i think the L things refer to swing type you have - i could be wrong though. i'm not going to comment because don't like yonex. i spent $400 on one a few years ago and after using it for a month or so i just gave up on it and bought a babolat. they're good racquets, they just don't fit with certain types of games though.

OK, thanks so far.
Well I was not happy with the Yonex RD-Ti 80 (my actual raquet) in the beginning because I had no power in the shots and my serve was strange the first two weeks. But then I found out how to handle it and I really love it now bc I can play aggressive and defensive quite well. I just wanna know if it would be a good thing to buy it.

before i got the rd ti 80, i also demoed the Vcons and to me i dont knwo, maybe it was the strings on the demo but i felt like it wasnt solid like it was kind of "mushy" for lack of a better word. i felt like iw as pushing the ball rather than solidly hitting it, l ove the rd ti 80, i have 5 of them and theryre the best raqcuet i ever had!

I HAVE the Rd-Ti 80 as well, but this V-con is good for my power what lacks me with the Rd-ti 80.

I have a Volkl racket, which I LOVE. I did test out a Yonex, and I hated it. If you are going for something totally new, try the Volkl Quantum VI Midplus..it's great.

Corina Morariu-get better soon! I miss cheering for you!!

Like AgassiGirl16 said before, you should try something different and see which one is better for your games.

I had the Völkl Quantum 10, it was a good racket but I got tennis elbows bc I dont think it is a good racket for ppl. who have problems with that...

The Yonex V-Con series is very expensive, they are about £125 in this country. What kinda of style do you like to play. Are you desperate for a Yonex raquet?

Yeah whe I buy raquets I generally buy the ones of my faves. Like I bought the old Dokic Head Raquet which she used in 2002, and Im going to switch from the Wilson H6 to the Yonex MP used by Dokic, KOurnikova and Dementieva.

I play with a lot of variety and the Yonex Rd-Ti 80 gave me a lot of control. But I have a lack of power with this compared to the Völkl Quantum 10 I had b4. I played this V-Con and i was really okay. I think I need a racket that gives me more power (esp. on clay)... My serve is the only point that didnt improve - bc of the power I dont have....
