This doesnt mean the PPP wont be the racket for you, just not at those tension.

    Dan, any updates on the PPP aka Thunder? How is this run of prototypes compared to the last overspec runs?
    When at OCBC, I had a go with the Panda's new toys - the Thunder and the Pandamonium. (So did Halim Heryanto and the senior players at the club.)

    There's every reason to be pleased with the prototypes.
    The Pandamonium is not for me but I'll take the Thunder any day.
    Compared to my Nanospeed 9900, the Thunder is a great racquet.

    I wish the Panda had strung the racquets higher.
    The two test racquets were strung pretty low.

    The PPP was strung at 24lbs. for everyone to test.

    The Thunder was strung at 30lbs. That's too low? ...

    I'm not sure you tried the Thunder, I remember you tried both the 85g and 88g PPP.

    There's no point in taking a picture of an all black racket, prototype racket with no logos or graphics.

    Bollocks to that!

    So are you going to paint them white with black splotches?

    I like the name 'Pandamonium'. It's way WAY better than the APACS Tantrum!

    It had this little taped label on the shaft.
    And it said 'Thunder'

    I wasn't aware that it was strung at 30 lbs
    It felt much lower when alternated with my 900.

    Must be some confusion because when Halim tried the Thunder he said the string tension was a bit tight.

    I felt the string bed on your 900, it felt a bit looser than my Thunder, what string was that?

    My 900 was strung at 31 pounds with Yonex BG-66.

    I'm now totally confused.
    Which was the Pandamonium?
    Which was the Thunder?

    Maybe you got the labels wrong

    Nope, I didn't have the labels wrong.

    Regardless, I decided to go ahead and produce two rackets. Both rackets emphasize the following:

    1) Durability in both the frame and shaft.
    2) Stability and mobility with relatively very good to excellent power.


    I decided that I am not sure of the names yet but it's going to be using the "Thunder" frame and shaft just the way it is, add USGs and ultra-premium grommets. This will be an ultra-stiff, advanced player and/or wristy player with compact swing type racket.

    The second racket is for the masses, a much more forgiving, all-around racket. Basically a toned down version of the Yonex Ti10, more flexible and forgiving, less head heavy but with stronger frame.

    Stay tuned.

    Thanks Tiger, but I already have Sketchy doing some designs for me. However, I have not been able to locate him in the past few days.

    So Sketchy, if you are out there, please contact me, thanks!

    Got ESP?

    That's what I'm going to call the "Thunder", the Panda Power "BOOMSTICK".

    Next model to be released I'm lead to believe is the Panda Power ERL.

    ("Eats, Roots and Leaves")

    Pandas eat roots? I thought it was "Eats, shoots and leaves."
