Yonex users appreciate the brand’s commitment to making tournament-player-level racquets. The RDiS 100 joins the RD002 Tour frame as the heaviest in the Yonex family, but it’s not as head light, so this hefty stick not only requires high skill but also a high fitness level to wield it through three sets. You have to work to harness the racquet’s power, as top-notch players can do with long, fast strokes, but it has excellent control if you bring the heat. You’ll also be rewarded with heavy slice, great feel and touch at the net, and rock-solid stability that forgives many mishits. Big servers can produce incredible speed and spin. The RDiS also comes in a 98-square-inch version if you like a more conventionally sized mid-plus face. Our recommendation - try both to see which one works for you.
Bottom Line: This racquet is a class act for tournament-ready players fit enough to go the distance.
The ultimate control racquet for advanced players, the Yonex RDis 100 Mid features the brand's trademark isometric square head shape reducing the inert space found in a conventional round frame. As a result, the racquet is easier to swing through contact
