    The APACS NANO 900 POWER is a real racket. I personally don't know much about it, so I can't really comment on it further.

    In general terms, for high-end rackets, the best apacs rackets are the Lethal 60/70 and Tantrum 200/300. From my extensive research, I'd like to share this with you:
    Lethal 60 = Lethal 70 (except Lethal 70 may have a slightly different T-joint which increases stability).
    Tantrum 200 (3U) = Tantrum 300 (Tantrum 200 came in 2U and 4U also, but I don't think you can get the 2U anymore).

    In terms of other people's experiences that I have read across the web, the following rackets are also highly recommended (perhaps just as good as or better than the Lethal 60/70 and Tantrum 200/300), in no particular order:
    Visible Hollow 1700
    Visible Hollow 1800
    Slayer 88
    Slayer 99
    Lethal 90
    EDGESABER 10

    I personally own the following apacs rackets:
    Lethal 60
    Lethal 70
    Tantrum 300
    Lethal Light Special

    I got the Lethal Light Special purely out of curiosity and have effectively "given" it to a girl now. She likes how light it is (it's 6U).
    I have used the Lethal 60 regularly for over a year. Before this, I was using Yonex rackets, including AS 7 (I've finally sold this!), AT700, Z-Slash, and older Carbonex rackets. When I started with the Lethal 60, I never looked back. I became a convert to apacs. The way I see it, high-end apacs rackets are just as good as or better than rackets of other brands, except they are much cheaper!

    Of course they're genuine.
    APACS are a budget brand. Why would anyone bother making a fake APACS racket, when they could paint it to look like a Yonex instead, and then charge twice as much for it?
    That would be like making a fake 10 Casio wristwatch, when you could be making a fake Rolex...

    pro_one_sports seems to be a legit reseller of their APACs although I have never purchased from him. Another one is badmintonbay which seems to have really good deals.

    i have owned lethal 8 and 9, they are good rackets. lethal 9 is heavier than 8 and it's attacking racket.
    i haven't got the others rackets so i can't recomment the others.
    if you want stiff rackets, you can try Lethal 70, 90, Trantrum 300 and Slayer 99. these are really stiff rackets and powerful for attacking.

    For my personal experience,I was under the impression that apacs was a predominantly yonex copy brand,until I went on researching more and found out that they have their own line of rackets which are not yonex clones.

    But anyways a lot of companies also kinda "clone" each other one way or another so what the heck.

    A visit to the local distributor answered a few more questions about apacs on my mind and the most important one is how come their rackets can be strung at such a high tension as compared to the rest which is printed on their rackets,they told me that at their factory,they tested their rackets to the highest safest non frame damaging tension.This was a reasonable reply to me even though I do not play at such high tension,but you know sometimes small talk here and there can make you understand a lot of stuff.

    And for me most importantly is that their rackets have what I look for which is flexibility and lightness,with the lightest at 7u for their featherweight 200.

    I bought quite a number of rackets from them,mostly are the rackets from their non clone range,and frankly,the rackets are nice to use and easy on my injured arm.

    That aside another attractive feature of apacs is their low prices(which don't really matter to me anyways,but will mean a lot to a lot of other players worldwide)

    ***this above posting is purely out of my own opinion,no offense to any person(s)/company(s) is intended.***
