    can you talk more about AMP95?compare with AMT900?as you say try before right?
    At times i don't know is it my feeling but there are times i feel that the VH is a bit stiffer than 95 ...... but you can feel more of the head when you swing..... more momentum .....

    AT 900 t - For me the feel is like VH but stiffer and i can feel vibration .....so after 1 game i don't like the feel and i just don't think about it anymore ....

    Actually alll i can say is that buy a racket is like having a Girl Friend
    the diff is that you can try racket but not GF .....
    No matter what people say how good a racket is , if in your hand it just don't like the feel then the racket is no use ..... unless you are in the highest level in the Badminton world ......

    I have an AMP90 and a VH1800 so it's a slightly different comparison but I feel that the AMP90 is WAY more demanding than the VH1800. And I'm not up to the task. I just can't get full power out of the AMP90. Maybe it's the stiffness, I'm not sure but I find that I have to really work to get a hard smash or to get a full court clear when I'm slightly out of position. And after playing a few games I can feel that I'm getting tired and the power of my hits goes down.

    I've only played with the VH1800 once so far and it was a short day so I can't talk about whether I get as tired but it was definitely easy to get the power. My smashes and clears were crisp and powerful and my drops felt like they had lots of touch. I didn't feel the Visible Hollow effect very much (I haven't played with any of the other VH racquets but people describe the effect as being quite noticable) but that's fine, it's a great racquet with really nice power and I didn't feel that my defense or manuverability suffered.

    I have a feeling 90 is different from 95 ..... just my feel .....
    My 95 is my racket now and i am just loving .... power is a total awsome and some time too much power at 28 lbs ..... will try a 30 lbs for my new one ...

    BTW i have 3 x 95 and 1 x 1800

    I'm not saying that he AMP90 has no power, I'm just saying that it requires more out of the user to get that power. A flexible racquet is really easy to get power from but for a powerful player won't be able to get their max power.

    The AMP90 was too stiff for me and the VH1800 is definitely less stiff than the AMP90. I'm suggesting that's why you can get power out of the VH1800 even when you are tired

    What really caught my eye was the brilliant paint job and design. It was a really beautiful piece of art.

    My first impression of this racket was that it was too stiff. But when my arm adjusted and I started hitting the sweet spot, shots were wonderful. Accuracy was great, power was there and the sound of my smashes were really intimidating.

    After the initial first testing, I wrapped a normal Ashaway overgrip over the original grip and when I next used it, I got a shock. The racket felt so much easier to control! Power was, however, reduced, due to the handle being heavier than before.


    It was originally strung at 28lbs with a 0.66mm APACS string, can't remember which one. I used the racket so much that the strings soon snapped.

    Newly restrung at 30lbs with BG66, you could feel the sweet spot get significantly smaller, which is rather unfortunate. Although shots were sharper and with better feeling (Which might be due to the string), mishits were very unforgiving. All in all though, for the price that I saw it was being sold for, this racket is worth it.
    Power: 3.5/5
    Control: 4.5/5
    Feel: 5/5
    Manouevrebility: 3.5/5 (NiKYEAM)
    Furious 665

    4UG5 - BP290 - L675

    I have got this racket prior to seeing review for 663. The main difference between the 2 is 665 is more heavy head but very slightly only. This might be due to lighter lead tape attached below the original grip.Design of the 2 racket is exactly the same so they might be the same racket.

    The original grip is too thin for me so i used Karakal super grip and works really well, bringing the BP down to 285. Racket has been strung for 27lbs and later 30lbs with bg85 and it play really well at high tension(dont' be afraid add 3 more lbs to your usual 3U racket tension for this softer frame).

    This racket hits like a lighter ti10, maneuver faster than NS9000 and explode loud on smash! It is as stiff as NS9000S only.Most excellent for beginner/ladies to advance player (using balanced racket). No doubt this is a double attacking racket.

    But if you are those intermediate heavy smasher using bigger swing to generate power avoid this racket! It is most suitable for shorter and faster swing style.

    In short this is a light fast attacking racket with great feel. I am going to test it in higher tension tomorrow

    Power: 4/5
    Control: 4.5/5
    Feel: 5/5
    Maneuverability: 4/5

    I have a pro furious 2000 for about 6 months now. It is not an easy racket to use due to its stiffness of the shaft. When I swing the racket I feel the frame not as fast as my other rackets like Ti-10, NS 7000, or Woven 7. Probably the ridge along the inside frame at 9 and 3 o'clock position. After changing several strings like BG 66, BG 80, and Ti-spider at 28 lbs finally I got the suitable string for this racket which is YY BG 85. With other string I can't generate enough repulsion but with BG 85 and probably with Nanogy 95 or 98 I can get good repulsion/power, better feel and control from this stiff racket. Good things about this racket is its durability and cosmetics, if you like a stiff shaft racket it is a racket of choice.
    If you want a more friendly Apacs racket which is good for all around I recommend the lethal 50, or maybe the newer lethal 60.
