    The Yonex EZone Xi video is being shot middle of next week, so the review should be out about a week to two weeks past then.

    Hi Brittany,

    Which version of the 97 is it? The 330g or 310g?

    Thanks

    No, it is not being re-released. We had a message boarder request it and it was perfect timing as Chris was hitting with it for a variety of reasons. So, we decided to squeeze it in the playtest lineup.

    the yonex xi ezone 98 is very popular as well. may we request for this stick to be reviewed in the next lot of reviews?

    also, will Jason be part of the review for the ezone xi? I think he is the master of the tweeners!

    also, on the POG, will u being a review on the mid plus or the OS version? the OS version is the best racquet during its time.

    thx for the reviews and keep up with the great job!

    I will put the Yonex EZone Xi 98 on the list but can't guarantee a playtest on it. But, I will do my very best! In addition, the Yonex EZone Xi is being reviewed by Siobhan and your favorite playtester, me! :wink:

    I may have made a man or two cry when I hit that backhand down the line shot against them. It doesn't hurt that it is my favorite shot to hit! :)

    Well, I have earned the nickname "Beast" here at TW. I am going to take that nickname as a compliment.

    Excited for Chris's review of the POG. Should be great.

    Do you think you guys could ever do a Diablo Mid review? Great classic stick, I'm sure it'd be a fun playtest.

    Totally perplexed as to what this means, really ...

    And, TW is located on the central coast of cali, almost directly between LA and San Francisco, not really SoCal. I've had the pleasure of visiting TW. It's basically heaven.

    He should have said SloCal?

    Strangely enough, SLO is the northernmost part of SoCal.

    When will this review be ready ? I already have my very, very, very positive opinion, but would like to know what your testers thought of the Qtour.

    Gecko,

    Unfortunately, we are not going to revisit the Prince Tour Diablo and do a video as we already playtested and have written available for both the Mid and Midplus.

    Sorry!
