    Sounds a bit too light. Maybe the Superlight 2 is better?

    Stringing a 69g racket at 30lbs sounds a little optimistic to me - I think it's safe to say you wouldn't want to mis-hit... ever.
    I'd like to try one just out of curiosity, but I wouldn't have high hopes for it.

    Imagine your opponent send a baseline clear to you. Your racket so light.... You hit to clear with all your might but your shuttle only travel to your opponent's mid court, and he can easily smash it down. And it happens over and over again. That would be so sad.

    Thats true....i've tried 1 7U racquet from apacs as well, couldnt really clear far and generate the power....basically the racquet doesnt help u with certain shots except defense....i like light racquets, but i think 4U would be juz abt right, anything lower would be difficult to play with in a sense

    l have never tried the Feather 200 but l do own Feather 100 (it's 6U and strung at 22)

    From my experience...
    lt seems not to generate as much power for the clear and smash at the rear court (that's how l feel when making the shot)
    But...
    lt's really awesome for fast play at the front court... drive/netplay/intercept...
    l think because it's so light that you can control/maneuver it with such speed...

    Already test my Apacs Feather Weight 200 with BG66 25lbs yesterday. Totally agreed with livewire, lack of power to clear and smash from rear court, maybe I should lower my string tension to 22 or 23 lbs (Any opinion?) . Other than that, the racket is easy to control especially at the front court. Yesterday I really enjoy my netplay and can return the ball more easy when opponent smash. My shoot is more accurate coz I can control the racket easily. Since I already owned Armotech which is head heavy, I really can feel the different.

    Maybe I should try it for one or two more session so can get used to it and adding power to my rear shoot.

    Rite now I strung the racket with BG66 at 25lbs. If I change the tension to 22-23lbs, would it give me more power to clear from rear court? I like the racket coz I can control it easily and enjoy returning the opponent smash ..

    Ive bought mine couple of week ago and srung it with Nanogy 98 at 26lbs.....i can return to opponent baseline but it take a great deal of effort doing it (forget about back hand tho')..but since i play double and my partner always like to play at the back this racket suit me very well....my net play is awesome and defending smashes was a breeze...it feels almost like the racket moves on its own...i rate this racket as a very defensive rackets......doesnt have raw power at all.......

    If I lower the string tension, would it give me more power to clear from rear court? and what string should be the best to suit situation like this?

    Yes it would give you more power. If it gave you enough, I don't know. I'd use BG66Maxima or NGY98 to maximize pure power at 23lbs. A racket that is this light is not meant for offense. It is meant for pure pure defense, and relying on your opponent to give you your points. The idea is that your defense becomes so good, there is no longer a need for offense.
