    Hi guys,

    Being from Europe, I will add mine.

    Had: 2 TPro 285/84 g that met their end due to bad stringing
    Has: 1 Precision 291/85 g
    1 TP 285/84 g
    1 T2 285/85 g
    Hopes for: 2 TPK 290/84 g that might come with the new batch ordered by Master Panda.

    I might have pictures somewhere and with try to dig them.

    Cheers,
    Flixor

    Hello guys,

    I'm based up North in Newcastle and first came across Panda Power through my relentless search for alternatives to the big names (Yonex, Victor, etc).... the thirst was quenched after I bought the green PP Precision from someone here in the forum (can't remember the name!) and have never looked back...

    Has:
    1. PP Precision
    2. PP prototype (bought from Mark A, I think he called it "Stealth?")
    3. PP Revelation (broke this last week)

    Was in talk with @DuckFeet on getting a replacement before he broke his too... :P

    Welcome both.
    She is not wanting to change the Rev, and uses my UPK when she breaks a string during play, then I have to revert back to one of my Forza!!!!
    So I think now I have the TPK's, she will commandeer the UPK as part of her kit....

    I've gone from knowing virtually nothing about Pandas to having a mini collection. It was all DuckFeet's fault

    Have:
    Rev Prototype, can't remember specs but I love it.
    2x Rev 295/87 - just received this week
    TPK 304/86 about to land on my doorstep if Hermes get their arse in gear

    Depending on how it goes with the TPK I'll have at least one Rev for sale, once I've restrung them and had a proper test!

    Not that one that I've reserved... 87/295 is my golden spec I'm sure.

    Ha, too soon to say! I did expect it based on the BP but its faster than expected. I'm not sure I like the flex though. We'll see if I still use mine when I've got two revs in my bag.

    Are you after one or just making conversation?

    had a T2v2 and then several TPros. mostly around the 286/86 mark. One was a lot more head heavy 284/300 or something.

    think I have 2x TPro left. One has been converted in to an exercise racket. The other is available.

    284/300? You got a PP tennis racket?

    I have a small selection left, 2 T2v2 which aren't worth enough to sell, really, one TPro with a small crack at the frame, and 2 Revelations. I might be of a mind to trade those away for Kevars or Kevlars They're around 86/285 iirc, but the mails have been lost. I taped them up a bit to make them reasonably head heavy, but the lead tape is easily removed.

    yeah, it had some lead tape on the handle to make the specs look sane. when you take the lead tape off...

    1st casualty. 305 BP and this flex are not suited for BS users! Or I'm just terrible at adjusting. Either way I'm going to put mine up for sale once I rule out a few potential interested parties. Going back to rev / brave swords.

    Either that or I bang a known good (soft) string setup and give it another go. I framed so many shots I don't think it matters.

    Similar experience to mine really. Would like to try an 84/296 TPK but 304bp is just a tad too slow for me.
