I'm really not liking these new RDiS's..

viktorkwan 01-10-2009 04:06 AM

As expected, it was 28 inches long...

However, it wasn't that heavy...

In fact, my Liquidmetal Radical Tour with 20g of leadtape feels heavier...

Wow thanks,great pics.
Looks like he really switched,not a paintjob,as i've never seen that throat before,am i right?
Do you other specs?

color is okay, but the new PJ design doesn't look too nice.

viktorkwan 01-10-2009 04:18 AM

yeah the throat looks different...that's why I took the pic...

unfortunately I don't have any other specs....sorry guys...

Ok thanks, how did you get the racket?

Thanks for the pics! I would love a pic of the racquet in full, just to appreciate the 28".

BTW, look at the grommets located in the throat area: they are short instead of the longer ones like the ones in the RDS 001 model. Nalbandian never used the longer grommets. I wonder why.

Maybe for more feel? Like the Prince 03 Tour you have the normal rubber throat grommet piece (long) and the hard throat piece without the rubber (short). Davydenko used the short throat piece on his 03 Tour.

I wonder what the stiffness is of Nalbandian's racquet?

So this means it's really his second Yonex after the RDX500? What did he use prior to that? POG longbody? and before that?

Chauvalito 01-10-2009 08:08 AM

Thanks for the pictures. the throat design is definitely different.

It says carbon nano tube on the stick, also the frame is much more box shaped than the previous RDS line.

28 inches! man i like yones rackets but i don't think that RDis line is for me. But i guess i'll know for sure if i can see some specs, anyone got any?

samster 01-14-2009 04:51 PM

I too am not liking the new Yonex paint job.

thefan 01-14-2009 05:26 PM

How thick is the beam?
