The VH2000 is also easily 1 of the longest racket.

where the VH2000 stands among all?
what are the differences between APAC Nano 9900 and Yonex Nano 9900?

VH2000 is the first in the picture. APACS 9900 and YY 9900 are different in many ways. Exception that they are head light and looks the same.
Even the weight is already diff in the first place. They play different. In fairness, the APACS is quite nice to play too.

I cant rank this as No1 as I do not have strong arms and am only high beginner. But for intermediate, this should be very nice for them. The VH2000 though heavy overall but still can swing fast! The frame is very aerodynamic and makes a higher pitch sound when swung.
APACS 9900 not too much vibration but not enough power.... the APACS slayer 380 plays better than this apacs 9900.

Looks like VH2000 is a good racquet and I can consider it as a replacement for my VH1700. Thanks for the review.

Photo of three good racquets from APACS
It seems T200 is the tallest.

Hi guys, does anyone know if there is any genuine difference between the "Tantrum 300" and the "Tantrum 300UK"? According to the Apacs UK site, the Tantrum 300UK has a more head heavy balance point (click on "Specs" on the following site):
This is reproduced by a reviewer:
As you can see, the balance point for the Tantrum 300UK is 289 +/- 3mm, which is different to a standard Tantrum 300 which has a balance point of 285 +/- 5mm. Also, the Apacs UK site states that the Tantrum 300UK has a "Unique UK specification" to it. Does anyone know more about this?
Similarly, there is apparently a "Lethal 70UK", which is presumably different to the "Lethal 70":
You'll see that under "Specs", it states "NEW AND IMPROVED 76 gromet system for the UK". What exactly does that mean and does it really make a difference?
Regardless, if the above "Specs" are true, it sounds like the Tantrum 300UK is what I'm after, since I prefer a more head heavy racket. However, the Lethal 70UK sounds pretty much identical to the Lethal 70 to me. Anyway, will be interested to hear people's thoughts.

286-291 vs. 280-290. I would wonder if APACS has so much precise quality control over weight errors. My T200 has the same specification like that of T300 and was heavy before I put add a PU grip. I do not think there is any differences that can affect your game.

Just got an apacs tantrum 200 from AJ. I kinda suspect it's fake
Reasons: The warning "do not put under direct sunlight...blablabla..might CAUSED WARPED" has spelling error and is gramatically wrong! Caused warped? That is gramatically wrong if you would ask me and it's from apacs uk. And there's no superbrands symbol(not sure though whether the symbol should be with all apacs)
my serial : AP140104.
It's from a reputable shop and GOD please don't let it be imitation

logically, apacs racket is very cheap.. so i think no other company have appetite to clone they racket.. coz apacs racket already the clone one.. hahaha.. but not sure if some racket don't have super brand logo on it.. but all mine have it.. about error on warning, just consider it from old batch.. all old apacs racket line has crap warning.. and since T200 completely stop producing, just think it a old stock with some error..
04-12-2011, 10:33 PM #3942
"Do not leave in direct sunlight or excessively hot conditions as heat may impair the structural integrity of racket and cause it to wrap" state on my ES10 white and Wrex100.. but no warning at all at ES z spark..

ckk221191 : Same as my Apacs....and it disturbed me as well...i make an efforts to go to all badminton proshop in KL and ipoh to check the spelling on any Tantrum 200 i can get my hand on too...and all have it...so I believe u and me shouldnt be worried about it

By the way, I've just completed an order for a Lethal 70 + Tantrum 300 for $156 US dollars all up, including delivery. Good deal right? I should be getting them within a couple of days. I know several people were keen on hearing what I thought about the Tantrum 300, so I'll post a brief review soon.
