Any reviews on the Apacs Slayer 95?
09-29-2012, 07:13 PM #5068
I heard about APACS recently and want to become a fan. Currently I am using Voltric Z Force, Armortec 900 and Arc z Slash of Yonex (I am offensive player) so could anyone please guide me if APACS has some versions that is similar ( around 80%/90%) to those racquets. Yonex is good but too expensive for me. Thanks a lot for your reply.

Lethal series are stiff and head heavy, similar to your VTZF, but as insanely head heavy as the ZF. Which AT900 are you talking about? Z Slash is special and I don't think any racket or clone can match its agility.

My AT 900 is AT900 power.
There are many lethal, lethal 50, 60, 8,9...ect (haven't heard or read about lethal 60/8/9 but I heard alot of good comments for lethal 50) so please tell me which one is closest to VTZF.
There're some people said series Tantrum is like Arcsaiber z slash of yonex but Im not sure and also heard a lot of good comments for Tantrum 200. What about Apacs EdgeSaber Z Slayer, is it good or bad?
Thanks for reply

Can somebody enlighten me in APACS LURID POWER 21, 22, or 23 ?? Which is better if compared to APACS NANO DRAGON 700? Lethal & Tantrum series are quite costly for my budget in the meantime, thus i'll just have to stick to either Lurid Power series or Nano series. (I wouldn't buy some APACS cloning rackets)
my play style; double, mostly smashes & drops with occasional clear, i've tried Voltric 80 3U but didn't like it since it's too heavy thus i'd prefer something with BP 290mm +/-3, shaft flexibility should be somewhat stiff (not like flexibility of Victor BS11, which ended up in my closet), i'd prefer isometric head-shape but other shapes are just fine, preferable weight 3U.
Please advise me. Thank you.

For me, I find the Lurid Power 21 and 22 are hard to get power out of (with the factory apacs string at 24lb), and these two feel pretty much the same.
The Lurid Power 23 feels more powerful and faster in defence too (with the same apacs factory string at 24lb), I feel like the hits are more crisp than the 21 and 22. But the power is still nowhere near what I get from the VT80 (with Bg65 strings at 24lb).
These Lurid Power rackets are quite cheap so maybe buy 2 of them to try out?

After reading the reviews about Tantram 500 international, it seems rather good but having to see one of the brother's racket actually got broken at the middle shaft. Is Tantram 500 that brittle?

After reading the feedbacks in APAC club, I am interested in getting two racket for myself and my younger brother. I am a slightly better off beginner while my brother is a immediate player (he used to play for his secondary school). I am interested in getting Finapi 101 or 80 while my brother needs a racket that gives him offensive power. It seems like it's either Tantram 500 or slayer 99 for him.
After reading a brother's review, it has shown

I have two, I love the T500's, strung both at 32lbs without issues.
However, the paint-details on the frame scrape off rather easily

Hi Warlock. It is completely normal for one to string at 24-26 lbs. The tension is really suited to a player's taste and their skill level. Generally more advanced players use high tensions whereas beginners use lower tensions. In my book, low would be considered 21-24lbs and high would be considered 28lbs +

Don't forget to ask him or know what tension he usually plays his rackets at as well in case 26 lbs is too high or too low for his preference. Besides, unless he has a very strong hand and wrist to generate sufficient force, higher tensions might result in a loss of power cos the stringbed is less bouncy. Thats something you'd wanna consider too! Just my 2 cents.
