Hey guys, I was just out around town and found a yonex rd-7 for a real cheap price. I did a search and couldn't find any specs on this racket so I thought I would post and ask for them such as swingweight, strung weight, etc... I know this racket is considered a classic but how does it play? Especially volleys and how it applies to an all-court game. Thanks for your help!

Here you go dude, straight off the TW racquet finder:

Head size: 95 sq. in. / 613 sq. cm. Balance: 5pts Head Light
Length: 27 inches / 69 cm Swingweight: 342
Weight: 12.3oz / 349g Stiffness: 54 (0-100)
Power Level: Low-Medium Construction: 21-22 mm
Swing Speed: Fast String Pattern: 16 Mains / 19 Crosses
Composition: 100% Graphite

I've always wanted to try it out given the praise it gets as a spin machine on these boards, but haven't gotten the chance myself. Get back on how it plays.

I think it is the most solid playing stick for an all-court game....does not feel quite 5pts. head light- maybe 2/3 pts....massive spin/control but will plow through a ball with good mechanics...hits solid volleys but maybe need some extra preparation if you are more used to a more head light stick....not any weaknesses in my opinion if you want a players stick.
