I have a Yonex rdx 500 18 /20
guys guys... did anyone pay attention at the strinjob in my frame???? that one there is the original that came with the frame. i bought two of them from Eric Westerberg (pim-pim's brother in law and pr manager)
I took it out for a 10 minute hit today after my session was done .. its very solid and responsive . Loads of control and nice plow. Spin is massive too. .
What about it?
Can you take pic of it for analysis.
I thought it was a 2 piece string job, but what have you noticed about it?
I wish I could afford buying one of those only to see how it plays and to measure its specs.
It was a monster from the baseline and very good in my returns i felt. Volleys were deep and had good placement and mass.Serves felt flowing and had pace and spin and felt like the racket whipped thru well at imapct to generate results that were felt by my hitting partner compared to my regular TGK 238.1.
Hello, I'm Anastasios, a wine distributor from Greece and I'll be playing with Marat Safins' racquet this weekend - a MicroGel Prestige Mid.
Does anyone have any info on this frame?
Hey A, one could claims some rackets are like wine. Like the PC600 in PT10 paint.
Potent, jovial yet discreet and controlled.
Is it a PT you are hitting with?
What's the RDC rating for the racket if you measured it and what is his grip size??
Didn't notice anything different on his string job, did you??
well. the PIM-PIM rdx 500 posted is suposed to be a 18x20... right?
mine is not!!!
yet both have the JJ's personal specs on weight and balance. and the pim-pim sig!!!
I dont have the proper equipment to carry out the stiffness tests sorry. The grip feels a bit on the rounder side compared to my Head rackets and it is a grip 4 1/2.
Hi, can you tell us the weight and the balance point?
Sure , it weighs 367 grams. How do i determine the balance point? I.e i understand that i find the point at which it is even balance but how do i do the calculation to get a points headlight/headheavy outcome?
Measure the distance from the balance point to the end of the buttcap, in Centimeters (cm).
No sorry to dissapoint....
It was a sarcastic remark in reference to the OP, who I believe, wanted to say that he was going for a hit with a retail RdiS 100mid and mistakenly wrote 'Hewitt's racquet'... maybe ignorant to the world of PJ's....
Ok,alrightie.. i find it to be 30.5 cm from the butt cap to the point that is the even balance area of the frame unstrung. Want to add it weighs 354 grams unstrung.
My previous weight measuremant was of the racket strung with 16 gauge string which i took out . Just wanted to clarify that.
That's very usefull,
Ok, no problems.
Just want to add that Hewitt's racquet is 26.75" in length, not the standard 27".
I wonder why he would have a shorter racquet.
^^^ On-court testing with Bosworth... that's what worked best for him
Don’t know for sure but I bet most if not all the pro’s do this…
Was that due to hoop compression or design? Where did the info come from?
^^^No, that is UNstrung.
Warren and Jay used to be my bosses
Interesting. Thanks for the info.
