APACS SLAYER 99 Review
Hi, i'm just sharing a quick review of the new slayer 99.
FIrst of all, before switching to this racket, i was player with apacs Tantrum 200.
In my opinion, T200 is one of the best racket ever made. so I'll compare the slayer 99 to the T200.
Quickness: the S99 is so quick! its 3U but its as quick as 4U!! smash returns are so easy and could easily clear from back hand! it's also very fast at the net. its faster than t200
power: I think that i have more power with S99 even if its not head heavy like the T200. my smashes were great but I think that in a couple of weeks, they are going to be a lot stronger
precision: The 2 rackets are equal in term of precision.
please people share your opinion on the brand new racket!

Do u own the lethal 70 as well? I was planning on purchasing the slayer 99. Right now I have the Slayer 95 and Lethal 70.

no i never tried lethal 70. I'm planning on purchasing it lol. But i'm very happy with my S99. its one step higher than the tantrum 200 in my opinion. How is the slayer 95?

I wrote a review on the S95.
The lethal 70 is a beast of a singles racquet. Never tried the tantrum 200 before.. I suggest getting the lethal 70. =)

its 3U even balance.
I'm a head heavy player, and its the first even balance that gives me as much power!

how stiff is the Slayer 99?

in apacs range, 7.0 is very stiff and 9.0 is very flex. on the shaft it says 7.5... and it feels stiff. Compared to the tantrum 200, Slayer 99 is more stiff.

i have just received my APACS SLAYER 99. It looks really good. I haven't played with it yet but it feels really nice. (Apart from a very poor standard grip) I will post a review on monday after giving it a go over the weekend

It is not head heavy, its an even balance.

Just given it ago and it is so easy to clear the shuttle. At the net this is phenomenal. I could consistently get within centimetres of the net cord.It is truly awesome

am a bit confused with regards to apacs and their flex rating. I have a lurid power 23 and its supposed to be stiff. But its not. Far from it. My carbonex 21sp and prince more+xl are far stiffer. heck, my YY nanospeed 200 which has a flexible shaft is stiffer.
So just how stiff is the slayer 99's stiff. Is it like voltric 70 or 80 stiff?
I dont have a store anywhere near me to get a hands on, so some feedback would be much appreciated.

not sure about voltric 70 or 80, but the slayer 99 is much stiffer than my wilson k blaze and voltric 5, both are medium flex. on the apacs stiffness scale, the slayer 99 is stiff, but not extra stiff. cant really compare to other rackets cos i havent tried many yet.
