    do you work for RSL or are you just a huge RSL fanatic because it looks as though you are premoting there products and your name is "RSLCANADA", also in your other post you always reccommend RSL rackets. i know in many other threads people premote yonex rackets and products but it seems wierd that you are giving out the specs of all these rackets. i'm not saying it's a bad thing i'm just curious. maybe you could provide some text with them to let us no what your intentions :)

    I am the reps of RSL in Canada. You could visit our website www.rslcanada.com or our global website www.rsl-1928.com , I post some of top line racquets in RSL serires here. For I know they are very good quality and many people are looking to RSL racquet. I think the detail infor about the tech and weight may be helpful to these guys. I hope more people could have a try to know the quality.

    My friend is the Philippine distributor of RSL.

    I've tried almost all of the 3, 4 and 5 series.

    I liked the 4900, 3200 and X1 the best.

    Haven't tried any of the 6 series yet.

    How do they compare to the older models?

    Hm.., RSL seems to like black, grey, white-ish and red for their racquets, from what you've shown us.

    Most of RSL racquets are Even Balance. But you could have a try on RSL 5900, it's double play racquet, light. Faster than your X1 racquet.

    ok, tnx for the info. i'll try 5900 then. i'm kind of looking for a model thats like the old RSL 2200. i still prefer playing with it rather than my X1 and 3200.

    How does pricing info considered as commercial aspect? Many people using this site as a guide toward their racket purchase, and I am asking the MSRP for reference and not a discounted price on an individual that can offer.

    RSL 6800 6900 turn out good testing result

    I have test them for weeks, both turn out very professional. I like to use 6800 in double play, it's very good in that. And 6900 is more head heavy and extra long, good for single play. Impressive.

    this caught my attention...

    what are the 'anti-twist tech' the '3p' and the 'flex power'?

    whý is the the diamond x1 a singles racket? it's 3u, even balanced and stiff...sounds all-rounded to me...

    nice colours though.;)

    The 3p is where they put titanium meshes in the frame.

    1p = One titanium mesh at 12-o-clock
    2p = Two at about 4-o-clock
    3p = combination of 1p and 2p
    They say 1p is for more power, 2p is for more control (stability), and 3p is (you guessed it) for more power AND more control.


    Flex power probably has something to do with the flexpoint of the shaft. Or, as they say in their catalogue: "Flex Power is RSL's latest Technology by combining the characteristics of the Frame Design, Thin Flexible Shaft and matching it with the perfect Balance Point to give you Super power from a light weight frame."

    Anti-twist technology is a way to reduce torsion (the twisting of the shaft during hits), like yy's built-in T-joint.

    I have to be honest..that part is really very bad marketing.... 'perfect balance point' c'mon....

    the titanium si actually very interesting..Just teh "super power" and "pwoer ánd control" those statements really turn me away...

    though I think I might want to try one...someday...:rolleyes:
