    Trinity Pro Update:

    Current, 1st Batch: in stock but only BP272-288 left.

    2nd Batch: coming in 7-10 business days but BP unknown (probably over the entire range)

    3rd Batch: coming in 3+ weeks will be specifically BP295-300.

    If the time frame changes for any, will update, thanks.

    But those are only good for +/- 1g, which is not accurate enough for our purpose. What you need are jewelers scales, +/- 0.1g, which are much more expensive.

    I've got a small kitchen scale with 0.1g increments. There are different models, although those more accurate will take less weight - which doesn't matter as most can take at least 1kg...they're not expensive either. Mine cost ~8-12€, dont really remember...

    I considered the stand but I might as well get better machine if that is the case.
    Only free table I have is a coffee table... So it's about as high as your knees and it's worse to string on that than on the floor :)

    I've been eyeing a new machine for about 2 years now... I just need a house to put it into!

    The TPro's from batch 2 are not all spoken for right? I'm seriously going to buy another one with the same specs as what I have. That thing is just friggin awesome.

    Yea my kitchen scale is only good to the nearest .25g, and even that is an estimation.

    Yes my kitchen scale isn't that accurate, it says 0.5g which is good enough for me.

    Dink:

    Just thinking out loud here.

    Now that you have the new and improved T Pro in the T series, everybody will be wanting the T Pro over the T2. Well, at least till the Revelation comes out! :D:p

    actually the most important thing is to update the website with the latest racket released ...
    current website :
    - no Ultra Pro picture
    - no Trinity-2 latest batch picture (only 1st batch)
    - no Trinity Pro picture

    Maybe Dink can get a volunteer, someone who is like super active on the computer and updates the website with new announcements and such.

    Agree, Panda is way too busy stringing and shipping and is not a web authoring expert.

    Thanks Mark :D

    yeah, I think the website needs to be updated
    especially the Upro since Kwun did a great job with the Upro photo

    Not exactly. Some who want a more forgiving, more flexible shaft will still opt for the T2.

    Update: last time Panda compared the TPro vs. the Revelation PT, the TPro was the better racket!

    But different strings, different tensions...need to test both with the same string and tension so stayed tuned..
