    TLE and LLSp were my first 2 rackets from APACS. I broke both of them from their wooden grip by constantly hitting hard smashes. I fixed the TLE with EPOXY and also got some wood grip as replacement. Amazingly both of them can give hell lot of power - I mean really power full smashes. Still I use the TLE, this is one of the best racket to execute excellent deceptive shots in singles game. TLS and LLSp are very fast and TLE is also very stable. The new TLE is much better choice than Lethal single-digits rackets.

    I am think to get a Slayer 99 or Victor SW36 or 37... Currently own a Lethal 60, thought to get a racket where I can play for all time.

    Lethal 60 is great in generate powerful smash, but it is stiff and not so responsive in defense.
    please see the review of slayer 99. this racket is 2U so it's really heavy. i have recommended and sold slayer 99 to my friend, so far he's liked this racket and his skill has improved a lot too with this racket.

    No. I have stopped buying light rackets after breaking two of them from the wood grip. Heard that SL is more head heavy. The TLE is good in term of stability. Now I see that MBS is selling Tantrum Light Infinity, the new version of TLE.

    APACS dont need a copy. The lethal 60/70 and even 90 are at least as good in my opinion.

    Can the smashes from these light rackets be more powerful than your visible hollows?

    Okay, played with the 3U VT80 for 1 hour pretty much non-stop tonight (all doubles games). Really glad I didn't get a 4U, as the racket felt light for me already. Sure, it felt super head heavy with dry swings, but in-game (with adrenaline pumping hehe), it felt fine. Played with a different group of people, about intermediate-advanced level (they are overall better than my usual crew). It wasn't long before they commented that my smashes were very powerful (even though they could take a lot of them, they often lifted a bit too short and either my partner or myself would finish it off nearer the net). Really like the overall feel of the racket. Contrary to what people say, it's a very fast racket too. Seriously, it's all about technique and adapting to the specs of the racket. Didn't get any "wrist pain", "shoulder pain", or got "tired because it's a demanding racket" the entire night. Who knows, maybe I might have if I played the entire 2 hours with it, but I doubt it. In my opinion, those who get pain or find it too demanding simply don't have good technique/fitness.

    So why didn't I use it for the entire 2 hours? Well, I had to directly compare it with my apacs Lethal 70 and Tantrum 300. So which racket was the winner? The answer is none. All three rackets are amazing. If I had to pick one, I'd still go for the Lethal 70. My smashes were just as fast, if not faster with it tonight. One thing I noticed was that after using the VT80, I felt that the Lethal 70 was an even balanced racket (not head heavy at all!). I think my swing speed was slightly faster with it when I smashed, hence the reason for maintaining powerful smashes. The same goes with the Tantrum 300.

    However, I think once I get more used to the VT80, I should be able to get even more powerful smashes. Time will tell though. One thing is for sure, the VT80 is an excellent complement to my current apacs rackets. It plays differently and is very enjoyable to use.

    Good to hear that you got the VT80. I think APACS's fan would like to hear which rackets is a winner or a more detail review. Why VT80 is an excellent complement to your APACS rackets? What is missing in your current APACS rackets? Can you be more specific?

    I asked you before that from where did you buy your L70 + 300 for $158. I have not got any reply. I am interested to buy them. Can I get the reply? or it is a hush-hush deal!

    I can bet with TLE you can generate as powerful smash as that of from any other head heavy power rackets including VHs. You need the fast swing and perfect hit at the sweet spot to do that. So wrist action is very imp with TLE. But clears are not that easy. There the VHs wins.

    I don't think there are any apacs rackets with a balance point of over 300mm. The VT80 plays quite differently to my T300 and L60/70. Being an "advanced-level amateur", this is good fun for me.

    Check your PM with regards to the L70 + T300. I don't think you'll be able to get such a good deal again though.

    i own a FW 100 (76g)- BG66 Ultimax @ bout 22-24lbs, stock grip + overgrip
    need fast full swing, decent clear, decent smash once you time it right, responsive defense

    was in doubt in getting fw100 / fw200, in the end took fw100 instead since i was previously using fischer x-lite (79g), i would be interested in seeing how fw200 plays being the lightest racket ever made, do you play in subang?
