All of my Yonexes (Almost...)
 
I really like Yonex. (And Rossignol, and Head, and Völkl, and Donnay, and Fischer etc...) Here's a picture of almost all of the Yonexes I've got at the moment. I know there's an SRD tour 95 missing, and probably an RD10 Power long.

I've several of your collection that came with a bunch of older rackets. I think I have about 15 yonex rackets dating from the 80's up until 2005.

Any of these the oval-headed ones instead of the usual rectangular head?

OPS-32


RX-28


RX-37

How do you like them? Any favorites of the bunch? There's a monolitic solidness to some of those old Yonexes.

Frankly, I played with a modern white/grey with gold model but I totally mishit the balls with it.
Could be the isometric headshape or the crappy stringjob.
I will take one out once more to try. Which model has this "monolitic solidness" about it? Maybe it's amongst the bunch.

I always thought these rackets were cool, being the exceptions.

Dino

Do you have a favourite?

Gonzalito17 01-06-2013 06:32 AM

Very nice collection of weapons. Selling any of those RD7s?

Two really stand out: the Super RD Tour and the RD-7.

Yeah, I really like the aforementioned frames; SRD Tour and RD-7. Beautiful racquets and very nice to play with. Both are on my top-10, including all brands. :)

Thanks. :) No, sorry.

galain 01-06-2013 10:09 PM

Thanks Dino

I haven't ever hit with the SRD. The RD7 - I can understand why it's at the top of your list - really gorgeous stick.

I know there is a RD-7 amongst the lot.
I'll restring it and let the club pro play with it first next Thursday.
We play every thursday night and I always bring a few classics for him to fool around with. He was very pleased with an R-70 and RD 10 Long. He asked me to bring some more Yonex rackets to try out, the RD-7 will be next.

So how did it go? Any love for the RD-7? Any other finds in the lot?

Started tennis playing with an RD-3. Still have it.

Turned out to be an RD-5...the Pro loved it though.
Strung it up with Discho Black Mamba Penta for the mains and Polystar Energy on the crosses.

Have you tried the red RD-Ti mid or midplus?

The 70? Nope, but I've always wanted one. I fear it plays too stiff for my liking, but it's a beautiful racquet.

Looks like you're missing a Super RQ 300? Check out the "for sale" forum... wink, wink!
