sorry to bump in , so how do u find the stern 300 over all? the shaft stiffness, balance, etc....
comparing it to models like tantrum 300 , lethal 70 what is it like ?
03-25-2010, 10:02 PM #2603
L70 and T300 are really stiff compare to S300, but both of the rackets are more heavy while S300 are lighter, that is the difference i found.

L50 I have only tried in the shop and never try in the game.
I'm using Stern 300 as my main, it suite for my style, and backup is Saber10, all rackets i have chosen are more lighter racket, I'm actually looking for a Ultra Stiff racket but in a very light weight, still cannot find any to replace my S300, so continue to use it at this moment and quite satisfied.

Hey, I have been hearing a lot about Tantrum 300 and Lethal 70 and they seem to be great rackets, but what about the other models of Apacs such as Visible Hollow? Can you guys explain more about those other rackets? Since I have also heard that Apacs is pretty much clones of Yonex, what would the equivalent or similar models of t300 and l70 be for Yonex? Also, I have heard that you guys say the Nano 9900 is the same as the Yonex NS 9900, but I do not see that on the page, I only see Nano Pro 9900, is that the same? Anyways, I am planning on buying the t300/l70 deal for $200. Is that a good choice?

i'm not sure which YY series can be compared with Tantrum and Lethal but i know there are nothing from YY which can be compared with the VH series..as in the hollow shaft
Apacs clone are never the same with YY..they even play very differently
T300/L70 package is definitely a very good deal
i always envy baddy players in US and Canada
Apacs there always have packages with good prices
there's no such thing in Msia
although we can get both for less than RM500(equiv to US$150+- :P)

VH - Best to Anti Shake Effect due to the special design shaft, it can increase the accuracy.
VH, Stern, Lethal, Tantrum are not clone unit, but some others APACS products are clone from YY but different spec as mentioned by ziggy. However, you can refer previous thread to get the review of each racket, but i will suggest you to try it out before purchase any if you are not sure which 1 suitable for you.

Wow, thanks for your fast reply and clearing everything up! Is the VH series any good? It seems like the tantrum and lethal series are quite good as that is all you guys talk about. lol I have now heard many people tell me that the package is a really good deal so I will probably end up getting it. As for you getting it cheaper, that is awesome! You can get the rackets for about $75 each and that shows how good Apacs is as they have such high quality for such a low price! Though, I guess Malaysia is similar to Hong Kong, as in everything else is cheaper too, right? Also, isin't this brand originated from Malaysia? Anyways, thanks for your replies!

@ loneboy62, see that is the problem, I do not even know if there are any stores in the Toronto area that carry this brand even though they ship everything out of Markham, which is in Toronto. If they did, it would be much better for me as I would not have to pay the shipping and handling fees. Oh, one more thing. Is the Stern series not available in North America? I do not see anything about it on the website.
03-27-2010, 02:02 PM #2614
but quality control wise :S
i've seen a lot of off-spec apacs..even their own series
not EVERYthing is cheaper :P
i saw very cheap ori yonex grips on ebay
it's half of the price that i can get here
yes it is a Malaysia originated brand..i'm happy that they made it this far
03-27-2010, 02:26 PM #2615
So you are pretty much saying it is a gamble to get an Apacs racket?

Honly in Johor even provides a weighing scale for buyers to scrutinise the rackets they pick.

Well, what is the chance of getting a flawed racket then? I mean, I am putting $200 into two rackets and that is a lot of money to waste if they are completely useless as money does not exactly grow on trees for me. Well, when you guys say there are flaws in the quality control, what exactly do you mean? How bad can they get? Would it be as bad as making the racket feel completely different, or is it just really minor defects? Anyways, if I DO end up with a really flawed racket, wouldn't I be able to send it back for a replacement or something since it is their fault, not mine?
