    A truly beautiful racket. Mine's a 87.2g with BP 302mm (says on the wrapper). Strung with BG80 @ 28lbs.

    The control was there but I couldn't access the power that was there. Probably the rust from not playing in long time. Need more time with it to see how good it is.

    Mark,

    have they been spoken for? If not, put me down for one please.

    Thanks,

    I've got one left unallocated - if buyer refuses, it's going to you.

    Time for some piccies of the Revelation, I think...
    Not the best quality, as the lighting sucks and my camera is just an ancient (3 megapixel) point-and-shoot type thingy.

    From top to bottom:
    Ultra Pro - unpainted graphite,
    Revelation - unpainted woven carbon fiber,
    Precision Pro - matte black graphite.

    The PPro and Revelation share the same frame design (note how the grommets at the top of the frame are not recessed in a groove), but obviously the Revelation's is woven.

    I might post a review when I've actually played with it a bit, although I'm obviously going to be biased...

    Correction: It's 87.8g with BP of 302mm. I think I'll change the strings to a black BG66UM @ 25lbs and get black grips as well

    Revelation is a stiff racket. Probably on par with my VT-ZF. Stiffer than my MX-JJS.

    I guess 2-3 months or so? It was a little while before Christmas when pre-ordering started, IIRC.
    The thing is, a woven Panda Power had been on the drawing board for much, much longer, and everybody knew that, so I think a lot had already made up their minds they were going to buy one, even before it actually existed - especially the faithful few who seem to keep ordering every new Panda Power that comes out.
    @Borbor - Yay for you! And very nice stencil too Let us know how the two of you get on together.

    I don't expect issues. My prototype was only .4 grams heavier with the exact same bp as this one.

    Other than my TR1, the racket section of my bag will be entirely populated by "endangered spieces"
