    There are two batch of "Kevars". The first one were the heavy ones, here.

    The second batch, coming next week, are the normal ones: 84-86, BP290-300.

    I see...

    So the L in Kevlar stands for light version, whereas the non L version ie Kevar is the heavier version. ;)

    Function over form, at least that's what I keep telling myself. Now to decide what string to treat it to.

    So far everyone that's seen the racket really likes it to loves it...

    ...even the ones that don't like the color. :p

    Not saying everyone will like it but to this Panda, it's pretty sweet. :D

    At least we know what colour string you're going to use.

    If you know what's good for you, that is...

    I think mine will get BG80 at 32/33.

    I've mostly got white string. I think it will look awesome with yellow. I'll order green ultimax and g08 if it's a keeper.

    In case anyone was wondering, orange string on green racquet looks stupid.

    I've only got my current favourite in red. Not sure I can play with such a colour clash.

    I'm thinking BG80 too, haven't upped my tension in a while (from 24x26). Won't be afraid to tryout an insanely high tension with this one, even if I can't wield it ^^.

    Even though it might be good looking when you got the real thing in front of you i'm still disappointed that you don't have plain black racket anymore :(
