    Hi guys~
    As we all know Apacs could be by far the best and similar clone of yonex rackets...
    So far I have seen people commented on the performace of apacs racket. However, I haven't seen anyone made an actual comparison between the clone to the actual yonex racket before.
    I personally have tried both, armortech 700 vs armorpower 700...
    I think armorpower resembled similar performance to the original one...
    If any of you out there knows anything about it please post it here hehe...;)

    (ps. I tried both racket, in the end I decided to be triff and went for apacs armorpower 700... before I bought the apacs racket the boss in the shop told me that the frames are all made from the same yonex manufacturer, but just painted with different brand... is this true or just lying to convince me to buy it haha??:confused: )

    Apacs racquets are much cheaper in comparison to that of Yonex, because of the brand and also because it requires less money to copy rather than to produce. however, after using apacs racquets, i feel that they are less durable than that of Yonex's, i know of a friend who broke 3 of the same apacs racquets. i recommend buying yonex racquets even though their prices are much steeper but you stand to gain in time to come.:)

    wow how did your friend break them? lol~ Tension string too high?
    Or just hes a bad double player who always colide racquet with others? hahaha
    How about performace wise? Do the swing and everything feel the same?
    Anyone know about this?

    (Is Apacs associated with yonex in anyway? hehe just curious because some claim they do..)

    No I don't think Yonex associate themselves with any other badminton company.

    hehe I am not too sure about singapore, but I bought mine in Penang, Finn Enterprise.. The uncle told me the same thing that its made from the same factory.. I doubt it too....
    But then for the price and the workmanship of the racket I think its worth it... in terms of durability I find the frame can get easily scratched..
    But other than that the performance seems ok to me, it resembles 70% of the real racket, easy to control and smashes are very accurate too. However armorpower 700 isn't that head heavy compared to the real one, and it felt more hollow compared to the original.
    Anyway racket dont make the player~ So Apacs is still a reasonable choice haha:D

    LOL, try reading up on 'Singapore selling styles' thread.

    No yonex factory that make in Japan rackets make clones, fakes, or other look alike.

    I read this 3 times, but the comprehension escapes me.

    "Yonex factory don't make fakes"?

    is this what you mean?

    What I heard is that Apacs racquets are actually made in the yonex factory, but it is the factory in Taiwan. But I have no idea how true this rumuor is. By the looks of people here in this forum, I think that it might actually be tru. They ahve different production lines, like the Yang Yang racquets which I've heard are also made in the Taiwan Factory.

    the Taiwan Yonex factory only makes low end rackets. even if what is rumor is true, that's not something to boast about really.

    this is not a satirical statement but factual

    i think every newbie should buy or try to play fake or clone racket because only then you would appreciate the performance of the real thing.

    If you can't tell the difference (yet), then you are still a newbie :p
    (nothing wrong wif that, everyone progress at their own pace, a personal choice)

    ya i agree with you.only started serious badminton training 6 mths ago.i really just cnt handle the yonex rackets especially mp100.all my friends have the highend yonex rackets of mp.(we cnt afford a at).i really feel the mp100 is head heavy and i tend to exert more strength to swing the racket.i have not developed my wrist strength yet so really using the clone does not matter.its still equally good in my opinion.the flow of the racket is also still good.anyway my coach also has a bag full of clones.he never uses yonex rackets now(not too sure of his playing days), so you cant say his a newbie as he is an ex-national.:D
