    Will ship out ASAP but it takes over 5 minutes to "prepare" each racket for shipment. Panda tries to do things right, at least to the best of his ability.

    This is the process of getting the rackets ready for shipment and why it takes over 5 minutes per racket:

    1) The rackets are individually plastic wrapped and secured at the base with a rubber band. The racket has to be removed from the bag...

    2) ...the racket is first cleaned with a wet microfiber towel...

    3) ...then dried with a dry microfiber towel. This is done to remove any potential toxins and residue. A microfiber towel is used so the finish of the racket will not be scratched...

    4) ...then the racket is wiped with an industrial grade Clorox anti-bacterial wipe that kills 99.9% (Clorox's claim) of the germs, including H1N1. One wipe is good for about 5 rackets...

    5) ...now the racket is "clean" and...

    6) ...can be inspected. The racket is inspected for consistent paint, consistent finish and all the graphics in proper order...

    7) ...next the physical inspection for: misaligned grommet holes, grommets all there, racket length, proper grip size, frame distortion, secure end cap, cone...

    8) ...next, "harmonic balance" of the racket, which is done by spinning the racket at the shaft. If the racket spins true, no wobble, the racket is balanced. If the racket wobbles, that means the racket may have a defect, depending how severe the wobble is...

    9) ...assuming the racket passes all of the above, the racket is now weighed with a digital scale (accurate to +/-0.1g). 1.0g is deducted from the actual weight as the plastic wrap on the handle weighs betweeen 0.9g-1.2g...

    10) ...now the BP of the racket is found simply by balancing the racket on the side of a table and measured with a ruler. Panda adds 1mm to the actual measurement to compensate for the plastic wrapper and slightly conservative balance point. To get the exact BP takes about 30 seconds of going back and forth. Getting a conservative BP, the BP minus 1mm only takes about 5 seconds...

    11) ...the BP and weight of the racket is written on the plastic cover of each racket and the racket is placed back in the plastic cover...

    12) ...after every 30 rackets (there are 30 labels to a page), Panda uses Microsoft Word's label maker and types the weight and BP of each racket onto an Avery 5160 label and prints them out...

    13) ...affixes the label to the corresponding racket's handle and then uses clear packaging tape to secure label.

    14) ...once 30 rackets are completed, they are sorted by weight and put onto a vertical racket holder (basically a big peg board) ready for shipment.

    No wonder it takes a whole day, sometimes more, to prepare the rackets for shipment.

    shouldn't this process be part of manufacturing? the inspecting and testing of the racket should in the manufacturing process with quality assurance.

    Nope, Panda wear's industrial grade Nitrile/Latex 2-Ply Gloves. Nitrile on the outside, latex on the inside. Left over stuff from Panda's car modding days.

    Yes, of course the racket manufacturer does quality assurance (QA) but it doesn't hurt to redo it.

    In actuality, the racket manufacturer does it once, my shipper (a friend in China) check it again and when the rackets get to me, once again.

    Better safe than sorry.

    oh wow so much work done after you receive the racquet. i guess effort = quality.
    and there is a much faster way to find center of balance than 30 s.
