Since you've been playing with both,, are you trying to give a review or looking for others opinions on your racquets?? :confused:

Not sure why you are confused. Just read the first line.
"Has anyone else compared these two and which did u prefer and why?"

I am looking for anyone else who has tried these 2 racquets and want to know what they thought. Simple.

I havent tried the yonex but the rdis 98 model was very solid. The Speed had that balloon head feeling that is a little wierd but produces huge topspin and great kick serves.

I was confused because you sounded unsure about the racquets *You have been hitting with*, and were looking for others opinions to help you make a decision of some sort rather than sharing your own? :confused: hope I was wrong ?? :confused:

I'd give you my opinion on the IG Speed, but I just don't think you are suitable to Head.

:P

So what is He suitable to??

No Yonex, no HEAD, very soon he will not have any rackets to play with, LOL.

Lol.

I am actually still playing very well with the Speed and will probably stay with it. It let's me play "safer" with more loopy topspin. The Vcore kind of forces you to hit more flat, which can lead to more errors

Safer is a good thing I think in singles. A lot of recreational tennis is played with not enough margins for error and very short rallies. I am not advocating pushing, that waiting for the error style of play, rather you are just not in the game until rallies are your meat and potatoes and everything after that is for the showreel. If the Speed is keeping you in then that has to be a primary consideration. The racq is forcing your game in a direction and that has been reducing UEs. Frankly I find the unique hoop shape of the Speed line a nice halfway house between offering a wide sweetspot for groundstrokes and a responsive upper hoop with which to find touch.
