    There is mention of these racquets swelling at the tip. Can you describe the tapering at tip, head, throat and handle on the RDX 300 MP and SM? Thanks!

    Also, do they have Ultimum in them?

    Shane Reynolds, the "memory titanium", I am assuming, is the same material as the Ultimum TI according to Yonex's description in their websitewww.yonex.com

    The answer is yes, but inside the bottom part of the shaft where it meets the grip.

    The upper hoop has a wider beam width which becomes thinner (tapers) towards the throat and handle. I would say the racquet starts to taper at about 4 and 8 at the bottom of the hoop.
    The composition features: High Modulus Graphite and Nickel Titanium Composite. Yonex's Hybrid IPS METAL is located at 3 and 9. Yonex claims this material is heavier than lead. The Flex Torsion Control shaft features a new titanium compound for reduced torque.
