    A bit more testing today, and the Rev keeps on giving. I'm finding myself involved in more net exchanges lately, and I'm bowled over by how good this thing is there.

    Seeing a loose push coming my way, I'd storm in for a hairpin netter with supreme confidence not just in the accuracy - you couldn't fit a playing card between the shuttle and the net - but the communication even with the daintiest grip. I'm barely exaggerating when I say I could almost tell how far gone the shuttle was with my eyes shut.

    Tournament coming up next Saturday, so some restrings in BG80@32 are on the horizon - that was my go-to setup with the PPro back in the day, so it'll be good to compare there as well.

    So after a week of testing (a mix of singles and doubles -- 40-60 split + training sessions) I may have found THE racket for me. Enough to even make me contemplate about selling all my VTZF's and my PPros.

    Looks nice but could do with a few letters on the frame, say 4 or 8 o'clock, stating "fully woven frame" or something. :)

    If it was going anywhere, I'd put it at 12. In tiny, tiny letters.

    Only problem there is that if the frame design is the same as P Pro's Bravesword design, then that area at 12 o'clock is quite thin and narrow without much space for letters.

    Here's one respectful vote against that idea. No need for meaningless words as decoration on that naked woven frame. Simple beauty is most true. "Truth is beauty and beauty truth. That is all ye on earth know; or need to know."

    Agree with Fidget, I'm a minimalist when it comes to letters or extra decals.

    What, you mean you can't tell the frame is full woven? There's no paint!

    You can rarely do wrong by going less in terms of graphics / decals.
