    Dan is there any difference in stiffness?

    And how is with weight, for me right now feels that new tpro plays heavier.

    Update: one of the remaining TPros has been bought, the following remain:

    285/86.7 (found in the bottom of the box!)
    291/87.1
    292/87.0
    296/87.8

    TPros are now strung with WISE goodness:).

    Rackets are £89 + 6 postage via Special Delivery. I can string them in anything you like, at any tension (within warranty) you like, with free labour (string price only).

    Other than Wolffie and PeteLSD, any other BCers potentially interested in this racket?

    A current top international player asked Panda to produce a racket for him...errrrrr...or her. ;)

    This individual likes ultra stiff rackets with a fast head...

    ...so the Trinity with an Ultra 1 shaft stiffness (actually a bit stiffer) immediately came to mind.

    Anyway, here are the proposed specs:

    Racket: Trinity XTREME Limited Edition
    Weight: 86-90g
    BP: 295-305mm
    Material: Toray M40J (shaft and frame)
    Stiffness: 6.8-7.0
    Finish: non-reflective black matte

    So sort of like a 9900?
    Is it a slim shaft / aero head?

    Hmm...slightly head heavy and stiff racket. Kinda like the Victor MX80? What's the price point?

    Same price as the other Trinities. And yes, more like the X80 though stiffer.
