    Are the Yonex S-Fit racquets considered part of Yonex's premiere racquets, I was just wondering cause I don't see any pro's using them at the Australian open. Usually when new racquets come out the pro's use their paintjobs first.

    Japanese pro women were using it... and yes it is a premiere racket but more on the powerful side than the so called players rackets like RDS series.

    They're more of tweener racquets... but even pros use tweener racquets.

    S-fit racquets are like Wilson's FX models. Same question can be applied to the Fx racquets. I haven't seen a pro using those either.

    Kimiko Date plays S-Fit 3 and Kirilenko will change to S-Fit 1 in the near future.

    where did hear from about Kirilenko using the S-Fit 1 in future? the specs are quite different between her current racquet RDIS 2 Tour and the S-Fit 1.

    not sure about that. Kirilenko has always used Extended rackets like 27.5 inches long RQIS tour-2. all the S-fit 1 rackets are standard length. Unless they are making another one that is extended version ???

    I'm surprised Hewitt and Ivanovic aren't using them. Unless S-Fits are going to be in addition to RQ and RD sticks.

    Anybody know if some new RD or RQ sticks will be coming out?

    I picked up the Yonex S-fit 1 Lite hoping to make it my new main racket. Switching up from the RQS 11. I have tryed to replace it so far with the RQiS 2 Tour (didn't not like how much power it had with a big loss in control) and the RQiS XL 100 (not enough power).
    I hit around with my S-Fit 1 Lite for two hours. I like the power (more power then the RQS11 but less then the RQiS 2 Tour. Control is not has good as the RQS 11 but better then the RQiS 2 Tour. Amazing amount of spin. I just have to get use to the stiffness. It will most likely be my racket of choice for this year for sure.

    Because they weigh like feather. Too light for pro level play.

    The S-Fit 1 is 11.1 oz strung, which is hardly a feather.
