    One session down, I'll have another one tomorrow afternoon with the UPK.

    So far, the racquet feels good and also the string job done by Noah is solid, ZM65 @ 23x24 lbs.

    this "different" feel is on point.

    This is my personal review after just over a week of training with the UPK (20 hrs):

    Just finished a weeks testing of my new racket, and so far its amazing, I like quite high tension (32-34 lbs) and its a joy not to have to worry about the frame breaking. The power you also talked about is just so true, and mine is a lot more head-heavy than Marks I have always thought control was the same on every racket, but now I know that is not true. This thing just gives so much confidence to play even the most unbelievable shots, both defensive and ofensive. The defence for me is the only thing lagging a bit, but Im also coming from a very very aerodynamic racket (RKEP XP70), I think I need a bit more time to adjust. The feel on this is a bit special to start out with, but it is really growing on me now, I never wanna put it down I just wanna keep playing and playing.

    Does anyone know how the UPK compares to Yonex VT80 or Victor TK8000?

    Let a friend try 85g bp 289 and he told me it played like a VT80 so I let a friend try it who owns a VT80. He played with it and bought it on the spot. He is restringing UK to 27 lbs to match VT so will see which he is using 2 weeks from now lol. Definitely liked the price compared to buying at VT here in Canada. Will update when I get his review.

    Good job I ran out last week. Think Noah in British Columbia has the last few in Canada left. USA are sold out I believe as well. Nice to see the UK well received hopefully get some more reviews up.

    Had few top coaches try the Ultra Kevlar and here are some of their responses:

    "Wow, so solid."

    "Nice but the string is a bit too tight." (First tried ZM62 @33lbs.)
    "Ahhhh, [the tension is] much better, this is so good." (Then tried ZM62 @30lbs.)

    "This thing hits bombs!"

    "If 'You know who' made this, I would use it."

    Update - my deal with the last buyer has fallen through, so the last UPK is now for sale again.

    I'll be away at the All England next week, but I'll be checking my emails and PMs.

    A durability test, then? Unless you have access to a high-speed camera in which case you could see how stiff it really is, as we're talking about the man who bent the Sw35 like a wet noodle with his smashes

    Just tested out my brother's new UPK (85.1g 295mm, original grip removed and replaced with karakal PU super grip).

    I didn't get to play with it much, but all I can say is that this thing hits BOMBS. I had to readjust my power as I was hitting shots long so easily. This is compared to 84.2g 297mm revelation.
