Fans of flexible midsize Yonex player's racquets such as the old RDX 500 Mid will love the response of this one. Going head to head with the best midsize offerings, this one adds superb feel, a silky smooth response from its flexible frame and excellent access to spin. With a healthy strung weight of just over 12 ounces, this racquet offers the stability and mass required by advanced level players. The head light balance not only makes for easy positioning, but it allows topspin players to explode through the hitting zone and create a heavy ball. The midsized head comes loaded with feel -- perfect for pinpoint precision, not only on touch shots, but on powerful shots, too. An impressive offering, this one is best suited to 4.5+ level players seeking excellent feel, outstanding stability, and dialed in precision.
