    Excellent. Any chance of putting a panda (or panda face) on the cone?

    Hm... I think it'd look a bit more realistic if you inverted the colors. The ears of a panda are black, while the face is white. So just inverting the colors on the racket and not the string would have a nice effect.

    Here's a somewhat crude rendering of such a change in design.



    Hopefully you can produce a more refined illustration.

    The problem is, it looks worse with the proper coloring
    White rackets tend to look a bit cheap too (like the steel ones you get for playing at the beach are usually white).
    I also don't like the pic on the cone - I think it would be better with just a little bit of text or something.

    Wow, those are nice, I better start a new post on a PPP design competition.

    Hey! Panda's are hep-hep-happy, not said. ...

    This morning from 12-4am we tested the PPPs. The prototypes are far too heavy and the BP needs to be reduced 10mm. I can think of only PeteLSD and maybe ViningWolff who will want to wield these beasts.

    On the bright side, the PPPs are very stiff, extremely solid and stable. Switching back and forth compared to by benchmark Lethal 50, the L50 seemed hollow, much less solid than the PPPs. That's something this Panda thought he would never say.

    We get quite a few dudes in Vancouver who wants an oval super stiff in 2U like the CAB 22.

    I wouldn't mind an over-spec or under-spec racket.

    Yeah, I agree. The design we had before these two was much better. The old NS6000 looked good in white, as does the new Karakal MTec 70 gel but other than those, there aren't many. I can't think what could go on the cone now. Perhaps something to do with NGP (Nice, Gentle Panda)?

    Dink, what is the BP? Also, what's the static weight like?

    BP stands for balance point. Or here it also stands for Boston Pizza and since
    they are up til 4 maybe they have the munchies and are going for a few slices. Panda is a big lad so needs his fuel.

    LOL

    I know what BP means, I was wondering what the BP was (as in a number).

    The prototypes were, no string, with original grip, plastic wrap removed:

    88g, BP 306
    90g, BP 302
    92g, BP 301

    For this Panda, the racket needs to be 88g, BP 285-290.

    BP of 306? That is quite a lot but I must admit I'm quite surprised - I thought the panda would like a higher BP for when he's hitting his racket breaking smash

    Anyway, Dink, I hope you manage to get it exactly how you want.
