    Default APACS rackets Questions

    Hi Guys,

    i am a APACS lover and i have used theie rackets for 2 years.
    I was recently in Queensway SC in Singapore and was pretty shock with the price of the APACS price offered by the shop owner.

    I told him that its relatively cheaper over in JB and his comments to me is, there are many fakes APACS rackets in JB ????

    Then i was in 10 & 10 in the Bras Basah...and when looking thru the APACS rackets, i noted there is a slight diff in the rackets. The logo located at the bottom of the handle is white in color while the one that i have at home are yellow in color ....there is a diff. And why so ? I bought all my rackets in JB.

    On my way home, i was pondering over this. Was that a sales tactics from the shop owner to get me to buy rackets from him ?

    But when i think again, more questions pop up...

    1.) why the diff in the color of the logo ?
    2.) JB is so near to Singapore ....why such a big diff in the price ?
    i noted some of the rackets in JB are 2 for the price of 1 !!! Really amazing !!!
    Can there be a such diff ??

    Many Thanks for the help..
    actually i am looking and planning to buy the Tantum or maybe the new Edge sledge z.

    the apacs i own currently has a red cap with white shiny logo and "UK" below the logo
    i think they changed the cap design

    personally, SG is a place to get those models that could hardly be obtained in Msia (L70, T300 etc)

    and who would make fakes for such rackets? i mean the original ones are already very cheap and affordable. unless the cloners are willing to clone apacs high end series and sell them at RM50 each. would there be such cloners? most probably no?

    There is the silver one as well , I dont think they are fake , it is just that they are from different batch.

    As I know, Apacs have 2 or 3 contracted Manufacturers in China, I think they just produced from different factory. In Malaysia, the RED cap is the most available

    I recall someone mentioning that on this site (www.bulutangkis.com) too, but I can't find the post now.
