    I only experienced the graphics on the cone peeling off my Ultra 2's. But I don't tend to wrap my grip that high anyways. So all my other rackets are still looking sharp.

    My paint doesn't come off with the black end tape from grips (I grip it all the way up the cone).

    However the one time I tried towel grip on my yonex it totally ate up the undergrip so I wouldn't be surprised if it took paint of the cone.

    I dont grip over the cone, but the cone paint is peeling off on at least three of my tpro: 1 yellow and two gold that I have noticed so far.

    as said by mr tactim,it's the paint in the top-cone area,where the cone meets the shaft,and it came off with the grip. i usually wrapping my grip up to the cone area,n never had this happened before. previously,i used ac102 in my tpro before changing to towel grip.

    I've had this paint chip off on my TPros (1st colour scheme), I'm not worrying about it, it's only a minor aesthetic thing and it's not like I'm going to be giving them away any time soon so... As long as the plastic cone doesn't crack like on my T2.

    Here are the specs:
    Panda Power "Thunder"
    BP: 290-295
    Dry Weight: 85.5g
    Frame Shape: Modified Isometric Aero Power Box Frame
    String: Ashaway Micro Power XL @ 35lbs.
    Shaft: APT Technology ("Anti-Panda Tapered Technology"): 8mm at the cone tapering to 6.5mm

    I would have strung the racket higher but I don't have any BG65 or BG70Pro and didn't know how high MP-XL could go, that's why I "only" went 35lbs.

    I'm going to test the racket out tonight and if OK, maybe, just maybe produce it.


    That sounds fabulous. The only racket i've seen so far, that has a stringing tension of 40lbs, is the Fleet Super High Tension. But, of course, i didn't try that high

    Hehe , how did you end up at that post from 3 years ago? Apacs Slayer 99 can also easily take 37lbs so most likely can do 40 as well

    Never trying that again, just had both of the ones I bought (second handadmittedly) break either within five minutes or on the stringing machine when being strung at 28/30. Will any of the newer series have same shaft spec and head shape as the trinities but cope any better with this stringing? Because I'm now flat out broke so I'm going to have to wait.

    That sounds fishy. I have been doing 32 to 33lbs (or simply 35lbs crank) on my 1 year old T2 and it is still very strong considering the amount of paint chips it has due to the slightly weak paint job.

    I never had my T2 strung past 27, but had been playing with my two original TPros strung at 28 lbs at every string they've had fine, just bought two second hand from cayzi and decided to have them strung same as my UPro 28/30 and they both pretty much caved under stringing. Ah well, stercus accidit.

    Strung Teebs' second Trinity Pro today (28/30 pounds), when I was doing the remaining 5 cross string, I had actually reduced the tension as I saw and felt that the frame is being irregular in shape (it does happen to other rackets too, including YY's rackets, but the change of shape on the Trinity Pro is far greater than the YY ones).
    Unfortunately, the frame still broke at the 2 o'clock position.

    What stringing machine did you use? Does it have a 6 point support system? If it does then you probably had the support arms set at a wrong point (I am guessing too high/north).

    Exactly, at very high to uber high tension, the distance between the north/south support arms should be closer together.

    I do have a six pt support system and I have put spreaders at 12 and 6 o'clock position. The other 4 supporting pts are right at the 2, 10, 4 and 8 o'clock position.

    At what exact points did you set the frame (i.e. in between which grommets at the 2, 10, 4 and 8 o'clock points)? I will compare that to my setup later.

    Note that this is 28/30 not 22/24...
