    Hehe, send one to a pro player (if any surpass you :confused:) and see if they use it in a tournament.

    i am just wondering, what is the point of having 40lb of tension?
    i can imagine that just 1 mishit would cause a real bad breaking of strings

    It's giving you an idea of the strength of the frame. In general, the higher the tension a racket can take, the stronger, more durable the racket is.

    Come on la. Racket no paint also can show us pic what.

    Anyway, there is a racket manufacturer in Malaysia that claims that "without it's paints, racket perform to its best".

    They are selling their top of the range racket without paint, ie. all black

    The brand is Kx

    excellent. these rackets look very nice. i assume that the trinity is a lighter/ more friendly variant?

    btw, i love the panda logo on the throat. it makes the racket look complete

    So now it is "Panda Power" "Ultra" & "Trinity" what happened to the "Thunder" ?

    One thing I am curious about?!? How flexible is the manufacturer you use in terms of selecting material for the frame/shaft?

    Could you choose advanced material like http://www.meidai.co.jp/tetras_eng01.htm for use? expensive Toray? CSCNT or CNT at strategic point?

    cheers,
    TJ

    The rackets will be ready in about 2 weeks with minor cosmetic changes to the shaft.

    Pricing, to be determined but definitely less than Li-Ning or Yonex pricing. :p

    Twobeer: the info you want is in the post, I'm using Toray.

    phandrew: the info is in the post already.
