^ This is actually from my email to Dan on Nov 7
So slight update to that review.
I have been using a mix of this Revelation along with a Cab20f for the last 2 weeks so I'm still not fully adjusted to it but I can say this:
The combination of the Revelation + zm 62 (2nd gen red) at 27lb is very very good accuracy and surprising amount of power from a 86g 292mm bp racket.
I say surprising because in your hand it feels even lighter than that. The swing speed is incredibly fast.
So fast that I would recommend people might want a heavier revelation as I actually had to start swinging a little later to avoid mis-hits. It sort of reminds me of a Bravesword 10 with more power.
Also a note about durability: I actually did clash it once on a medium swing with a solid metal object in my house (don't ask) and all it left was a tiny scuff mark. So small that I can now no longer find it when I look for it.
Conclusion is that I am either getting second Rev at a higher weight spec or waiting for the new Ultra Pro.
*PS. Customer service is top notch!

My Revelation is 298mm/88.7g dry. This is the racket i use when i play with plastic shuttles. NO MORE shoulder pains hitting plastic shuttles. My smashes become very powerful, need more time to adjust how i do dropshots though. Strange that whenever i use this racket, i just feel like smashing. Thnking to get an even balance to play feather shuttles. I like that there are many specs to choose from to suit ones need. Love it at first smash.

Just an update on the Ultra Kevlar (UK):
1) Estimated arrival date: December 27th - January 7th.
2) One change to the specs, stiffness target is now 8.2 instead of 7.8.
Panda tested the UK at both 7.8 and 8.2 in stiffness and the 8.2 was better.
Panda asked a top pro to test both rackets and he agreed the 8.2 was better.
Power was more easily accessible.
3) Color change: going to be all black with gold accents.

Looks great, will it be in matte?
Also, MJ.Strings seems to closed down, is there another retailer where I can demo these rackets from? Currently interested in the Revelation.

Sorry you're having problems with replies, I will try to fix that.
In the mean time, I would suggest you order from the closest dealer to save on shipping as shipping from the U.S. is very expensive. If it is a multiple racket order, please contact us and we'll try to find the best solution; thank you.

Darnit! I had just purchased my new revelation (which is awesome btw) and now I feel this urge to get Ultra K.
Which is more stiff, the revelation or ultra k?
