    To be honest, I don't expect the cloned versions of the rackets to be as good as the originals, the specs just aren't the same. But that's not to say APACS doesn't have its own great rackets. I'm sure if you compared Apacs with an equally-priced Yonex/Victor, the Apacs would be much better.

    When we look at Apacs' own line like the Slayers, Lethals, and Tantrums (just to name a few) we can get a better idea of what they're capable of. And just as in every quality line, there are some good and some greats.

    I just hope that no one is denouncing the entire Apacs brand after trying only the clone rackets. Try something like Slayer 88/99, Lethal 60/70/90, Tantrum 200/300/500. Even the Lurid series have been known to be good.

    Yonex/Victor rackets are obviously not that much better than other brands, if you're just going by the cost. Why? Because a lot of that money does go into things like marketing, tournament sponsoring, player sponsoring, ads.

    Just a few of my thoughts.

    I am back with my APACS VH2000/VH1800 after using the Voltrics (80 and ZFL) for nearly 9 months. Well, I have to say that the performance of VHs are not like ordinary rackets. With a $60 price tag, I think I get more than what I paid. Anyways... I will go back to the VTs after re-stringing, but I will keep my APACS as back ups.

    Agreed - after playing with both the finapi 88 and lethal 9, the finapi has definitely become my weapon of choice for now

    Totally agree. Besides, Yonex and Victor rackets don't necessarily last longer than the Apacs. So, just go for substance, rather than style

    Look at your string tension. If too high is reason u cannot clear properly.

    agree with Kiloo...
    another reason maybe because of your technique or your arm strength....
    you can see any coach to see how you play, maybe your technique not correct....
    arm strength also important in badminton, plus AT50 is a head heavy racket, so it demands more strength than head light racket.....

    Hi Enuun,

    Without being condescending, it sounds like it is not the racket, but that you need to develop your technique and power first - work on hitting the center of the strings each time. If at present you re only managing half-court clears, then no racket will make a huge difference really just yet. Give it another few weeks and practice hard. When you have sufficient technique and confidence to perform the basic strokes, then it's be a better time to decide what racket is best for you

    Thank you all for the replies.
    I guess the miracle racket is not yet invented haha.
    I will work on my training definitely
    But I would also like to know whether the armortec 50 is a suitable beginner's racket.
    I am quite taken by both Apacs' price and its quality and would like to get one to aid in my progress too =)

    to be honest, armortec is not for a beginner because it is head heavy racket...
    plus, armortec 50 is stiff which makes it worse for a beginner because a stiff racket requires strength to bend the shaft when hitting and requires a good technique to hit the shuttle on the centre or the shuttle wont travel as you like....
    try to gain some strength and train your technique with a coach or someone who is good.....
    armortec range is good for people who like to attack and smash.....

    I see lighter head, flexible shaft and lesser tension
    I will be looking at some rackets that meet these requirements.
    In the meantime, I will focus on technique and strength-building.
    Thank you!

    i suggest you to look at Arcsaber 001 and 002.....
    both of them are even balance head and flexible shaft, perfect racket for beginners....
    they also quite cheap....
    or if you want medium shaft, you can try Arcsaber 003....
    have fun in your badminton journey...
