So I had a longer hit with this rqt this morning, and my hitting partner said that the balls were coming thru a bit heavier and with a tad more spin. That along with it feeler a tad stiffer over the red version makes me wonder about the frame. I'm wondering how much the difference between the normal black grommets & the clear grommets make impact on the feel. Maybe the clear ones are a bit softer. I'm going to try the 25th edition with clear grommets soon.
Looking at this rqt in isolation, it plays better than the YouTek version, more comfortable & more powerful.
I also changed the pallets on the rqt to a set I'd ordered from my supplier, and it seems a better size. Weird.
