I am now holding a panda power trinity racket and I have to say it feels solid! Very similar to the woven 7 in feel (from swinging it around outside), only lighter. So similar in fact the balance points are identical, with grips and string on (Not sure what exactly as I can't find a ruler). In fact this is probably the racket I have been searching for since buying the woven 7 a year ago. The Woven is an amazing racket just slightly too heavy (for a defensive doubles player at least).
Now all I need is someone to play against to get a better impression.
All I can say is well done Dinkalot! Assuming it plays like a lightweight woven 7
Not sure it will stop me buying more rackets in the future though!

Thanks for the initial feedback.
Please realize every racket is weighed and balanced and the data is on a white label on the racket handle so you know exactly what you are getting. The Ultra ranges from 84.0g to 89.0g. The Woven 7 averages 91-92g, though of the 50 or so I acquired, I've seen anywhere from 87g to 94g. So most likely the Ultra is going to swing lighter.
But I assure (not sure this is a good thing), the Ultra is much more demanding. Ironically, just yesterday, the hardest hitter I've sold the Ultra to stated the two Ultras he purchased in 89g were too demanding, that it was too tough to use for competitive doubles. Prior he used 2U Cab 30s. At the time of his purchase, I told him the rackets were too demanding that he should drop to 86.5 to 87.5g Ultras and he would be fine. But now he's scared of the Ultra and said he'll use them as "novelty items...or...beating up pesky neighbors..." and purchased two Trinities.

Just got my Ultra (87.5 288) and Trinity (84.8 282) from the UK supplier,
and will shortly be off to string them.
Nice colour schemes.

I'm using the Panda as my primary raquet right now. No problem with defense etc.
I can flex it on quick flicks and when I dial in a smash, but on the most part it's a solid stick. I know the BP has changed on mine as I always strip off the main grip and replace it with a thin overgrip, making is head heavy.
Not at Boomstick status yet as I have yet to play more and get my swing back into form.

Sorry, should have posted my trinity specs:
mass 84.4g, balance point 280mm.
This has now adjusted to be more headlight due to the addition of an overgrip. It was the strung/gripped combo which had the same bp as the SOTX (also strung and gripped.)
As for the ultra, I'll let others play around with that, I'm not a particularly hard hitter nor do I have any problems with my neighbours
