    i'm also interested in finding out the stiffness of the racquet.
    also chance of a comparison with a relatively similar yonex racquet?

    Wondering, why have you chosen to go with a tapered shaft?

    I think it's possible to use 40lbs. with a softer string. I just got back from trying the Thunder at 35lbs. I had no problems clearing, smashing, driving, in fact my shots were very crisp. It was fine for 15 minutes until the string broke. It hits incredibly hard considering 35lbs. and only 85.5g. The string MP-XL couldn't take the tension. I think the limit for MP-XL is about 32lbs. within reason.

    I'm going to try NBG95 at 32lbs. and see what happens on Friday against Halim.

    I'm not condoning ultra-high tension, in fact, I advocate lower tension. I always say go with the lowest tension you can "tolerate".

    It wasn't my choice, the manufacturer made it tapered. It was an inside joke of sorts, to make a "Panda proof racket" because I kept breaking all their prototypes.

    The Thunder has a tremendous shaft, I don't think I can break it.

    Just wondering, what is Aero Power Box Frame?
    It moves like a AT 800 D, but can have immense power like a AT 900 P?
    You'll have to wait and see, I'll take pictures of the racket later today, I need to string up 5 prototype rackets and get ready to re-test on Friday.

    Oh and Dink, if you do produce them, how much are they likely to cost (if you don't mind me asking)?

    Also, can we have some pictures, please?

    Will answer in due time, gimmie a few more days of testing.

    The shaft is extra stiff but doesn't feel like it. It flex for me plenty.

    It's supposed to be 7.2 - 7.5 stiffness.

    I just got into work this morning and realized I missed 2 pages of Q&A. Actually, the tapered shaft is not really a joke. RSL is using it right now. So, how many prototype did you break before this one?

    Well, not just prototypes, normal production rackets too. Let's see...about 8-9 rackets mostly at the shaft. So they are using the APT (Anti-Panda Technology) tapered shaft to ward off Panda's bad karma.

    I know the tapered shaft is not a joke, I mean it was an inside joke between me and the manufacturer.

    A good bit stiffer. Let's say the AMP90 is about 8.0 out of 10 the Thunder is about 9.5. However, it doesn't feel like it because it's light weight, 85.5g vs. the AMP90 which is about 88g. It's hard to explain how it feels, I need to test the Thunder some more...also partly because it was strung at 35lbs.

    I restrung the Thunder at 30lbs. with NGB95, hopefully it will last.

    Looks like this panda sleeps from 3am to 7am. Probably has a nice afternoon siesta after bamboo snack.

    Pete's bro tested the Panda prototype last night. For some reason(s), he doesn't think it is that responsive. The Stickman get to chop the original string . . .

    Maybe it's too stiff and demanding.

    PPPs are not for everyone.
