    Relative to the "standard" stiffness chart, the Revelation's flex is stiff. It's definitely not medium stiff.

    All else being equal: from a scale of 1 to 10:
    1 = most flexible
    3 = flexible
    5 = medium
    7 = stiff
    10 = stiffest

    The Rev is about a 7.0-7.5. The UK is about an 8.0-8.25.

    YES! i can handle a stiff racket!!!!!! well regardless, i am extremely happy with the way this racket plays and the buttcap is very attractive to me...i don't know why, i really don't.

    if the UK is around 8, then on a good day i think i can play decent.........hmm.......

    and thank you, panda, for the correction!!

    Gun: sorry, Panda should have made it more clear, it's not a correction at all. You are "correct" in your assessment because it's based on your opinion, your experience.

    Panda was stating, relative to the standard stiffness benchmark, the Rev is considered stiff.

    *whispers* Panda agrees with you, the Rev for Panda feels medium stiff, which is a good thing.

    Clarification: stiffness based on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being most stiff

    There were a few Trinities:

    1) The original one was stiffer, say an 8.0-8.5 out of 10 (stiff)
    2) The red one with black stripes, about 6.7-7.2 (medium+ stiffness)
    3) The yellow and gold (TPro) was about 7.5-8.0 of 10 (stiff-)

    These are rough estimates. If the same racket, a head light one will feel stiffer than a very head heavy one.

    I eagerly await Mark's experiences! Would you mind including your racket specs (again) if you haven't already with your review? Thank you very much for sharing in advance!

    On the way out to try my UK's with zm65 and victor 850. Last night strung it to 38 lbs with no issues. Used zm70 and was more worried about the string breaking or my old crank machine blowing up. Weird feeling as never over 26 lbs before. Think that will be the last time doing that as play at 24 lbs at best. No sense commenting on it til I and a few others try. Curious to see if one fellow leaves the building with either a Revelation or UK. He is set on a Revelation after trying it but power is a big temptation lol.

    Fellow loved the Revelation too much said it does everything well. Is a doubles player so it being quicker by a wee bit made sense so it is now in his bag.

    I played for a bit and have what feels like a broken baby toe that is all swollen up. Will do a review once I can move around a bit more with the UK. What I can say is wow can that thing clear from baseline to baseline both on clears and backhands. I have a friend who had an old cab 20 and was always amazed with his backhands clears. Tonight with my mobility problems was launching backhands all over the place. We were using plastic birds and racket was strung at 21 x 23 with vs850. So looking forward to trying again when my foot heals up a bit.

    Specs will be included, but I played a 295/85, for the record.

    Which AT700, Mr Nanomeasure? V1, V2, V3 or the Superbrands or the Special Edition? On such delicate differences, rests the decision that may alter the course of my game forever...

    it may matter to me as I'm sensitive to it... but for your game and some others, it won't matter much ...

    I haven't got an MX90, nor have I tested one, but I can compare it to an MX80:

    More stable, hits harder.

    The Ultra frame shape is based on AT700 like the original Trinity was based on the Ti-10 . And then it all went astray .
