    OK, this has been driving me nuts and I can't find any info on it. Maybe one of you can help.

    Back in the early-mid 90's, there was an all black Yonex racquet that came out called a Terminator or Dominator or something like that. Does anyone know what I'm talking about or am I misremembering? I remember seeing ads for it in Tennis Magazine back in like 1992 I think.

    I think you posted in the wrong section. Try Classic Racquet Talk.

    :-? Really? You consider the 90's classic?

    Not a Yonex but a Kennex.....?
    ProKennex used to have Dominator models.
    Yonex went for R- something or RX- something model indications.
    I don't remember Yonex giving their rackets names like Dominator or Terminator, as soon as they went for composite frames they named them R-7 (Rexking) up to R-70 and the round headed models were RX- models.

    I'm thinking Yonex Cyborg line. They had two racquets the Cyborg 2200 and the Cyborg 2700.

    I think that's it. I remember it having some kind of design on it close to carbon fiber... your pics are close enough to what I remember.

    Anyone ever play with one of these?

    I played both for a while; the 2700 feeling a touch more maneuverable and crisper. The 2200s I had both felt clubby compared to the 2700s. As I recall, the carbon fiber 'weave cosmetic' was more pronounced on the 2700.
