Thanks for the replies Jerby and Phaaam. Likes are given to both of you.
Looks like the Slayer 99 is my type of racquet .
Now all I need to do is break my unbreakable Sotx W7 somehow

The difference between L100 and Slayer 99.
L100 is Nano High Modulus Japan carbon with chrome braided into the frame not as stiff as slayer 99.
Slayer is Japan high modulus carbon +carbon nano tubes+ 3k woven frame.
Both racquets look great as you can see the woven process.

Tweet 8000 idoes not have the power armour frame as L60/70 it is muscle wave heavy impact frame and also has new technology foaming tech and inbuilt carbon t joint + 6.7 shaft so this is why there is a price difference

nice and clear write up review, I recently clash my T200, and broke in 2 pcs at 1 and 7 o'clock, i'm looking for a replacement, like your experience with T200 I found it lacks power at the rear court, the defend was improved alot since i own T200,
I'm looking for something like T200 with more power at rear court without sacrifice the defend , and aero dynamic shape for easy swing , and faster compare with box frame. would you guy think Visible Hollow 2000/2020 fit in my objective? but I read somewhere VH 2000 slower than T200 in defend, which hold me back to purchase one,
and how's the VH 2000 's defend compare to L60/70?

I think the Lethal 60/70 would be a reasonable "upgrade" to the T200 since it's head heavy, similar frame shape. However, it's not that aerodynamic. Both frames are thinner than my Voltric 80 though, which has an aero-box frame shape (i.e. a compromise between the two).
There are a lot of options. I personally have 4xTantrum 200, 2xLethal 70, Voltric 80 PG, Finnex Nano Tour. Of the 5 rackets I have the Tantrum 200s were the cheapest.
If I were you, I would just get at least one more Tantrum 200 and then try it out against something else you like. Usually I just read the racket specs at the bottom of the page to get an idea of what it might play like. The first thing I look for is frame shape, since I can't play with aerodynamic. My understanding is that when it's aerodynamic, it sacrifices a little stability compared to a box-frame. Which is why the Armortec 900 Technique isn't as powerful as the AT900 Power (I've tried playing with both).
But, this doesn't apply to every racket and the only way to find out for sure is to play with it yourself. Apacs doesn't cost too much so there is a lot of room for trial and error. I actually sold 4 Apacs rackets a couple months ago and selling another one soon.

Phaaam, I'm done with T200 for the reason "lack of power in rear court" (i'm over 40) I hope to find something like T200 but better aid in rear, that' s y I hope to switch to aerodynamic shape like VH2000/2020 without sacrifice the power, and for stability, VH has hollow shape will absorb vibration, some reviews in this link http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...le-Hollow-2000!
said more power compare to T200, more head heavy, more favor toward vh 2000/2020 but I find T200 is more popular, (for me I can get them at the same price). very few people using this racquet in my area, so finding one for testing is a problem.

I got my Nano Fusion Speed 722 rackets yesterday! I'll write down some thoughts on them after I get to play Saturday. I can tell this will be a good defensive racket, just with how light the racket is, and how quickly I can maneuver it. Looking forward to this weekend!

L100 is not faster just has more flex.If you get 3u slayer then slayer is slightly quicker due to being lighter and even balance.

Can someone tell me what the "PK" imprint on the shaft of this Lethal 90 means? The handle has the normal UK flag on it.
Edit: I've seen there are SG, NA and PK versions. So maybe SG=Singapore, NA=N/A, but PK=Pakistan?

I notice that Apacs have a series named Foray.
And from they FaceBook page, they seem has just release many new model under this series. E.g. Foray 700, Foray 707, Foray 800, Foray 808... etc.
Can I know this series characteristic ?
Any review on the above?
I am particularly interest on the Foray 808, as I am currently looking for a 4U racket with Even Balance BP. And since this is a new series, I assume it have better technology behind.
