    You guys have access to way more information on rackets and their histories than I do. I can't find anything about this racket or when it was made or what type of player it was made for. My girlfriend is beginning tennis and we found an RQ-300 for very cheap and I'd love to know a little background on it so I can see if it's suited for her. It's marked with "Midsize Plus RQ-300 Widebody."

    Thanks for any info you can provide.

    I remember this racquet from around 1997 to 1999. It was marketed as kind of like the little brother to the SRQ-500. Its retail price was lower, maybe $150. I don't remember it being 28 inches though, which would probably make for a hefty swingweight.
