    GrandMaster Ted, the Trinity is very good! I really like it and a few other testers also really like it. One tester particularly like the smashing feel of the Ultra - extra stable and solid feel.

    The Trinity is like a head lightened up and shaft stiffened up first-generation Ti-10.

    As for the Ultra, meat cleaver pretty much describe it.

    I made a stencil and put the DC Badminton logo on my Trinity. The image I used wasn't exactly symetrical so I got some bleed from the backside (especially a problem between the 'd' and the 'c' where we have a very thin line). However, I'm fairly happy with how it came out.

    Hey DinkAlot, I have a question for you. Why did you decide to go with the traditional stringing pattern versus the new grommet system or no shared grommet system?

    Answers:

    1) Relative ease of stringing (everyone knows the pattern)

    2) Relatively stronger frame (less holes in a frame the better). At least that's this Panda's experience.

    3) Less string breakage up top. The tradition pattern has the least gap up top. The newer patterns have a big to huge gap up top, if you mishit, the string breaks quick easy because of support from the cross string.

    4) Tighter string bed. At least when stringing top down, Panda feels a traditional pattern strings tighter, crisper than the newer patterns. But this one is not a big deal.

    Note: the NS9000 string pattern is awesome, a close second for string pattern choice. Yonex was quite clever staggering the holes where needed, I just wish it had less gap up top. Panda was thinking of optimizing the 9000 string pattern but it would potentially take a lot of time and effort to do it right. The worst string pattern are those 88 hole string patterns where there are no shared strings but have holes and strings crossing everywhere. I just don't get it.

    I agree with you, as a stringer, I have hated stringing rackets with no shared holes, and I do agree, the traditional pattern is easiest to do. Thanks for the explanation Panda

    I understand the rational provided by Dan as to why the traditional pattern is used (especially since one of the key features of these racquets is durability).

    However, I'm puzzled why you find racquets with shared holes easier to string than the new variatons with dedicated holes for crosses ? I do not pre-string racquets and I certainly find the newer patterns easier to string, without the frustration getting a cross through an already tensioned main

    That's the difference, I always pre-string.

    Now, stringing at 40lbs. is a breeze. I'm stringing this one for Tommy (guavawang), shhhhhh, don't tell him.

    I got a feeling he miiight notice the tension is a little high after a few hits.

    I also see someone has new-er clamp system. I saw one of your posts that you had done those changes, but wasnt sure what the clamps were. Now it makes sense. Do you no longer use flying clamps? Is 40lbs too much for 2x yonex fly clamps?
