    It appears that a lot of the people who uses yonexes have two hand backhands. Is it because the isometric head shape make the onehand backhand difficult to hit? Only person i can think of is Srchipan(spelling?)

    ive tried the mp1 tour, rdx500 mid and mp the rds001 mid and mp and the rqis tour 1 and i feel comfortable hitting a onehnad with them

    its weird but when iswing with my rqis the grip is long which is obviously meant for 2handers but i still hit the 1hbh with it

    I have a 1hb and use the RDiS 100 mp. Not probs at all. The handle portion of the racket is a little longer, but it's still 27inches like any other normal racquet. Doesn't make any difference in terms of ability to hit a one hander.

    I always feel more at ease hitting slice backhands with a Yonex (it just seems to knife through the ball more than most racquets). However, I can hit over the top of the ball when I want to.

    Pat Cash, John McEnroe (briefly), Todd Woodbridge, Andrew Kratzmann and Andres Gomez all used Yonex and all had single-handed backhands.

    RDX 500 Mid is possibly the best 1HBH racquet ever made.

    I use the RDS 002 Tour and have no problem hitting my one handed backhand... but then again I do have an absolutely legendary backhand and can hit winners with a 2x4 off that wing.
