Thanks Dink! Do you also happen to know the price in CAD?
Anyone wants to acquire my PP2? I will give you good price for it. I just happen buy more than I needed. I post mine in Sale forum and on eBay. Message me if interest.
Should be the equivalent of $125.00 USD.
Selling a few older rackets, if anyone was interested. Figured this would be the right place to alert those interested. No clashes whatsoever, all personally strung by me. All prices shipped CONUS, more for others.
If anyone from Philippines is interested, I can bring them over in July, I'll be there til December.
2x Ultra Pro (first gen) - $85. Used for a total of 30min each of warmups. Too much racket for me One is 82.9/296, the other was modified by Dan to 86/287 by changing base grip to King replacement grip.
2x Trinity Pro (first gen) - $75. These saw more love. 85.1/300 and 86.1/287. Plastic on original grip, only ever used overgrips over plastic.
1x Precision (first gen) serial 0970-2010 - $70. No cracks/chips on cone, light decal flaking at 3 oclock. Grip replaced with Karakal PU. This ended up as the backup to my backup Precision, maybe 2hr total use.
1x Trinity (gen 2.2). Most favorite out of the bunch. 86.1/287. Original grip replaced with RKEP Power Master replacement grip. $75 to the right buyer.

Hey Dink, what do you recommend for something similar to the rsl ti4900 (flexible, medium balanced, very light) but more stiff?
Dink Panda has more time now and is focusing more on badminton rackets.
1) Quite a few inquiries for Ultra Pro Kevlars but in a lighter weight, higher BP.
Range: 82-85, BP295-305
Dink is going to do more testing to see if the UPK can be optimized a bit more.
If not, will stay the same.
2) Dink is testing a variant of the VTZF2 frame. The VTZF2 frame is small. This variant is about 10% larger in size but the same shape. If "excellent", will produce. Testing in both a 6.5mm slim shaft and normal shaft.
The last time Dink and his minions tested the 6.5mm shaft, we had 3 prototypes and 2 of the shafts snapped at the base. So hopefully these are waaay more durable.
3) Power Pander TITAN. Dink is old school, loves the AT700, getting some AT700 frames with a tried and true 40T standard shaft (the one on the Precision Pro (Black color) ) will try stiffness 7.0-7.5 and 7.5-8.0.
If "excellent", will produce this as well.
The prototypes should be here in two weeks so stay tuned, thanks!
The trend now (has been for some time) is light to very light weight rackets 4U and 5U and going head heavy, BP305-320 to try and create a hammer effect for power yet, light overall weight for defense.
Not sure what's currently similar to the 4900, which Dink knows very well back in the day, had about 10 of them.
Long time not played it but time to get new rackets and play again
I am really off this form for some time...including Panda new models. Can someone give me short summary what is currently hot by Panda?
Wow Dink, you've managed to describe what theoretically seems like the perfect racket for me. Been looking for a light racket that gives me more power, but not as heavy as VTZF2. Not as stiff either. Looking forward to seeing the prototypes!
That sounds amazing. AT700 <3
Has dink tried sanding the paint off thebhead of a TPK yet? I've tried a few more racquets since and nothing can compare to the feel of kevlar, and I'm thinking this shaft is perfect flex for me.
Me want proto!!!
Same for me!!
My revelation broke today, may i ask what racket plays the same with it?
I'm sure by now everyone know how good is Panda Power racquets
I know it a bit late to comment on this this product, but yet here is some facts that I feel after using Precision Pro V2
It was little strange n I keep missing d spot, but in a short time, I slowly get it
It was easy to push it to base n not much effort needed.
Very nice n accurate, make slice easy
Half smash very effective, as it can caught opponents off guard
Very nice n easy, it almost like my old Revelation.
Of course this is most important of the game. Very accurate n precise, but power wise not as powerful ( maybe I'm weak lol)
Easy to clear than other racquets I used.
Even when at very difficult position
Very satisfied with this racquet. I would rate it 9/10. One of d best racquet I ever used.
There seem to have been a few Revelations die at the same position without major trauma if this thread is anything to go by. Mine is still going strong but I hope it doesn't go the same way. Has Dink said anything about it?
Also, any update on the prototypes mentioned on the previous page?
Relatively speaking, based on the Revelations sold, the number of problem rackets has been minimal.
The reason the Revelation is no longer available is because the cost has increased and the up and coming Precision Pro v3 should be comparable, if not better performing with similar swing and balance characteristics while maintaining a reasonable price.
The new prototypes, especially code name TITAN and the VTZF2-like frame, are eagerly anticipated. Dink hopes to have them by this week
I wouldn't say problem racquet, but I've found the rev weaker than expected. Rated to 30+lb I thought it would be a tank like the meteors I've had. I've had 4 revs and only 1 is still going. All died from clashes but I've not lost any other racquets in clashes.
Similar story here, although mine died from a mishit smash...
Opposite story here, mine killed another racket in a harsh clash with not even a scratch or dent to be found on my racket...
