    Slayer 88 II feels like a brick (like Voltric DG) and very slow. It do have an aero dynamic frame. But with normal frame size and high BP (300) it still feel slugish. Not recomended.
    Don't know slayer 88 III. But it got me stay way from this Slayer 88

    not even close, I would say 4u ziggler, since it has compact head and ~290bp

    Ziggler is a clone of ZF2. I dont think Apacs has anything close to JS10 and 12.

    exactly it is a clone of zf2 with the comparable stiffness (at least my i zigglers lhi pro are very stiff) but not so head heavy, thus its frame is even faster than js10 due to more compact head.

    Would you mind to share how good is Ziggler LHI? Could you compare it with Tantrum 200?

    never tried tantrum so I can not compare with it, but it should be very different to tantrum which is more about control and balance, accuracy with quite a lot of power. but mine iZiggler's are very fun to play with, I added on to them +2g of lead strips to even out balance point and to have more weight than 84g, since it has very compact head (with really thin profile and being aerodynamic at 5 and 7 o'clock) it is very speedy racket, even sometimes too speedy, so you have to really to invest time in adjusting timing, after picking them up and playing in the last session I was constantly hitting outs even with backhand, and sometimes mishitting shuttle by swinging way too early, but due to speed you can return almost any smash with it, and then lots of steepness and power as well is there waiting to be unlocked with good timing :) so due to being stiff and extremely speedy it is very suitable for finger work and wrist, in full motion it has lots of power - if you hit sweet spot. Apacs really good a good job of making more tame and user friendly zfII :) do not use sensor anymore but it works very nicely and apacs app is quite ok, crashing loosing connection sometimes but when it works it is very nice.

    I have Yonex Duora 77, which is even balance 3U racket. Good for smashing and netplay, but I am not comfortable during fast exchange and defence. Feels somewhat sluggish. Cost Approx. RS. 3800. The Duora frame is somewhat uncomfortable to me due to its dual frame nature. Good for Singles play and manageable for back court doubles play.

    My backup racket is Yonex Nanoray 2i light. A 5U head light racket. Good for defence and fast exchange. Netplay is good. But no smashing power and horrible clear. Good for front court player in doubles

    Pls note this is my personal experience and I am a beginner to intermediate player. My footwork and technique is okayish.

    There will experienced persons here who can give better advice.

    If you like z ziggler, why would you want a 5u or 6u racquet?

    Thanks for instant reply ,
    If I play 4 to 5 games in doubles then my shoulder and elbow hurts, also I heard that defense is good with the 5u and 6u racket...

    Currently using Sensuous 686.
    Did buy a Sizzler on eBay. Lovely racket. Really good for the price.
    Looking at switching to the Stardom 100.

    In that case find another 3U or 4U racquet that you can use for the whole session. It is not a good idea to go from a ziggler (which is basically apacs zf2), to a 5U or 6U racquet. You're asking to get an injury.

    I do not think that fatigue is being caused by the racket, but rather by faulty technique... and ziggler is very different to zf2 much much more reactive and faster since bp is normal/even not like a hammers
