    for YONEX USERS: in search of a back up racquet

    Hi guys,

    i m looking for a back up racquet.
    i am using Yonex RD-7.
    thinking about getting the RD Power 6 long (27.5)

    any suggestions or comments about the RD Power 6 long?
    how are its specs compared to the RD-7?
    is it head light?


    thanks,
    :p

    If you get a backup racket, i suggest getting the same one. If you pop your strings or something, you have a fairly identical one to fall on. Plus its not the best idea for your game to mess around with different rackets. Its best to stick to one at a time.

    i understand what u are saying.
    but i am sure u know how hard it is to get a RD-7. i am lucky to have found 2.

    i m interested in teh RD Power 6 long because its 1/2 inch longer.
    can help me with my serve.
    i played with the Rd Ti-70 Long for 2 years before.

    I've never heard of it. But I know alot of people have them for sale on TW. The RD-7 that is.

    It sounds like no matter what you will get your hands on the RD Power 6. So my only advice is ****!!

    Hey fellow RD-7 user.

    Too bad Yonex does not make the RD-7 any longer, but I found the TT Warrior to be a good alternative, considering the cheap price. I leaded it up following gmlasam's "customizing tt warrior thread" and it plays great!! The TT Warrior is a longbody, 27.5.

    Have you tried doing a search on tenniswarehouse racquet finder? I understand you can enter the specs and do a comparative search. If you don't find something, it might be an idea to rent the movie 'Star Trek, In Search of Spock" Albeit something being found. Good luck
