    Is there a future for Yonex Dr 98+ ?

    This racket got very good comments from the TW test crew but it seems to be impossible to buy it outside of US. TW Europe doesn't sell it and I head from a person who had been in contact with Yonex in Japan that they didn't have any in stock and they didn't know when or even if they was gona...

    Pros and cons of adding weight to the handle

    Besides from obviously increasing the weight of the racquet, how is the performance affected when weight is added to the handle of the racquet? The racquet will be more HL but the head will still have the same weight and (from what I understand) the SW wont go down either so will the racquet...
