Alright, here goes my mini review! I won't be doing a point system.
Racket History: TI10 3rd gen, AT900T, Trinity 1, and NS9KS
Racket Specs: Swing weight 86.3g. I think it was default BP but I don't really remember. Zymax70 @ 25lbs strung by Sir Dink. Original grip removed and replaced with one Karakal Supernano 60 overgrip.
Initial Impressions: Racket looks great and feels really solid in hand. It felt light and slightly head heavy. Swinging it around, it sounds/feels like it cuts through the air faster than the T1 and similar to the AT900T. It feels head heavier than my NS9KS. The T2 is noticeably flexier in the shaft than the T1 by bending it.
Playing: The T2 felt really solid. It took a bit longer to adjust to it from the T1 than I thought it would, which I think may be due to the fact that it does cut through the air faster. After the strings set in a bit, clears were effortless and smashes were powerful. I would say one great improvement over the T1 is the amount of control.
Power: Power noticeably greater than T1. Likely due to flexier shaft. However, it doesn't feel as good to smash when choking the handle higher up than all the way at the bottom. I wouldn't say the power is greatly decremented when doing so, but the feeling of doing a smash at the back like while holding the handle at the bottom is phenomenal. I also think that technique greatly influences the amount of power you can unleash from this beast. Doing a proper smash at the back line will definitely general power. Drives also have a lot of power and accuracy behind them.
Control: This racket is simply amazing with the amount of control. The feedback from it is great and I feel that my lifts/clears are going exactly where I want them. I still need some time to adjust my drops/slices to the strings and racket, but net play has been going well. I would say the control provided by the T2 is better than the AT900T.
Defense: Another shining aspect of this racket. It seems to be amazing at turning a defensive shot into an offensive one. The flexier shaft allows for more accurate and deeper returns.
Drives: I expected constant driving to be more difficult because the shaft is the most flexible I've played with so far, but suprisingly I found no difficulty in doing so.
Overall: Great racket, definitely my go-to racket now. I feel that the T2 is as good, if not better than the Ti-10.
Additional Notes: when I first took it out my friend though it was a special version of the NS9.9K . great work on the paintjob Dink!

My 3 arrived today, will string today and try Wed night. Think I will try Ashaway MP 22x24, 24x26, and 26x28. Nice looking rackets, will give a quick review after testing.
