CENTRAL SPORTS TESTED

By popular demand – we test the ‘world’s lightest racket’. Apacs have become well known for producing lightweight affordable rackets without losing too much of that quality feel found in top end models. The Featherweight 500 ticks all the boxes you would expect it to. It’s light. Very light. In fact, Apacs claim it is the lightest racket in the world and it is definitely in that ball park - mid 70grams once strung and gripped. The specs say the racket is head heavy, but do not pay too much attention to that. The super lightweight nature of the racket means it does not feel or play head heavy. Overall the 500 is very easy to use and is impressive around the net and in defence. You get great whip and speed through the air so we found it suited an aggressive game style, but without compromising too much on those quick defensive reflexes needed in the modern game. Ultimately if you want a manoeuvrable lightweight racket without breaking the bank – this is an ideal place to start.

POSITIVE: Affordable lightness.

NEGATIVE: Colour-ways are quite bland


And the adoption of CNT (Carbon NanoTube Technology) had significantly improve the performance and feel of the racket.

This racket is designed to give you sharper smashes and at the same time let you enjoy the precise drop shot and netting play. The racket was developed with the new "High Speed Frame" which increased the Speed in the swing, and overall improve execution with Power and more Control. (* High Speed Frame design is an aerodynamic shape frame designed to reduce drag on the frame during straight on swing or hit). The Racket frame was developed with the new 'Reinforced Structure' which enable string tension of 30lbs. A rare feature for light weight (7U) rackets. With its light body, it enable you to move the racket swiftly like a sword and to deliver a very clean and sharp execution. The racket is a med/stiff shaft racket that will deliver more power even for beginners, as it will have a kind of sling shot effect. Due to the light weight and high speed frame design of the racket, Feather Weight 500 is an extremely fast racket and is developed to suit players who wants more SPEED.
