    I had my doubts about that all-black livery (especially as it seemed to be the way the Rev was going), but ye gods they're stunning.

    "Your pal" will only be disappointed if you don't post a picture showing how beautiful the new Precision looks on your inimitable dining room table.

    Expected: Wednesday-Thursday
    Late: Friday-Saturday

    So, Dan please tell us more about this P Pro. I've looked over the last few pages and don't see much, other than the stiffness in between T Pro and U Pro. How's the frame design, speed, power, defence etc compared to Precision and the other Pro rackets?

    First off, durability: very durable.

    Panda had an active international player test two Precision PTs for 4 nearly months now. This pro strings his rackets at 30-33lbs. with ZM62, NBG98 or BG66. He used one as his primary racket and the second as a back-up. He minimized using all other rackets. Both Precisions have held up. Panda figured one or more the rackets would have broken by now...

    ...imagine an active pro using one racket most of the time, with very high tension, thin string, trains 2 hours a day, coaches the rest...that's a lot of abuse on a racket.

    Speed: on par and probably a bit faster swinging than the old Precision. The frame profile is thinner.

    Power: significantly more powerful than the old Precision (assuming you can maximize the shaft).

    Had a few informal tests with different players and they are extremely impressed with the power.

    Let three different active pros try the Precision and they were like, "Wow!" But they are sponsored by another company so cannot go on record and say the Precision was more powerful than their rackets.

    The best proof: an active pro is personally purchasing 15 x Precisions, using his own money; when he can get nearly unlimited rackets from his current sponsor.

    Frame Design: a hybrid design. A mix of a slim 9000-X type frame with a minor Victor Diamond Shape Profile for extra strength. Think Panda has got this one right.

    Synergy: Panda keeps using this term to say a good racket has synergy, the racket frame, shaft, handle have to work for each other. The people that have tried the racket all said the new Precision has tremendous synergy...

    ...Panda hopes so.

    Here's what 100 rackets look like.

    Wait till you see mine with violet BG80 in it...

    Tbh, any string would probably look good in that thing - it's a perfect "clothes-horse".
