hi, does anyone used Apacs Lethal 9 ? i just got myself one yesterday as recommended by shop owner at OUG for a racket under RM 200. It looks good and i got it for Rm 150 with BG66 string and Grip. I got it tension at 27 Lbs as its max tension is 35lbs.
however,i got it played last night and this were my experience :
1. My smashing was weaken.
2. My arm feeling abit of shivering due to the muscle strain which never happen before with my RSL 928. ( could it be the effect of the 27 lbs tension)
3. the great point is my Net ball is smoother and more accurate than before with RSL 928.
4. how could i improve my smash with it. ( should i reduce my the tension ?)
in need of ur expert comment on this racket.
here is the comment from badminton Bay Blogs :

Generally Apacs rackets are lighter plus also in ur case maybe you are used to the string tension (could be higher or lower). I suggest compare it with ur RSL (which i assume you satisfy with the specs) and try if you can copy the string tension (maybe getting it strung from the same stringer). As for the general spec, in comparison, a lighter racket moves faster whereas your RSL maybe is a head heavy racket which suits more for a wristy player.
To improve the smash with a lighter racket, use less wrist movement and a bit more swing.

i did get my fleet strung to the same tension and same string i used for my rsl heat 928 which i tot it was down to the string problem of the fleet racket. but unfortunately it was not, the money and affort was wasted on the fleet racket. the conclusion is : same string and same tension on different racket will not give u the same result u want.... from then i have throw the fleet racket one side. and now with the apacs lethal 9, im sure the same thing will happen if i go get it strung again..... that's y i just wanna gather some information here before proceed with it......
hope u guys do help....

For me, (i have mentioned this on other thread as well) i like to treat string and racket issue separately. First, i like to get the string tension right, so no matter what racket i use i know that my optimum string tension is 28lbs. Then the secondary issue is the racket spec it self, which in this case i can still tolerate between all sort of different specs.
So i guess, in ur case i would say that if you confortable with 26lbs then you should maintain it until your body says otherwise. As for the racket itself, its explainatory as you can find the spec easily and compare it to your prefered spec. Having said that, you are right the best way is to try it out urself.

in fact, i dun purpose request for tension of 26 ibs or what so ever, it was recommended by the shop owner. i myself actually got no idea which tension is suitable for me..... even for my apacs with 27 lbs also recommended by the same person.... i think im just trying my luck with what im equip with..... i havent try 21, 22, 23, 24 and so on..... no idea how they feel like... so, is there any tension most ppl would be suitable in general.....for example , professional player would generally go for what tension?
