    Unfortunately Dink and I didn't manage to meet up.

    But I did managed to get more court time with the 85g/292 Revelation. And not just any court time but some full power/effort jumpsmash drills!

    I was working on getting steeper angles on my jumpsmash while going all out power. i must have done around 100 of them? i was on the floor afterwards. Well, the angle did improve at the end of the session! However, that's more on the technique. On the actual repulsion, the sound and the KABOOM feeling of how the Revelation works together with ZM65@23/26 was just thundering awesome. I think was the loudest guy in the gym! The solidness of the Revelation just begs to be hit hard and harder. on retrospect, there might be some more headroom for maybe 1 or 2 lbs higher tension. the string was slightly overpowered i feel but going higher will zap even more power.

    All in all, fun, satisfying, and painful. Esp coming off a 50 miles bike ride in the morning!

    Ya really, isn't Boss the same ectomorph as Lance Armstrong?

    The Revelation looks impressive...

    .. but those legs?

    Well, let's just say that WADA won't be raiding your fridge just yet.

    Fidget, I did say he's an ectomorph. So you won't have to worry about any steroids in his fridge, but EPO.

    Kwun, only 2 best smashes? You should update the video onto that fella's jump smash thread from a few months back. Still needs more explosiveness, core muscles rotation and shoulder turn, but it's an improvement.

    at my age, 2 out of 100 is quite an achievement already.

    wait a minute, you're the young 'un here ... you're not even 40

    whereas I'm pushing 50, and Fidget is probably over that(?)...

    #1 is the ultra colour!

    #2 is the tpro colour (or as near as makes no difference) so it can't be this one!

    @dink: have you thought of a way to reduce vibration? With Kevlar in it, it might be something to think about.

    Mendell: my previous statement should have been more clear, due to the Kevlar mesh, the new Ultra Pro is more stable, stronger and has less vibration.

    The vibration is already minimal on the current Ultras so less is not a big deal; but it should be noted.
