I've been wanting to do this for the longest time, but haven't gotten around to wanting to spend money on an APACS racket.
The APACS series of rackets has got a devoted bunch of followers, swearing by the quality of the brand's rackets compared to the original ones by Yonex.
So I'm thinking of going about proving whether that's true (for me at least), using a set of methodologies that I will soon develop.
The first step would be to choose the rackets that I will compare against. My first choice is the ArcSaber Z-Slash, a cult favorite among shuttlers for its "fastest smash speed" marketing. I personally own one of these, so it's a natural pick as well.
The ASZS also has the title of "most unforgiving racket", and that will duly be tested between the two brands.
The next one will be tough. I would want to choose a head-heavy one since the ArcSaber series is the even-balanced rackets from Yonex.
A look through the APACS range of rackets has left me with the APACS Foray 300, the replica for the Yonex Voltric Z-Force.
With those two in mind, it's time to think up how to best compare the two.
More to come, comments very welcome.
