Should I purchase a Yonex RQS 22, Wilson nBlade 98", or Yonex RD Ti-80???
oh. I am an aggressive baseliner, with a big kick second serve and a nice slider out wide, and a big backhand, and a semi-topspin forehand.
first - buy whatever racquet you felt most comfortable with out of those three.
second - what is a semi-topspin forehand?
instead of doing full rotations, the ball goes only through half rotations
probably meant semi-western.
i think the ti-80 will suit u.
u can hit some nasty kick and slice serves.
it is headlight and low powered, so u need to be able to generate ur own power.
oh i just meant that half the time i hit topspin, and when i don't hit topspin, i hit semi up the net (in the middle of the net) haha.
RDS 002 Tour it was a nice update to the ti80
o.k. i got that, so it's topspin halfway to the net and slice after it has passed the net.
getting back to the point - you have indicated three sticks of which i only happen to know the blades since i can't demo yonex racquets in this part of the world. so, i assume you made your choice by demoing and have settled for these three prior to your purchasing decision. what were your likes and dislikes about these three racquets?
well i have demoed the nblade and RD but not the RQS.... i don't know about that one... but i like that both the nblade and RD were somewhat low-powered, and seemed to suit my game well, I have an RDX 300 supermid, and i think that i may just be "outgrowing" it, because i have adjusted my swing since i have got it to generate more spin on my forehand, my backhand has always been solid, but my forehand is tending to fly, and i just don't feel like it is for me anymore, but I just wanted to know how everyone else liked the nblade or RD Ti-80 before i made my decision..... i Think i am leaning towards the RD-Ti 80....
i say other
i just can tell you about the blade - it's a wonderful control-oriented stick and in spite of it's 18mains stringbed, it allows you to play a really spinny ball, provided your technique is properly setup.
wilson!!!! the nblade is a REALLY great racquet from wilson... well thats if ur looking for a flexy racquet.
Semi-topspin means the ball spins three times in topspin, then takes a reverse and slices once. It then continues in this pattern until the drugs wear off.
that is maybe where you live, where i live it is topspin up to the net and slice after the net. that gives you the advantage of higher netclearance and lower unforced errors up to the net and then a flat trajectory and a skidding bounce on the other side of the net. it's not only the best of both worlds, it's the best in the galaxy.
