    Sort is half-complete, and all those who wanted 285-area rackets are covered (the specs have been extraordinarily consistent).

    Right, that's that flu shifted.

    I'll contact each buyer with their incoming specs over the weekend (and hit you all for money, sadly), then stringing and packing will begin on Monday as payments come in.

    I'm taking my own red TPro to court tomorrow, so I will report on it after my session. I have (good) suspicions about it already.

    What specs exactly is your TPro?

    If Mark had his way, probably with a 250 BP

    Actually, I've gone back into what you might call "normal" range. I find I can control a 285-290 just as well as my old 270s these days, so I might as well have some free power. It's like being back with the dear old NS9900...

    Default I'm throwing the TPros to the open market

    This TPro shipment has such consistent specs that it's kind of backfired on me, and I've been unable to nail a few of the more extreme specs, so I'm offering some TPros to the open market.

    Most of them are 285/86.x (i.e. NS9900 weight and balance), so anybody in UK or EU who wants one can contact me via PM or email and get one immediately.

    Regards,

    M.

    That's nigh on my ideal specs but I'm waiting on the Aussie shipment this time round, here's hoping...

    These new rackets look great!

    I would honestly love to try one of these new rackets, however the amount of people who would not take me seriously using a racket that said "Panda Power" on the side would be a lot. Seriously, where I play the fact I use a Victor racket manages to bring out a chuckle from the majority who think that Yonex is the be all and end all of badminton, I would get less laughs from people if I used a Arc 9, than I do with the Victor rackets.

    Nevertheless, I think Dan does an absolutely incredible job, and deserves all the credit he gets for creating these rackets in pretty much his spare time. I'm sure a lot of hours go into making sure its just right for the players needs. Also distributors such as Mark need to take credit as well for being able to provide speedy delivery for EU customers, so well done to them

    Off topic: PS, mark, do you still have any of that SOTX .63m string? If so And willing to sell PM me?

    Anyway

    Seriously, what kind of idiots do you play with?^^ Even though I consider Germany (and my area specifically) to be kind of ignorant concerning Badminton, I've never once gotten any reaction at all for using sth. else than Yonex. Although Panda Power did draw a few chuckles for the name

    that's really funny
    unknowingly Victor is a good brand?

    no one actually complaining or even look at my racket when I'm playing
    that's with Indonesian community
    they use assortment of racket, from high end Yonex to cheap low end Carlton
    yet they play brilliantly
    but I refuse to let them borrow my racket, because they don't know how much Panda Power or my MX80 worth is..

    No offence, but the problem might not lie with the brand name if you are not taken seriously in the court... I play in SG and most of my friends who tried my PP rackets (Precision and T2) would love to get their hands on one if not for the price...

    But all agree on one point - they are still more bang for buck than Yonex rackets...

    Default TPros for the proletariat :)

    My pre-orders have now been filled, so I can offer the following TPros on the open market:

    296/87.8
    291/87.7
    292/87.0
    291/87.1

    Note that the racket balance can be moved upward at a rate of 5 mm per gram (a 290/86 can be adjusted to be 295/85, for example), but the handle shrink wrap will have to come off.

    PM or emails from interesteds are welcome.

    M.

    P.S. Adam, your rackets can now be sorted out.

    Yeah, we'll unfortunately that's what I have to deal with, most of them were curious at first as to what Victor was. Anyway most of them are fairly ignorant and actually the majority of them think that SP coding on YY rackets means they're fake! Lol theyre stupid

    Most think my MX80 is a cheap rip off Vt80 that isn't worth anything, none of them really follow badminton to much extent.

    I see what you're getting at but no, I'm pretty sure it's the brand that they would laugh at, seeing as I'm probably slightly ahead of them in terms of playing (but not fitness/stamina)

    I'm sure if they knew more about the brand, then it wouldn't be as much of a problem.

    I agree with you. I prefer old color: yellow with "brushed" head on racket. It really look special. This new red is nothing special and looks like first Tpro from Panda

    Do you have the latest TPro in hand? If not, decide after​ you receive it.
