I owned the older version of this racquet. In 2005, a new paint-job was done and the racquet looks different from before.

I want to buy another two of these racquets. A shop sells the "old" design for 90 €, while the "new" 2005 design is about 150 €.

Although I would like to try out the new design I don't want to pay so much more - if it's the same racquet...

Can anybody confirm that the only thing they changed is the paint? Because then I would definitely buy the old design in order to save money.

BTW I think this racquet is great. Anybody agrees?

I remebered you having five. :lol: Dunno why.^^

I know, I like it as well, but I don't see any sense in paying so much more for this new paint. But are you sure it is the same racquet technically-wise?

Do you mean those new yellow rackets? I think they're kind of ugly.

Yonex RD-Ti 80 (OLD) (http://www.dono.com.cn/images/star/Hantuchova-04.jpg)

And I want to know if anything besides the paintjob was changed (technical elements).

I know it does. I absolutely love it. But it's like two racquets for one prize now. And that only for a different paintjob, I don't know...

If it had better qualities I might have rethought it, but in this case it's not worth the thought even. :p

It is kind of like the stuff going on with Head Flexpoints. The racquets aren't dissimilar at all from what I've exprienced. I play with an Instinct Flexpoint and a normal Instinct and I can't tell the difference at all.

Well if it is the same design, I really don't see the use of paying a lot more for it. Anyways, I'll beat you with both Sascha ;)

:lol: I knew that this had to come.

I already ordered them. :)

Thanx everybody.

BTW, I think it is kind of an underrated racket, too. ;)
