    i noticed on the RQ iS Tour 1 that it looked as if it had a longer handle but was still 27 inches long. it felt really good with my two handed strokes. so are there any other racquets made like this.

    I think the Tour 90 has a unnecessarily long handle.

    Oh and the Prince Longbody.

    well i'm talking about racquets that don't call themselves longbody or XL and are standard length but have longer handles. but now that i look at my TOur 90 it does have quite a longer handle.

    I used to have an RDS 003 which I thought had a very long handle, probably all yonex are like that.

    A lot of the newer Princes seem to have longer handles : Shark, O3 Tour, O3 White, Hybrid Tour, etc. as well as their Speedport successors.

    IMO all the Yonex racquets i have tried have a longer grip. RDS 001 MP and MID, RQiS Tour 1.

    RDS002 Tour has the same grip length as the RQiS-1. These 2 racquets have the same grip length as the RQS-11, which is an extended length racquet. I wonder if all recent Yonex racquets have the same grip length, regardless of total racquet length?

    If I'm not mistaken, the Slazenger X-1 had a long grip. I think the Fischer M-Pro does to.

    The Tecnifibre T-Fights have relatively long grips, if I recall correctly from demo's.

    All of the Yonex racquets I've used have long handles - RDX500MP, RDS001, 001MP, MP-Tour 1. I believe the same goes for all other 27" Yonex frames.

    All Yonexes, T-Fights are relatively long, from memory some of the Prince's struck me as long but they could have been longbody
