    Yes, a few people. TheShadowZ, Coach D, Guavawang and a few others. But remember, most people are just now getting their TPro and it takes a few days or even weeks to get used to a racket and then post. And many don't post.

    is it the reason why until now Revelation not produced is because Revelation cannot exceed Tpro even though with better material?

    No, the history of the Revelation is like this: the frame is and always has been perfect, but for over a year and after trying 10+ different shafts, could not get the shaft to match the frame. So giving up on this unless the manufacturer comes out with more shafts.

    Tried a new company and everything seems to be OK. OK until Panda thought of doing the raw finished frames on the Ultra Pro and Trinity Pro. Now the feel of the raw finished rackets have closed the gap on what used to be the superior woven racket. How much? More testing needs to be done.

    After the testing is completed: if the Revelation can be at least 25% better in overall feel, then Panda will produce it. If not, there's no point in producing the Revelation because there's really not much improvement...

    ...unless the community just wants a bloody woven racket. :p

    The community wants a bloody woven racket. With a clear coat frame so we can see the weave of the woven fibers, and a silver-themed shaft.

    Haha just kidding. I'd rather wait, and have it be released and useful, than have you release a substandard product.

    So day 2 of playing with the TPro.

    Yup, just as good as the first day :)
    Switched between Ti10 and TPro and there is just something about the TPro that gives it that much more umph and control as well as comfort.
    Both string with Zm62 at 26lbs and both with one yonex grap on them.

    I got 2 inquiries already on where to get the racquet!

    Panda is humbled. Panda just set out to try come close to the legendary Ti10 or at best try and match it.

    Don't be, Dink. You've earned every bit of thanks and salutations from all of us. Ten times over! :)

    Yonex had all the resources at its command when they designed the Ti10, and a legendary product it is. You used all the technology at your disposal and knowledge at your command, and made a series of products that challenge companies that are 1000 times bigger than you. I salute you.

    If BC is a virtual nation (sans borders) you are our National Treasure! :):D

    let's count how many people actually want the Woven Panda Power ....
    (you should have your commitment to make a pre-order or down-payment to the nearest distributor, and not just say you want it but in the end never buy it ... :D ..... it may need 100 pieces to start the production).


    1 - 5 : Malaysia & Indonesia Panda Power fans.
    6. .... pls continue ...
