    Contact one of them, the website has no feature for direct orders. Also, you might want to discuss the racket choice with Dinkalot (Dan Chien) - he has played most available rackets and will probably be able to tell you which PP racket performs closest to the Arc10

    @Avenger Yes, it is near San Francisco. Really? Well, I looked at the specs, and it has the same weight as Arc Saber 10. I guess I gotta read more reviews. I just need a backup racket just in case my Arc Saber 10's string breaks. Oh and I'll contact him. Thank you very much!

    Ultra pro is stiffer and more head heavy than arcsaber 10
    I think Trinity closer to arcsaber 10
    you should contact him, it is the best way since Dink tried many rackets including arcsaber 10

    I see. Does Dink live around the Bay Area? And I already contacted him. Just patiently waiting for a response. Thanks though

    Xhan - I assume you mean Ultra Pro?

    You can't buy a new Ultra anymore.

    Dink is located in LA area, near SGVBC and Disneyland I believe. I also recommend the TPro a an Arc10 replacement.

    The great Panda TPro diaspora has begun. Any and all recipients are welcome to opine on my stringing, and overall service.

    All rackets should be on their way to their new homes by Wednesday afternoon.

    Default Review: Trinity Pro

    Weight: 84g
    BP: 285
    String: YY BG65
    Tension: 30x33

    First Impressions:


    Build Quality:
    • Very sturdy, minimal deflection while stringing at 30x33 lbs.
    • Grommets don't seem to be as stiff as the ones in Ultra Pro, though not as soft as the ones in the original Ultras and Trinities which split very easily.


    Playability:
    • Good feedback through the shaft to the handle. No excessive vibration, but not terribly muted either.
    • Good control, no problem switching from an Ultra Pro which has a higher BP.
    • Sufficient power, no problem clearing on both sides, though not a hammer. The latter is as expected from a headlight racquet.

    2-Month Update:


    Build Quality:
    • Grommets just about hold up. Definitely not as strong as the ones in the Ultra Pro.
    • Paint job and frame hold up to minor clashes and being thrown around in the bag.


    Playability:
    • Not a particularly forgiving racquet, definitely demands a reasonable technique and sense of timing. This is probably more due to its balance rather than its other manufacturing or design characteristics. But, it's not an "effortless" racquet to use.
    • Feedback is quite good. Vibrations from shots come through to the handle without attempting to shake the racquet out of one's grip.

    FWIW. Thanks.

    @Quasimodo,

    Thanks for your review of the T-Pro; I for one found it very instructive. I'm guessing you are an advanced player if not a Pro...
    I have a couple of questions I hope you could answer...

    You have mentioned your concern about the quality of grommets. Does this in some way affect racquet performance after a while?

    You also wrote:

    Could you please elaborate on what you meant by the highlighted part?

    Thanks...

    yup exactly, that's why I hate Royal Mail
    it's like less than 5 seconds and they gone
    also, it's 7 in the morning, I usually woke up at 8 or 9

    DHL always call me before they leave (Royal Mail never call, even when there is my phone number on it)
