    another word about the weight, with the stiffness but lower weight, the feel is between my ARC10 and AT700. slightly heavier than average, but not overly so. i played a few games of doubles with it and didn't have much issue adjusting to it.

    the stiffness is great for smash. the solid feel is excellent. feel is also great on touch shot. just the right amount of feedback.

    the racket overall feels stiff and lively. in fact, i think it beats many Yonex rackets in the feel department.

    ok. so this is really hard. a black racket with subtle marbling under the clear coat. it is very hard to not make it boring and stupid, and even harder to show the marbling underneath. this is going to really test my studio lighting skills.

    not successful yet.

    Yep, it's not so easy.

    In order to show the finer black details, you'll need to avoid too much contrast, ie. avoid white background. Use a darker or black velvet cloth as the background.

    And try different lighting, eg. 1 vs. 2 pinpoint lighting, or diffuse lighting etc, to see which one best highlights the fine black details.

    Now you got my attention!

    What are the specs of your UP?

    In all fairness, if the T2 had the same raw finish frame, it would perform better...
    ...so Kwun, you'll have to compare the UPro vs. Trinity Pro...
    ...sooner than later?

    according to Dink, the manufacturer has been very good with the spec. there isn't much deviation from around 93-94g and BP298-ish

    and with that spec, it just happens to fall into my preferred range as i am a ARC10 user. the ARC10 is slightly heavier on spec but since the UP for strange reason feels heavier than it really is, they end up around the similar feel in terms of swing weight. but the UP is quite a bit stiffer.

    So Panda is considering a Trinity Pro version?

    Just an IM (instant message), e-mail or phone call + 20 days for production + 5 days to receive.

    Do you mean 83-84g?

    93-94g is almost in the U range!

    I think the 93-94g means with grip and strings. Most of my pp rackets only weigh 8-10g more with zm62 + overgrip.
