Deep purple would be sweet. I can't recall a players' racquet ever having a purple cosmetic but I'd buy one in a heartbeat for sheer aesthetic value regardless of specs.Bought a blue DR 98+ a couple weeks ago and loving the look.
Hopefully they come out with the extended 27.5 length, but it is missing from the YonexUSA site so hope is low. Maybe a few months from now?
Wish this was in blue too, but I wouldn't mind a deep purple or deep green.
Regardless, Yonex's recent cosmetics have been really nice. Using black as a base color with bright secondary colors is a great idea--black sticks look super badass, but the other colors make them recognizable and interesting.
Re: the new stick's specs, I'm glad they kept the beam size the same. That's one of my favorite parts of the DR98+. The thicker beam in the head makes it feel solid but still retains the flex from the thinner throat.
