Hi Apacsian !
I'm currently using Apacs Virtuoso 30
I'm new to badminton ^_^

So I've used Tantrum 200, Slayer 88, Finapi 77 II, and Z-Slayer and I have to say the best of all of them is the Tantrum 200 then the Slayer 88. Both these rackets are APACS' own creations rather than clones.
Tantrum 200: It's a stiff racket, slightly head heavy to me, and it felt great clearing and smashing. I didn't feel agile at the net but returning smashes weren't an issue for me. Net kills were easy as well, just that tight netshots weren't always successful. I have a much more powerful smash due to the combination of the racket and the strings. Nowadays opponents say "oh crap" or "uh oh" when they lift it to me.
Slayer 88: It's a little less stiff than Tantrum 200. Overall it plays a little like the Armortec 900 Technique, except a little more even balance I would say. The clears were good, but the smashes weren't as steep as my Tantrum 200. It might be because I'm not used to the swing speed and mis-timed the shots; i.e. I swing too fast and it pops the shuttle up instead hitting it down. Slayer 88 is a lot easier to maneuver than the Tantrum 200, but it sacrifices a little power as a result. I discovered that I could clear end to end from knee-level on my forehand side with this racket and it felt great! Since this racket isn't as stiff as the Tantrum 200, I had to a "whip" like snap for smashes and clears in order to make use of the slight flex in the shaft. Unfortunately returning smashes were a little difficult with this racket because I would swing too fast.
The other two rackets don't feel as solid as Slayer 88 or Tantrum 200, I would encourage players new to APACS to go straight for the Tantrum 200. It's the kind of racket that you save for a special day and it can be your go-to racket as well. One of the best rackets I've had so far. I didn't want to pay for the extra shipping of buying two separately so I bought both in one shipment and I'm glad I did because I would be ordering a second one right now.
Both were strung with BG66 Maxima and I've played with each racket two times a week for five months. If you have any questions, PM me =)

I'm considering Lethal series (7/9/10) vs Vertuoso series, which model good for heavy smashing?
Pls advice. Many Thanks.

if you're looking for lethal series, go for higher end. L60/L90/L100/ the new L110. they are good for heavy smashing. Among those, i've tried L60... good fro smashing indeed but i still prefer my T200.
had a chance to play with YY ARC10 which have similar spec (even balance, stiff shaft) with T200. ARC 10 feels more solid and a little bit heavier than T200. IMO, T200 can really challenge ARC10 in every aspect except, drop shot, ARC10 is excellent in this department.
But value for money, T200 still the best. the price is 1/3 cheaper than an ARC10.

Use to own T200 as well and is a good racket for power and smashes. Best part is the pricing
It may not be suitable for beginner due to its stiffness and wrong technique may cause injuries.
Optionally it can be strung at lower tension to begin with and slowly move up according to your adaptibility
