    Yes on the pictures. :)

    Update: the rackets have cleared customs at the San Francisco Sort Facility and are outbound so Dink won't receive until tomorrow. Most of the time, the packages go through the Los Angeles Sort Facility and Dink would receive today.

    Not sure why it goes to SF on occasion...maybe the rackets like to meet Kwun first. :p

    The rackets are here and Dink has to say "Wow!" The rackets came out better than Dink thought.

    Pictures in a few minutes...

    Preparing badminton bag as we speak for its latest 2 visitors. Have to make it cozy as expect it will be
    a long term stay. :D

    May have to ship them here as probably too impatient after seeing the pics to wait til my visit the Panda trip. The -30 weather this week makes SoCal even more appealing to get my butt down there sooner versus later.

    Actually I was gonna say he must have minions right? Put them to work on whatever Dink is doing so he can deal with the important stuff -- like sorting the rackets :D

    I wonder if Mr. Yoneyama was pestered like this back in the early days of Yonex? :confused: :rolleyes:

    Cut the Panda some slack. :p He deserves some respect ... after all, it's his name emblazoned on the bamboo.

    Panda must be proud and happy, it seems like the Rev story was a never ending one.This racquet should be THE best all around racquet that Panda has developped.I am warning everybody, that they better get their orders in, ASAP, because it might take some time before the next batch comes in.

    Sorry, work is so crazy. Dinkie Panda is inspecting all the rackets now; these are the pictures, not so great but good enough for now (Dink hopes)...

    The thing that could not be captured on camera (yet) is, the text looks silver, but it reflects gold to match the butt cap. :)

    If that racket were a woman, she'd have rejected me already.
