    Revelation: $165 equiv plus customs share (if any), shipping, stringing.
    Ultra Kevlar: $125 equiv plus customs share (if any), shipping, stringing.

    I am the UK vendor, y'know.

    I might have to make an enquiry for the Ultra Kevlar when it comes in. Have a feeling i'll prefer it to the Revelation due to the stiffer spec. Surprised no one has done a full and proper review yet, DSLR photography and all the rest. Maybe I might be the first lol.

    If I hadn't just picked up the MX90...

    There'll be a couple spare - same weight/balance as the MX90, in fact.

    Just so you know, the Ultra is stiffer than the Revelation by a little bit.
    BUT the new Ultra Kevlar is actually a little less stiff.

    They are very different rackets according to Dink. Look at the last post on page 391 for a more detailed comparison. There are currently no play reviews of the UK yet unfortunately because the racket hasn't even shipped yet but there are a ton of Revelation reviews earlier in the thread.

    Dan said the UK is inspired by the AT700. As for the Revelation, mine feels sort of like a more powerful BS10 but I think this depends on what specs you got.

    Panda just got back from testing the production Ultra Kevlar in detail. For some reason, it plays better than the prototype. Panda is not quite sure why but the production UK is more powerful and more stable.

    +The production Ultra Kevlar is actually a bit stiffer than the Revelation. It's a good thing as it's more powerful.

    +The UK holds tension extremely well. You may want to go 1-2lbs. lower than you normally do.

    Panda strung one at 30lbs. with ZM62 and it feels like 31-32, very tight and crisp; such a high pitch ping when you serve and drive.

    Strung another at 34lbs. with ZM70 and it feels "near perfect"; plenty of feel and power is still relatively accessible. To maximize power, would probably have to drop to 31lbs. though, not sure about the feel, will keep you posted.

    As for a comparison between the Revelation and UK, they are different:

    1) The Revelation is an all-around racket with high tech material, low mass, low footprint frame with maximum mobility and response.

    2) The Ultra Kevlar is a low tech, tried and true material with kevlar reinforcement to give you one of the most stable and strong rackets currently available.

    Ohh the production Uk turned out stiffer than the Rev after all? Very interesting.

    Curious which racket Panda prefers. Uk for singles and Rev for doubles?

    Everyone is different so choice is dependent on each person's personal preference. That said, if max swing speed and response is your cup of tea, then get the Revelation. If stability and solid feel is your thing, then get the UK. This Panda prefers the UK.

    Update: All the rackets have been inspected ready to ship. Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday so the rackets cannot ship until tomorrow, Tuesday.

    Hi there,
    I've some doubts, i've broke my Victor MX-JJS and i'm looking for a new racket, and I think the Panda Power Revelation could be the one, i've been looking for.
    How does it compare with the Victor MX-JJS, i've played with it with much of joy, but i also felt that i couldn't get the maximum power out of it because of the stiffness.
    How HH and stiff is the Revelation compared with the following rackets
    Victor MX-JJS (too stiff)
    Victor Bravesword LYD (too Head light)
    Yonex voltric 80 (too Head Heavy).
    Hope you could give me some answers.
    Greetings Erik

    ^ I have a 4U JJS (84.6/297). My Rev (85.8/295) is slightly less stiff, more accessible, swings faster, and hits just as hard.

    Why have all Panda's the old grommet system? All new rackets nowdays have the new system with in my opinion is much more stable when playing / stringing.

    No, despite my repeated whinings.

    Tbh, I'd take the old system over the Arc 10 one every day - the latter has the most exposed main of anything other than the standard Meteor pattern.

    If you compare it to Yonex VZF or APACS Lethal 110 for example were there is the zigzag grommets for the cross-strings. Does it have anything to do with high tension stringing? The must be a reason why they introduced it...
