    Thank you carbonex and everyone else in the thread, ordered coupld of AvP s ( as I don't like changing rackets and take ages to adjust so I ordered 2). Although were bit out of range I thought I would rather invest in the sport than a gadget I was looking to buy

    Should arrive soon, although it comes with bg65 ti 22 tension but we have been playing with plastics anyway and lot of low intermediate stuff so should be good for now.

    Any other suggestion regarding it ? Also I will first try to play with it couple of weeks then let you know about my review of the racket.

    Thank you !!

    Yeah mate, it's a really good racket. I wonder why apacs discontinued?
    They still do have tantrum 200 ii, how is it compared to this? Or it's the same just different name?

    The other side has a few chipped. Idk why only 1 side lol, never use just 1 side intentionally.

    Tantrum 200ii is different. T300 is claimed to be even balance but is head heavy. T200ii also has more flexible shaft.

    T200 and T300 are exact same models for local and oversea market, T200 II has a slimmer 6.7mm shaft. I can't see any difference between T200 II and T200 III.

    I have one. The head is more to oval (top narrower) than isometric. I can feel vibration from the shaft when hit the shuttlecock. I don't feel comfortable playing with it.

    Strung with BG80 at 25lbs or 26 lbs then.

    That has been a perennial quality issue for Apacs. Having seen many rave reviews of the AVP i wonder if it suffers from the same ?

    I afraid I can't comment on the AVP as I have not try one before. If you are interest in a AVP, perhaps you may wish to borrow one from your friend if they have one. I found it relative hard to sell a 2nd hand APACS racket off. Hence, I may buy a 2nd hand one or ask to borrow from my friend instead.

    Hi Apacs Gurus. Lately, been looking at Apacs, hopefully to find 1 that is near or similar to the specs of Li ning Aeronaut 9000 (the white gold one).

    Any gurus here can recommend me any Apacs racket that is nearest to that? Many many thanks.

    Hmm maybe the Blend Pro II would be close? It has a slim box frame, sits in the 300+-3 balance area (on paper) and roughly 86g. Maybe Carbonex might know similar ones to recommend :p
