    Question for Panda.

    what exactly is the range of BP and Weight available for T2?

    Panda Canada distributor (MJStrings) has fairly limited options of roughly 85g and 285mm.

    What MJ received is right on. Most of the T2s are swing weight 84.5-85.5g, BP285-288.

    The extreme range, swing weight: 83.5g - 87.5g, BP range 282 - 291, but those are few and far apart.

    Gram-for-gram, the T2 is one of the better rackets out there. For it's relatively light weight, it generates power equivalent to that of rackets 2 grams heavier.

    So for instance, the T2 swing weight is 85.0g, BP287, it will defend like an 85.0g racket but smashes like an 87.0g racket. That's what Panda set out to do and thinks he achieved his goal.

    A good example is this Panda's preference: For doubles, I used to wield an Ultra 1 in either: 87.5g, BP290 for normal play or 86.5g, BP290 against advanced players. Now Panda has changed to the T2, swing weight: 86.5g, BP290. I use this for all play regardless of the opponents. As a result of this change: defense and driving the shuttle have both improved noticeably. Overall attack has actually increased because power can be generated instantly with a snap of a wrist whereas with the U1, you really need to crank it. The U1 still hits harder ultimately when I get a "free shot", line-up and go for it. But in competitive play I rarely get that, the opponents are going to make you move. So again with the T2, I am able to hit off balance shots harder and faster.

    So, Panda, how have your opponents reacted to your new found power and improved defence? Shocked? Amazed?

    Or if they're also using Panda Power rackets, then that'll be an interesting game to watch!

    Please do not overact, as it's not that dramatic. Never claimed it was. The post was just for comparison purposes. So no shock or amazement.

    Why would the game be any different to watch based on the rackets used? The racket does not make the player.

    Paraphrasing what others have said, it's similar to the 9900 but with a bit more punch. I believe that's a good assessment.

    I would not say the T2 is "amazing", but it's definitely up there, it's definitely an excellent racket for the price.

    Your closest distributor would be Malaysia or Singapore.

    I suppose Panda doesn't want to overhype the racket to a high level of expectation...but I found the T2 amazing, I suppose, maybe because I was previously playing with a head heavy almost 2U Ti SP. I'm just singing praises everywhere because of new found power, swing speed, and its ability to let me delay my wrist flick, so I can play more deception shots.

    Anyways, thanks Panda!

    Well, I was almost going to use that term on myself... but I'm aware of the T2's downsides as well. Namely, its paint that chips and scratches very easily. And the flexier shaft that feels like it can almost snap with a very hard smash, and that kinda makes it hard to control the angle of a hard smash. Hopefully, more playing time will allow me to adapt to it.

    Eh, give me a month more. Then you can look up the term fanboi to see whether I'm still there.

    Hahaha... alright, let's not pollute Dan's thread any further.

    BTW, did you manage to try out the T2? I don't recall if you had answered my question from 2 days ago...
