    Huh, nearly the same specs as mine. Let me know how it performs - you'll get it much earlier than me! :/ (Shipment to Mark takes ages -.-)

    well, I'm in UK right now, so I will get it from mark too
    but considering me and Mark in UK, the shipment would be faster than you :)

    what is your Tpro spec that you pre order?

    Lol, imagine if you're using such racquets, a dozen(or more) Pandas chasing you to get your racquets and eat them. :p

    Oh, this has come to my mind. Has Panda ever bite or stomp on the racquets to test their durability? :p

    Nah, the shipment doesn't take too long to arrives but it's just us, waiting eagerly and unpatiently for the shipment to arrives. :D

    That might be true for you, but shipment to the UK took ages the last couple times, at least 2 weeks. A bit much, considering Mark will have to forward it to me, which will take another 3-5 days :D

    Shipment was super-slow this time because of Christmas/New Year, but in general it's not been bad - and Mark's always very quick in getting rackets sent out once he receives them.
    btw: My UPros came this morning - cheers Mark :)

    Yeah, I was glad it was the UPro that was sent out over Christmas and not a racket I ordered :D although, in retrospect, I should have - although with lower weight than my N90, which caused me a lot of pain the last week (string in my N70 broke during a tournament on Sunday and I chose the N90 as replacement).
    Anyway, I hope it's a lot quicker this time...or I'm gonna go nuts

    Eh. So I cant really expect a review before I receive mine^^ Specs I ordered are 86-87g, 296-298mm....I think. Pretty close to the N50II, but lighter with slightly different BP, should make it easier to bend the stiffer shaft. Gonna be a candidate for doubles, perhaps singles once I'm used to it.

    most likely my review would be rubbish :p
    don't expect I can review Tpro spot on since many new elements come in
    this is my first time using head heavy racket,
    the string is Zymax 67 (I use NBG95 before), and also I asked Mark for 22lbs (lower tension than my AS008),
    plus, I would try RKEP replacement grip (I always use towel grip before)

    Ah I see....well, I'm gonna use a slightly different string than usual, but with usual tension and grip I'll still be able to do a decent review, I hope :D swing speed and defense are not really influenced by the string anyway...

    I would wait for your review and compare it with what I feel when I use the Tpro :)

    Nope, still not here. The online status has not been updated which is very odd.
