Need recommendation for choosing Apacs racket
Good day everyone. I'm intermediate level player. Currently Im using Apacs Lethal 9. Everytime i use it, when i try to smash, i feels that it's vibration is too strong and it hurts my hand and no matter how hard i smashed, the shuttle speed is just too slow. So, im thinking that is it the racket is too flexible for me? the Lethal 9 condition is as follow:
Strung: Yonex BG80 @ 26lbs
Grip: I just remember it's from Fleet
Now, I'm thinking of buying either one of them (Apacs):
Any suggestion would be appreciated.

too much vibration => not clean hits.
no power => too stiff/ poor technique.

Hmm... i c... so those are the reason that im not a wristy player or do not have enough power? but when i use my yonex carbonex 8000 light, it is much more better and even more powerful. Any reason? Im sorry for being a noob here.

yeah, i found Lethal 9 too much vibration and lucky i had sold it to my friend. since you are intermediate player and like to smash alot then you should get Apacs Lethal 70. you will love it. Tantrum 200 is less power. for Tantrum 500, i still have it and quite head heavy so i don't like it. for Slayer 88, i haven't tried it but Slayer 99 is really powerful racket and even balanced too.

thx for your suggestion irwan, i also like the slayer 88 whereas for lethal 70, i need to see for reviews first. Between isn't that head heavy racket will also help in generate more power for smashing?

Just bought apacs lethal light power (max: 35 lbs), racket is very light weight and suitable for smash and net play too..
feel much better than yonex voltric 7.
Tension: 28 lbs (rampage 66 string)

i think Slayer 88 is even balanced racket and quite light only 4U racket. it is more for the all rounder player.
if you like smashing then you can't go wrong with Lethal 70, it is so powerful and so solid. there are so many reviews for lethal 70 in this forum and i have found a review from the below website. it is so informative.
they have the review for Tantrum 300, you may refer to it.
