    Quick question...
    Is one of the new Adidas racquets called the "Precision Pro"?

    but so what? Unless 'precision pro' is a trademark, it's unprotected, isn't it?

    Can Adidas trademark Precision Pro? If so would Dink have to change the name of the racquet? If not can Dink trademark Precision Pro and then ask Adidas to change?

    Just wondering if there is going to be an issue since they are both named the same and it's the same type of product.

    Dink would just whip out a Revelation and everyone would be so awestruck they would rule in his favour.

    I guess adidas will already have trademarked the 'Precision Pro', but won't care about Dink as in comparison Panda Power is small fish It's also no copy of their product which they might care about.
    Pretty sure adidas trademarks everything before it's released on their FB page, otherwise you could prank them rather nicely by trademarking anything new they post first

    so the question still remains, when and if adidas finds out about dink, will they do anything about it since technically there is a conflict of interest no matter how small a company dink has? i guess we have to just wait and see unless dink changes the name first?

    I can't imagine that Adidas would waste time on a small operation whose product preceded theirs. Unless they have some Disney lawyer complex (those guys hunt down every infringement, right down to a 5year-old's Winnie the Pooh lemonade stand).

    But just in case, how many lawyers are BC members and might defend Dink, pro bono? ;-)

    I don't know about that - it's exactly the kind of thing bean counters get their knickers in a twist over. No doubt we shall see how prevalent said bean counters are in Adidas by any action or lack thereof.

    So long as you have proof that panda used it before adidas they shouldn't be able to sue you... even so it'll be a big cost just to defend yourself.

    Maybe settle with them and get employed as the director of racket design That'd make adidas a real threat to yonex/victor

    They probably can't sue, but if they trademark the name they might be able to force you to stop using it.

    Rename to Revelation Black Edition?

    Which is surely a review in and of itself.

    Hello all,



    I'll try a quick review of the revelation here, i've received the racket on thursday and played 2 hours with it yesterday so im not really used to it yet but i think i can give my first impressions. My rackets are 3U (87gr) with 297mm balance point

    Look :

    The racket look gorgeous, the nacked woven fiber with the pearl white inscriptions on it is just terrible. It gives a little hologram effect to the racket which is really great looking.
    From far the best looking racket i've ever seen, simple and nice.


    Warm up:

    The first few hits with the revelations showed an incredible speed, when you play with it you feel like being able to defend like god it's quite nice.
    Feel is great, a little less crispy than the PPro but i didn't notice my performance at net play and precision shots decreasing with this racket.
    The sweet spot is the thing that increased the most between the PPro and the revelation. It's much more easier to play with this racket, mishits don't result in punishment anymore.

    Match play :

    Starting with double game i think this racket suits perfectly with that. The speed gives you nice defense and drives are extremly good due to that. As the head speed is very high, im now able to turn down the racket very quickly when driving with oponents.
    Precision is very good as said before but the thing i regret on this racket is the lack of power compared to my victor MX JJS. I need to hit much more harder to get the power. Maybe im not yet used to the racket but as it feels much more lighter, i think it's not abnormal.
    Im thinking of ordering two more but heavier maybe it would be better.




    Thank you .

    And I gotta say the Rev is brilliant, it's scintillating!

    My Rev specs (88.0g bp292mm) was carefully chosen to be very similar to my PPro (87.9g bp295mm). As a matter of fact, I brought my digital scale to my very accomodating local distributor (he had this surprised look on his face ) in order to weigh the head on a level surface. The PPro was 38.3g and the Rev was 38.2g, bare unstrung and no overgrip. Very closely matched. I wanted it this way so that I can easily compare the 2, and also because from experience, that is the optimal head weight for a good balance for attack and defence for *me*.

    Both were strung with zm62 (my new favourite string... i just love the amazing sound, repulsion, feel, control, and especially tension retention ) at 22x23 lbs, pinging at around 1100 Hz. Any higher than this and I break the strings too easily on mishits.

    On playing, the Rev shaft is obviously slightly more flexy than the PPro. So the Rev is more user friendly with easier swings for effortless clears forehand and backhand. Net kill is also easier with just finger power. Defending smashes is likewise easier to whip it across court backhand or forehand. Power is very easily accesible.

    The PPro, however, due to its stiffer shaft, is more accurate in drives, smashes, and attack clears to the back tramlines.

    Feel wise, the Rev manages to communicate a tad more to the hand, despite having a slightly flexier shaft. So, short backhand serves, blocks, net and drop shots, are easier gauged and can be hit closer to the net tape.

    Too late in the night now... will write more tomorrow...
    Update:

    Some observations after a few more sessions.

    - finally managed to find a low enough tension of 22x23 lbs on the white zm62 such that the string doesn't disintegrate at the slightes mishit

    - very generous sweetspot, larger than P Pro

    - just when i thought i had reached max power of the racket, there's more power to be had when i really wailed on it some more! maybe it's the woven frame or perhaps it's the slightly flexier shaft, but i think i've been coddling the racket too much as it's still relatively new... but now i'm finding that the angrier that i hit it, the more power i'm unleashing from it in clears, smashes, kills... if that makes any sense. and i'm not even close to near the limit yet...

    Vizor, which version of the ZM62 are you playing with???

    The original version, which was about 58mm, the second generation that was 62mm or the latest version, which is supposed to be a tad heavier??

    Myself; I find out that with the second generation, I cant go over 23 lbs without breaking too often.

    With the original version (58mm) it is 19 lbs; if more tension and any mishit break it, with no mercy.

    Supposedly Ashaway will review its gauge, hopefully Dink will soon advise and explain.

    Because, except on some durability problems, it is surely an awesome string.
