    Wow... with all that kevlar, I'll know which racket to use next time I need to defend myself from flying bullets.

    Oh. tested out my 293/88 PUK.

    very interesting. very interesting indeed.

    the shaft is indeed softer, but the head frame is stiff and solid. this really give the PUK is very unique feel to it. i cannot get my head around it right now. but it is a good feeling.

    i was feeding some shuttles when coaching a beginner last night, the beginner was learning to do the overhead shot. i am simply feeding her clear very very high so she can have ample time to prepare and hit the shot. and it turned out to be just a flick of the wrist in order to do that. the stability is super.

    game situation was completely different, somehow the racket transformed, not the fastest of racket i am afraid, but offensive was excellent. solid impact, but felt.. stiff, but not the usual type of stiffness. just different.

    i need more time with it, but this is a completely brand new racket that is unlike anything that has come before it, none at all. so don't even ask for comparison. the big question is whether it is better or not. we will see with longer term testing. right now it is inconclusive.

    thank you for the description, it does sounds like different swinging style will render different results?

    it is kinda a heavy swingweight racket. so it'd be better for ppl who have preference for them.

    I measured mine and it was pretty much identical my MX80 - same balance, but the UPK is 2 g lighter.

    I was a bit dubious when Dink told me about the shaft change - I thought the "Ultra-ness" would be lost - but more and more it's looking like a stroke of genius; if this frame had been put on a 7.5 shaft... well, no human being could have used it.

    UK/EU Ultra Pro Kevlar - last one. 294/85.8.

    If nobody buys it, I'll keep this one as well.

    Need help with specifications of Pro Ultra Kevlar.

    What weight / balance and flex? As I said earlier, I am comfortable with Li Ning N90 and AT900P. I havent bothered to check the weight, balance point and flex before buying any racquet till date. This is the first time I am facing this situation!

    The effortless clears, which kwun has described is something I am looking forward to. I am ready to compromise other aspects of my game for it.

    Can you guys provide some pointers regarding the specifications, so that I can order mine?

    Thanks.
