    I am surprised people are claiming that the AVP has a head-heavy balance. Directbadminton.co.uk measure all there rackets independently and designate it headlight at 295mm exactly; comparable to the Nanoray series. I have ordered two myself and really looking forward to use them. The only downside is that I will have to wait a few weeks for them to arrive.

    I think the rackets feel mid balanced to me, the only downside is they are a little stiff for my taste. If anyone wants one or a pair I could be persuaded to part with them because I have loads of rackets at the moment.

    I own it and it does feel slightly head heavy with 295mm bp. This is with double grip. I took off the original grip and put some yonex stuff on there at its 305mm BP last I checked now. I have the nanoray 750 and for comparison and both with single grip the Nanoray is noticably more headlight then the AVP. Or in other words AVP with double grip = Nanoray 750 with single grip making them both slightly head heavy. Nanoray with double grips feels like it is slightly headlight.

    But yea good overall racket with a powerful smash. I'm going to sell off my other rackets as there is no need for them. If the AVP breaks it's very cheap to replace as well.

    I did sent the broken racket back to Sportshorizon in M'laysia and managed to get a new one sent back
    Now I have strung it at 28lb with NBG98 and the smashes are amazing. Hopefully it doesn't break on me again ...

    I prefer the feel of a thin grip so I will use a single layer of Super-grap with a 50% overlap (like LCW). It's interesting that you use the NR 750 as a comparison since Yonex rate it as there second-most headlight racket. I should receive my rackets in the mail very shortly. I have never owned an APACS racket but everyone who owns one seems to swear by them. I have always used Ashaway rackets in the past but I felt it was time for a change. How does the build-quality of the AVP compare to NR 750, one of Yonexes top models?

    I'll be getting one next month! So excited. Been a while since I've gotten a new racket. Will be interesting to compare it with my other Apacs rackets. (i use the Tantrum 300, Armor Muscle Pro 90 and Lethal 100)
