is it possible to change the Paintjob of the yonex RDS 001 into something less yellow? possibly a custom home job? If so how do you do it? And would this change the weight and balance.

Yes.

Sure, why not.

I don't know.

Yes.

Japan Tennis,

Are you really playing well with the RDS001 already?

If so, think of it as a so-so looking lady who's willing to serve you with whatever you need, whenever you want. Such "faithful" lady is hard to come by so it's best to live with her and appreciate her other fine qualities than just her looks.

Yeah, just spray it with black. It goes with anything :) or get an RDX 500 instead.

i doubt it....spray paint wont have a huge diff. in the specs....

but deal wiht the color
it's the perfermance the racquet has.. not the color you know
i agree with anirut

i hate my racquet's paint job to...idc..i love how it plays

When I saw the pics here I thought I wouldn't care for the color, but in person it isn't so bad. I'm getting accustomed to it, though I prefer red racquets.

Regardless of the color, the Yonex RDS001 mid is an awesome racquet. I'd say it's the racquet of the year.

Put cool stickers all over it. Then when you sell it, you can take 'em off. Voila!

The sticky up top of this forum describes how to do it of course and has photos - it's not real easy or anything I suggest you read this

I don't recommend stickers as they would be heavy and get full of sand and everything

I'm not joking: this past week I was hitting with my RDS and this chick walks up and tells me that my racquet was really cool. Now we are dating!!! Yep I owe it all to the Yonex RDS 001 MidPlus!!! :D :D :D

The racquet color really grew on me, even as the racquet itself was not as wonderful as I'd hoped it would be (for me).

Yellow really gives it the trademark look. Know one really knew I had a RDX 500 but people can recognize the RDS 001 no problem.

Or is a disgusted look I'm getting????????

The PJ on the RDS 001 is disgusting, I agree

I don't think it's bad, although the pattern is a bit more complex than I'd like. I like simplicity.

People can be very superficial, it seems. Is it easier to paint a racquet and worry about how that affects its performance than just try to get past one's superficiallity? I started using the BB 10 recently with its "granny stick" cosmetics and, remarkably, not one person has come up to me thus far to make a gratuitous insulting remark. I'm coping.

prince would that change the balance?

I changed the color on mine, I just ook off all the yellow and sanded down to the carbon weave. It looks great.

To compensate for the weight change I added lead and it all good.

Since then I switched to 200g. If someone wants this rds001 let me know.

I think this is one of the best cosmetic designs that Yonex produced lately !!!
