    messing around with grips might change the balance point, but it wont change the playing characteristic of the racquet. it will still feel as head heavy/light as it was before.

    LOL! I was thinking along those lines too. Now it got me to this part, currently with a 85.3/294mm(let's say that the dry spec no string+grip), would another dry spec Trinity2 at the same weight but with a higher BP say 297mm would have more flex in the shaft?

    My timing was was off cause when swinging to hit the birdie can feel the shaft already flexing way behind unlike the previous day.

    Yes I understand that part. The feel of the racket did not change but rather when swinging for smashes the racket head seems to 'lag' behind as the shaft somehow felt to bend a lot more (again "lags") before hitting the birdie.

    From 294 mm, a +3 shift wouldn't really register for me (but your mileage may vary); it normally takes me at least a quater of an inch (i.e. 5 or 6 mm) to notice. You are right, though - there's a definite "lag" at the start of the swing when the BP goes up. Being a defender, on 280-285 stuff, it's really noticeable when I try one of the stiffer Armotecs or something similar.

    It's known only as "Racket B" - a naked carbon prototype. I've been OK'ed to discuss it, so once it gets here I will do a deep quasi-review.

    Btw - how cool is the name "Racket B".

    No. To make it easy there are really just two versions (major changes):

    Version 1 has the pinstripe and lighter weight shaft

    Version 2 does not have the pinstripe and has a normal shaft

    No, sorry, the Revelation is on hold for now. The frame is just right. But for some reason, Panda cannot mate the right shaft to the frame. The shafts are either too stiff, too soft or just don't feel right.

    Instead, Panda is working on another racket...

    So, how is this "Clash of the _____" racket B going to be different from Trinity & Genesis?

    The Titan is not going to be made as it's very similar to the Ultra 3 (but the U3 performs better). The U3 will be nearly identical to the U1 in terms of specs. The U3 will have updated graphics and a better finish. The U3 is not going to be produced yet, not until there's more demand.

    Racket B is another animal all together. Panda is referring to "Racket C", which is currently being worked on. So stay tuned.

    I WILL need U3
    Seems like the Trinity 2 that I have the shaft somehow right now feels very much more flexible at 301mm from the original 294mm. Have again moved the BP down to 295mm by removing a little bit more of overgrip (usually wrap till it covers the cone). Will test it out tonight and see how's the result.

    Is it possible (which I hope not) that a defect in the shaft that causes this? I really hope not ...
