-Adding an extra cross (starting at # 8) is not recommended but doesn't significantly hurt the racket.
-Removing a cross, starting at #10 is definitely not recommended.
-"Indo Way": There's another way, we call the "Indo Way" or "Indo Method". It's short for Indonesian way or style probably because the Indonesians started/invented this way:
1) From the bottom, start at #8
2) Skip # 9
3) Jump to # 10
1) It increases the sweet spot
2) It relieves tension at the T-Joint
Panda's informal, unscientific findings using the Indo Method:
1) Doesn't increase sweet spot.
2) This can be somewhat backed up by the fact the sweet spot of the racket is in the center to slightly above the center of the string bed not at the very bottom.
3) Haven't really tested or thought about the claim it relieves stress on the T-Joint but stringing it, the Indo Way, the strings feel loose near the bottom; and Panda doesn't like that feel.
One positive aspect, cosmetically, from afar, the Indo Way makes your racket look different, distinct.
So, Panda doesn't recommend the Indo Way but at the same time does not feel it is a significant detriment to the racket.
If you use the Indo Way and feel it works, that's a psychological advantage so then...it works.

OK, one more: the top two strings look to be under 15lbs. tension as the string is not even taut.
There's more wrong but Panda will spare everyone.
Please remember, if you are stringing a racket, any racket and have a question about the string pattern, please ask for assistance. Panda always says, better safe than sorry.

I think that I got wrong stringing from your distributor in Australia. I did not notice that but j4ckie who bought racket from me remind me on that. He stated that head of the racket was deformed because of that.
Maybe that this was also a reason that I did not like the racket because of the deformed head shape.
I must also tell that racket was not so bad stringed as picture above but j4ckie notice some irregularities.

Okay, let's not discuss the story behind the bad string job. Oh man, I still can't believe what I see. This is so revolting. What has this stringing world come to ?

Well, some "experienced" stringers find it to be beneath them to look up stringing patterns and thus either use old ones or apply Yonex patterns to every racket. I think young enthusiasms (like me) often spend more effort on doing everything right, as they are new to stringing and have to look up several things....even if the stringjob itself can be a bit inconsistent at times, at least its the right pattern and no additional stress on the frame.
The guys from my clubs doing the stringing have secure customers (and dont do it professionally anyways), so they don't need to worry about the quality of their work too much as most ppl have no other stringer to go to and blame themselves if strings break too early.

Regarding Panda Power racket bag I have proposing what kind of bag I would prefer. I really like the design.
What I miss on this bag is thermal protection because I use it also as tennis bag and when the sun is out I think that thermal helps to keep racket cold.

Nice pick Andrej. You pro photographers surely know your form but...
Panda purchased that Technifibre VO2 Max the first day it was available. It's a gorgeous racket bag, one of the best looking. However, function is not nearly as good as the form. Once partially or fully ladened (filled), the balance of the bag is off. When you carry it on your back, the bag will sway from side to side. An unfortunate design flaw. Panda does not know why but may have something to do with the shoe compartment at the top, not bottom of the bag.
Going back to form, yes Panda is actually going to base our Panda Bag on the Tech bag (just not the function) so good eye.

my off-spec super heavy Precision is now the default "power" racket among my circle. when we need to do defensive drill, people borrow it to smash. because it take so little effort to produce a nice fast and good sounding smash for the defender. the combination of the head heavy balance, medium stiff shaft and ZM62 is a winning combo.
now i look forward to the Ultra Pro, with raised expectations.

I just recieved my apacs bag (AP1003 big orange one). Some things I like about is that it matches the look of my winter jacket. Things I'm disappointed is that the shoe compartments go into the 2 side compartments taking up space for more rackets. However everything else I'm happy with.
Is it me or most bags have the shoe compartment near the top when you wear it as a backpack?
