    I am in the process of trading a racquet with a fiend of mine, and he has offered me a Tecnifibre T320 or a Yonex RDS003. Anyone that has played both your feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

    I'm sorry I didn't play with both, but I hit briefly with the Yonex RDS 003 and I didnt like this racquet, it just didnt feel solid at all. But that doesnt mean you wouldnt like it. Maybe you should tell a little bit about your game, previous racquets and preferences, that could help us guide you...

    I am an all court player, and love to rush the net. Currently playing with a Fischer Mag Tour 100.

    What is the string pattern of the TF320, it comes in 16x20 and 18x20. That might be an important factor if you like the open pattern of your fischer. Also, is it the normal version or the light version of the mag tour you're using ?
    If you're using the normal version and the TF320's string pattern is 16x20, I suggest you trade with the TF, it's weight is a little lower than your fischer but still closer than the yonex, plus I'm sure the TF is more stable than the 003.

    However you have to keep in mind that the choice of a racquet is mainly about feeling and personal preferences...I really suggest you to hit with both racquets, since you're dealing with a friend that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    Hope it helps

    sorry but i haven't played with either. however looking at the specs they are both good choices. from the specs, the T320 is more of a players racquet whereas the 003 is closer to a tweener.

    so if u like to smack the crap out of the ball...well u do the math...

    Tennis16, I'm curious to know if you got a chance to try both and which did you pick?

    I do have both. Settled down with the 003 last year so much that I actually bought three. Then this spring I decided to try a heavier racquet and picked the Tf320 16x20 because it would be about 12oz strung but still have a sw similar to my 003's.

    I've been using the 320 more and more. Smaller sweetspot, so I've been concentrating on watching the ball more. Serve is more consistent and speedy with the 320.

    Wish I had a access to a ball machine so I could do a true side by side comparison.

    I have the 003 and it is such a good racket but you say you like to rush to the net a lot, depending on how heavy your opponents hit the 003 lacks some stability straight off the shelf. But other than that it's still a good volleying racket.

    I have decided to go with the T320. The 003 is a great racquet, but it's just not as good at the net. I am the type of player who charges the net at every opportunity.

    Idk about the yonex, but i love my 335 which is the same but lighter, i have tried a good number of similar frames and it is the best.
