so when panda quote 83-87 grams means the racket will be within this range? or i can specifically make it at 87g?

Yes and No.
It depends what Derrick has, which is limited as I'm sure he has sold most of it by now.

It seems a new production batch will arrive soon from China so perhaps one to your liking will be in it (read it was in about 3 weeks time).

I tried the T2 last night. Was planning to order a bp285 weight 86g U2 from derrick but after i tried the T2. I am having second thoughts. The T2 is a perfect weapon for doubles game. Excellent power for its weight, lightning quick speed and good frame stability. It smashes like a Ti10 and handles like nanospeed 9900. The only thing lacking is the dense feeling like U1. That is due to the thinner frame profile i think. But we got a winner here and i think every serious player ought to try out this racket.

Dan you're up so early??? Such dedication to your customers.
Sen jie, I have an 86.7g 290bp T2, and it's already super powerful, more than enough IMO. It's the perfect balance between power and defense for me, at most I'd drop it by .7g swing weight to make it faster, but that's what my Zelm PP10k is for. I will eventually get a second T2 as close to 86.7g 290bp as possible, but that's still some time from now.
HuangXL, I'd have to agree with you. Which is why I decided to make a DC stencil for my strings, but with white stencil ink so I don't irritate everyone by making their birdie a different color.

thanks for the reply!
at first initially i got such weight and BP as i am more of a arm than a wrist "wacker" i am looking for slightly heavier 3u racket. after some research(after having liking the yonex99 and n90)i came to a conclusion that i should be getting a panda racket which is ard 87.5g
and as for the BP,i am biases towards a very slight heavier head (as i am a more 70% offensive 30% defensive player) so that explain why i choose a BP of 300.
so that explains my conclusion.
i shall jus wait around to try out the new weapon first.

Another design aspect I must commend the Gentle Panda for: adding extra, large grommets at the 1, 5, 7 and 11 o'clock postions on the U1.
Restrung from empty frame to last knot in 29 minutes with no problems trying to thread the crosses at these points. (I don't use an awl)
Well played sir, well played.
Now to get back out there and bomb some more shuttes at Smash Master.

Package has not arrived yet. I was re-stringing the first U1 I got from you a while back. Those Zymax strings last pretty long.

Uline's 28" x 12" x 6" Corrugated Box aka "The Badminton Racket Shipping Box":
At $1.34 each, for the price and durability, it's an unbeatable box.
