FUNNY, I spend more time cleaning Panda cloth bags from cat hair than getting the packages and labels done myself for shipping. Wish always they had a vinyl cover when going through the process.

Lose the cat, get a panda instead (or adopt one at the WWF )

Urameatball - if you order a racket from Mark A just make sure you have your inhaler and EpiPen close at hand before you open the package.

thank God I got the first shipment where there is no fur on the bag
got pretty small accident three days ago, both of my rackets clashed (my friend borrow my arcsaber 008 and I use the Tpro)
my arcsaber got one paint chip.
luckily, the Tpro is without paint job (only raw finish)
if Tpro has paint job I would be pretty sad if both got paint chips
well, I would not be afraid of clash if I use my Tpro (at least no paint chips, only scratches)

I would say I'd agree but someone hit through my UPro last night leaving some ugly marks... No paint doesn't mean you're safe

I played my tournament this last weekend and got 2nd place with the Precision. TPro had to be put down after a string breakage .
For the smash competition I had to go to the Ti-10 and load up the top end with about 4 inches of lead tape

does panda include lead tape in balance & weight specs for the labels?
Isn't this as bad as 'speccing up' with overgrips on?
Just bought a 296mm, but it plays more like a 306mm.

No, Panda does not alter the rackets in anyway. The rackets are received direct from the factory and measured. The plastic wrap on the racket is done by the factory so there's no way to alter the grip unless you remove the wrap.
As for your 296 feeling like 306, please measure the BP with only the original grip. If you have string on the racket already, measure the BP and subtract 6 and see what you get.

unfortunately original grip is removed (as well as the lead tape), replaced with white rkep g05. With strings (carlton .67), the bp is 314mm. I'm fairly sure the rkep grip is heavier than factory one (so should reduce bp if anything) so that leaves the 'real' bp at > 308mm.

You removed the lead tape, that's the reason why the BP is now off. The lead tape was put on the handle by the manufacturer to get to the desired BP and weight. There have been many discussions about this, many/most racket manufacturers add lead tape to achieve the desired specs. This is not out of the ordinary.
If you want to get it back to the original BP~296, Panda's suggestion is, after the string breaks or if you just want to cut it, remove the string:
1) unstrung, with your desired grip set-up, place lead tape on the handle, where the manufacturer originally placed it.
2) to get it right, do not stick it, just place it on top of the handle to achieve your ideal BP.
3) once your BP is achieved, now remove your grip and stick the lead tape on the handle; now put back your grip.
Now you have your desired BP.
