    how do these compare? Is the Yonex as spin friendly as the PD? How about the stifness?

    Bab is stiffer and quite a bit more powerful. Xi 98 has better feel and better control, and notably lower angle of deflection. No issues with spin with either if you know what you're doing. I own both and prefer Yonex by a wide margin.

    Like comparing apples and oranges. Yonex is a lot lower powered control orientated racquet whereas the Babolat is a power stick which lacks conrol (for me at any rate). Not as bad as the guy comparing the PDR with a Wilson 95 Prostaff though!
