    Ooh, I kinda like Xiphos (pr: Zif-foss) which is the name for the Ancient Greeks' swords.

    What about something simpler that has a meaning to most people without having to google it :p Like Pioneer or Prime (e.g. White Label Prime Mk1). I'm trying to think of words that have a new design sort of meaning to them.

    Another simple name: Proto

    Others I've thought of: Cascade, Vertex, Apex, Delta, Arc

    Or you could keep it really simple and trendy and use Alpha, Beta, Gamma for different models.

    Having said that I just thought of the Latin word: Paribus. That sounds good. Originates from Ceteris Paribus - All other things being equal (I think.....)

    I like the name, but I still think that Katana or something more easily understandable would be a better start. It's not like Katana isn't cool - "Whoa, what racket is that??" "Oh you know, I'm just using a Katana."

    Wont it be good sense to make the names a common theme? for example, the gaming company Razer names its mouses (mice?) after various snakes in the world

    In a latin theme, i could sugest Parabellum (prepare for war)
    On a more asian side, Zanbatou (if its a head heavy racquet) or Wakizashi (for fast head light ones?)

    Couldn't you tell that all of Maklike's names were weapons? That seems like a common theme to me.. :rolleyes::D

    Sample testing time is over. Now it's time for 300mm / 86g prototypes!!

    All the same, but all different. Which one will be the winner? Stay tuned to find out! :cool:

    None, except the one on the far right, looks to be sword shaped, or maybe my eyes are fooling me.

    How many actual 'sword' shapes do you think are available from any given manufacturer?

    There's actually two 'aero' shapes and two 'traditional' shapes, mostly for reference.

    I'm not closing my mind off to anything at the moment. I have a performance and spec benchmark that I want to reach, and that trumps any preconceived notions or ideas.

    Yeah, I was wondering if you are trying out multiple shapes, probably a good idea. So you are settled on this particular manufacturer?

    I think so, yeah. They're my 'preferred' supplier at least - there are a whole pack of companies out there that really don't seem to know what they're doing. They just follow what others are doing and have little idea about materials and even basic things like playability. This supplier has all the answers and has a handle on which specs and materials work best on what models, so they've done a heap of Independent work and research actually finding out what works and what doesn't rather than buy someone else's latest release and just copy it as best they can.

    But hey, we're still talking China here, so there's still a degree of 'me-too-ism' as well as some weird stuff, but it's to a degree I can handle so I'm cool with it. Probably more importantly is that there's no communication barrier and they seem to understand what I'm trying to do, so that's a plus :)
