    The mini tour is in town this week. While I was talking to the stringer I noticed a different Yonex. It was marked the RQ-7 Tour. The stringer said the owner was from Japan. Couldn't get a look at the specs but the racquet felt heavy. Anyone know anything?

    Hingis is actually using the Nanospeed RQ-7 Power, which is, like it says, more powerful than the regular Nanospeed RQ-7 and the Nanospeed RQ-7 Tour. The Tour version is the only standard length of the three, and is heavier and thinner than the regular version. All three are 100 sq. in. and both the Power and Tour versions are only available in Japan.
