    Hello there! The Jupiter, Saturn and Eclipse racquets have a lovely chrome shine on them. Especially the Eclipse series, there are two colours, one in Orange and one in Blue. I have both of them and they are lovely. Bling-bling!

    Jupiter and Saturn both have muscle power curve pattern on the inner side of the head, as compared to most racquets which are of slim head. Jupiter is more head-heavy while Saturn is more head-light.

    Maybe you should give it a go of buying one too! :)

    Haha. The oldest are just 3 months old, and the newest are just 2 weeks old.
    Paint chips? Well, the Strike 900 has one at 7 o'clock; the Mercury have two at 12 o'clock; the Neptune have three at 3 o'clock, 9 o'clock and 12 o'clock; and the first Nano Power 990 has one at the shaft, causing the letter 'R' to lose its' left leg.
    LOL. Why is that so? All due to mixed doubles' overly aggressive i-want-to-hit-give-it-to-me female friends. Haha!
    The rest of the racquets are just like 99.9% brand new. :)

    Hello there. The Eclipse 2 Orange and Eclipse 2 Blue are of same specs. Both are evenly head-light balanced. Racquet frame shows 84g though, tension recommended 27+/-3lbs.

    I have currently strung both of them at 28lbs with Protech's Absolute Gold string and it is very good to be used as a doubles' racquet.

    Well, I have not acquired the Mars though, same goes to the Earth as well. So, yea that's the two planet series which I have not acquired and most likely will not acquire as I have had enough of racquets for my collection.

    You can give the Eclipse 2 Blue a try, the colour is really nice on the racquet. Brightly chromed-blue, place the racquet head close to a white painted wall, you will see the glaring blue shining on the wall. LOL!

    I will show you individually taken photos of the Eclipse 2 Blue if you want. Cheers.

    im seriously drooling every time i see it.
    the nicest looking racquet imo.
    the only downside is the black line at 4 and 8pm or am. :lol:
    it doesnt go well with the baby blue

    LOL! Yea, the black band at 4 and 8 o'clock may look weird, but I'm used to it.
    The awesome chrome finishing of both racquets are lovely.
    It is not dark blue, but baby blue. :rolleyes:
    They are both head-light evenly balanced racquet.
    Good for doubles' match. :)
    Drooling eh? Wanna acquire them?

    Hahaha. Yea, Pluto. The smallest planet of the Protech series, although there are even smaller so-called planets discovered to be even smaller than Pluto. LOL!

    Cool, try to post your photos of your Protech racquets. Since you have Mars, why not present them? :)

Add the Protech Classic, Synergy and the rare Nano Titanium series then you can become a Protech distributor already bro....:p:p:p:p
