View Full Version : Question about RQis beam width?

10-24-2007, 10:29 AM
So, I've been trying to figure this out and maybe I missed something. TW gives 3 different measurements for the beam width on the RQis Tour 1. Does that mean it goes from narrow at the throat, gets wider at the middle of the hoop and then gets narrower again at the top of the head? If that's the case, it seems kind of unusual. Can anybody clear this up for me?

That's exactly what it means and Yonex would not be the first to design/manufacturer a stick that way.

I think Pure Drive is the same.

No, the Pure Drive is 25mm all around the hoop. I used to have one. Anyway, I guess I won't be getting an RQis then. I can't stand when the hoop is wider in the middle than on the end. It looks too much like those newer Prince racquet designs.
