Used to use them. Very headlight, huge spin production, very comfortable, powerful enough for a players racket. Good from the baseline and mid-court, and fine to volley with. I found that it wasn't a great racket to serve with, but I didn't really know about weighting rackets at the time I played with it.

This is an excellent all-court racket with *lead tape* in the hoop. It swings very fast and is comfortable

They're very head light, really low-powered, soft and flexible. With the open string pattern, spin is easy, but you really have to put a lot into it to get some pepper on your ball.

I use them right now. Although it is very headlight I find the head to be stable at the net with no lead added. I personnally serve very well with it. I would say it is not an exciting racquet, maybe because it has a bit of a mushy feel, but it does actually everything well.
Yonex Ultimum RD Ti-50 Standard Racquets
The Ultimum RD Ti-50 Standard isn't an identical match for the now discontinued SRD Tour 95 but stands alone as a worthy player's racquet. It combines a nice blend of control, comfort, maneuverability and spin. Power is low but adequate for players with fast swings. It will be best suited for 4.5-7.0 all-court players who prefer a traditional feel with slightly improved maneuverability. Despite having less power than the SRD Tour, both versions of the Ultimum RD Ti-50 (Standard and Long) offer enough power for players with full, fast swings.

What I like most about this racket is the traditional old school feel (PS6.0). In stock form, some may find it too headlight, but adding lead in the hoop (8-10 grams) solves any power or stability issues.
Too bad Yonex discontinued this racket, among others (RD-7, Ti70 long).
Thanks for all the feedback, sounds like a great racquet, i'll have to consider buying them!
