The Trinity swings about true to its weight.
The Ultra swings about 2-3g heavier than its weight. For instance, the 85.5g prototype I have swing like a moderately balanced 88-89g racket.
Everyone person is different with different swinging styles so it just depends on what you feel comfortable with.

Oops! Too late to edit. What I meant by the Ultra has no peer is with respect to the design. I haven't seen a racket made with a triple tapered shaft.
As for performance, both the Trinity and Ultra are any where from good to excellent, depending on your playing style but there's no way either will be "ideal" or "best" for everyone.
From testing (and breaking) just about every racket on the market, I have come to the conclusion that many here have known all along:
There's no one perfect racket.
Heck, even your favorite/perfect/ideal racket now could change once you improve or change your playing style. There are too many variables.
The one trend I have (just about) always seen though, is this:
As a player gets better, he/she goes to a lighter and more balanced racket (especially in doubles and mixed play).
Why? Your competition gets better and better and faster and faster as you move up the badminton scale. To a point where everyone can smash, everyone can play defense, everyone can...do any and every shot. At that level it's all about speed, especially now with the 21-Point System which Panda still does not condone. So a lighter racket is generally the tendency.

If a person can flex the Ultra on a consistent basis, Panda would definitely recommend that.

Everything is relative, it's too hard to quantify everything universally because all these words, even hard numbers such as the exact BP can be misleading because of where the majority of the weight of the racket is distributed.
The best example I can give for now (without typing many paragraphs) is an 87g AT900P and a 92g RSL X2 Gold. Both swing heavier than its stated weight. Both rackets will swing close to a 94g Cab 20 but both swing very differently. The 900P will feel like a sledgehammer with all the weight concentrated at the end and the Gold with all the weight concentrated in the middle, near the T-Joint.
+87g AT900P and 92g RSl X2 Gold swing close to 94g Cab 20
+900P, the weight is all at the top of the frame
+Gold, the weight is all in the middle of the frame
Results: in different feel and dynamics.
+900P will swing easy and feel that way, cutting right throw the air even though it's a boxy frame. It will be more powerful.
+Gold will swing a bit odd, doesn't swing decidedly through the air, but it will be better for control in blocking shots and stability.
Going back to the Ultra, I can only say that an 85.5g Ultra swings heavier than the stated weight, about 2-3g, yet it's moderately balance, definitely not head heavy (BP290).
All this and yet we have so many other variables to consider such as the 5g difference in weight between the 900P and Gold, different BPs, different materials just to name a few.
I just read all that back, it's also too confusing.
