    Answer to why Panda Power Rackets still use the traditional string pattern:

    1) Simple physics, less holes in the frame = stronger frame. Stronger frame = more stable frame.

    2) Less string breakage due to mishits: less gap between the first cross string and the top of the racket.


    Why companies go to a new string pattern:

    1) String sales, string breaks faster due to mishits up top because of the bigger gap.

    2) Easier to string, especially if you do not pre-weave.

    3) Aesthetics: the string pattern is more uniform and looks better.

    Question for Panda :
    Doesn't the NSP give a more solid stable stringbed, due to less shared holes?

    Panda has tried quite a few prototypes, same frame, different string patterns. Almost always the old string pattern (OSP) played better...

    ...however, most of those rackets were originally designed with the OSP so just re-drilling the holes using the NSP may not have been a fair comparison.

    Panda just tests and produces what he feels is the relative best for the money.

    So I looked at the specs on your website. Is the Kevlar Ultra Pro considered even balance and stiff?

    Any idea on the price?

    You mean for the Ultra Pro Kevlar? If so, when will you host a demo session?

    Visor,

    I'm not quite sure if I understand you properly. So I looked at Panda's website on the specs and I notice that there is a range in terms of stiffness and bp. Are you saying that I can request a racquet that falls on the extreme portion of either stiffness and bp?

    Stiffness is random and not measured by Dink himself, BP and weight you can choose (from what he's got).

    i really shouldn't have opened the package that contained my Revelation at work. after staring at it for 15min, i wanted to make it a sick day and go hit with it during lunch hours. from now on, i will time my orders so that they will come either by monday morning or friday morning, when i actually plan to play during the night of those days...now i gotta wait three days

    back on topic, the racket frame is wonderful, it's wide and thin up top at 12 o'clock, and thick near the t joint, just the way i like my rackets. tho i play well with the z speed, i really dislike the frame. on the other hand, the revelation looks similar to the z force which i love. from just looking at the racket, my favorite thing about the racket is the butt cap...ok besides the carbon fiber that goes all the way down the shaft, the butt cap is probably something that's attracting my attention at this moment!!! probably the coolest butt cap i've seen, might be cooler than my wilson vertex or li ning n80 butt caps

    I don't know if this was suggested before...I also posted this question in the grommets thread.

    @DinkAlot - as an improvement to the revelation and precision pro, did you consider using T-Style shared grommet (found in yonex/li-ning) instead of the standard ones?

    I think it will help protect the frame better especially since they are all exposed and would spread the load better compared to a conventional circular shared grommet.

    If you did consider it was their quite a cost markup? Are there patents/royalties fees that would prevent you from using those style grommets.

    If you do know a manufacturer or source that could sell this type of grommet could you PM me the details, I'd like to modify all my existing precision pros to use that style of grommet myself.

    Chance it could be here tomorrow. If so will have it strung and playing tomorrow. Should be interesting
    if it can replace the Revelation in my bag. Then again with our crappy blowing snow today the plane
    might want to stay in BC.
