I wanna get some custom ones that say "Boomstick" or "Hand cannon".
yeah, Dink, I'd say there is market. I've had a few people ask me what I'm playing with.
We need to get some advertising done. That new Calton banner at the top of forum is well done, though you'd need to highlight the actual racquet more.
Maybe a quick video snippets of some bigger hitters smashing - cause everyone seems to be in love with power these days.

Is it just me or the handle grip is also shiny? XD Man I thought the RSLs were bright, that racquet is really going to distract me. Any overcoat quality difference between the electroplated and the normal black/purple one?

Hi, all. This is about the longest thread I've ever encountered on any forum, and I'm officially lost. Will someone please point to a summary of the comparison of the Panda Power racquets? Based on what I've read so far, I'm convinced to try one, but it's unclear which one would be right for me. Any help is appreciated.

If your confused, stay away from the Ultra 1. If you are beginner to intermediate, try out the Trinity or Trinity 2, if you have a strong strong arm/wrist, and like heavier rackets, try Ultra 2.

Ultra 1 (U1): very demanding and stiff. Think first generation 2U graphite rackets demanding. Designed not to break for heavy hitters.
Ultra 2 (U2): much less demanding. Still designed not to break but faster transitioning much more forgiving than the U1. For heavy hitters. Still a relative beast but a much friendlier beast.
Trinity 1 (T1): for all levels, beginner through advanced. Still very stiff but less stiff than the U1 and U2. Moderately balanced, very good head speed.

U2 (The band )
Compared to the ZELM Trixon8 and APACS Lethal 60
Longer than the L60 by 2-3mm but shorter than T8 by similar amount.
(Longest > Shortest) T8 > U2 > L60
Shorter than both T8 and L60 by about 5-6mm.
Frame and grommets
U2 frame is wider than the T8 but very similar to L60. Grommets are better spread out. The L60 is horrible with uneven cross distances. I think different cross distance will change the placement and size of the sweetspot. The stringbed should react differently. Whether it is good to be evenly distributed or not, I have no idea. My old YY Carbonex 21SP has evenly distributed crosses and it feels nice. Maybe it is a manufacturing/design overlook on APACS side .
Definitely the T8 is the least stiff.
L60 feels stiffer. Shaft itself feels the same but during the bend test (very subjective), U2 feels less stiff. I think it's because of the longer shaft (ie shorter handle) making it bend more. Hmmmm... I wonder if the U1 handle is the same size.
(Most > Least) L60 > U2 > T8
Very small grip with spongy APACS grip. Not so nice but can be replaced easily. Not the fault of manufacturer . Maybe I'll add an overgrip to make it bigger.
Trying it out on Sunday. Wish me luck.

Sorry about that SSTurbo, next time I'll write a longer response. That was done in between classes on my phone. But i do highly recommend all of them, they are all very good, some are just better suited than others for each individual.
And how's this. I like his rackets so much that if you buy one, and don't like it, I'll buy it from you for full price if you want.
