Not going to spoil the excitement of trying the racket by making up a review for those waiting.
taking , playing, and showing = ordering 4 more rackets
It being so purdy is an added bonus

Played again tonight with racket feels even better
Funny story was an exhibition of top players to get people out to the new club. Fellow broke a string
and his bag was on the other side of the gym. Since everyone watching and to save time since I know
him gave him mine. He played all his exhibition matches with it lol. Think that speaks of how well it is
put together. Even funnier was the glittering coming off the end cap in certain light condition. People
were going what is that. Reaction was cool from the young folks while older dudes were what's it coated with to do that.
Bad news my buddy after warming up trying my spare talked me into selling it. Had to think about it real hard but have more coming so said yes.
Very good reaction again from folks they thought the graphics were way better and really popped this time.
Looking forward to Fidget's actual review. Sure he has the community dictionary out and is going to

I wouldn't normally bother reviewing a racket whose prototype I own and (have already reviewed), but I have to append something official about the looks. I tried to take a pic of a strung Rev, but my card reader died, so I'll just have to describe it.
I thought the lettering would be silver... it's not. It's a pearlescent, hologram-effect, like the cone of the old NS9000X. Impossible to catch in a photo, but the light really sparks off it at the right angles. And that gold butt cap? Where on earth did that come from? Well done, OEM - whoever you are. I'm really glad the hoop has been left alone - the carbon weave speaks for itself.
Play-wise, I've had my Rev for a couple of months now, but I've been stadily getting better with it lately. Very odd, but it could easily be that my use of NS30 has "activated" it.

Funnily enough that buttcap looks exactly the same as the Adi Das ones (only different in colour and logo).
Have to say it is one good looking racket for sure. Is that pearlescent effect the same thing the Forzas etc. have? Only thing that still looks out of place is those Li-Ning like random arrows left and right of Revelation "<< REVELATION >>"

Panda Power Revelation Short Review
285mm BP 87g ZM70@27lb
286mm BP 85.9g ZM70@26lb
Racket Impression: With the transparent coating on the shaft and frame, the woven texture speaks for itself. Looks high tech and stylish, the simple design only makes this racket more appearing.
The original grip that comes with the racket looks cool and feels good. Better than the grip that comes with the previous Panda Power rackets.
Power: The syncnergy of this racket is obviously better than any of the racket that I’ve tried before. It would definitely give more power if compare to any other rackets with the same weight/BP/shaft stiffness.
Control: The sweet spot seems to be slightly bigger for some reason which makes this racket more forgiven. The control of the racket is superb and more directly. Vibration from the strokes is minimum, the feeling of the shots are more alive.
Conclusion: I ordered two more.

Just when I thought I had nothing else to say... the production Revelation plays better with paint on than the naked prototype.

Specs have been match for most buyers, and I'll be ordering strings first thing tomorrow for those who wanted theirs strung.
Pending refusal from a couple of pre-orderers, there may be two or three spares - specs to follow.

Thanks for the update.

Randomlegend, if it is any consolation during your long wait, I've had my Revvy for almost a week but have not had the chance to try it yet. (You are suffering a long engagement before the wedding whereas I've had the ceremony but can't seem to get on to the honeymoon.). Good luck.

All you "come on, come on!" folks are going to have to post reviews, you know...
02-10-2013, 11:42 AM #6372
That almost sounds like a threat.....think we can take him if need be, lads?
02-11-2013, 11:54 AM #6373
Can't wait. Hopefully I'll be getting mine today.
