Yonex RQ-180
 
Any thoughts by former users of this racquet? I played with this racquet many years ago and I swear it's the sweetest one I've ever played with.

Seles's racquet, right?

^ No, Seles had used RQ-380. This was Martina Navratilova and Pat Cash (grey paint job) racquet. The first Yonex widebody.

TOO wide, if you ask me. Actually, a nice playing stick, should have been about 2/3 the cross-section. I've got a new RQ 880, never been strung. I'm tempted to give it a whirl. The 420 was the over sized look-alike. I taught with that for a while before the Cyborgs.

I love the rq 180 ,It plays flexible and yet very powerful.seems way more flexible than a r-22.

I strung the mint RQ-880 I got off the 'Bay last year with a poly/syn gut hybrid. SUH-MACKS the ball.

Compared to my RQIS 1 Tour XLs:

Similar weight.
More power.
A little unstable.

But super fun to play with. And really sexy-looking.
