    After abt 30 games, my views of ppro had changed. I had remind the bp at 308.Yes,it generate power easily which was the main reason for buying this racket though I'm nt the smashing type. At least it had help me to clear to baseline easier. I found that the smashing angle is also steeper.Though the bp is 308, its still a fast racket in defence esp the repulsion of the shuttle off the frame is fast n deep which also provided many good drive shot which I enjoy playing.I must said the frame is very stable which had help in my control shot.Even if I hit out of the sweet spot, the vibration is minimal compare to my SW35 which had a smaller frame than ppro. I think its becos of the frame design without the groove at the top that had given this improved stability. Who knows,maybe panda had set the trend for others to copy his frame design?I know I'm going to be one happy player playing with my ppro for a long time to come or is it until your new revealation come? The saga continues..........

    Just wondering if the Aus distributor is still taking orders? If not, is there any other distributors I can get these Pandas off ? Any online stores perhaps?

    Had 2 sessions of 3 hours each with the PPro. Mixed with SW35.

    Physical
    The racket looks simple and good. Matte finishing is great. Feels stealthy . The buttcap doesn't look good. Compared to the other Panda's, this unit's buttcap looks cheap (sorry ). I think the key to buttcap is simplicity. Racket is taller than the SW35 by 2mm. Need to verify by measurements if this is a stringing error or SW35 is naturally short.

    PPro : 27lbs, ZM62 White
    SW35 : 26lbs, BG66UM White

    The rackets feels stiff but not as solid as the SW35. It is by no means not solid. The slimmer frame profile has a different "feel". I mentioned previously that the Precision had a "soft" shaft. Repeat smashes with Precision was slower but corrected by the PPro. Smashes was steep and timing was not a problem. Shots felt loose but surprisingly in control. Suspect this is due to the string used. Power is easily accessible. Many shots went long probably due to racket combination with ZM62. SW35 + BG66UM felt more in control yet power still accessible. Probably will change to BG66UM when the string breaks. Shots placement are good. Net shots are good (IMHO a measure of the string more than the racket).

    Compared to other Panda
    T2 - Feels somewhat hollow. Not a good description. Not a fan of T2. Haven't seen sunlight for a while. Not used.
    U2 - Solid but not as user friendly. Probably caused by my poor technique. Haven't seen much sunlight since SW35 came along. Use when hardworking.
    P - Softer shaft. Speedy. Haven't seen much sunlight. Use when lazy.

    Maybe I'll take the T2 for another spin in the next session.*

    hey sorry i am not the technical expert:
    how do u get different BP/weights? cant believe that it is done in the manufactoring process of the frame- or is it done by adjusting the handle? And wont any personal grip change/frottee addition change these settings?

    thx for these "offtopic" explanations - nonetheless i am interesting in these new ppro racket for europe!

    The production process is not 100% accurate, which results in different specs (weight/BP). Of course anything added to the bare frame will change those specs, but the specs given by the manufacturer for orientation are measured without string and with factory grip on.
    Adding weight to the handle will lower the BP but have no impact on the handling of the racket whatsoever (adding weight won't make it faster!) apart from the thicker grip maybe impacting your ability to handle the racket.
    Adding weight to the head of the racket will increase the swing weight, make it more head heavy and result in a better follow-through and possibly make the racket more powerful (depends on the player and technique).

    Panda has no clue who that shop is. They're not getting rackets from Panda so he doesn't have any stock unless he's buying from an existing distributor and then marking them up.

    Hi panda,



    I've just bought a PPRO from a forumer here and just love it. I didn't had time to get used to it but i felt a good potential to this racket. Compared to my tantrum 300, it lacks some easy power (power is there but it's not as easy to get than my tantrum).

    The precision is much better and so is the feel.

    I'll play few games more with it and see where it can get me...


    Could you please tell me when you'll have new stock please? im interested in buying few more

    Bonjour Razor,

    The rackets are in stock now. Please contact your distributor Mark Appleton, thanks!
