Can anyone give me any information on these frames? I know some yamahas are good frames, but I have never seen these ones before...

I used to play the Secret 05-RS in high school and it was pretty bad ***. A little stiffer than what I've settled on since then but I have a soft spot for Yamaha racquets.

I want to say Sabatini did play that frame but I could be wrong.

She did endorse these frames. They also came in a white version. The "super Light" version was the EOS< efficiency of swing >.

Am I imagining this or are you always posting photos of racquets you are trying to sell?

Just a guess:)

Good decision! I have an EX-110 with the white/purple/green pj, the same as Sabatini's:) These are great frames. They have a really unique feel that only the Yamaha Proto series has. The performance is also excellent, as good as or better than any modern OS IMHO.

I live in Japan so it's pretty easy to pick up classic Japanese frames. Yamaha's are excellent - I also have 2 EX-110G's (Boxier beam, muted feel, lower-powered) and an FX-105 (Slightly lighter and easier to swing).

Let us know how you like 'em!

the mizuno graphics on the side beam were identical to Yamaha's as well. Does any one know what I'm talkin bout here??? Mizuno made a clone of these Yamahas. Both were pro racquets but it seems the Mizunos have disapeared. Would love to find a mizuno yamaha clone. They were chunky and white mids, with almost identical graphics to the secret ex...anyone???
