    Hi Hellojeffo,

    Yes, taneepak gave a very good technical explanation as well as trying to give a layman version. Unfortunately, he seems to have lay low for abit. I hope he will return to educate us more on the other parts of a racket

    I wanna ask you guy. Does a racket used for a time, and the shaft will become more soft? Cause my nano900power shaft is getting more soft... Some more I wonder why my racket string tension drop very fast.. 28lbs, and now it like 24-25lbs only. The string will run in place.

    Two very different rackets, 9600 will definitely have better defense while VH1800 will be a lot better for attacking. If you are looking for a singles racket, I would go for the VH1800.

    Yes, the carbon fibres in the shaft are subjected to pretty large stresses, and each time you hit a shuttle, it flexes and there are nano/micro cracks formed. After a while, these very very very fine cracks will make the shaft feel as if it is softer.

    As for string tension, the drop is unavoidable. If the stringer is good, It depends on your playing style, the weather condition, the stringer, the strings, and so on... so once it drops until you don't like it, you'll just have to restring

    Don't like the string also must like. Cause it really hard for me to change the string every month.. Expensive...

    Ya, actually stringing is easy, just the starting cost a bit high, so string for friends, then once the cost come back, then ok adi....

    Yes yes. Well, as I am currently in Singapore studying, I'll talk about the cost in SG. I do it as a hobby and for my friends, and charge them a very minimal SGD4 for service, while the strings I will charge them at only a little bit more than cost. As I am not doing a business, I keep a very limited range of strings.

    Machine wise, it's just a simple Eagnas two point drop weight machine I got from HK. I started using it for stringing tennis racquets, but now I do squash and badminton racquets as well.

    Pros:
    -You get to choose the stringing pattern you like
    -You can have consistency, because you are the one stringing
    -Cheaper in the long run
    -Personal Satisfaction
    -You can do your own emergency stringing

    Cons:
    -Expensive start-up cost. (I invested about SGD460 machine, and tools)
    -Need some capital for buying strings
    -Face the risk of spoiling customers' racquets
    -Need to spend time to know the business so you can make stringing recommendations to customers
    -If this is not your main business, it may be time consuming (i'm a student)
    -You tend to restring ur racquet more often than necessary

    Tips:
    If you intend to start stringing for yourself, it would be worth reading up this forum to learn how to string first. Understand what strings are in the market, and how they play. Research on the machines available, and weigh the pros n cons of each.

    Once you're in the business, the key is to be consistent and knowledgeable in your stringing.

    I just Tested the Apacs Furious 120 and 355.

    Furious 120 is an armotec and muscle power merge.. apacs call it new technology.

    the racket is very solid .. feel stable .. ( not as stable as yonex but still good enough)

    speed wise it's slow compare to my arcsaber 10 . it' swing alot slower but still does generated power.

    The furious 355 is a just a muscle power clone... solid racket again ... i assuming that Furious series are pretty solid racket

    the 350 feel very standard .. not sure how to say... it's feel more balace and heavy but it's not any more heavy than the 120 when i weighted it.

    both this racket is around 91gram on the scale.

    will update with more of my feeling of the racket when i use more of it.

    Hi hellojeffo,

    Thanks for the info.
    Once I learn abit I might venture into getting myself a stringing machine and attempt at stringing.
    It sounds interesting and if nothing else keep me busy and another interest.

    Can anyone advise on a list of stringing tools etc required to start?

    As for APACS rackets,
    hellojeffo had contributed his personal experience/review on one of the APACS racket on page 60 and I wish there are more APACS fans to assist in this, maybe we should start a thread just to follow the "Personal experience/review" on rackets or just APACS rackets.

    What do you all think?

    I managed to lay my hand on an APACS Nano 7700 Power but I have not use a Yonex nanospeed 7700 so can't really compare the clone with the original but once I have a go, I can put up my opinion.

    Like a lot of you, I am waiting for DinAlot review to be published and meantime if we can contribute into some format will assist those nebiw APACS fans.

    see ya!!

    Wink suggestion for string.

    can you roughly give suggestion on , what brand of string n gauge size, tension, is best for a racquet to achieve high performance ( i mean, generally for medium level player)
    of course i know YONEX is the 1st choice for international standard. BG80, BG66, BG65..... widely use by pro-players. how about BG6??? some others brand, like RSL, Gosen, Apacs, Fleet.....
    any comment about this???

    thank for reply
