pinstripes were t2v1 only. t2v2 is no pinstripes. cone changes in v3 & v4?
shaft for v1 v2 v3 v4 is same for t2 as far as I know.

Considering that Dinkalot is virtually a one-man show with his Panda Power product, and has a day job, and needs to find time to eat to preserve that fine Panda physique .... I think we can cut him some slack for not having a website that enumerates all the spec and charms of older, unavailable versions of his rackets.
However, there is nothing stopping a knowledgeable client or re-seller from posting a very clear table of the differences in all the PP rackets (T2 in particular).

Version 1 - Darker red paint color; Pinstripes on the frame; Thinner outline on the "TRINITY" text; Thin cone; Slightly more aerodynamic than later versions due to marginally thinner frame and shaft (may even be just a thinner layer of paint); Possibly less durable.
Version 2 - Bright red paint color; Pinstripes removed; Thicker outline on the "TRINITY" text; Thin cone; Slightly less aerodynamic; Possibly a little stiffer than version 1 (was not designed to be, but a number of people commented that it felt stiffer).
Version 3 - As version 2, except with a wider cone. As far as I know, no further changes were made after this.

Here's the post I meant: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...=1#post1471986
There is one with a thinner (more expensive) shaft but had no noticeable advantages so was scrapped again ...
So I assume v3=v4 only with different cones: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...=1#post1457516

Somewhat confusing . Maybe v1.0 and v1.1 with the different shaft in a later batch only and no pinstripes regular cone v2 and armortec cone v3?

pls remember version is different with batch .... they may similar version but from different batch ....
the version I distributed is the very last version according to Dink, and there is no other evrsion after that, because Precision was coming, then Ultra Pro, then Trinity Pro which has many batch, and the latest is with gold color ...

Did you ever get the non-pinstripe with the old flat/non-armortec cone? Which Mark A wasn't getting I think (from v2 to v4 because "v3" was sold out)

Or was there ? I guess so and the above pic was a very old one just to show the paint difference http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...=1#post1478696
Or is pinstripe v1 the thinner shaft straight away (called T2v2 by someone was not corrected on this)?

Panda started working on complete racket time line spreadsheet and well, had to stop because...
...Mama Panda has taken a turn for the worse (or better depending how you look at it). The experts say she can go anytime and probably has up to 14 days left.
Worse = she's leaving us
Better = she won't suffer anymore

I am sorry to hear that DinkAlot. I will have you, family and mom in my thoughts.
