Yonex RDiS 93--great racquet. I'm so happy I made the switch. Great pop for a player's stick, solid, and nicely balanced. I think the feel is really nice with a multi like NRG--maybe not as buttery as some sticks, but still very, very nice.

I truly think this is one of the best racquet Yonex has ever put out.

Anyone else agree?

I think it goes
1. rds 001
2. rdx 500
3. rds 001 2008
4. rdis 100

I tried so many different strings but i didnt like it

What didn't you like? I like the RDiS more than any racquet I've ever used. My favorite 3 racquets of all time are:

Yonex RDiS 93
Yonex RD-7
Babolat AeroPro Drive w/Cortex

They're all quite different from one another.

I really like the Yonex racquets, but I just can't focus w/ that head shape.. my eyes gravitate to it. No really. I'm serious. The head shape distracts me.

It didnt feel like any of the other ones. way too much power and the feel was awful for me. I liked the crispness of the rds and the rdx overall. just couldnt get used to my rdis

Yes, I very much agree that the RDiS Mid will become a notable addition to the Yonex lineup over time. I thought the RDiS a big step up for Yonex. Typically good on groundies, with excellent stability and control, the RDiS also has exceptional batspeed for a Yonex. The added spin and power make the RDiS a formidable all-court weapon. Neither as buttery smooth as the RQiS or as crisp as the RDS, the RDiS retains elements of both when feathering a drop volley or crushing a sitter. While I might consider the feel to be somewhat muted, that isn't necessarily a fair statement either, as it certainly richer --- IMO --- than say a Prince. Perhaps a "thwak" instead of a "thwok"? At any rate, a satisfying hit. A very good player's racquet, even comparing across brands. It will be interesting to see where Yonex goes from here.

I love the racquet . I have never felt so confident with any other before , it just does everything so well . This is actually my first yonex that I really like . What do you string yours with ? Topspin Cyberflash 16 @ 55 lb works well for me.

As expected you'll get people disagreeing on RDis.

I admit I had to tinker with mine before I finally got the right set up on the RDiS. I added and removed the lead; thought of going back to stock might help me with increasing my racquet speed. This experiment was good for a week but I noticed I was over hitting my shots. So I decided to add the lead back, all is good but this time the stock grip just did not feel right. I think it was too thin or something that bothered me. Last Monday, I decided to remove the stock grip on both of my RDIS and replaced with my favorite Head Hydrosorb grip.
Viola! it not only felt good but I was able to match both of the RDiS to weight exactly the same.
I purchased 2 RDiS from two different seller - first copy was used, second copy new from Canada. I am really impressed - I was able to match the 2 RdIS exactly the same weight. Both came in at 12.6oz.

Yonex quality rules!

YES! I think the RDiS is one of the best frame made by Yonex.

Great balance on every aspect of the game. Perfect for all court player like me. I noticed one big improvement that I was able to whip up my approach shot with some pace and spin. I am also impress on how deep and low are my slices - may be I just improving but I think its the frame. It is stiff but with the right tension and string setup - its a sweet racquet to play.

Definitely much powerful than RDS001 mid.

Racquet 1 - Pro Supex Premier Ace 17g 52lbs (M) / Pro Supex Spiral Flex 16g 54lbs (X)
Racquet 2 - Babolat Hurricane Tour 17g 52lbs (M) / Pro Supex Spiral Flax 16g 54lbs (black - X)

Well, mine came strung with Head PPS Synthetic Gut 16 at 60 pounds and I liked that when it softened up. Then I went to NRG 16 at 63 pounds and after breaking it in for a set or so, I'm happy with it. I might even go up to 65 pounds next time as my serves were flying a bit. Another thing I like about the racquet is the 15 pound tension range.

After reading your comments, I might have to give in and demo. I used to be a big Yonex guy, but the RDC of this stick has given me pause. I'm a big fan of the RDX 500's feel, and TW rates the RDiS as stiffer than the K90. I've cleared out all racquets except the Donnay Pro One, but I wouldn't mind a little more pop. (The Volkl PB 10 looks like another competitor, but on the other side of the stiffness scale.)
