    Last week played with my friend...he is a club player from Nagaoka. He using Kumpoo, and Yonex Carbonex. He tested my Apacs Nano 900 Power (red) with BG80 strung at 24lbs. He is quite impressed with the feelings. Finally I sold it to him because looking forward to buy higher end apacs model ;)

    You can also add AT700 to that list as well . Yes as some reviewers already mentioned , the T200 play similar to the AT700 but the T200 is less head-heavy and more agile , much better in defensive mode and more solid all-round. Less stiff than the AT700 but power generated/swing speed generated from T200 is greater due to the design. The Lethal 50/60/70 are great rackets as well and rate them highly as well.

    since it is strung the BP will be slightly higher , the BP is measured at the point of your finger where the weight distributed . It is suppose to weight more than the 900t ,
    I dont know what spec you got for your T2 but I think Sir Dink mentioned that was actually the swing weight and not the actual weight of the racket stated there, anyway since T200 is suppose to be 88-90g I would not be surprise it would be heavier

    Oh yes staiger, i know it is definitely heavier than T2 or the 900T. I was just making a quick statement (albeit obvious though) and not complaining anything about the weight.

    But for the BP, I just measured it again and it is 305-307mm BP strung. I was hoping, before it arrives, that the expected off-spec would be moderate but in my case it is a little more than i was hoping for.

    hai guys.
    looking for a singles racket thts the most suitable for my playing style
    single club player for about a year now.
    im looking for a stiff racket
    i lean more on tech then on power.
    im got power on my arms so stiff rackets wont be a prob.
    so im looking towards an apacs racket tht fits my needs.
    any helps will be good ^^ cheers

    I suspect Apacs,Forza,MMOA are made by the same racket-manufacturer in Taiwan, so similarites are to be expected between them :p

    I still prefer the paint-job on the T200 :D , maybe FZ stole the design from Apacs , who to say :) ! I am lost for words

    From the forza website, it stated the titanium 220 was added to catalogue 12 March 2009

    http://www.fzforza.it/product_info.php?cPath=21_166_23&products_id=35

    while for the Lethal 50, earliest posts regarding the racket in BC dated back to dec 2008, and closer to january 2009...

    the two dates are pretty close, but is there a chance that forza actually copied from APACS?

    I think the T200 is just the paintjob, because the specs is different

    but when I looked at this for the L50

    http://www.fzforza.it/product_info.php?cPath=21_166_23&products_id=35

    and

    http://www.apacsuk.co.uk/apacs-rackets/lethal/lethal-50/prod_52.html

    for the Lethal 50 , it make me wonder if they are the same racket

    Which FZ model that you tried and which APACS model you are using now?
    Some Pro players from europe use FZ. Perhaps they're sponsored by this company.
    BTW, do they have Forza fan club? ;)

    Since when are Forza italian? ;) Ti-220's predecessor is Ti-22 which has to be older than Lethal 50 ... I see the 220 is already in the 08/09 catalogue. Should have the 07/08 catalogue stored somewhere as well ;) ...
