    My first midsize racquet, something I will cherish forever. Absolute delight to hit with, just couldn't find any that were bigger than 4 1/4!!

    try it with bde rally natural gut if you get a chance, amazing spin on backhand slices and very good on counterpunching rallies. Downside is it does not have as much feel as a ps 6.0

    well, the srd tour 90 will feel like wood so you should be ok. wait a minute, you're too young to remember wood.

    Yeah too young to remember wood. The main reasons i bid (and won) the srd was because
    1) Hewitt plays with it under his pj (apparently)
    2) Liam always goes on about it.

    So i wanted to have a hit with one and collect one

    understandable. now if you want a really flexy stick to hit with try the rossignol f200 that wilander played with.

    IT ARRIVED AWESOME. its in a brilliant condition and no WAY its a heavy as everyone says, as soon as the nalbandian Bagdhatis match finishes (not saying score or anything) im gonna go get some shopping then hit he crap outta the wall. I have a lesson today but im not going to use it for that. also the ead doesnt look that small but you never know f i really can hit with this 90 my next racquet might be a 90 odd square inch head. If you dont mind can i post a wee review later.

    Yours Sincerely
    Jonathan Forrest

    im a pretty hard hitting baseliner occasionally i venture to the net. i hit everything really full on. FH is (attempt at Roddick the max ive had it speed gunned at is 78 mph) i can literally hit anything with it angles, anything. Oh one thing i cant do is hit a FH dropshot and slice (exceot flat shots and my bh is again roddicky i do hit winners but generally i just try to get it deep with power (angles are a HELL NO on my bh hit it about 68 recorded max on my bh but i can hit lices and dropshots off it) My serve is imo pretty hard got it recorded today at 91 mph but i need to use the speed gun when ive warmed up properly (but my average first serve is about 89 mph). if you can think of anything else ill tell you about my stroke on it

    When Yonex produced the RD Tour 90, they weighted it by grip size. I played with a 4 1/2 and trust me, it was heavy. I had four of them at one point and now wish I had hung on to them. It was a great frame.

    Yeah so far it seems quite good mine is 4 1/4 with the original yonex leather grip (it seems like leather) right now the strings are useless but i have a set of Polystar energy lying around so i might get that strung up soon. (i still need to get my Tour Trysis 300 mp strung up again (snapped a string a few weeks ago) but back on topic so far im under the impression that serve just seemed normal but on the fh especially i noticed that (everyone else said it and now i KNOW IT) that if you dont swing all your weight into the shot (which i do like 70% of the time anyway) it barely goes past the service line. I barely hit any volleys most of the volleys that i hit were touch volleys which seemed ok good at best
