    Default Wanna get apacs racket (elbow injury)

    Hi, i am a hard smasher but recently injured my elbow again.
    Wanna get a lighter racket as i am using yonex muscle power 18.
    Which apacs would suit me? Budget constrain to roughly below rm150.
    Lethal series or any other? lethal 9 ok for my case?

    If you want a new racquet thats ok. But is there any particular action that causes your elbow to hurt? If you 'force' your smash too much this may cause your elbow pain rather than the racquet you use. It may be beneficial to change your technique a little bit to save you some cash on a racquet.

    been resting for long time. on and off.
    injury i guess due to weight training. haha...
    i am a bodybuilder. i guess it got worse when i bench press 100kg or so.
    that was months ago.
    well, i wanna get a new lighter racket just to change my style of playing.
    my technique is alright i guess. haha... level is around state level. =.=

    some time ago, i had a habit of smashing with too much strain on my shoulder. although i fixed it after correcting my technique, i found that using apacs' visible hollow rackets (in my case vh2020) helped prevent extra strain and prolonged my endurance. it really does reduce the vibrations and puts less stress on my body.

    like you, i also weight-lift. good luck!

    (quite unfortunate most readers only assume your technique is incorrect instead of answering your question directly)

    hahaha... yeah, well, its pretty common i guess.
    if i were to question another person also, it might be technique.
