    Hi APACS fans,

    when not talking about written parameters, the ones of you who tried Tantrum 160 and Tantrum 200, what is your personal feeling from both rackets and the main differences which would make you go for 160 or 200? Thanks

    Hi Apacs UK,

    could you just clarify your statement?

    Are you saying that shipping a racket out from UK to Europe or Malaysia will be the same postage at a UK postage of 4.50?

    or do you mean something else

    thanks

    Do you also string rackets before shipping according to customers' needs? I mean if you are able to guarantee requested STRING type + TENSION.

    Thanks S.

    has anyone tried the new lethal light or tantrum light series? How do they fill for smashing and clears?

    I am also interested in the Tantrum Light Exclusive and Lethal Light Special as well since my Kason Lepton F1 broke =[

    Anyone have any reviews of them? Or how they are compared to the Superlight? (Seems like Superlight is out of production)

    I have tried once my lethal light 1.10 with the crappy proace string which broke within a couple games. But the racket feel really light and were quite good with clears and smashes.

    Anyone know if the VH1800 is easier to defend or maneuver than lethal 60/lethal 70?

    Depends on the specific racket. I just got them both and the lethal 70 is both lighter and head lighter than the VH1800 so I'd say no with my specific rackets.

    Remember there is always some variation in manufacturing.

    Default Tantrum 200 Review

    FINALLY got to take my T200 out for a test drive this afternoon, so here are my thoughts (Ash Zymax 67 @ 24/26), 4U.

    Feels very light in the hand and cuts the air very well indeed, to the point where I was struggling with timing at first. Frame gave a slightly worrying feel when I mis-timed any monster overheads, but these diminished as I got used to the racket. The feel when hit properly is very good for a 4U, which usually vibrate a lot more than this does.

    T200 is deceptively powerful and this power is unloaded very smoothly with my wristy style. I got super-powered smashes, drives and clears - you can get the shuttle pretty much anywhere from anywhere, which is incredible for a 4U.

    Control, as you would expect with this weight, is excellent. Any time I had to hit the line, the T200 obliged, and I was clipping the net with my tumblers far more often than usual.

    Defense is superb, as the balance makes it almost effortless to move around. Shuttles can be lifted with the merest flick, and smash blocks can be directed prety much anywhere at will. Deceptive "hold" shots are made much easier thanks to the head speed.

    I only wish I'd got a 3U version - the 4U makes me hesitant to really unload on a smash, so I was using a lot of punch clears (successfully, I should add). Other than that, the balance, stiffness and aerodynamics are all perfect for level doubles. Even the paint finish is good, since after all my framers there wasn't a scratch.

    Summary:

    Power: 8/10 (simply because it's a 4U - the 3U would be a serious hitter)
    Defense: 9/10
    Control: 9/10
    Durability: N/A (worried about the frame, though, hence the in-warranty tension)
    Looks: 9/10 (drew positive comments from people who hadn't seen an APACS before)
    Value for money: 10/10 - this racket should be at least 20 more expensive than it is.

    Despite all this, though, it still may appear in BC Buy&Sell, as I have a NS9900 coming this week. I already have a bag full of Pandas and I could do with the extra cash.

    Hi Mark

    Are you saying the frame feels kinda less-durable compared to other rackets? As in the material of the frame?

    Also, can I ask if your racket a UK coded racket? Did it come with a serial APXXXX ?

    Cheers.

    @ Mark a: thanks for your review.

    But I think the Tantrum is about 86g - 3u racket (despite the fact that it's printed 4u on the racket).

    Since my lethal 50 is about 88.5g so it's no way to be a 4u racket as said.

    I think Apacs is a bit off in categorizing their products.

    Glad that you enjoy your experience with Tantrum 200

    Not less durable, as such, just a bit jarring because of the light weight. Looking at the frame now I can see a couple of literally sub-milimeter dots of white but no other signs of use. Mine is 4U-G2 but ostensibly weighs 87g - feels WAY lighter! - BP290, which I would simply not believe. No serial number is evident, just the reg. number of the APACS company.

    Just ordered Apacs nano 900 power (red) with 26/28 tension using Apacs string. At first, I was looking for a 5U rackets (lethal light and tantrum light) because I love light racket, but I don't know if they are head light or head heavy, so I found nano 900 to be 4U and head heavy. I tried my friend's nano 900 before and I quite liked it at that time. The feel, power and control were all there and it is quite light too making it easy to whip the racket. Many people struggling generating power with light racket, but I don't have a problem with it
