    1) I use 4 x Hi Qua Blue Fly Clamps for the mains (two on each side staggered)

    2) I use 2 x Yonex Black Fly Clamps for the crosses staggered

    3) I have upgraded to Gamma cam locks with Hi-Qua heavy duty badminton clamps with modded bearings which are very strong and stable. I only use these to start stringing (no starting clamp needed) and clamp the extreme mains.

    You and your eye for detail. I took that picture for Ashaway's marketing.

    I didn't really string the racket. After I took the picture, I loosened up the string. Tommy doesn't like 40lbs.

    But the Panda in the photo will also be a good marketing tool for Ashaway .

    Tommy will need to see Dr Jiang (spelling?) if he were to play with a 40 lbs string job !!!

    Sir Dink, I have to ask this:
    How reliable is that meter?

    The Ashaway ZM70 at 33 pounds on my Ultra feels a lot less tight than any of the 30-pound Yonex BG-66 stringbeds on my other racquets. In fact, it's less tight than the two-week old stringbed on one of my Apacs racquets (which, I believe, is now only at around 27 pounds at best).

    So, what's it that has gone wrong?

    Could it be that a week's transit has killed the tension?
    If so, could the tension drop by as much as 6 to 7 pounds?

    After this week, I'm planning to restring it over here.
    The trouble is finding someone who will do 33+ for me

    Sir, I'm a bit disappointed in you. You cannot compare BG66 to ZM70, it's like comparing BG66 to BG65. Of course BG66 is going to play much tighter, it's a much thinner string. When I string BG66 at 31lbs., I have to string BG65 at about 35lbs. to get a similar feel. I thought you knew this.

    And ZM70 is a bit thicker than BG65 so it will make it even more so.

    So what is the point of strining 40lbs if it feels like "normal" strings @ 34lbs (sorry cold not resist the joke)...

    Grrrr... I thought the 70 in ZM70 was just another number.
    I imagined it as similar to the BG-66... I should have checked!

    By the way, I can't find anything on its thickness at Ashaway USA

    Anyway, the saving grace is the enormous kick the racquet generates!

    I believe that ZM67 is .67mm before tensioning and ZM70 is .7mm before tensioning.

    It's hard to compare directly to Yonex because Yonex numbers are after tensioning (which seems much less accurate because the higher the tension, the more the string should stretch).

    Do you really play with BG66 at 30lbs? How long does that last you?

    I wonder about to too because, althought it would be nice, if I played with BG66 @ 31lbs., there would be a lot of broken strings every time I played.

I add weight to the head and that makes the racquet tick and plays much better than before. However, I will not say it is better or worse than Cab30ms because I still gets better shot placement on my Cab30 and more use to it.
    I've been lurking in this thread for quite a while... Was curious what a fellow CAB30 user thought of it... Maybe i'll be a little more patient before i part with my 5 CAB 30s... Thanks for ur thoughts silentheart.

    Please check out Post # 324. Oh wait, it doesn't compare the Cab 30 to the Trinity directly.

    John aka "Xiaohou" on BC is the quintessential Cab 30 user and he switched to the Trinity.

    I will get him to do a direct comparison...

    I finally got to test out the Trinity for a couple of games last night and this is a hard hitter ! I never thought there's another racquet that is as stiff as the TC700 but here it is ! However, the Trinity is easier to use and swing faster compare to the TC700.

    My Trinity is strung with Zymax 67 @ 26lbs and this is an excellent string ! I am a fan of BG66 and NBG98 and only use them almost exclusively on all my racquets but I will definitely use the ZM67 when it is available here in Singapore.

    Indeed, the Trinity is a hard hitting racket and very solid. The only issue is the rather low warranted stringing tension of 28 lbs max. The Great Panda will have to ask for a warranted 35 lbs woven frame (very hard material at the bottom please).

    Okay, did we get GrandMaster TwoBeer's appetite going?
