    if you read it, it says pending.
    DinkALot does these reviews, and we should be happy just to get them. Give him time.

    I found the lethal's to be REALLY flexible. Head heavy, which is good, but not a raquet for someone with a fast swing speed.

    The Lethal 50 would be the only one "stiff" enough for your preference, the others ones, not so much.

    Can't believe Kason Carvel U3/U4 is in the BOLD category . It's very cheap, lightweight and flexible yet durable. A little bit tricky to use, especially for smashing.

    You need to read the chart more carefully.

    Each racket made is designed for a certain purpose; at least a predominant one. The Carvel U3/U4 is designed to be a lightweight, flexible, durable, defensive racket, at an excellent price. That's why it's in bold.

    The Carvel is an excellent defensive racket and if you look at the performance findings, they reflect that. It's not an attack oriented racket at all as backed by the performance findings. And not all attack oriented rackets are good either.

    It really depends what you are looking for in a racket.

    If you are a hard hitter or offense oriented, you should be looking at offensive/attack rackets, not defensive ones.

    I hope this clarifies why the Carvel is a highly recommended racket and why something as powerful and solid as a SOTX Woven 11 is not highly recommended.

    Hi DinkAlot,

    Congratulations on your Ultra and Trinity racquets. I am interested to hear your review/comments about the above APACS models. Just update us when you are able. Thanks DinkAlot.

    I will not be reviewing the Panda Power rackets, I feel it will be a conflict of interest.

    Default APACS Nano PRO 9600 Tour

    I just bought an APACS Nano Pro 9600 Tour, paid AU$120 for it (Racket + String + Freight). It is 3U/G2 (equivalent to YY G4) with YY BG-80 string @ 24-main/26-cross lbs, Wilson Pro Over Grip on top of the original grip. I have only used YY rackets for the past 20+ years (Cab-20, Boron-2, Cab-25, MP-100, MP-Limited, AT-900P & T, NS-8000). I play mostly doubles. Having had about 4 hours worth of court time with APACS NP9600T, I'd like to post my opinion/feel of the racket. In terms of feel, it is more flexible than ALL the above YY rackets. Don't get me wrong, it is not overly flexible, just a little more flexible. The racket feels balanced with just a hint of head heaviness. Swing speed is good but not as fast as YY 3U MP-100 & NS-8000 (in my hand). Racket feels stable. Control is fantastic. Power is good. More of a defensive racket than offensive. In terms of price/performance/quality equations - it is superb! I'm so impressed by the price/performance/quality equations, that I'm going to try another APACS. A stiffer one of course... the Armor Muscle Pro 95.

    I know that Kason carvel U3/U4 is not a powerful nor attacking racket. It is very hard to generate enough power to make it powerful. I am just surprised that you tried the Kason Carvel U3/U4. It is not popular, unheard of and even in the website, it is considered as a "recreational" racket. What I love about that racket is that it is so lightweight, it doesn't hurt my wrist so much and doesn't wear me down in a rally even after 8-10 games. And because it is so lightweight, you can generate the power to "whip" the racket from your arm and you will be surprised how much power this racket can generate. Good performance to price ratio racket in my opinion.

    Thanks for all the effort dinkalot.

    Would you have some Li-Ning rackets to review?
