By Bill Gray and Bruce Levine on May 20, 2010

Yonex is introducing four fairly light racquets with 100–112-square-inch hitting areas in its S-Fit line. The sticks are unusual offerings from a brand best known for advanced-player racquets with smaller head sizes. Playtesters tried out three of the racquets and preferred the S-Fit 1 Lite hybrid, which they found to be comfortable to swing and highly maneuverable. (The fourth frame, the S-Fit 1, wasn’t available for testing.) The racquet offers decent stability, which Yonex claims is due to Dual O.P.S, its split-shaft construction in the throat. Many of our playtesters, however, thought the frame didn’t stand up to blazing drives from opponents and complained about some twisting on off-center hits at net. S-Fit, or the Select Fit System, is a grommet strip that allows players to choose between two stringing options—one pattern provides enhanced comfort and power, the other better touch. Most playtesters preferred the first.

Bottom Line: For defensive retrievers who don’t often run up against hard-hitters or opponents who force them to net.
