Apart from the Yonex itself, obviously, which grip shape is most similar ?
a slightly smaller wilson, I'd say
I found Dunlop grip shape fairly similar to Yonex, Head is more rectangular, Prince is more square.
For me it's Dunlop also. I would say Prince is second then Wilson.
between Prince and Dunlop.
Babolat IMO, but feels bigger.
The dimensions of the bevels (how wide they are relative to each other) is most like Dunlop, the overal shape (square) is most like Wilson. I actually prefer Dunlop and Wilson to Yonex, but grip shape is about the most personal thing in tennis.
for me to grip shape is a very important part of the racket. I prefer to completely round. Yes, Dunlop, and a little less, Wilson reminded Yonex, but not completely sure. My method, cut a few thick layers of glossy magazine covers and put them under the grip. As a result, the handle size is not changed, but the sense of square faces is less noticeable.
I've played during a lot of time with Yonex racquets. Then I changed to Wilson and Dunlops. I don't feel a big difference among these 3.
My Yonex R-22 has a similar grip, almost the same as the Wilson.
The new ones as BartelBy said is more like a smaller version of Wilson.
Dumlop's 4 3/8 equals Yonex 4 1/2 to say the least.
Of course when you consider the rackets, Yonex is far better than Prince,Babolat, Wilson and Dunlop in just about every category.
And between Yonex and Volkl,what is your opinion on quality and feel of the rackets?
