    That is awesome. Did you honestly do that whilst playing and didn't just snap it over your knee or something?

    Can u help describe - the different characteristics of L35/30 compared with NP9900 eg. stiffness, BP, performance during play.

    How'd you break a racket in two places at the same time? Surely that's not possible.

    My thoughts on racket graphics:
    I always like it when things are all one color, but use a mixture of matt and high gloss finishes. Like you could paint most of the racket matt black, and then use glossy black or even the natural carbon fiber pattern for the design. With a fairly ornate pattern (like the MTec Tattoo has for example) I reckon it would look pretty sweet.
    Maybe all-white would be better for the IPod generation (or some other color)...

    Racket graphics:

    You could try 'color changing coating material' like those on Mugs ( changes color when filled with hot water). So when the racket is subject to high / continuous 'pressure/ stress' eg. a hard-smash or any power strokes, coated graphics would 'Glow' red or bright orange/green. Can be a 'glow-up' fierce Panda/Dragon head or entire frame just 'glows-up'.

    Good idea. That would look so awesome. I've no idea if that's possible though.

    I'd imagine that if Dink was playing with it, the racket would be glowing constantly.

    I'm pretty sure it's not possible. Using a racket isn't going heat it up very much at all - certainly not compared to the difference in air temperatures between different venues (I'm pretty sure Malaysia or Singapore are going to be quite a bit warmer than England or Canada) .

    You could use regular pearlescent paint though - the kind that looks different colors from different angles.
    Heck, if you want something really gimmicky, why not make the frame *actually* glow (using a few LEDs and some fiber optics maybe). It could be powered by the swinging action, like kinetic watches or those torches you shake to recharge.

    It'd weight loads wouldn't it?

    Pearlescent paint is pretty expensive as well isn't it? If money was no object though, I think it'd look quite nice.

    Hey congrats

    Yeah, it'd weight heaps and would be a generally stupid idea.

    Pearlescent paint is just one of those things that has a huge markup because it's mainly associated with boy racers / car modding. Used as part of the manufacturing process, I think it would be pretty cheap.
    And think how many rackets you could paint using the amount you'd need for 1 car.

    Racket graphics:

    You could have a black and white paint job like the colour of a panda. Black on the 10 and 2 o'clock areas of the frame, white for the rest of the cone, black at the t-joint section and white for the entire shaft and black again for the cone. You could name your racket something like "PANDA POWER". As for paint type you could use gloss.

    I was playing with Coach Don and the broke while smashing in a competitive match. Everyone was laughing pretty hard.

    Once the reviews are up you'll see, the NP9900 is superior in just about all aspects. That's all, nothing much to compare.

    Yes, the racket broke into three pieces at the same time. I have about 20+ witnesses. Panda went for a smash, felt the shaft area "cracking". As the smash was finishing, Panda was only holding the handle as the racket head hit the ground. The racket head and the T-Joint area were broken and bent over 270 degrees. Panda picked up the racket head, straightened out the shaft and it separated very easily from the racket. Wish I had a video.

    As for the racket design, need images.

    Decided on a name a little while back, it's going to be called the Panda Power "Pandamonium".

    Do a Kung Fu Panda special/limited edition one in collaboration with Dreamworks!

    Seriously though, the very first one has got to be black and white -with a panda graphics logo on the butt cap!
