40lbs. is already useable. I tried it for about 15 minutes. The clears sounded like smashes and the smashes sounded like thunder as people from other courts would look over because the sound was so different. But, there's absolutely no power. When you smash, the shuttle shoots like a bullet for the first 10-15 feet and then it's like a parachute opens up and the shuttle looses all its velocity.
Again, 40lbs. string tension is only good for novelty purposes. I do not condone using it.
Panda has said this before and will say it again: try to use the lowest tension you can tolerate that won't adversely affect your game. There are many benefits to this:
1) Less stress on the string
2) Less stress on the racket
3) Less stress on a person's arm
4) Better form. If you string too high and cannot wield it, you will have bad form; you will have a loopy, jerky inconsistent swing trying to muscle the shuttle out.

In about 40 days, I hope to have the revised 2nd generation Ultra in stock. Since the original Ultra and Trinity were made, I learned a lot of little minor things and have incorporated what is pertinent.
1) revised graphics, eliminated decals on most of the frame which soften the outer frame, that's mostly why over time, the grommets sink in and the string eats into the graphite.
2) stronger thinner clearcoat, minimizing paint chips. Couple the thinner clearcoat and the elimination of decals, the frame will be a bit thinner, a bit more aerodynamic.
3) Dropped BP 5mm to 285
4) Reduced stiffness from 7.0 -7.3 to 7.5 - 7.8
5) Racket weight available: 82-88g
These changes, though seemlingly small, will make the Ultra much more user friendly and more durable. It will minimize sinking grommets and paint chips.
The generation two Ultra should be useable and appeal to many more people.

My friend is considering either a ZELM Powerplay 9990 or Panda's Ultra (both are head heavy and stiff)
I am getting a few ZELM Powerplay's because they suit my attacking needs , and when I do I will lend it to my friend to test.
But he asked , if would still be aloud to buy first Gen Ultra , because it has a higher B.P than the new one.
Would that be possible?

Though the Zelm is stiff, it cannot be compared to the Ultra. The Ultra is way stiffer and much more demanding. Of course this is comparing same weight and BP rackets.
There are no more first generation Ultras, I'm all sold out. I only have a few demos or used ones, that's about it.

But hey, if a person has the money and wants to purchase something or likes something and wants it regardless why, it's his/her right. I'm not going to stop 'em.

1) Any Li Ning rackets

3) Any country code Yonex racket made in the last two years
4) Any new Carlton Rackets
5) Any new Babolat Rackets
6) Heck, any new rackets that are popular or want to be reviewed.

Okay, I finally started playing again and playedwith the Ultra and I'm impressed. I was a little worries at first as it felt light when I got it, but as soon as I stripped off the grip tape and went to a single wrap of prince overgrip that I do withh all the raquets, it felt much more head heavy.
It's only a hint stiffer than the Forza Sp-9000 that I play with so there is minimal flex which I need with my power. One things I noticed is that the joint on my SPs are thicker than the Ultra.
My swing is still stiff from taking the summer off, but I can already tell the Ultra will give great nasty smash power and based on the few net tricks I tried, is very responsive at the net. feedback on shots was decent... Going to keep playing with it with the intention of putting into active duty.. I may have to get another one as a back up.
if anyone doesn't like their ultra, I'll take it!!!
