    Took the new T2 out for a spin today. New paint job is much more vibrant from across the hall. Felt almost the same, the new one was the teensy-est bit quicker. Then I double checked the specs and it was .1g lighter. Maybe it's all in my head. Overall performance is just as amazing as ever. I like how the new paint job is improved on the sides of the frame where the strings pass, but I preferred the more understated shade of red. But my opinion doesn't matter much, Sir Dan is the one who should like it.

    Update: improper stringing and/or incorrect string pattern voids warranty.

    We've had a significant number of warranty claims in the past few months. We have honored every claim even though we did not physically receive the racket back for inspection. Panda believes most of these damaged rackets are due to improper stringing and/or an improper string pattern as shown in the attached image below.

    Panda has throughly tested the rackets at their limits and has had some of the strongest, hardest hitters and extreme racket breakers torture test the rackets. In fact, to date, strung at 30-35lbs ECP, from all the testers, not one Panda Power racket has broken from a mishit or at the shaft. The only damage were two U2s broken at the handle by Panda.

    Because of this, we need to update the warranty claim. If there is a claim:

    1) Need to return the racket back to the distributor where the racket was purchased.

    2) Distributor will contact Panda and go from there

    3) The Warranty will be automatically void if:
    a) You cut and remove the string or alter the racket in any way.
    b) If the string pattern is radical or not proper
    c) Clashing and/or abuse of the racket is found/determined

    Thank you for your continued patronage and consideration.

    Best regards and grace be with you,

    What is the proper stringing method then? The Yonex recommended method? Just want to be sure and clarify for everyone.

    Yes, the Yonex traditional string pattern or thereabouts. We know there many be slight variations, as Panda uses one for the crosses.

    As long as there is not an imbalance, long tie-offs, etc... We are reasonable and can spot proper stringing. Improper string patterns are quite obvious.

    One-piece stringing is just fine. Again, any reasonable string job is fine, so there's no need to ask. It's the string patterns that are suspect or improper. Those are easily known/spotted.

    Bottom line: if you are unsure of the stringer, don't use him/her. Use only proper stringers. The string job will be better, string will last longer, the performance of the racket and string will be better and you will play better.

    That's not Panda's home (it's someone else's picture). This is Panda's temporary home (below). You can tell because there will always be a few broken rackets laying around.



    ...Panda is converting one of his bedrooms into a permanent stringing room.

    Not your spare room for visiting Canucks to crash for a while in spare room.

    Don't worry we are used to camping so will bring my sleeping bag and crash on the balcony next time.

    ps a little tip for you .......if you moved them from the floor by the stringing machine you wouldn't step on them and break them. Big Panda feet and 4u's badminton rackets are a bad combo.

    PeteLSD and SilentHeart would sell their souls to sleep in the room that stores all the Panda Power rackets and badminton supplies. ...

    OK, maybe not Silent but Pete, definitely, especially is the stringing machine is pre-set at 35lbs with all the ZM70 he can eat...I mean string. LOL!

    Panda is actually very organized. If you look closely (I guess you can't tell, picture too small), all the rackets on the ground are broken. It was just for show.

    To call that string pattern "improper" is an understatement, and I am pretty confident that Dinkie is the only manufacturer who would have honoured a warranty against it. Having that much loose string around the outside of the frame is going to lead to a radical imbalance of stress and strain at 3/9 when it gets pulled in; I'm not surprised at all that the rackets folded where they did.

    Received my T2's today and was completely sure I would like the old paint scheme better. Wrong, the new one pops really well as the shine to the red catches your eye. Makes you wonder on future products how shiny green would look against the black.
