    Thought this quote was pertinent after testing the T2 for 3 weeks straight:

    "...gram for gram the T2 will hold it's own against any racket out there. :D"

    Why don't taneepak test out the T2 instead of arguing about an extra cross? :D

    Hey Dink

    I do know it's still really early to say. However I do believe that this information would be relevant to people looking into buying your rackets in the near future.

    How would the Genesis and Revelation compare to that of the T2 and U2? Of course, the rackets itself have not yet been designed but what are you hoping for the rackets to achieve?

    Cheers.

    Still too early to say anything as I'm still waiting for the production samples to arrive to see if the changes I made are effective and to my satisfaction.

    The U2 (soon to be U3 when I sell out of the U2s) and T2 will always be around with minimal changes/improvements. The T2 is about at it's technological and development limit. The possible improvements: the finish, upgraded grommets. The U3 will keep the U2 graphics but probably go back to the U1 stiffness but lighter weight 82-85g and more head heavy, BP300-305. We'll see. I have a few different variations coming.

    The Genesis and Revelation are different niches. Genesis slight attacking/head heavy bias, Revelation more an ultra-premium racket all-around racket. Think of it as a T2 plus with exotic material. But none of this is etched into stone.

    Bad color rendition, need to retake and tweak the purple...color temp was at 5,000K and thought it would do the trick, no so with Compact Fluorescent Lighting...no wonder photo pros still opt for hot burning halogens lighting.

    A U3 :eek:. So if I have one of each of the U's my racquet bag will contain.

    1. Super stiff & heavy attacking racquet & slightly head heavy
    2. Stiff & mid weight attacking racquet & even balance
    3. Super stiff & lighter weight attacking racquet & more head heavy

    When will you sell out the U2's, can't wait for the next one since I need some time to play the other ones :cool:

    And can you imagine, if you choose the extreme of weights and bp's of each series, you'll have 2-4x the number of different types of racket specs to play with!:eek::D

    I don know the specs of my U1. My feeling is 85g and bp around 285 too. It feels good as compared to U2 but very tired. U2 is more friendly but U1 is very very nice
