    Didn't have to twist my arm having a few rushed up North. Will be a nice treat for the new year.

    Apart from the "technical" improvements I still prefer the old (black/yellow) colour scheme. Think B&D v/s De Walt. :D
    Besides, this is really going to piss off Angie... :(

    ^My De Walt model got mistaken for an MP99 on Friday, so maybe the change is for the best:).

    There're 50 Panda Power Trinity-Pro coming in soon. Processed at custom (Richmond, BC) on Christmas Eve. Should be able to receieve it before the New Year. You may contact me via my e-mail posted on dcbadminton website!

    UK/EU rackets have arrived

    I hold in my hand the customs letter for the UK/EU shipment, so they should be here tomorrow or Monday:D.

    There will be two or three extra rackets over my pre-orders, and there is always the chance that some are rejected as too far off spec, so any possible buyers can still contact me and throw their hat in the ring.

    In the mean time, I'll get stringing!

    UK/EU TPros

    Well, here they are:D. Sadly, I've contracted the man-flu, so I'll be recouperating for a day or two, and I don't want to handle the rackets unecessarily while I'm contageous.

    In the meantime, feast your eyes - there are a couple of unallocated extras in there somewhere!

    Just in your bag? :confused: Or are you going to play with it, too?

    That is a handsome-looking racket.
    It has the dignified claret-red shaft of the Trinity 1 and an elegant black pate. tophat.gif
    And similar specs to that same T1 which seemed to have so few fans.

    Sort is half-complete, and all those who wanted 285-area rackets are covered (the specs have been extraordinarily consistent).

    Right, that's that flu shifted.

    I'll contact each buyer with their incoming specs over the weekend (and hit you all for money, sadly:)), then stringing and packing will begin on Monday as payments come in.

    I'm taking my own red TPro to court tomorrow, so I will report on it after my session. I have (good) suspicions about it already.
