I was wondering about this racket - http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageRCYONEX-RD80.html

Am I correct that it was produced in two different colour schemes but the specs stayed exactly the same? Was the paint finish/texture the same on both rackets?

Did the static weight vary according to grip size like some of the other yonex's? (The UL/SL thing)..

Also this might be a daft question but are the specs on the TW page taken when the racket is strung or unstrung?

Thanks

TW specs are strung. TW takes several racquet, specs them and takes their averages.

UL is lighter in weight 300 / 319g (L1,2)
SL weights between 320 / 339g (L3,4,5)

I used to use the TI-80. When the red version came out a couple years ago, I called the Yonex customer support number and asked them if the specs were changed. They told me the specs were the same and the changes were only cosmetic. I bought a red one. Maybe it was just my imagination or maybe it was manufacturing variance but I thought the red one was slightly more head heavy than my original TI-80. I didn't test the balance and like I said, maybe it was just my imagination.

Thanks for all the posts! From a purely cosmetic standpoint I think the blue and red version looks better though i've only seen the images on google etc.

I think I read for the ultimum the UL is for grips 1,2 and 3 and SL is for 4 and 5. Why do they do this crap? I might look elsewhere
