    The T2 is going to give you better all-around performance than the T1.

    The Genesis is not going to feel too head heavy. It's offset by the light weight. You cannot simply look at the BP alone, you have to take into consideration the actual weight as well.

    The Genesis rackets will have a similar swing weight to the T2.

    To answer your last question, no one produces head light, very stiff, lightweight rackets because you will simply get no power. A lighter than average head on the NS9900 is the perfect example. Takes too much effort to clear and smash.

    I have a trinity 1 with those specs, was just wondering if another racket was going to be produced similar to the T1, as it isn't produced any more and I really like the one I have

    You're certainly right about the Genesis specs though, looks like if I break the T1 I'll either have to learn to handle heavy rackets (I have a weaker smash and am worse all round with them) or go more flex with the T2, again resulting in a worse all round performance. Yes I know it isn't the racket that makes the player but it will be annoying having to adjust to a new racket again.

    Why does no one produce head light, light weight, stiff shaft rackets?!

    Sir, please do not speculate, the Genesis is not even out yet. At this point even this Panda does not know.

    I have a 280mm Trinity I too (although it's 86g) and it is quite a treat.

    Regarding other similar rackets, I remember that the SOTX Woven 5A was stiff, light and balanced ( if not a tad head light). I think you would find that similar.

    But only if we can inscribe some non-fiction onto the shafts of the rackets, like maybe something from Darwin.

    Ok but what is a guide for someone who wants to improve technic with racket?

    I know for myself that heaving Head heavy racket like AT900T, D900 was sometimes more hard to play when I was tired than heaving balanced racket. For smash head heavy is better because it help you get the speed but you have other "problems" with it like lack of control or net play, maneuverability,...

    I also notice that heaving balanced racket like Carlton VTT, Head PH8000,... I need to put more effort to get fast smash or powerful smash...But I have much much better feeling (racket and my arm are one while playing) when I use balanced or headlight racket , just I can feel that I can do more with it even if I do not get powerful smash at the end.

    So at this point what I should look at to get my "perfect" racket if both from this worlds do not give me all around - ideal racket.

    Regards

    p.s. 98% of my game is Single.

    Andrej, remember we talked about this (via e-mail) in detail? Yet you keep coming back with your "what's the ideal racket" question.

    Answer: there is no ideal racket because what is ideal for you will change.

    You stated to me you were an advanced recreational player. As of now you do not have the proper basics.

    For you, now, any non-extreme racket will do. The most expensive, best built, technologically most advanced racket is not going to make a big difference for you.

    Work on your game first.

    Who said anything about collaboration? Panda is off to trademark the name "Easy Tiger"...

    Sorry, Sifu Panda.
    What I meant was that a T2 would more closely match his T1 than Genesis, especially wrt the wt, bp, racket speed on his current T1.

    Sir, then you would be correct.

    The two performance differences between the T1 and T2 are:

    1) T2 a half step less stiff, 8.0-8.5 for the T2 vs. 7.8-8.2 for the T1

    2) T2 (in general) has a lower overall weight; average: 85.0g vs. 86.5g

    Aren't there any coaches in Slovenia? Ask one.

    If not, just buy an inexpensive ($50 USD) medium stiff, 86g racket and start from there.

    Sifu Panda, since you're online, gotta question:
    If I have a 86g T2 with bp285 that I think is slightly too headlight, is it ok to add a few inches electrical or athletic tape at the top of the frame to increase bp by 5-10mm? Any disadvantages, other than a tad heavier?

    You can do whatever you like, it's your racket, but 5-10mm is way too much for this Panda. Try increments of 2mm.

    ^^Thanks! Good to know. Yeah, it's amazing how even 3-4mm makes a significantly noticeable difference. This way I can fine tune my racket myself on the go, depending on my mood. In that case, in the future I'll try to get lighter lower bp rackets eg. 85g 285mm that can easily be made headheavier.

    Hello Sir Dink,

    My current racket is AT700 3UG4 new version, I love every bits of it. Reading your statement previously that PP Ultra II comes close to AT700 I decided to get one.

    Well, last thursday I just acquired Panda Power Ultra II, with BG66 @ 25lbs, 25lbs as my AT700 also strung with such tension, but after 2 sessions the racket still feel like playing 28-29lbs. The racket indeed very solid, fast (mine is BP288 and 86g), loving it, but I need much more power to smash compare to my 25lbs BG80 AT700. I believe if this problem solved the PP Ultra II would be my main doubles weapon.

    Looking forward to your reply soon, thanks in advance !
