    It has to be Air Conditioning based on his/her training location. Otherwise how else will he have acquired these? Plus Dink has strung rackets for Air Conditioning in the past! :p surely he will have tried one!

    I didn't mean Thomas Laybourn. Another person who would fit perfectly. No footage either, but eliminated a bit earlier than TL^^

    Nothing, never mind, should not have said anything.
    Just waiting on the new Precision to get here, that's all. :)

    :D Ah yes, you mentioned a page back later on. As for Houmann, she has been using this stealth black beast for over 2 months already so don't know what to make of that now ... Of course the Panda mentioned several players could be using it and some/most in camo paintjobs.

    With a small brand like Thwack, she might have a customized racket/prototype...? I don't know^^

    Link for vid, please.
    Agree with what? That Panda was holding a black racket? All the prototypes are black, so what does this reveal? :rolleyes:

    Agree that that is probably the player Panda was talking about. And it's not the Panda himself :p

    You make it way too easy for them^^

    Naaaaaw, all wrong:

    Agus Wijaya Amphie is sponsored by Yonex
    Alistair Casey is sponsored by Pro Kennex
    Chris Ngu uses/sponsored by Yonex
    Siraroj Phanpuchara is sponsored by Yonex

    The only thing they all have in common with Panda is...
    ...at one time or another, they have all beaten Panda. :p


    Good try though. :D

    Just FYI, in case people don't know:

    (All four are high-level coaches)

    Agus and Alistair are both active International Players.
    Siraroj is "A", on the verge of being pro.
    Chris is "A-/B+" one of the best non-pros this Panda has seen.

    So for Panda, an amateur dinker, to be in the same sentence as these guys, with respect to badminton skill level, there's absolutely no shame at all.

    In fact, it's an honor. :D
