    The nearest to what you want would be a low bpt trinity or tpro

    Wow! Imagine that, would anyone believe Panda if he said the Precision medalled at last week's European Championships! ;)

    Well, that could be in itself a bit concerning for DC. Are you actually sponsoring one of the players? Or is the player simply just using the racket as they currently have no racket sponsor? Either way, with a medal at an event, most likely the bigger racket companies will have made more lucrative sponsorships offers than what you have provided them if you have sponsored them =(. So it's a bit of a double edge sword if you think about it. Well, maybe I have it completely wrong, but I'm glad the racket made it on the global stage!

    The most obvious candidate initially was Air Conditioning with a very tough R1 matchup with a "slightly" flattering outcome. So that would still be my pick for the batch of 15 :p; and assumed others were flying the same flag and didn't get very far either. And of the medallists, there is only one flying the same flag but let me examine the others :)

    Don't think that was tactic, they usually have a pretty normal 'T' stenciled on, this was different.

    Didn't Dink say last year that he had met a German player who was impressed with his stuff? I couldn't find it on a quick search, but perhaps it was one of those Deutsche volk who played so well with a stick of Panda's bamboo. :confused:

    Demolidor is right :) Air Conditioning is the player who I believe is the one who is most likely to be using the Panda Power rackets :) (and yes surprised at his score, maybe his new training place is paying off!) still a long way to come all the way from The city of Angels just for one match :p

    Michael Fuchs spent a while in the U.S. participating in the league play, but he's not it. None of the Germans was it, in fact.
    Air Conditioning sounds like the best bet.

    Julie Houmann is sponsored by ReeAct but still worth examining that one :D. Although Dink also mentioned some (might) have camouflage paintjobs (believe there were supposed to be more than one player).
    Maybe it's Laybourn ;) (just checked and he is listed as advisory staff at YY so maybe not)

    Let me take that back: was sponsored by ReeAct, seems to be Thwack now indeed ... although I don't think anyone actually uses their rackets :D, so might be a good contender having played at US Open as well before.

    Ah I see her model: Falcon (5U?). Then Koukal must be using the Dragonfire :D
    Perhaps one of the Forza users then ...

    edit: okay, it's Houmann is my conclusion as well like Sternschnuppe mentioned.
