    Oh my god, it's a new model. TripleB and others, take note, another Yonex model is coming out !!!

    It looks similar to the RDTi70, but with different graphics, and different stringing pattern. Maybe Yonex used the specs of the 70 to create this new monster. Holy cow.

    Taking a closer look at it, it's obvious Yonex used the design from the RDTi70. The graphics are *very similar* except this version has white stripes and black in the lower handle and upper hoop. The stringing pattern still looks a bit dense, I can't tell if it's 18x20 or 16x19. The beam looks thin, around 18mm.

    As I said, we better get in as much time as we can with our RDX500s.

    looks like the new paint for the urq-ti 80 , think yonex is going to push and promote this racket it has been dorment for the past 2 years without any real promotion.

    if you wander over to the pro section of the board, there is all kinds of speculation going on about this frame for those interested.

    I got a closer look at Paradorn's racket, and it looks like a paint job. The head size looks like it is 98sq.in., possibly the Ti80.

    Ti 80 looks much less dende. Maybe RDX 500 HD?? Hard to judge...

    As he is know for using an RD ti-80, I suspect it plays similarly, and that it is significantly different than the rdx's.
