Apacs Lethal 70, 40 lb max. tension!
Holy crap! that's right the new Apacs Lethal 70 is supposed to handle a maximum stringing tension of 40lb according to the specs on the apacs UK website, also described as super stiff shaft and head heavy balance.

Apacs is just jealous of the Pandas racket!

BAH - head heavy! I hope they do a 4U, as I can then stuff the grip with lead to make it a 3U doubles racket

Fleet has been selling racquets that can take up to 40lbs for quite some time. At least 1 year on the market.
In real world scenario, it remains to be seen though.

Ugh, a new way to measure the length of the manly joint? Racquet's max tension?
Wake me, when you reach 100.

I can't seem to find it anywhere except for sale here used. Buy then I stumble onto this Lethal 70 in the UK before they even get the 60. I'm so confused @_@

Apacs Lethal 70
I think its same as Lethal 60, only its named Lethal 70. As I know, Lethal 70 is special model for Singapore market.
If you look closely to the photos, its copy Lethal 50 photos.

Tai Thung is right. Pictures are very similar, if not the same

Only the a few of the pictures are Lethal 70, I don't know why there are lethal 50 pictures included. But the point of the link was the specs.

Has anyone tried this racket yet? How is the flex? is it similar to Lethal 50?

APACS Canada has it up as the Lethal 60 (60, 70 its the same racket apparently), and is actually advertising it to be able to handle up to 45 lbs. Yes, FOURTY FIVE POUNDS. Makes me wonder if he got jealous of Dink's claims.
The Lethal 60 is supposed to be stiff, as compared to be medium-stiff for the 50. It's shaft is thicker by an avg of 0.4 mm (are we supposed by able to feel that difference?). About 3 cms long, it boasts a whopping extra 15 pounds on its max string tension, up to 45 from 30. Oddly enough, the order page does not give an option to string it at anything higher than 28/30.
What makes me laugh is that:
1. Special features are copied directly from the Lethal 50 page
2. It costs 30CAD less than the Lethal 50 (28ish USD difference)
