what are you waiting for???
Boring 10 char
thanks you put my thread right back to the top!!!
I'm stringing up my 2008 RDS 001 now...maybe I'll take pics when it's done.
Here's the ice breaker!
my first Yonex collection ...
Then the rest followed!
I bet she feels and plays real sweet !!
ILLEGALLY PLACED APOSTROPHE!
This kind of stuff does not help Yonex players with the reputation of being lonely. . .

Then here is the Martina Hingis edition....
Do you mind i'm eating here.
Could you comment on how the RD ti-50 hits? Thanks.
this my collection as of now i will update more pics when i recieve my rds 001 mid
the rd ti-50 hits very nice, great spin, low powered, idk what exactly to tell you, if u want ask me more specific questions then ill anwser them, but in the future i may be selling off one of these because i have too many racquets and they keep on coming
I think I have somewhat of an idea of how they might hit. I have experimented with a shortened rd ti-70 long with good success. The only problem I have with the racket is the flex you can feel in the middle of the stroke. I added extensive amounts of lead to the hoop of the 70 because it was so head light stock. It plays quite well.
It can be unnerving to feel the racket giving like that in the throat. I have experienced it before with the C10 pro, but not this extent.
Does the RD ti-50 have the same type of flex in the throat?
i didnt really find much flex for me in the throat it was mainly around the head i felt the most flex, all my shots were very mushy with this racquet, but it was with great power and spin
I know a place where I can get a few of these new, I may give it a shot for fun.
yeah, the ti-70 produced a lot of flex for me, The added mass in the hoop may have contributed to that feel. I didn't feel it prior to adding lead.
yea thats true actually of my two one of them has 4 grams of lead at the 3 and 9 and the one with lead took away some of that flex around the head, i still use these ocassionally, but my sis enjoys the one with lead and i can never figure out how she can handle a 12oz racquet like this, when shes only 14
RDX 500 mp, gotta post a pic later
I will play..
RD Ti 70 Long
RD Ti 70 88
Didn't you start the thread requesting pictures of babolat logos stenciled onto other people's racquets? And you say this is boring when all you wanted were pictures of lines?
BTW this is what my babolat logo looks like on my racquet:
ooooo...ahhhhhh; that should get you excited.....
Maestro Nalbandian, How do you find the RQiS2 Tour compared to your 001? What differences do you notice?
- RA3000 Pro (Japanese version of SRD Tour90)
- SRD Tour 90
- SRD Tour 95
Well, quite different sticks they are. The 001MP is more control focused while the Rqis2 has a lot more power and spin due to the extra 0.5" length. I actually put 20grams worth of lead tapes on the handle of Rqis2 to make it more headlight (stock was too evenly balanced for my liking), currently at 6pts HL and 328g. Stock 001MP is 8pts HL and 330g and similar swing weight of around 325. Based on specs alone they are quite close right now but the Rqis2 is still more poweful and produces a lot more spin.
Hope that helps.
which one is easier for the hand?
What do you mean by easier for the hand?
whic one stresses less the hand's muscles
They are very similar in that respect, if I had to pick one I'd say the 001MP is less stiff (although TW suggests otherwise)
nice rds 001's!
what is that overgrip??
Laserfibre Tourfit Twintones--not an overgrip. I use Supergrap for overgrips. I highly recommend these grips though if you like leather but don't want to alter the balance with added weight. Look good to, eh?
they are cool grips ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Does any one find that before the RDS sereies the colours seemed to plain and so same? like black and silver, black and red not phunk but now YELLOW AND BLACK tracks bees from all over the country XD
i personaly like those (new) colour. And i think that the visual identity is now stronger than before. You can tell that this is a Yonex for miles if you see the paint no matter if it's yellow, red, black, orange or blue.
I think every raquet in the 90's seemed to be effeted by depression cause they had no life in them gosh only if picasso painted the racquetsin before he hit the buckets
