OK, so its taken me a while to actually be bothered to start writing this thread, but i decided to give you all some info anyways..... how kind of me......... j.k

but anyways, when i was out at my proshop getting my brand-spanking new LM Prestige Mid, i asked about any up and coming rackets that would be out in the future, and one of the assistants said that Wilson were taking out a new W Line (but everyone knows that anyways) and that Yonex were gonna make one final update to their rackets and then not add anymore to the range until 2007 (i think that was the date, anyways it was a long time away) and he hinted that there would be Nanospeed RDX out sometime this year or early next. And then i asked him if Head were making a Flexpoint Prestige and he said "Yes, We'll Have Them Next APRIL" and i'm like April? and he's all Yes April -.-' and i'm like wahey! :) and then he goes "But it probably going to have as much Flexpoint as my wooden racket at home" and i was just lmao.

so any thoughts or opinion?

ps. don't shoot the messenger........

pps. April is the release date for teh UK, its probably going to be available in the US earlier.......

also, now i need to save up even more money, since TW said they'd prolly have some PC600's in around that time as well...........

From what you heard, did it sound like Yonex was going to make one final (Completely different) line of racquets until 2007 AND they were going to release a new nanospeed or RDX racquet? Wow, this sounds intriguing. Maybe Yonex is going to release a tour version of the Nanospeed RQ 7....because they are availble in Japan. Is there a way you can find out any more info? (maybe you could stop back by the store...)

no from my understanding of it, they are going to create a nanospeed RDX then stop making additions until around 2007.....

Are you sure that's what the guy meant? A Nanospeed RDX? That's like 2 lines combined...That's gotta be a first. And when exactly is that coming out? I might call Yonex next time I get some free time and ask them if they can release any information about their new line!

Nanospeed+RDX don't make much sense. As is my understanding, the feature of the RDX line is that it has a stiff hoop coupled with a flexy shaft. Then I read about the Nanospeed and its feature is that the lower hoop and throat are stiffened using the latest+greatest technology created in the fires of Mt. Doom(I'm paraphrasing here. Or at least trying to).
So the combo of these 2 techs seems unlikely. I guess we'll see.

I heard that Head is going to bring out a line of tweener style racquets based on the instinct but lighter.
