T2 is now my go-to racquet. But it has a higher BP than any other racquets I have ever used, so I need to practice my wrist strength but since I love net play, I noticed that it's easier to do net play techniques than before because of the speed, lightness and higher tension.
And I use the same Karakal PU grip too, it felt so good and tacky too.

lol.. to that woman in badminton shop
you should say to her about dc badminton
I will order the Tpro once I finished explore my AS008T (I only use it for 3 hours in past 2 months! )
and once I can decide the bp and weight that I want (still can't decide it!)

My personal experience - and that's all it is - is that at the target specs, the Precision hits harder.
I have several T2s (v1 & v2) all around 85g/285-290mm. I also have Precisions, ranging from 83g/280mm up to 88g/290mm. All are strung the same - ZM62 @24lbs.
The mid-weight Precision hits hardest of all, and with the least effort. The heavier (off-spec) one feels much slower, and actually doesn't hit as hard because the shaft is too flexible relative to the weight of the racket head (the heavier the racket, the stiffer the shaft needs to be).
Basically, if you pick a weight/balance that's a long way off the designed spec, even if it's closer to your usual preferred specs, you can't automatically expect it to play better.

Exactly right sketchy. Do you have any Precisions you might like to sell? anything around 85g / BP 290?

I also find the T2 has more power because when you really go for the smash, the shaft rewards you with the extra stiffness. Precision not so much, too slack for me but it is a faster racket, but once the Tpro comes out the precision and Trinity 2 are just gonna go into my retired bag. Note: I only have T2's in 82g BP285 and 2 precisions 82g BP285, 84g BP292.
Probably won't get a review out for the Upro for a while, been busy with school and other things so didn't get a real good play outta them. But my bro is liking them so far at his highschool sessions, and soon team practice.

It's pretty easy to explain why I prefer heavier rackets than most ppl here - I'm probably amongst the tallest, and having a bigger body weight than many, those rackets dont feel that heavy to me. I love to smash a lot in doubles, and even though it's not a total killer smash yet, it's pretty good & improving. Head-heavy rackets help with that.
I also have a distinct disadvantage compared to most users concerning technique - although I train much, I'm still pretty new to the sport and find myself lacking when it comes to the effortless, but very quick 'whipping' motions required to fully utilize a stiff, light racket.
So - although it may seem strange to some of you, heavy 3Us with BPs of 290+ are what works best for me

Did you mention, that your style of playing is more on Speed and net play?
then you should really try the precision...

Gonna go to OCBC in a few and test some Ultra Pros with X2114 (aka ZM67 prototype). VTec101, you ready for us to come over?
