    That dot is to denote where to place the 12oclock support on the stringing machine. At least, thats what I use it for.

    I figured that was a combination of dust and a reflection. Is the reflection a mistake?

    That looks like a reflection of the window.

    That's the centre marking of the frame, probably to help guide in centering the racket for drilling the holes.

    It's very subtle (and sorry, that picture doesn't show it very well at all).
    One of the U-shaped grommets is the wrong kind - (long instead of short) and also put in the wrong way around.
    I could see something was just slightly off, but it took me ages to work out exactly what it was.

    DAMN sketchy has an eagle eye. Gotta be when you design rackets, right?

    Anyways, the PP Thunder reminds me of the old days. Wasn't one of the first prototype names "Thunder"? The new design reminds me of a less blinding RSL X3 Gold. And 300-305? Thats really head heavy, right? Why the sudden decision to make a super head heavy racquet?

    Boo! That doesn't count, hard to discern from the angle of the photo. Also, you said "deliberate mistake". I don't think that was deliberate from the factory. At least I hope not. ...

    No, you have to look at the BP relative to the weight. 300-305 is head heavy but not really head heavy. Really head heavy is 312-315.

    How's the Thunder going to fit in the PP lineup?
    Those specs look like it's going to be a head heavier, power frame version of the T2. I'd guess it gives up a bit of defence and mobility for more attacking as compared to the T2...

    Yep, exactly. Some people just love offense with a splash of defense. Offense that's easily achieved I should say. With the U1 and U2, it's not easy to achieve but very rewarding if you can.

    Dang it! In addition to the Woven, now this would be another racket that I'll have to try out!

    I'd been thinking that my T2's could afford to be more head heavier to bp295 as it is very mobile already. When's ETA expected? After the Woven?
