Yes, Kingskawn, the website looks nice, but I do wish that Apacs would update their website. Even if they do not want to do so, they could at least post a electronic catalogue like the YY brand.
Could it be their racket models are so prolific that the company has no time to photograph yet alone to write up or even market all the numerous models that they are producing at the same time? Well users of this brand are spoiled for choice

If u have a problem with shock absorption or vibration I suggest u try this: Weave a string on the bottom 4-6 strings keeping a slight tight. Weave for 6-10 levels within those strings at the bottom. It has a dampening effect.

I would like to purchase a new racket.
Since Apacs is being highly recommended here,
can anyone give me some guideline in choosing Apacs racket?
How many series their have currently?
What is the characteristic of those series?
And, I like Yonex nanospeed 9900 a lot, any apacs racket offer similar feels?
Thank you very much for giving me advice.

lethal - powerful smashing series [lethal 50/60,70/85/90/100]
tantrum - powerful even balance to slightly head heavy's series [tantrum 200/300]
slayer - covered all ranges (headlight to head heavy) [slayer 88/95/99]
visible hollow - special shaft technology to absorb vibrations [vh1800/2000,2020]
armor muscle pro - powerful smash? (not so clear about this series) [amp 300]
stern - light weight woven racket, good for double [stern 200/300,330]
lurid power - middle end racket from apacs, world 1st racket which can change the balance point.
dont know how the ns9900 play like, so can't give suggestion.
any mistake pls correct me~

Maybe the Lurid Power 23 would be close to NS9900 in terms of spec. The Lurid 23 is even to head light balance with stiff flex rating. I have played with both and the NS9900 does feel a bit more solid compared to the Lurid Power 23.

Lurid power is a strange line of rackets. Had the Lurid power 21. Worth its price..? definitely. But swapping out the weights didnt really have the effect you would think it would. Leaving the red cap at the end works well. Its rated as mid stiff... but its not really. Very easy to generate power. (due to mid stiff?? The description on the website didnt lie about this.. whip effect) Clearing was a breeze from base to base with no undue stress on arm or shoulder. Easy to smash. Its light, very easy to play with. Its also string dependent. Played terribly with high repulsion string like n98 but plays just right with lower end string. Go figure. Its less stiff than VT70, 80, YY 21sp. My net play isnt that great, so it worked fine for me, but a more advanced player would have a better opinion.
Maybe also first ever racket that made specifically for "standard" string.?? haha....
Anyway. Thats my take on it.
Have given it to a friend who hurt his arm on a VT70, but also like me, finds the Lurid Power 21 easy to play with and doesnt aggravate his injury.
that in itself says a lot.

Personally I find the clone Apacs nano 9900 power very similar to the YY NS9900 of which I used 2 before. I now have 4 N9900P. If u hv a chance to try out u can appreciate for yourself.
Concerning the 'series' and Characteristics, I will put it simply: Apacs has too many of both to be able to list here. Please read this thread throughout to get a good Idea.

Hey, I just tried my friend's Apac Lethal 9 strung at 28 or 26lbs which I forgotten but I'm definitely loving the feel.
It's just so easy to clear and generate so much power upon smashing.
I'm not quite familiar with Apac's racket so I would like to seek your guys advice on getting 1 of it.
Which of the racket is similar or better than the Lethal 9?
08-17-2011, 03:35 PM #4451
I mean Yonex racket which is similar to that lethal 9 or any Apac's racket that is better than lethal 9.
Sorry for the mistake.

Was using apacs amourtec 900 happily, thinking it as comparable to the YY real thing. All my believes crashed to the ground when I picked up the real YY. Anyway, the apacs 900 is a class of its own. I've got used to it, loved it and its still my "go-to" racket.
My point is: treat real or clones as its own. Learn to use the racquet. If it doesn't click, ditch it. Most importantly, enjoy the game.
