After wanting it for a couple of months, i just got the Apacs Lethal Light 1.10 last week.
Im not sure if it has been reviewed before, but after 1.5 hrs of testing here's what i found:
1. The racket is slightly head light. Its surely a doubles racket
2. I was curious particularly about its weight. It turns out it weight 76.2 grams without grip or string. I measured it using digital jewelry scale. Some claim that LL, along with a few other Apacs series, are the lightest racket ATM.
3. Paint and design wise, nice and shiny but look a bit cheap. Cant complain
4. Playability; the best defensive racket i ever use. Its better than Yonex NS9900 for defense because its so light, i could not feel much effort moving the racket around.
5. Flex and control; Its a medium flex IMO which provide nice control for drops, serve/smash return, net play etc. In comparison Yonex NS990 is very stiff which i think was designed to provide a greater power
6. Durability; So far so good, but i will not predict that it will outlast Yonex built quality. Also the fact that its so light, Im not quite sure if it will stand a higher string tension (currently i think mine is no more than 26lbs)
7. Value for money: Absolutely!! Its less than one third of high end Yonex, Li Ning, etc. I have not found any racket with better quality than this (or Apacs brand in general) at USD45, weldone Apacs.
I would certainly pick LL 1.10 for social and friendly matches but not for competitive matches. I recommend this racket for non-smashing double players.

p/s: Kenichi Toga (Japan) almost beat Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia) by using Z-slash design . However, experience do make difference...

What would be good, is that Apacs could make an official and up to date website with all their products.
Every shop has different stuff from Apacs and there is nowhere a place where you can see the entire catalog.

APACS - where to buy?
At APACS CANADA USA the price is unrealistic, even promotion does not make them cheap. Their packaging was very bad. No protective padding were used. Instead the news papers were used as cushioning.
Later I bought several rackets from Andrew (racket_sports at ebay). Prices were very reasonable. I saved more than 50% with custom strings. I addtion he was very prompt in replying to any of my questions and concerns, and he did an excellent job of packaging. As you can see I am impressed and so do my badminton colleagues: all are happy with his products.

but a 4u , 285+3 mm L70 , that would be a beast in both doubles and single, I would love to try it out. By the way L70 would only come to life if you string it above 24lbs as I just found out ...it is much more powerful than the legendary AMP95
