    Panda's Personal Racket: 84g, BP305 with ZM62@31lbs. (removed original grip and replaced with one layer or RKEP Ultimate overgrip) Originally: ~87g, ~BP295

    85g, BP285 w/ZM62 @25lbs.
    87g, BP290 w/ZM62 @30lbs.
    89g, BP301 w/ZM62 @30lbs.

    And stuff inbetween just not strung yet.

    Mine should be here just in time... to be a couple of days late for my tournament this Saturday. Bah!

    Still, testing should be done in a controlled environment. Probably for the best:).

    With the Revelation will a head heavier racket allow the shaft to flex a little more.

    Please think about that for a moment, everything else being equal: yes; and that goes for any racket.

    Great news, it seems that the lack of stock on the PPro will allow me to take this new toy instead :p

    I'll go for 2 revelation at 87gr weight and 297mm BP please

    Would love to try one of these. 87-88g / 285-290mm BP I think would be my preference.

    Panda bamboo is getting pricier. :(

    The fully woven frame and shaft cost is significantly more.

    The other rackets, non-woven stay the same. :D

    If you just are willing to sacrifice [your baby's college fund] then you can have all the toys you [don't really] need! :rolleyes:

    Is there a promotional price for Canada? ;)

    My preference would be 86-87g / BP 290-300mm.
