    Would anyone happen to know the accurate strung weight of the Yonex Ultimum RD Ti-80 racquet in a 4 5/8" grip?

    Any opinions/comments on this racquet?

    1. A bit over 12 oz. Not lighter than your pog.

    2. Not as good as your pog.

    Ben,

    My ti-80 tips the scale at 12.5 oz, but I also have added a Volkl leather grip to it. I love this stick. It has absolutely no weaknesses. When the ball is struck it does make what some critics refer to as a pinging sound...doesn;t matter it hits SOLIDLY. May not sound solid, but it plays great and hits solid balls. I don;t play POG, so I can;t compare, but this stick is a great weapon. I have posted multiple times about my experience on the old board if you want to go and have a look. No need to repeat other than to say that I have hit with a lot of sticks and this one is my choice.

    I agree with Mr. Seinfield about the Ti-80. I have found no weaknesses in this racquet. I switched from the Wilson HPS 6.1 and have never thought twice about it. My returns are more solid, groundstrokes more accurate and my serve speed is up. For me it's the total package.
