    Remember to not cut all the way around the head... Made that mistake first. Leave like 3 areas un-cut so it will hold the inner portion in place and you can cut eyes out. I come back with the ink and fill in the gaps after it's done.
    To put this on my racquet I converted it to vector (.svg) format, hope you don't mind. If people want this they are welcome to have it!

    To all of my Panda customers:

    My internet is playing up at the moment, and I won't be able to respond to any emails or PMs for a while, so I'll update you as best I can.

    The rackets were sent from USA on Mon 7th March, so I am expecting them the third or fourth week of March. Any UK buyers can get my on my mobile, whose number should be in my Profile page.

    Hope to be back soon,

    M.

    Hmm... I appear to be back on line after some tinkering.

    Let's see how long it lasts, eh...

    Btw, Virgin routes its calls to India - just so you all know.

    you used virgin broadband? Iuse virgin too
    sometimes the wi-fi cannot be detected by my computer
    to solve the problem turn off the router, and turn it on after 5-10 minutes, usually it works

    Last time I played with my UPro, one of the 8 lower grommets top broke off. The top that stick out of the frame. Down through the frame and on the outer side, the grommet is fine.
    Is this going to be a problem? Never tried it before.

    Review of Ultra Pro (As requested By our wonderful Panda)

    A little intro of myself ..... I would think that my size is quite similar to the likes of our great panda .... 1.8m tall and 120 kg (Am i correct to say that panda ) ....

    My game play has always been power and net shots but i love pushes too ....

    First impression of the Ultra pro ..... No paint work and it is all black nothing fancy about it <--- that is what i like ....... The first swing at home hmmmm Excellent .....

    String : zymax 67 at 28 lbs ( first time using the string as the sg supplier don't have any BG85 left ) and clothe grips

    Tried the racket at night duringa 4 hours session but was dead at 2 hrs reasons begin u will know it later .....

    During warm up the racket gives a lot of feedback to my hands and i love it as that is a lot of information to me ...

    During the Games ....

    Attacking - My smashes were scary even for me as it was the first time i realise how powerful and consisten my smashes really are ..... I felt that it is the way this racket is make that made me produce such powerful smashes and for the first time i think it is both the racket and people that make the diff and not just the Skill level of an indiviual .... this smashing game of mine lasted 1 1/2 hrs as it was just too addictive and at the end of the 2 hrs i was dead meat , my whole arm was trembling and i wasn't really able to lift my arms .....

    From this point onwards i think everything has change as i was sweating so much the my whole grip , socks and shorts was soak with my sweat .... This usually happen to me but then i used to have 3 racket to hop around with but now i only have 1 stringed Ultra Pro .....the Bp of the racket change and i was extremly tired after 1 1/2 hours of smashing .... so my game play turn to defending , pushes and net play ...... I am not able to really give you guys my experience with the racket on this 3 point as i think the fatigue on my arms play a big role here ..... but from what i can see those will be not problem as this racket really gives me lots of feedback and feel ......

    Play on the following day evening but it was just a game of healthy life style as my arms including my whole body was really SORE ....

    So for now i am going to string my 2nd Ultra Pro and thinking of getting a 3rd one ....

    You guys can ask me question if you want but it is just from my Point of view ..... And i think alot of factor gives different result and that is why i give you my physical measurment too ....

    Well it's a miracle you kept on going for 2 hours. 120kg is a lot of mass you have to move over the court.. I'm the same hight and half the mass and am struggling to play at my best for more then 2 hours non stop..

    It's all a question of how much you train and how you move I started Badminton with 1h training and 2h free matches twice a week, and now I train about 5-9,5 and play 5-9,5 (14-15hrs a week in total). When you train with high intensity for 1,5hrs at least twice a week, 2hrs of matches will be no problem after a while. Although I only weigh 80kg@1,89m and tend to move a bit sluggishly >.>

    Yeah I agree, I play about 5-8 hours a week, including two high intensity trainings, but with 120kg it's a different story, even if you don't move as LCW or LD

    And a Panda Power is awesome, but doesn't give you super powers, does it?!

    I'm 120kg and 176cm
    I can move around but not too fast, I prefer double though..
    single, 1 1/2 hours is the limit, for double, it could be more than 3 hours

    I really want to lose around 20kgs though..

    Okay, I've never been much heavier than this (except for a few weeks where I was at 87 - 2-3kg of it muscle, though), so I dont know how hard it is to play with that weight...I guess a little extra training wouldn't hurt though, perhaps a bit stamina training? I need to do more myself, especially weight training (my legs aren't powerful enough, resulting in knee pain at times and regular jumps of less than 40cm - I need more hangtime for my jump smash!). I hope some extra muscle will also help with the endurance, as I tend to get hypoglycaemic. Stamina is okay, but could be better^^

    PP is awesome, I agree. My TPro is amongst my top 3 doubles rackets, being the fastest&lightest. I need a speed gun to compare the smash speeds though

    Yeah, we get a little distracted at times >.> Thanks for letting us know how it performed for you, though!
    Rats. With this many positive reviews, I'm getting very tempted to buy an UPro myself despite my earlier doubts about whether or not I can bend an ultra-stiff shaft :/ Can't really afford that, though.

    Yeah you're right! Back to the racket! What sort of racket did you play before the UPro? And what were the specs of the UPro?! I'm thinking of buying one myself or waiting till Panda made an ultimate Revelation

    Nice job on the site btw! More news items are welcome, so we can track the development of new and coming rackets!

    Default A week early and no customs? WTF?!

    Well, a rather large box has arrived from America, so the TPro exodus will begin on Monday; as luck would(n't) have it, I'm working tomorrow and Friday, so bang goes my weekend...

    All those who've pre-paid will have their rackets away first. In the meantime, I'll string mine up and take it to court this afternoon, see if I can get enough drill in to sustain a proper review.

    Many thanks (again) to all buyers! Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some stringing to do...

    M.

    P.S. For all you unbelievers: proof of my insane spec
