    Thanks anyhow. I guess, I'll just get half and half for the meantime (5 VT-Ziffs and 5 CAB 50s, all JPs, on its way) and decide later which one to go for more.;)

    NBG strings a bit tighter than BG65 which also loses tension faster. To get comparable feel, had to go up a pound on BG65.

    If this Panda had it his way, he would have strung both rackets up at 33lbs with gray NBG95. :D

    No, Panda tries to minimize all the variables to try and get the best information possible, within reason.

    It's not like I break them racquets left and right. In the long run it can be profitable if it turns out to be an AT 700 (original gem of a racquet) but of course if that is the case then I should stock up more, for sure!;)

    I got mine from http://www.bts-sportshop.com/ (germany). The seller is very friendly and offers real good support.
    I bought 2 rackets at this place before.. and now I get 10% discount on my orders.

    So.. I received the Z-Force for 143 euros, strung with string of my voice of course, including a grip of my choice for free (basically 140 euros then, if you substract the karakal pu super grip I choose).

    Well you are lucky then! The cost on their webpage for 'normal' people like us is 159 Euros!:rolleyes: I did check the price on BTS before but the problem is that they are not that well known here in the East so I wasn't sure of the quality and service. They have hammer prices for Babolat rackets though! I'll be buying a couple from them later!

    Why don't the Germans look East and get it from Eastern Europe, prices may be lower than in the West... arbitrage, arbitrage!

    Man!!! This is really frustrating. This thread is so long and I can't seem to find any review. I went through all the pages and searched for it. You usually expect it on the first page. Am I missing something? I tried google and also the Thread search tool. But so many post has the word "review" can't really get any meaningful result. Sorry for another useless post but I am really looking for a link? Anyway, after going throught 15 pages manually (what a pain) i found this.
    Also, where is Sir DinkAlot's review?

    Err...I just assumed that it would be relatively recent post and worked my way backwards (ie. pg 35, pg 34, etc) and saw the review.

    Panda; can this be compared with of the Panda Power product line??? If yes, which one and what are the plus or minuses.
    If not, do you plan to build up the new models against this one as a template???
    Thanks,
