    Tried out a Trinity this evening--280mm BP.
    I was very impressed with the power in clears and smashes. This is due in large part to an excellent stringing job by Dinkalot. But something else about this racket seems to transmit power well-- even from my poorly skilled arm.

    Crackerjack product Mr. Panda!

    First of all here are my Panda Power Trinity specs: 280bp, 84.4g strung at 23lbX25lbs with zymax 0.62mm. I'm an ok player (lower uk club standard, so nothing special) with a weaker smash but decent defence, I usually set the other person up for the power shots before finishing them at the net (or trying to).

    I have to say, my first few hits of this racket I could generate no power, clears were going nowhere. However control and defence was top notch. My initial though was that it was too stiff (far stiffer than my usual flexible rackets). I also had a few customary air swings, ideal starting at a new club...

    Then... I started playing a match, the strings settled in and began moving about the string bed and the rest is history.

    The control of this racket felt amazing, very solid feel and no feeling of unwanted forces going through the frame (twist etc.) Clears were effortless (compared to other headlight rackets) and smashes whilst not having the power of some rackets (on first try) were accurate and hard enough to at least cause some problems.

    Net shots were tight on the whole, although I don't usually have problems with those and didn't play many last night. Net play on the whole was great fun, so much so I kept running to the net in mixed, resulting in my mixed partner deciding to play at the back (it worked quite well, we won 21-12.) It should be noted I like playing at the net usually it just became more fun

    I agree with Fidget, it does transmit power well, although in my opinion doesn't stop there, whatever you do with your arm, wrist or body goes into the shot.

    So one very happy customer here, I don't know if everyone will find it amazing, I just happen to have found the "racket of the moment" for my current skill level. Before this it was the carlton airblade superlites/vapour trail superlites, which are still good rackets, just slightly too flexible now my swing speed has increased.

    Agree with Fidget again, amazing racket, now I just need another in case of string snapping during matches

    Here are some images of the second generation Ultra, they're still in China prepping to be shipped.

    Summary of the improvements/updates:

    +7% more aerodynamic due to thinner but much stronger finish
    +Target BP285 instead of 290 for better mobility
    +About 15% less stiff making it easier to flex and generate power
    +Stronger clearcoat finish resulting in a stronger frame surface
    +Removal of decals on the frame to further strengthen the frame
    +New, cleaner, more modern graphics

    Thanks again to Sketchy for the great ideas/design/collaboration!

    What "Z"? Yes, the U2 will be better than the U1 prototype.
