I love Yonex rackets. Been with them for over 10 yrs and there's no equal as far as quality and playability. I mean I can purchase 2 rackets from different places and both would weight, balance, stiffness and play like perfect twins. I'm still wielding the good ol' RDX 300s. But in my recent search for replacement, I've found the current line of Yonex cosmetically... bubble gum-ish. They're mostly white, yellow, orange, red, silver... etc. IMO, they're sorta passive in paint scheme and just doesn't look like a weapon that can kick butt. common sense says that we shouldn't just the book by its cover. But frankly I just can't imagine Darth Vader battling with a pink light saber. Seriously though, I don't think Tiger Woods would be caught dead with hitting a driver with cosmetic makeup the likes of any of Yonex rackets. I just wish they bring back the RDX (black and blue) scheme back into the RDS racket line.
