    How do you rate the following for Doubles (Allround) Attacking (Offensive) play, i.e. More Attacking and less Defense like moderate towards both?
    After your rating I can decide to for which model.
    Regards.
    I can help!!

    01. Yonex ARC Z Slash
    Only good if you have fond memories of Andre Agassi. Small sweetspot similar to an oval means that if you suck, with the Z you'll suck even more.
    02. Yonex AT900Power
    Everyone should have one. Like a decent toothbrush.
    03. RSL Diamond X3 Silver
    Who knows? RSL's are even more confusing than SOTX.
    04. Carlton Vapour Trail Tour
    If you can't beat them with skill, just angle it towards the light and blind them with the reflection.
    05. Panda Trinity or Ultra
    Some big Yank that talks about himself in the third person designed these, and he's played with more rackets than anyone has so he must clearly know a lot about rackets. Just buy one.
    06. SOTX Woven 12A, 8A, 16
    The 8A is like the girl everyone goes out with but nobody marries.
    07. LiNing N50, N55
    Who ever thought we'd see the day when "Big in China" was actually a good thing, yet here we are.
    08. Karakal rackets
    Karakal makes rackets?
    09. APACS Lethal 70
    One day APACS will grow up, and Dinkalot will be there with the embarassing stories.
    10. Victor BS09, 10, 11 or SW35
    If you understand Kimchi, get one of these.


    Hope that helps!

    Panda thinks Tiger's a much better racket reviewer and should take over the reins.

    Tiger agrees with Panda's synopsis, and requests Panda sends all his rackets to Tiger immediately.

    550VS = one of the top rackets I've tried in recent memory. Better yet, one of the top...say 10 rackets I've ever tried.
    I guess Panda likes the 550VS I traded you, at least it found a good home... Unless it's already in the racket burial ground....

    forza is a brand I haven't heard much of. This definitely catches my attention.
    I think it's because it's a European(Denmark) brand and most North American or even Asian stores won't carry them... I got Forza rackets because one of the local badminton centers used to carry them, but they switched to Wilson...

    I only just heard of them because some poor dane got smashed by LD and he had FZ all over him. Before that I had no idea. Still don't really.

    I thought forza liked to use a lot of Kevlar. That's all I knew about them.

    That and there's a racing videogame with the same name.

    Hey Dinkie Panda!

    Now that you have the T2's out, many of us are wondering how you would "rate" them relative to the T1's, which you had previously "rated" here:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...&postcount=599

    Do the Trinities finally get "Excellent+" ?

    Nope, here's what it would "be":

    Note: a change in the weight and BP could alter the ratings significantly.

    Panda Power Trinity 2, Swing Weight: 86.5g, BP288
    Overall: Excellent
    Ideal For: Doubles
    Play Style: All-Around
    Stiffness: Stiff
    Balance: Moderate+
    Frame Feel: Excellent-
    Frame Stability: Excellent-
    Racket Power: Excellent-
    Racket Defense: Excellent
    Frame Durability: Good+
    Paint Durability: Good
    Shaft Durability: Excellent-
    Comments: relatively durable, paint finish a bit better, good balance, good all-around. Very easy to generate power.

    Panda Power Ultra 2, 86.5g, BP290
    Overall: Excellent-
    Ideal For: Doubles/Singles
    Play Style: Attacking
    Stiffness: Very Stiff-
    Balance: Moderate+
    Frame Feel: Excellent-
    Frame Stability: Excellent-
    Racket Power: Excellent- or Average+
    Racket Defense: Good
    Frame Durability: Excellent
    Paint Durability: Good
    Shaft Durability: Excellent+
    Comments: less demanding than the U1 but still relatively demanding. Again, only powerful if you can flex the shaft otherwise it's just average performing. Extremely strong but thick frame and shaft. Paint is better but still not great. A work horse that's about 25% easier to use.

    .
    Why is frame durability only Good + and not excellent ? and how did you test that ?

    (I am interested , because I am thinking of getting one from Mark )

    sometimes the paint come off due to mis-hit or in some of my rackets (cant mention the brand) the paint would just start to peel off like foil , but it doesnt bother me cause I only care about the performance on the court
