    I'm still planning on getting the MX-JJS. But was gonna wait for the Revelation/PPro next year. Getting both before XMAS would put a bit of squeeze on my wallet. :(

    Kid's college fund isn't until another 14-18yrs. I think I can make some extra $$ later to make up for $$ I take today. :p

    Any pre-orders and specs should come to me via PM or email... and I haven't even started my testing yet!

    Sir Dink: is the swing wt of the Revelation comparable to the P Pro? Ie do they swing the same given the same specs?

    Yes, the swing weight between the Revelation and Precision is comparable.

    Precision Pro and Precision = synonymous now. The old Precision is no longer being produced.

    How do people find their PP's finish? I've been using mine as a main racquet. It's been in action for approx 40 hours. The paint sort of flakes off the frame so I got this tiny spots of white around the to part of the frame - no clashes.

    It's purely cosmetical & I don't mind it at all (battle scars are cool :p). Also like one other(?) here, the end cap flew off on the 1st smash :eek:. There goes Mr. Panda's logo! I even said "oooo, flying panda", but no one gets it (a risk of being in the exclusive Panda club I suppose :D).

    Again, zero impact on performance. I'm curious - it just doesn't seem to match the rest of the top notch build quality.

    Keep up the good work Mr Dink! Next purchase is the Revelation & I'm setting the bar high ;).

    PS: Broke the ZM-62 string it came with. Am on BG-65Ti now, not as good but this should break in a few weeks ;).

    Yup, I've had that problem. It actually stopped me from selling it to a fellow BC'er cuz I had that paint flake off at the cone.

    ^^ Whew... that paint flake saved me for the Revelation. :p. But seriously, my P Pro too has a tiny white speck at 11 o'clock from a mishit. Good thing about black paint is that it's easy to patch with black nail polish from the wife. :)

    The Revelation will have a protective glossy clear coat.

    Going forward all other production rackets, if matte, will come with a matte clear coat.

    I've mentioned in an earlier post that a large amount of the butt cap logos had fallen off immediately (i ordered 6. and about 4 of them had fallen off if you remove the plastic wrap).

    I've not seen any flaking on the cone yet probably cause i wrap overgrip all the way past the cone. some slight "white" at 11 o clock..just do to wear and tear.

    Yah... sharpie works well for matte black, whereas nail polish for rackets with clearcoat.

    what kind of paint job would you put on this new racket or would you keep it just the way it is in the pix?

    ^^ No paintjob just clearcoat. If you have 100% all woven, you've got to flaunt it! :D

    It's true! The Rev prototype was a thing of pure naked black glistening beauty. :cool:
