Discussion in 'Badminton Rackets / Equipment' started by DinkAlot, Apr 22, 2009.
PS. yes I did check DCBadminton.net, no luck on finding things about T2 variations.
I think the most important change in the V2 Trinity were the cosmetics. Other rackets don't have several generations, i.e. there is only one Trinity Pro.
I think the profile of the control cap had changed from v2 or v3 onwards...
If I am not mistakenI think theshaftmighthave changed on one of the generations? AFAIK there were only T2v1,v2,v3,v4
I would also like the inof on what the differences are, mainly to diagnose which ones I have!
Pretty sure it has already been done before (listing the differencs for the T2 versions; v2 had the different shaft iirc. Other differences were concerning the pinstripes (v3 & 4?) and indeed cone (v4?))
pinstripes were v1 v v2, I think...
If you put 40lbs string tension , you will lost your the precision
By spanking this type of racket, the players have one less good thecnique of striking. At 28lbs its the maximun for me to have a total control.
Finding things in a 5000+ thread is a bit tricky. Would be nice to have it on the DC Bad website.
pinstripes were t2v1 only. t2v2 is no pinstripes. cone changes in v3 & v4?
shaft for v1 v2 v3 v4 is same for t2 as far as I know.
Considering that Dinkalot is virtually a one-man show with his Panda Power product, and has a day job, and needs to find time to eat to preserve that fine Panda physique .... I think we can cut him some slack for not having a website that enumerates all the spec and charms of older, unavailable versions of his rackets.
However, there is nothing stopping a knowledgeable client or re-seller from posting a very clear table of the differences in all the PP rackets (T2 in particular).
Version 1 - Darker red paint color; Pinstripes on the frame; Thinner outline on the "TRINITY" text; Thin cone; Slightly more aerodynamic than later versions due to marginally thinner frame and shaft (may even be just a thinner layer of paint); Possibly less durable.
Version 2 - Bright red paint color; Pinstripes removed; Thicker outline on the "TRINITY" text; Thin cone; Slightly less aerodynamic; Possibly a little stiffer than version 1 (was not designed to be, but a number of people commented that it felt stiffer).
Version 3 - As version 2, except with a wider cone. As far as I know, no further changes were made after this.
thanks for the highlight it again. this is similar from what dink informed me.
I still do not have any idea why some guys still think there is a v4 ....
Yeah I meant removed in v3 and v4
Because there are two v1's? Or two v2's ...
Here's the post I meant: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...ing-Tension!?p=1471986&viewfull=1#post1471986
There is one with a thinner (more expensive) shaft but had no noticeable advantages so was scrapped again ...
So I assume v3=v4 only with different cones: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...ing-Tension!?p=1457516&viewfull=1#post1457516
Somewhat confusing . Maybe v1.0 and v1.1 with the different shaft in a later batch only and no pinstripes regular cone v2 and armortec cone v3?
you should quote from Dink or Sketchy and not from other distributor.
pls remember version is different with batch .... they may similar version but from different batch ....
the version I distributed is the very last version according to Dink, and there is no other evrsion after that, because Precision was coming, then Ultra Pro, then Trinity Pro which has many batch, and the latest is with gold color ...
I am quoting Dan (although he indeed doesn't call them v1 to 4). Did you even read the first link, there were two pinstripe versions and there are two final paint schemes with different cones. Although at this point there was no updated cone version yet: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...ing-Tension!?p=1472018&viewfull=1#post1472018
Did you ever get the non-pinstripe with the old flat/non-armortec cone? Which Mark A wasn't getting I think (from v2 to v4 because "v3" was sold out)
Or was there ? I guess so and the above pic was a very old one just to show the paint difference http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...ing-Tension!?p=1478696&viewfull=1#post1478696
Or is pinstripe v1 the thinner shaft straight away (called T2v2 by someone was not corrected on this)?
the below pictures are for v1 and v2.
v1 = with pinstripes, flat cone
v2 = similar to v1 but without pinstripes
v3 = similar to v2 but with armotec-cone.
again, there is no v4, but maybe v3 with different batch/shipment.
