Which BTW the shaft of it is pretty thin compared to the TPro (could be my eyes playing tricks on me, I'll measure tomorrow).
I'm guessing with a larger diameter shaft you can use slightly flexier tube and keep costs down while maintaining same stiffness as a more expensive thin tube. Do you loose much on the aero of thin vs thicker shaft (he he he).
Also what is the theoretical advantages of Ti-mesh? Is it an overlay or is it embedded into the frame?

Delivery from HK is as quick as I hoped - I'm all set for the TPro to arrive! Although I should've included replacement grips....aw man. That's gonna take another 10 days.....

The UPro has been impressing recently. This past week, had three players at different times purchase TPros; they like it but watching them clear...Panda let them try his personal UPros (thinking the UPro was better suited for them) and to everyone's surprise, all three liked the UPro better so traded. Now Panda has no more personal UPros...
...maybe they all just wanted Panda's personal racket.
Time to string up some more UPros for Panda...

For those who would like to get a better idea of what the frames look like on the raw carbon finish, if anyone has ever seen or can get access to the old Cab 8 with Metal frame the shafts of those are raw carbon with just the Carbonex 8 Decals...

so.. any news about the second shipment of Tpro?
also, I'm curious, how long does it take to ship the Tpro from US to UK?

TPros not here yet, in customs.
Other question for "BUK"...oh Mark.

Its a shame the only RKEP grip to come in Orange is the Power Master grip.
I rather like the look of the Yonex Super Grap in orange on my TPro. Perhaps if I order enough, Eric can make me a one-off batch of overgrips. Maybe 50? I may have to resort to Klipper grips, which are very good anyways, just more of a pain to order.

Normally Panda prefers:
G5 Grip: remove original and replace with RKEP Ultimate or PowerMaster.
For Doubles and Mixed:
Weight: 84.0g-87.0g (usually ~85g)
BP: 288-295 (usually ~290)
For Singles (which Panda plays once in a blue moon):

Oh yes, all three UPros were 84.5-85.0g, BP294-295.
Grip: RKEP Ultimate replacing original.

Think it would make sense for Panda to chat with Eric and set up matching overgrips for all his rackets. Buy a racket get 3 grips and Panda can add a few dollars to the selling to get his money back. Eric will get future sales as people will want to continue matching up.

panda, I have two TPros coming with slightly different specs. If I like both (as I presume I will), how easy will it be for me to 'double up' and get backups of each? I don't think MarkA will have many spare...
