1. Old school Carbonex rackets (can't remember which ones exactly, but I used quite a few) - decent rackets to use back in the 1990's.
2. ARCSABER 7 (trying to sell this one right now) - didn't like it from the start.
3. ARMORTEC 700 (can't remember which version) - good head heavy racket that took me quite a while to adapt to.
4. NANOSPEED 9900 - good racket for doubles play, but I prefer a head heavy racket.
5. ARCSABER Z-Slash - difficult racket to adapt to, but decent power and accuracy once I did.
The two Yonex rackets I'd personally rate the highest are the ARMORTEC 700 and the ARCSABER Z-Slash. I know the VOLTRIC 80 has recently been released and gets amazing reviews all over - I haven't personally tried it, so I can't comment on it.
What I do know is that the apacs Lethal 60 is by far the best racket I've ever used. I'm yet to try the Tantrum 300, but I'm hoping it will be nearly as good as the Lethal 60 (and secretly hoping that it's even better!).
I'm not alone in thinking that (some) apacs rackets are better than anything Yonex has offered:
It feels "spot on", better than anything i have ever played with, and that includes all of the latest Yonex offerings, such as the Arcsabers and the Nanospeeds. It is better than all of them, by a long way.

I have heard that L60 vibrates? Do you feel that?

However, I suspect if you like the Armortec 700, you will also like this racket. The reviewer didn't like it much, and I think I can understand why - it takes quite a bit of time to adapt to such a head heavy racket if you are not used to it.

Okay, I have now tried out the Tantrum 300 and generally speaking, I find it even better than the already amazing Lethal 60/70. However, I'll need to mention a few things.
I decided to measure the balance points of my Lethal 60, Lethal 70, and Tantrum 300.
The Lethal 60 is strung with Yonex BG65 at 27 pounds, although I'm pretty sure it's more like 25. The Lethal 70 and Tantrum 300 are both strung with Apacs Slayer 66 at 26 pounds.
All three rackets have had the original grips removed. The Lethal 60 has some sort of Ashaway grip on it (quite thick). The Lethal 70 and Tantrum 300 both have some sort of thinner Apacs grip.
I already predicted that the Lethal 60 would be the least head heavy, given it had the thicker grip. But I didn't realise it was so much more head light! (I put a range because I don't think I was that accurate):
Lethal 60: 280-282mm
Tantrum 300: 288-290mm
Lethal 70: 292-294mm
Anyway, I've been playing with the Lethal 60 for over 1 year and I've found it amazing. However, so far, the Tantrum 300 is playing even better for me. I actually found the Lethal 70 harder to use, but I think it's all technique related (given that for me, it's quite a lot more head heavy).

APACS Grip Size.
I think APACS G2 is too narrow. Often I need to wrap an overgrip or PU grip on top it. Is this true for others? This increases overall weight by 6-13gm and changes the balance point.
