    I hardly drink anymore. So having 2 kidneys is kinda redundant. So 1 kidney for 1 Yonex Protech 8. Sounds like a fair deal. Bonus is I lose a pound of weight.

    Beautiful machine, but how do you increase or decrease the tension setting? Is it that chrome button? One button for all the features?

    you just have to think "twenty five pounds".... and then automagically, it will set it.

    I'd try thinking "string racket for me while I read the paper."

    I hope Yonex hurries up and releases this machine so I can... still not afford to buy one.

    I wasn't able to find much information on this machine either. Any reasons why? Is it too "fresh" off the line?

    It was used in the LONDON OLYMPICS..............but still not on the market. I tried to order one through YONEX, but no availability date as of yet. Weird. I guess we'll have to wait.

    Only saw it in London and Japan Open. That was it. No Malaysia Open.
    Wanted to try it, but nothing to string on the later days for me in London. I played with it, I still like my ES5 Pro.

    At first glance, did you notice any issues with it making stringing more difficult compared to the existing espro5?

    I've just received the latest tennis catalogue from Yonex... and the PT8 has made an appearance.
