    Yonex R-10: check out the braiding (PICS)

    I didn't know it was braided...How much of the layup was Boron? Was it meant to rival the Prince Boron at the time? The headscuffs on my R-10 reveals some elegant braided construction:

    Clay, behind the baseline
    I'm not sure, but I think this is interwoven graphite. It looks exactly like the top of my SRD95, and it has title "interwoven HM graphite" (HM is probably "high modulus").

    Is this R-10 suitable for singled-handed backhand?
    I want to buy one. But I am afraid it won't fit for my backhand.
