    TW Staff,

    The stated weight for the Yonex RDX-500 Mid+ is 11.7 ounces.

    In the past I know that the weight of the Yonex racquets have increased as the grip size increased. Does this still hold true?

    If so, what grip size does the 11.7 ounces refer to and what would the weight of the 4 5/8" grip racquet be?

    Thanks for your help.

    All 4 3/8 and larger should spec out close to our posted weight. Grip size 4 1/4 will be slightly lighter.

    PS: Have you ever compared the MP-1 Tour Mid+ with the RDX-500 Midplus? I used to have the MP-1 Tour Mid+ and found it a little cumbersome and little too much power once you got the racquet in motion....just wondering how the RDX500 MP compares. Thanks.

    I would say the power level of the two is similar. However, I found it easier to generate racquet head speed with the RDX 500, thus getting more spin and action on the ball. The feel of the RDX racquets is also quite a bit softer and there is more of a sense of flex, rather than the crisp feel of the MP Tour-1.

    If you are looking for more control, you should definitely give the RDX 500 HD a try. The tighter string pattern offers a lot of control and feel.

    Make sure you get out there and do plenty of demoing as that is the only way to know which racquet is right for you.

    Good luck,
    Chris, TW.
