    Not many racquets with these specs.... and I like what I see
    98 and 27.5 WOW
    A tad light but that could be fixed rather easily.
    Anyone hit with this one yet..??

    Haven't hit with it. But when I ordered the vcore Xi 98 I came very close to ordering the team instead. I agree specs look good. In hindsight I wish i would have tried it.

    Great price too!!

    I have an Xi Team Plus for doubles, great racquet for it, too much topspin actually, my Twist serves are sick with that racquet.

    There is never to much spin... just ask the newly converts to the Steam 99s.
    I am going demoing next weekend, Hope they have this one avialable for demo..

    You'll see it if you play singles, the pattern is very open, the balls kick very high, and this was the team plus, I can only wonder what the regular does.

    But that much of topspin and kick produce a heavy ball, but on flat shots is not very accurate, but super maneuverable at the net and great for kick serves, I also use the stiffer yonex string , poly tour hs to give me a little more control and firmness.

    anyone else tried this racket, nobody has a review on it anywhere it seems and no feedback . Looks interesting to try at least

    Looks like a descendant of the RQ 7 that I liked.

    Hate to bump this thread but I just ordered one of these on a whim. I've been looking for a successor to my beloved Volkl Tour 8 and haven't been able to find one. I have been hitting this summer with a PD+ but just don't like the thickness of the beam.

    This Yonex is very similar spec-wise to my Tour 8s so I'm hoping for the best. There aren't many thinner-beamed extended racquets out there. I'll try and post a review after I've hit with it.

    Anyone else playing this stick or have feedback?

    Blade is way too flexible, at leadt for me, and the NYC has a weird feeling throat. Just didn't like it.

    Hit with the Yonex and it is similar to my old Tour 8. Need to hit with it more and test out some different string set ups.
