What has been the average wait from order to delivery??
The Revelation is calling my name....
Correction: It's 87.8g with BP of 302mm. I think I'll change the strings to a black BG66UM @ 25lbs and get black grips as well
Revelation is a stiff racket. Probably on par with my VT-ZF. Stiffer than my MX-JJS.
Looked what walked in the door at lunch time
I guess 2-3 months or so? It was a little while before Christmas when pre-ordering started, IIRC.
The thing is, a woven Panda Power had been on the drawing board for much, much longer, and everybody knew that, so I think a lot had already made up their minds they were going to buy one, even before it actually existed - especially the faithful few who seem to keep ordering every new Panda Power that comes out.
[MENTION=101108]Borbor[/MENTION] - Yay for you! And very nice stencil too Let us know how the two of you get on together.
I don't expect issues. My prototype was only .4 grams heavier with the exact same bp as this one.
Other than my TR1, the racket section of my bag will be entirely populated by "endangered spieces"
[MENTION=101108]Borbor[/MENTION], nice. What're your specs?
@Sketchy : now this is how you take a picture of the woven shaft.
That's not how you link to one though
(this is where it works for everyone but me and I look stoopid)
Ack! This new forum software is not agreeing with my S3 phone. Will have to upload that photo on the computer tonite.
S3? That's so last year.
Z10 is the NKOTB
@ Sketchy : all right... as promised, here's how you get the light just right to accentuate the woven shaft...

Yup, just as I thought, the PT wasn't a fluke.
Glad I ordered more than 1
Oh sooooooo gooooooood.
Well, that's all, folks - every UK Revelation has been snapped up. Kinda wish I'd got two for myself instead of one, now...
All buyers - feel free to review the racket (and my services).
Anybody who wants one from the nextshipment - whenever that is - can contact me with their details.
I have had a Revelation or two!!
Big up to Mark A!!
Two Revs just arrived at work
*** on a stick, especially with black ZM65!!
Downside - will have to wait until next week before I can play with them.
Thanks again Mark A
[MENTION=57143]visor[/MENTION] - A bit over-exposed, but very nice. I wasn't really trying to accentuate the woven shaft though - I was just trying to take pictures that are representative of how the racket actually looks (and in reality, the woven carbon is nearly black under most lighting conditions).
The only part I did try to accentuate was the iridescent silver finish, which for some reason always just seems to come out looking white in photographs.
I'll reserve judgement on the actual rackets until I've had more time playing with them, but I can thoroughly recommend Mark's service - very quick turnaround, very helpful and good at keeping you informed, packages the rackets safely (always good to know whenever Royal Mail are involved), and does an excellent stringing job (I always send my rackets up to Mark for restringing, not just when I receive a new Panda Power). So yeah, thanks Mark Oh, and sorry for encouraging the use of black strings
Well, well, well.....guess what was waiting for me when I got back from Uni today
I won't get a chance to play with it 'til Friday but I can echo the sentiments on it being absolutely gorgeous.
Also, Mark's service has been thoroughly top-notch throughout from the help he gave my girlfriend in getting it all sorted to the extensive advice and help he's given me learning to string. 10/10, genuinely beyond what one could normally expect.
Just looking forward to getting it on a court now
And did you act surprised?
