    For singles or doubles

    This racket is good for singles play as good technique is needed to eke out smash from this defensive racket. This is not meant for doubles as the game demands power and speed and with this 85 grams defensive racket, it is not possible. One who has good defensive technique and drop shots can be a master with this racket. External factors on outdoor court is a factor and if there is wind, you can use this racket to good limit while smashing.

    However, on the indoor court, the racket won’t give you great smashes and it will be easy to lift the shuttle

    Will it break ?

    Nothing is permanent in this world but i used to play with this racket when i was an intermediate level player on outdoor court. I hit it on the ground for several times, also the racket fell off my hands but the frame of the racket never lost the shape.

    But the frame is not really strong as Nanoray 18i or Carbonex 8000 Plus so it is not recommended to hit the racket on the court in frustration or drop it accidentally, there is a good chance that it can lose it’s shape. “Handle with care”

Strings to use

  • It is an evenly balanced racket so the best suited strings will be BG65, Nanogy 95 and BG80 depending on your style of play. You can also chose Li Ning Number 7.

BG65 or BG65 Titanium is a defensive string which is durable with thickness of 0.70 mm but it won’t offer you much repulsion power and control on your shots. You can’t hit powerful smashes with these strings so ultimately it is meant for only intermediate or professional players.

A beginner can go with Nanogy 95 which is again a durable string but comes with a thickness of 0.69 mm. It is durable and one can also master up their defensive and offensive game with this. You can generate more power with these strings and it is highly recommended for beginners. However, it is a bit costly than BG65.

One’s who are more of an offensive player and want some durability, they can go with BG80 with a thickness of 0.68 mm. The strings offer more control and power in your shots and they are durable as well. BG80 is one the costliest strings in the market. Indian doubles player Satwiksairaj Rankireddy uses the same string in his racket. It is expected to power your game when you play with this Apacs racket.

String tension to put on the racket

The one’s who are just beginning their game, can gut it around 22-24 LBS. An intermediate can gut Apacs Finapi 232 racket from 24-26 LBS and a professional player can gut it from 27-32 LBS.

Remember the more tension you put, less will be the life of strings and the racket frame. Also high tension doesn’t mean your smashes will be very powerful, it all depends on your technique. High tension also mean that you will have a less sweet spot and less tension means you will have a bigger sweet spot. So for the ones who are new to the game, going for high tension will only destroy their game as they can’t just hit the shuttle from the sweet spot on every occasion and a high gutted racket’s string can break if the shuttle hits the side too sharply.

Beginner: 22-24 LBS
Intermediate: 24-26 LBS
Professionals: 27-32 LBS

  • Note: Don’t get motivated to buy racket if they have good amount of string tension holding capacity. High string tension doesn’t mean you can generate more power with your smashes.
