remember.....something very forgetable. Got to fondle one late last year.

    Let me clear some air on this. LCW has been making his "LCW" Racket Brand for sometime. This is
    definitely not new. Even Tan Boon Heong has his "TBH" Brand.

    So what happened to those rackets if you may ask. The players make those rackets for fun and not for
    tournament use. Sometimes as souvenirs to friends as they are not allowed to SELL any rackets or
    endorse their own brand since they are YONEX Sponsored players. If they do, they breach the contract and they will get sued.

    As on LCW is approached by APACS to make his own brand. I would say most likely yes but not for
    commercial reason YET. And he has also made his racket by other brands too.
    Anyway most of the 2nd tier brands are mostly OEMs. You can even make your
    own brand of racket if you want. If you can recall Jackie Chan has his own brand of rackets before.

    I've seen rackets strung with stringers (even factory stringing) going all the up to the last cross then coming back down under it.

    The stringer prob tied the knot after the 2nd last cross string. which makes sense if it looks a bit loose compared to the other really tight strings.

    Seems someone noticed it already from posts above.

    19 kg would be 41.8 pounds, what? Stringing tension limit?

    Apparently Yonex sees a potential there in the Z's head shape, they just have to find the right amount of tweaking to improve it.

    Then, the sport would be dead? I'm sure there will be a few who can handle the weight. Never mind head heavy, even balance or head light.

    I wonder what the metaphor is with the tyre, can it be run over while strung at 19.0 Kg.?

    I thought of that but a tyre flung would've a stronger impact than 19.0 Kg.

    In this case, Twitter will serve their purpose better than FB in this particular media promo.
