And actually, some of your comments I totally agree with. My Yonex, Kason and Victor rackets are superior in performance to my Apacs - the point I try to make is that it comes at a cost, and with Yonex a high cost. I also understand your point about 'feel' - this is MUCH more important than technical jargon and marketing hype . I'm glad that we can find agreement here - however, please don't damn others who 'feel' differently about these rackets.
By the way, you don't mention the model of apacs you are talking about ??

For instance, you have to put extra effort into hitting at 28 pounds. that could be a technique problem. don't worry, there are some badminton players that have it as well. it could have been to tight for you. what do you usually string at.
Don't assume because you have strung it tighter, you will gain more control. In fact, that could screw up the feel even more.

Don't comment on how bad or how good a brand or racquet is until you have the competency in badminton. If you can't understand equipment standards, keep your thoughts to yourself. Yonex has to regain all those money they put into advertising, thus the high price. Apacs is not doing much advertising (I actually have never seen one), therefore, lower price.
Da a little more RESEARCH before commenting. Useless comments will only make you look rather silly.

??? badminton Racket
Interesting arguments .. here
Apacs has too many models. Apacs has to take care too many Different type of customers. tight buget, money is not issue, everything has to be new, play once in a while, always look good...etc.. That's why we have about 200 models.
Every badminton racket manufacturer can manufacture "PRO" class racket. Racket technology is not rocket science. Even rocket science.... China can make their own rocket... North Korea, India have their own nuclear weapon.
Lin Ning just bought out Kason and China team won everything in Surirman Cup. Korea team in second using Victor.....Everyone saw how Lin Dan(using Li-Ning) beat LCW(YY as usual) again.. Korea another outstand team. We can't say Li-Ning or Victor racket beat YY racket. Lin Dan using Victor before when he was in Junior team in China.
In the journey of searching a workable racket for yourself. Open yourself to every brand and technology. You really need to try before you can believe what you can do with it.
Look at the Tennis and Golf world... Do they have only 1 SUPER BRAND? The market is much bigger than badminton so... all the brand just invest on marketing.... YY do have tennis racket and golf club. How come they can't rule those sports....
By the way, Apacs Hong Kong web-site launched recently...... check it out

Sorry, i m new here. I m searching for a racquet myself now. However, i realised that Apacs model's rhymes so much like Yonex's. E.g. Arc Saber 10 and Edge Saber 10. Why like that?
Seems like Apacs is trying to save marketing cost by rhyming their products close to Yonex's product. How come there's no control?
Sorry if i offend anyone here, i new to badminton and this forum.

May i know what do you mean by "APACS originals"? You mean APACS got non original products??? Please advise, i m trying to get myself a pair or two rackets.
Do you mean APACS copy some other product's design, appearance and so on? That's stealing! Issit that piracy? No wonder i always see people here saying that APACS got low cost, cos i guess they have no R&D cost and they leech on to others advertisement and marketing. This is killing the sport! Disgusting! Pui! Will not get myself a APACS products.
When you say "I'm not saying that they are better than Yonex", are you implying that Yonex is better? Please advise, i m trying to get myself a pair or two rackets.

hello Jolene81, "APACS originals" are the racquet lines designed by themselves -> mostly Tantrum, Visible Hollow, Lethal, Furious...I've got myself a Visible Hollow 1800.
the non-originals would be the clones of other brands...their paints look quite similar to the big brand racquets...but plays differently, technology maybe just up to a standard racquet's e.g. no special features...just a fairly standard racquet. need the other BC Apacs fans to verify this. These are for budget tight players. I got 2 of these as my 1st racquet purchases (the Edgesaber 10 and Nano 1900 Speed).
