The 'strange' one - RX32. Probably the best frame I've ever had on court.

Yonex Ultimum ti 1700...best ever. RDX 500 is pretty good too!

I played with the Yonex RD7 for years and loved it. Stopped making them so I had to find a replacement. Now I play with the MP Tour-1+ and really love it. I like the heft and stiffness combo. Problem is they stopped making them also. So...... I bought a lot of MP frames and squirreled them away.

TS :cool:

galain, RX32 has a traditional head shape? R-22 but noticed how weak it is in the upper hoop last summer.

You are all so old school. :)

The NSRQ-7 is a wonderful frame that highlights all that is good in modern racquet technology. And I don't even play Yonex frames..... yet.

yes - the RX32 is a traditional head shape. I still have no idea why, if Yonex can actually do something that good in a traditional mould, they never did it again. I am familiar with the R22 as well. Really nice racquet. Always felt a bit less substantial than the RX32 to me. I've seen quite a number of these snap in half straight across the midpoint of the head.

RD-7... There's a reason it's considered a classic...

RDX 500 ofcourse.

havn't had the fortune to try more than a handful, but my current fav is the rdx500 (mp). i note i hav a mid in the mail and hope i will favour it more... (or it'll be a waste of money)

i also used the rd-7 for many years... great racquet but not head-light enough for my liking. love the flex tho

although i have the ti 80 which is good i like rdx 500 mid better

The Rdx 300 (supermid) looks good.
Has anyone ever played with this frame ?

Ones I like/liked: (similar to TripleB)

MP Tour 1 (kind of heavy but solid)
RDX 500 MP (brother has one, I have one)
RQ-7 nanospeed (my current, arm is still getting use to it)
RD-7 long (some greyish matte one) regret selling it
RD-Ti 80 (could give it another chance in the future)

One to stay away from:

MP-5i HS

And hoping I'll like my forthcoming RDS 003 best of all!

Anything pre-RD7. That racquet & current models suck compared to the 80s Yonnies. I guess RD-7 would be good if you've never played w/older models.

Has anybody tried the V-Con?

I would love to demo it.

Sorry this is straying a little bit, but is the MP Tour 5 pretty sweet? My bro just demoed one and I've read a couple places that it needs a little lead tape in the upper hoop, so what's it all about?

milo

i think if you like the rd ti 80 you will not like the rdx100. it is quite different. and rdx100 only available in asia.

anyone up for the rds001?Totally! Even in stock form, the 001 90 is perhaps the 2nd best frame I've tried behind the PS 6.0 85. I took off the useless stock grip, put on a real one and now the racquet is way head light, so much so, that I'm having a hard time playing with it. Even still, it's greatness. Can't wait to lead it up!

P.S. The RD-7 is up there too, ahead of the PC600.

that's great...im gonna string mine tonight and have it hit tomorrow night. if i end up hating the replacement grip, i will add a leather grip and counter balance it at the head at 3 and 9....

CANT WAIT

btw, adely, how's my avatar now? :)

btw, adely, how's my avatar now? :) im thinking of changing my avatar to a vibration stopper dampenerThe replacement grip is ok for a while. But when it begins to wear out it feels horrible! Also makes the grip size feel smaller than its actual size.

Your avatar is cool! Someone on my MSN has that exact same one as their pic. I'd be interested to see the dampener one though...

i took off the plastic on my rds001 90...it already feels like crap. it doesnt have the amazing tackiness that you would find on other synthetic grips.

im gonna see what i can do w/ the dampener though.

Hi Ronaldo

I'd like to know too. If it moves like the RX32 I have a hard time imagining it isn't also a beautiful frame. I've hit with the R27 and I liked it a lot - felt a lot more substantial than the 22. But like I said before, the RX32 is really the best frame I've ever used. If the 37 is anything like that it would have to be good.
