    Could be a typo on the specs in Apacs badminton UK. I dont think Apacs would make a 40T frame racket which take the same max tension of 35lbs as 30T frame. Even the most expensive high end Apacs like Virtuoso pro II are using 30T frame. I seriously doubt the 40T frame racket. I can't find any info about TX on Apacs official website, only from some online store in UK.

    It seems like APACS stopped updating their racket catalogue. But if ever this frame spec is true, i wonder how much benefit this really brings into your game:p

    I dropped an email to Apacs Official FB page, they copy and paste the spec shown in the UK website, when I ask is that a typo on 40T frame ? and please explain the reason behind designing a 40T frame as it is the very first 40T frame I come across in the market, they do not answer me until today.

    Lethal 7 is an old entry level model and APCAS produces heaps of entry level rackets every year.

    Could be typo or TX really has a 40T frame. Looks like it's not new as Forza seems to have used this material in some of their rackets:https://issuu.com/sportak/docs/fz_forza_rackets-shuttles_2017-2018

    Looks like Forza is moving one step ahead with 40T frame in their high end and lightweight rackets. it is understandable when racket trend is moving towards 5U,6U, 7U weight we need stronger and lighter material.

    40T frame with 23-30lbs tension? just marketing gimmick i guess.

    Is Apacs Virtuoso Pro II Robert Blair a better Racket than Apacs Virtuoso Performance ? Anyone who has used both rackets that can share their experience ?

    Nothing to replicate with L70. It's purely Apacs's produced it own model. And this's one of the best from Apacs. It's hard now to find it one except you can catch used stuff. Moreless, if your luck is good to get the 4U then marriage it with Yonex BG85 in 28 lbs.

    when you see what angles LHI can produce with a clone, it becomes very tasteful :D

    Apacs rackets are great! If only they weren't so heavy. Their 3U feels like 2U and 4U feels like 3U.....

    really? did not notice that, which model it would be? just some rackets with 87 grams for example is in between, which is not a bad thing as well.

    but yea they have very great models (for example blend pro is so better than duora 10 or whatever number), but they could release something new, it seems that they manufacture 10 year old stuff mostly.
