Recommend me a Racket!
Right now I want to move up to a racket that can hold a higher tension. Currently I am using a Black Knight PC-V65 and It can hold a max of about 24lbs. I have no budget and have looked around. I seem to like balanced rackets. I have heard the MP99 is a balanced powerful racket but has been discontinued. How is the Z-Slash? How about the AT900P? Li-Ning N90? I like smashing and will be playing singles most of the time. Thanks!

mp99 is slightly head heavy. Try the at900t. i think Z-slash is a bit more head heavy than mp99 and at900t. Both taufik and LCW have used the at900t at one time.

A little Head Heavy is fine. Is the AT900T create a good sound when the birdie is smashed?

I'm gonna use Ashaway Zymax 67 because its basically a BG80 that lasts longer. Hows the Ti-10? Is it the purple one?

its a great racket my personal favorite head heavy/even balance. It has a great feel to it.

maybe you should give Apacs Lethal 60/70 a try 50 is rated top of this review http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=45209
60 and 70 is pretty similar i have 60 myself and it generates a lot of power, i could tell the difference by the sound just by swinging it with my yy muscle power 100...
and for 80USD+18 shipping from racket_sports on ebay (quiet a few people on this forum got their rackets from him) i think it's well worth a try...
tension wise the new Lethal 70 could take up to 40lbs while (i think 60 is 30-35 depending on old - new versions)
tho this is not a balanced (weight: head heavy) racket it certainly gives power...
otherwise you can look into other top apacs rackets they're suppose 2 be similar to yy rackets while being much cheaper...

Okay Thanks peoples I will check out these rackets in more detail! I'm looking at Apacs Lethal series, Li-Ning N90, Yonex AT900T, Ti-10 and Z slash.

if you insist on a more balanced weight racket take a look at apacs Tantrum 200/300, this 1 also gets a lot of praise.
if you insist on yonex, i would go for Ti-10, u can't go wrong with it, tho it's not as cheap....
i've heard Z-slash isn't good unless your an advanced player with a good swing speed...
the thing is most yonex's tension recommendation is around 24lbs... and at that price i'd cry if it broke cuz it's stringed too high... i could get 2-3 top apacs rackets at that price...

ti-10 is pretty cheap in my opinion 130-140 including string and shipping at badmintonshoponline.us zslash is about 160 on that site as well

Okay Thanks everyone I'm seriously looking at the Tantrum 300 and Lethal 70 I've heard good things but can anyone give me more feedback? Also is this their offical Canada US website? http://www.apacscanada.com/lethal-ta...ial-p-108.html Has anyone bought stuff from them before?

recently strung for someone who bought that combo off apacscanada.com for the price i think its a good investment. the rackets are sturdy stringing them was a breeze. Good luck

I just found this http://cgi.ebay.ca/APACS-NANO-900-PO...item2303742f08 I know that a lot of people have bought from this guy but i'm a little skeptical looking at the price, can anyone shed some light on this?
01-03-2010, 02:41 AM #15
Whoops realized why its so cheap haha, um yeah has anyone purchased stuff from this guy?

I have and lots of other members, hes a great seller, but the strings that comes with the racket are not. the price are very competitive, and he can get other Apacs rackets as well. I would recommend getting non Yonex clones, they are usually 3U and performs better
