In terms of being related to each other in playability, what racquet models do to think share a lot of qualities between different sizes?

For, example, I think that the Prostaff 6.0. 95 is a reasonable facsimile of the 6.0 85, but more user friendly. They share many characteristics and a 6.0 95player could progress to a 6.0 85 and find that much of what he/she likes is still there. Or, a 6.0 85 player could move to the 95 if he/she needed a less demanding frame, but still retain a lot of the positive attributes of the 6.0 85.

On the other end of the spectrum is the Diablo mid 93 and the midplus 100. Both thin-beamed, basic frames, but other than that, they really just share a name. I don't see a lot of continuity and I think they play completely different. If I ever moved away from the Diablo mid because it was too demanding, I wouldn't move to a Diablo midplus.

What do you think?

Yonex Mp Tour 1 Mid and Mid+ have identical feel to it although the Mid+ offers a bit more power due to the larger head size.

The Yonex Mp Tour 1 Mid+ is the splitting image of the new RDS002 Tour SL

i think many rackets are like that
the bigger head size makes so much of a difference
even if you string tighter

The Yonex RDX 500 Mid and RDX 500 MP are two completely different racquets. Yonex should have never given them the same name.

Totally agreed with Breakpoint!
