    Hi all,

    I used to own a Yonex RDis 100 Midplus before but sold it due its stiffness.
    I heard Yonex RDis 200 Midplus was supposed to be more flexible and powerful.
    Yet, someone said the sweetspot was unusually small for a racket of that size.

    Can someone confirm this?
    Also about your general feeling toward this racket.

    I hit one handed backhand, semi western FH but no windshield wiper.

    I would like to have some plow-through, esp for my BH slice
    and FH.

    They don't sell this model in Canada so I can't demo it.

    Thanks very much,

    If anyone has used the heavier version 200MP, RDiS 100MP and the RDiS 100 Mid, could they kindly compare and contrast them.

    Thanks zapvor

    Did you notice that the sweetspot was smaller than expected?
    Obviously it depends on what kind of racket you were used to playing before. 90 sq vs. 100 sq

    well i dont manage to hit the sweetspot enough to judge, haha. i have always used midplus sticks so this was no different. its not terribly easy to swing around but somehow it manages to help my game...i cant say why

    i just broke the strings but i had rpm M and syn gut X and it was a awful set up. so my review may be not as accurate if i had a better set up

    Sweetspot was about what I expected - but I moved from a 95 in (RQiS 1 Tour) to that 98 in headsize.

    I moved away from the RDiS 200, though. It's a thick frame and I've found the Ti80 Lite to be a more suitable racquet for me. It's more maneuverable and offers a decent amount of power from a player's stick.

    If anybody is complaining about the sweet spot of this racket, they better get a 120sq in.

    Sweet spot is big enough, a bit higher than normal, but bigger than most 98 size.

    Very good racket in my opinion in all areas and beautiful paint.

    They sell the RDiS 200 in Toronto - excellent racquet, more maoeuvrable than the RDiS 100 (for me). The racquet is flexier and more powerful than the RDiS 100. It is an excellent racquet for an all court player and for doubles. I find the sweetspot average but large enough for me. I use Natural gut mains and poly crosses at 55/51. Hope this helps.
