    I was wondering if anyone knew the specs of the Yamaha Secret 04. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I played with one for awhile back when they first came out. As I recall it was on the stiff side. The one thing I remember was being able to serve major bombs with that thing. It had a lot of power, could create wicked spin, but just not as much feel as I prefer. I'm sure someone on these boards could dig up the specs for you.

    According to an old Thomas Martinez post, the stiffness rating was 80! No wonder you can hit bomb serves with it.

    Weight 353 grams, SW 327 grams, RDC 79, balance 31.5. Not sure about the beam width. Still play dubs with a guy who will not switch as nothing current compares to it.

    AH yes, the Secret 04. Yamaha's effort in 'copying' the Wilson Profile. As previously said, as stiff as hell. It also had a new, sort of, Teflon coating.

    I used the O6. It had more feel & control although still very stiff. We've just had a couple of guys join my club with Secret EX's. They've even got 1 which has never hit a ball and still has its original polybag!
