    This thread discusses "Panda Power" branded rackets, designed by BC's own Dinkalot.. shouldn't be too hard to read the first post in the thread!

    The website say, we can choose our racket specs?
    This mean I can choose the balance point and flex level and weight?

    Have anyone done this, does it cost a lot to order it?

    Hey. Love the Panda TPros.

    Just recently busted another one though. Multiple mishits at the 11 o'clock position. Started off looking like a crack in the clear coat. Also busted two T2's previously. One of them definitely started off as a clash at the 5 o'clock then eventually snapped on a mishit. For the other one. I can't remember exactly how it happened but it broke at the 5 o'clock as well. 3 out of the 5 Panda's I have have busted :( I'd have to give 9/10 on the paint/clear coat durability (Karakal takes 10/10) with nary a blemish on my many mishits and scrapes. I can't give much more than average on overall durability. These were the only rackets I have ever broken after using Yonex (first 10+ years), Apacs (2 years) and Karakal (2 years). Been using Panda for about 2 years as well now as well.

    Still going to buy another one :)

    So, what are the P Pro specs again?

    What kind of frame design is it? Like T2 or P? Or completely new?

    Relative to T2 and P and U Pro, how's it compare in stiffness, attack, defence, power, feel, stability, etc?

    I had my doubts about that all-black livery (especially as it seemed to be the way the Rev was going), but ye gods they're stunning.

    Oh excellent news better make room for the ones coming my way. Guess I better work on sweet talking Dan on moving me up on the shipping list being the impatient fellow I am. Plus can't disappoint my pal Fidget with my inside scoop on how it plays.
