Yonex rackets are amongst the best in the world. Based in Japan they have been manufacturing top class rackets since 1969. They produced legendary rackets such as the R-22 and RD7 which were instrumental in the success of tennis greats Billy Jean King, Martina Navratilova, Andre Gomez, Monica Seles and Martina Hingis. Among the current players using Yonex rackets are Ana Ivanovic, David Nalbandian, Elena Dementieva and Leyton Hewitt.
Yonex rackets' most distinctive feature is their rectangular headshape. This technology, patented in the USA, ensures that there are more equal length strings which gives them a better hitting zone.
The new RQis 30 racket (102) - Red features the Power Isometric System which sees the top and throat racket head straightened to have more mains (the strings running lengthways) with similar length. This increases the sweetspot more than 20% compared to ordinary oval-shaped rackets making it more difficult to miss-hit.
It increases the aerodynamic efficiency of the racket as it travels through the air which, combined with the shockless grommets, make it a good choice for beginners or recreational players.
Designed for 3.5 level players the 260g weight and even balance means this racket isn't just light, it feels light and is very manoeuvrable and the open 16x19 string pattern generates a lot of spin and is perfect for developing an all court game.
It is very comfortable to handle as it has the Yonex super cushion grip and is excellent value for money. It is a good choice for juniors wanting to switch to an adult-length racket.
