    Update on the Revelation:

    Received 12 "final-final" (10 now, two were sold) prototype Revelations on Monday. Testing today, tomorrow and especially on Friday and Saturday...

    ...after 2+ years of trial and error, this Panda thinks he's finally got it right this time. At least as right as can be.

    So the final stats:

    Panda Power Revelation
    Stiffness: 7.8-8.2
    Frame: 100% woven graphite
    Shaft: 100% woven graphite
    Tension: up to 34lbs.

    Retail Price: $180.00 USD for the racket only
    Internet Price: $160.00 USD for the racket only
    Promotional Price in the US: $160.00 shipped and strung with Ashaway ZyMax.

    Question to All: if you were to buy, what would be the desired weight and BP?

    Panda needs to know so he knows what specs to order.

    ^^ Great news! So is the frame design similar to P Pro or something else? How's the shaft stiffness compared to P Pro? Is this meant for singles or doubles?

    No comment on singles or doubles. That's your personal preference mostly on the weight and BP.

    It's the Precision Pro frame shape but with 100% woven graphite frame and shaft. It's more solid, more powerful and has a bigger sweetspot than the Precision. Also is stronger.

    The shaft will be made a bit less stiff, Panda has found it's easier to generate more power.

    P Pro was rated with a shaft stiffness of 7.5 - 8.0. Someone already answered that question that you asked a few months ago Pay attention in class!

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...80#post1910480

    Which means it'd be similar if slightly softer in flex than the PPro. (rated at 7.5 to 8.0) 8.2 plays dead in the middle between a S and a XS on the SOTX scale.

    Awesome! The P Pro frame design along with the exposed grommets is an excellent one! Order me up 2x 87-88g bp 295mm!!

    Panda's Personal Racket: 84g, BP305 with ZM62@31lbs. (removed original grip and replaced with one layer or RKEP Ultimate overgrip) Originally: ~87g, ~BP295

    85g, BP285 w/ZM62 @25lbs.
    87g, BP290 w/ZM62 @30lbs.

    And stuff inbetween just not strung yet.
