    Been using T200 for a decade already. New 3rd generation of T200 @ T200 III is replacing all the previous model now. It still comes with the same spec. Only the shaft thickness for the newer gen is slightly thinner.

    I would say that slayer 99 2nd generation
    at this present moment has the same spec as T200. You can try it and then judge how well it suits with your preferences. No doubt T200 is one of Apacs best racket. Since T200 is Apacs even balance flagship racket, that's why it is a highly sort out racket.

    Below is S99ii specs for your references

    Slayer 99 II

    It is a head light racket. I would say it’s okay for doubles.
    For singles you would be better with a balanced racket or head heavy racket.

    I suggest you look for Apacs Virtuoso performance or if you prefer stiff rackets maybe Virtuoso Pro.
    They are more powerful but may not be much more money.

    A racket with this specifications (4U, Head light and medium flexibility) is design for players who has a weak swing strength and swing speed. Its weight and balance specs is meant to give you more control / maneuverability in your swings. Therefore, if your swing strength and swing speeds match perfectly with this type of racket specs (when using it) then it can be a good racket for you.

    If you've already been using this racket then i won't recommend a head heavy balance racket if you still don't have the strength in your swings to use it. You will just end up injuring your arm.

    Hi, does anyone know if there are different versions of Lethal 10? ie. different generations? Because i played with one before (white), which is highly flex and very light head. But i just recently played with one newly bought from my friend (forgot blue or green), it's much stiffer and more solid feel, and the lower part of the head frame is obviously much wider and thicker. I also think the head seems slightly heavier. Can anyone verify this? Or he actually bought a fake product?

    Ive seen lots of colours available but from what i have seen they are all the same spec and frame thickness.
    I doubt anyone would make a lethal 10 racket though, they are already low priced.

    Me too, that's why i suspect Apacs has made new version of Lethal 10? From your color variant picture, i think his racket was the blue color one.

    The blue one, second from the left?
    Thats the original Lethal 10 colour which looked similar to Victor Bravesword 12. There is also a navy blue version.
    Maybe the original L10 was a different spec, ive had that colour and a couple of the others and all seemed the same.

    Any Apacs rackets with very similar specs to Duora Z Strike (doesn't have to be as stiff) on the market?

    - Slight head heavy
    - Around 6.5mm stiff shaft
    - Compact rounded box/aero box head

    Added bonus if it has a longer handle-shorter shaft combination like DZS.

    Closest spec wise I've found was the Ziggler Pro II LHI. Has anyone tried that racket and how does it perform?

    The closest thing from Apacs would be Blend series, look into Blend pro or Pro 2. Spec might be close enough except shaft stiffness, DZS is extra stiff i think and Apacs doesn't have anything that come to extra stiffness of Yonex

    The Virtuoso Pro is stiff, head heavy and a similar shaft diameter but is more of a sword type frame.
