    They are held, which is why I'm not asking for an ETA! I'm just excited. I'm sure I'm not the only one looking forward to reading some more reviews on it.

    Sooooo...I injured my wrist 5 minutes into warmup (it's been clicking a lot lately) so my session didn't last very long

    I'll post a review after I get some real time with my Kevar.

    I'm moving to Norfolk Island - just to be the #1 player on the island.

    Ye gods, it was causing me physical pain after a while!

    Apologies for the off topic btw. But they're lovely people though. And to be fair to them, the court isn't high enough to flick or clear... And they have to put their lines down in masking tape. So all things considered, they're not so bad.

    Default UK/EU order

    The EU order has gone in, so all you Brits waiting for your TPKs can commence with the toe-tapping.

    Default TPK Review

    This is my first review so here's a bit of background to frame my comments. My current goto racket is a VTIF (89.6g/303mm BP wet nbg95@24lbs) and I've owned AT900P/T, Arc10, VT70, VT80, VTZF, NRZS, NR800 in the past. I've played with my TPK Kevar (94.1g/298mm BP wet zm65@24llbs) for several sessions. I mainly play doubles and am an intermediate+ player who trains once a week. So my comments are relative to the VTIF. To me the TPK is faster in defense and I can generate at least as much power on smashes. Drives on both backhand and forehands sides have more pace and are accurate. Clears are effortless. Drops and nets are not yet up to par because I'm still adjusting to lower head weight. More time will tell. Overall, I'm very happy with the TPK and after factoring in the price, it's a no brainer. BTW, I have a second identical one and a third with a bump in BP on order....

    Good review, curious due to the catch your eye color nature of the racket if people are asking what it is ?
    I know for sure at our club I will have to explain and let at least 10 people hold it when it arrives. Then comes the famous reply "yes you can try it but if you put any marks on it you own it".

    Only one person over 3 sessions at 2 different clubs came up and asked about the TPK. BTW, already had a fairly hard clash resulting in a big paint chip. Surprisingly, it's not black underneath but silver. An ArcFB would not have survived the collision and not sure if my VTIF would have either.
