    i actually thought the current strips looks good.

    as visor said, it is all minor cosmetic differences. what is more important is how the racket performs.

    If it was known that the stripes were not right why wasn't it insisted upon that they were corrected before the first production run. After all as a consumer wouldn't you be disappointed to buy something new to find out it is not 'correct' and then to learn it will put right on the next run.

    May be 'What 07' has an infinite amount of money to buy new rackets, some of us don't. One shouldn't be expected to spend more money on a product that should have been right in the first place.
    This can be spun many ways. What if Panda said he wanted the gray stripes that way? Then it's done, end of story...

    ...but as Sketchy said, the gray stripes came out a bit different than what we wanted but it was not a big deal. If we were to redo it, it would delay the racket another 30-40 days.

    So, delay another 30-40 days and still not be sure if it's "exactly" right or produce the racket as is. Obviously we chose the latter.

    Looking at the racket in person, you don't notice the gray much. It seems to blend in well with the racket. No one has complained about it and even a few complemented it looked good.

    Finally, if we had to wait until the manufacturer got a racket exactly right, we'd still be waiting. Unless you can be there with the manufacturer step-by-step, it's very difficult to get everything just right. And what's just right for you may not be just right for someone else.

    Yeah, well said Panda Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against the cosmetic look of the racket. Performance is more important for me My comment above (the one with the sad face) looked a bit of a complaint, but actually it was not.

    You really can't be surprised that the graphics are likely to be updated. If you look at the T2, there are already 3 different generations - all with some slight graphical (and material) differences.

    Well someone has to fund Panda's research/development of rackets

    When will be the second production run be anyways? And will the design surely be changed/improved?

    The most important thing is that it plays excellently. If looks are important, then maybe buy a Yonex racket that'll cost double but not play as well.
    Exactly. Ask yourself what are you buying it for and whether you like it better with 3 grey stripes or 2 . I was planning to wait in any case, even if the cosmetics next time are horrible .

    Uhhhhh, Sir, there was no "correction". Both of Panda's replies were correct. Destricto was doing a play on words with "canon", so Panda followed along.

    Yeah I know, seeing the location from users it's mind blowing! This has got to be the most diverse forum I have ever been on!
    Still kinda funny thou.

    As disclosure...
    Grandparents = Both sides Chinese
    Parents = Born in Cuba, grew up in NYC
    Me = Born in Miami, grew up in Puerto Rico
    Wife = Born in Czech Republic (Trying to learn Czech but man... it's hard!)

    And to all the people that lurk the forum that I play with (and I know you see it because when I told you about my Panda racquet you already knew what I was talking about) you can probably now figure out who I am.

    And again, Dink you are ranking top 2 in service man. I have never seen emails replied so quickly (and so early cali time). 4 thumbs up!
