She. Is. AWESOME!

Sinner 11-05-2011 02:24 AM

Thanks for posting the ginormous, detailed pics.

If you Youtube her bagcheck video, she also mentioned that her racquet was very heavy and weighed 380+ grams.

I wonder what the balance is. Lol, I can't imagine playing with a sledgehammer...

Yonex technicians make their rackets to spec in the factory for their pro players.

It's no ordinary leather grip, it's a YONEX leather grip

Anyone know where to pick one up?

It the swingweight was 385 it would be impressive but weight doesn't say that much.

Don't think they sell them to retail customers.

Lambsscroll 01-16-2013 08:53 AM

And she is still using that SFit racquet which Yonex is no longer making in production.
