Yonex QC never ceases to amaze
 
Been playing with the RDX 500 Mid as of late. Decided to make the switch and pickup 2 more sticks. They were VERY tough to find, but I managed to find a pair on the Bay.

Sure enough, BOTH of my new sticks were weighted and (basically) matched to my original stick TO THE GRAM! OUT-RAGEOUS!

Gotta love Yonex.

You probably bought them from me. teehee. Hope you enjoy them! Yonex is top notch when it comes to QC.

Haha..$200 even for the pair with SPPP and Discho I?

zapvor 04-28-2013 04:02 PM

damn 200 for 2? i am glad i got a steal at $40

but yea the QC is insane. i have 7 rqis 1 tour xl, and 5 of them are within 3 grams. the other 2 i didnt bother weighing after seeing how spot on the others were:)

Yep that's me.

now kith! jk jk

Lilguy1456 04-28-2013 04:31 PM

I honestly overlooked the pricetag because I was so amped to find 2 at once. I had just about given up and was about to move to the VCore 97 310 actually. I like that stick too, but it doesn't like me (stiffness).

Lilguy1456 04-28-2013 05:00 PM

JKM...is the Discho on this stick by any chance 18 gauge? Seems SUPER thin!

jkm07 04-28-2013 08:13 PM

The Discho Iontec is 1.20 mm but stretches A LOT during stringing. I'm currently using SPPP 1.18 mm and the Iontec seems a lot thinner than that.

So, is Yonex QC always this good then?

Having switched over to Wilson frames last year, I've been pretty frustrated tbh by the QC issues that have arisen over a succession of rackets.

Yeah to be honest I'm not impressed with Wilson's quality AT ALL. My bag feels chinsy, one of my frames broke, paint comes off quickly, rackets way off in spec...I'm not really a Wilson fan anymore.

just consider-its made in nihon

Yessir, the QC is bar none the best I've encountered. Got 2 97T 330g in California, different stores mind you; and then another one here in Taipei. All the same wieght.

I'm switching over to the 310 version though and I'm confident they will be as good.


Volkl has a great one, at least with my PB10 mids.

Lilguy1456 04-29-2013 03:13 AM

Definitely won't be switching from Yonex...these frames are just too sweet, ESPECIALLY Yonex MIDS! My god...

tistrapukcipeht 04-29-2013 05:31 AM

yes it's great, but i'm sure it's not gonna be every racquet of the same kind the same weight. I remember I had my ezone xi's weighed in, 2 had the same weight and one had 3 grams more, balance the same,swingweight about 4 units (whatever you call) difference, I could not feel any difference switching between them, they played pretty nice, some of the best out there, at least 100 sq in they were on the top of my list.

Hey dude, I'm in Kaohsiung playing on clay. I had 3 RDS 001(90) rackets and 2 were the exact weight to the gram and the 3rd was 1g heavier. Yonex balls are also of superior quality.

Yeah, it makes it really hard to play Wilson. Especially when buying a used frame for an extended demo, and liking it, but then wondering if the next one or two you buy will be the same or very different racquets because of wild QC swings.

I'm still waiting on my order of the 310g 97t!!! Yonex hasn't received a shipment, and won't till sometime mid May...

Are you doing the tournament in Taizhong?

goober 04-29-2013 06:55 AM

Well my limited experience with yonex QC was not as good. I had two identical racquets bought from an authorized retail vendor. One was much harder to swing than the other. I had them tested out and one had a SW of 336 and the other 317. Sold them both and never bought yonex again.

zapvor 04-29-2013 07:09 AM

you are the first and only person EVER to say that about yonex....i say your retail vendor screwed up, whoever it was
