    I didn't like the LHI Pro either but I only had the 1st gen one. Haven't tried the new one.

    Hi there. I have bought myself an av performance, lost it in a clash. Poor thing broke beyond recognition. Not sure if there was a problem with mine, but the av pro in my opinion is sturdier. Besides that, the rackets are pretty similar. The av pro is however a tad stiffer and heavier compared to av performance.

    Office buddy bought himself a zf2, so I decide to splur on AVP. Indeed a fast and agile racket.. felt nimble as a 5u racket.. although raw smash power drop a tiny bit but I the speed from this is great.[​IMG]

    AVP is a middle end racket from apacs which played like high end racket. it got me amazed too. It has speed, power and stiffness which i felt it perfect. I could see my smash got stronger and steeper. But what lack from AVP is paint. It chip easily. (Yellow model) . I don't know but sometime AVP made my wrist tired fast or it just only me, since i think i have bought avp with extra head heavy then my second one. Inconsistent batch. I have sold my second AVP. Haha

    Could someone clarify the grip size for me? How big is the standard size of Apacs. Is it the same as Yonex's G4, or is it the same as Yonex G5. I've heard some say it's between Yonex G4 and G5. Could anyone clarify this for me, I'd be really grateful.

    Apacs Asgardia Lite review.

    since not alot of people review the racket and just ask questions like if anyone tried such and such racket, i would like to start this trend to review the newest rackets i have bought.

    Coming from lining windstorm 72 which on paper 72g but actual weight was with grip 83g and cost about $130. I was looking for a backup racket that has similar specs and found Apacs Asgardia lite with on papers specs are
    Weight: 73+/-2g actual weight with PU grid and BG 85 string strung at 26lbs.
    Balance: 295+/-3mm (Head Heavy)
    Flex: 9.0 (Medium)
    MaxTension: 35lbs
    Shaft Diameter: 6.8mm
    Length: 672mm

    This Racket clearly surpass the Lining Windstorm 72 in every aspect and you can buy 3 for an price Lining. here is the quick comparison.

    Comparison:
    Smashing Power:
    Asgardia Lite>Lining WS 72
    Swing Speed:
    Asgardia Lite>Lining WS 72
    Clearing:
    Asgardia>=Lining WS 72
    Lifting:
    Asgardia Lite>Lining WS 72
    Drop Shots:
    Asgardia Lite>=Lining WS 72
    Net play:
    Lining WS 72>= Asgardia Lite

    I'm going to buy following racket as i don't find reviews on them on internet and will review them here whenever i have enough time playing with them.

    Apacs Feather lite 75
    Apacs Counter Attack
    Apacs Fly Weight 73

    This is too lite for me. However, some good ol apacs models are still bang for the buck ime. Like the force 80 II and finapi 77 II which are flexible but dang good pricewise and performance wise.

    I noticed that there is a new Apacs Vanguard 88 racket model. Anyone tried before? It does look like YY Voltric 80 and ARC11 for the Vanguard 11

    Friends

    Need help. I have been playing with APACS rackets for the last 10 years. Lethal 70 for singles and Tantrum 200/300 for doubles. Now the supply dried up-these models are not available. Can you guys suggest me with equivalent new models from APACS?

    I don't know the equivalent of the Lethal 70 but Apacs have a new version of the Tantrum 200.

    Thanks,

    But the problem is, the supply of Tantrum & Lethal series dried up. Any of the above-mentioned models are hardly available. I was wondering if APACS has released newer models to replace Tantrum/Lethal series?

    For doubles, I mostly use Edgesaber10 & Vanguard11 these days. Awesome rackets considering the price. But they are a bit too light (4U). I prefer 3U versions. Tantrum & lethal were the best rackets I ever played with-better than many Yonex/Lining models which coasts double or more.

    You can try Pro Commander, stiffer and little head heavier than T200, made for double but it's can plays single quite good, the All In One racket

    If anyone is in need of a Lethal 60 I've got one I don't use anymore.
    I've also got a Virtuoso Pro blue too but may still use that unless anyone needs one.
