    Default Yonex selection chart

    On the Yonex Japan site, they have a chart showing all their racquet models spread over four quardants with the Cab20L in the top right corner. Can anyone tell me what the quardant represents? I would include the chart here but don't know how to include a graphic witht the posting.

    The chart can be found here http://www.yonex.co.jp/badminton/feature/mp/style.html

    Default Re: Yonex selection chart

    Hey Peter,

    The chart explanation is as follows:

    The top of the y-axis reads as " smash/attacking style" and the bottom of that axis reads as " receive/defensive style". On the x-axis the far right reads as " singles-orientated " and the far left side as " doubles-orientated ".
    Hope this helps!

    Steplantis,
    Thank you. That's great. So what they are saying is that if you are a singles player with an attacking style, the Cab20L is probably the racquet for you.

    Interesting and the normal Cab20 is right in the center which basically explains why it has been one of the best all round racquet since its introduction.

    Note: The X axis labels are mixed up in the image posted by bigredlemon. They should state "doubles" on the left and "singles" on the right.

    Non-Japanese speakers can translate the page showing the racket and string tables by submitting its url (http://www.yonex.co.jp/badminton/feature/mp/style.html) to babelfish (http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/tr).

    Note: Text in images is not translated. The 5 string names that remain in Japanese are (from top to bottom): BG65-t1, BG75-t1, BG-88t1, BG-68t1, CBG-100.

    Interestingly, Yonex recommends using either BG75-t1 (attack) or BG88-t1 (control) with the MP-50s, MP-70s, and MP-80s. Both strings are close to the middle of the attack/control axis.

    OTOH, Yonex recommends using either BG65-t1 (attack) or BG68-t1 (control) with the MP-90s and MP-100s. Both strings are near the extremes of the attack/control axis. Judging from the chart, the CBG-100 sounds like a better choice over BG68-t1 as it provides somewhat better control and durability...

    Cheers,

    Mike

    G'day,

    So what does the size of the circle mean? For example, MP 70/77 and MP80/88 has a bigger circle than MP90/99, Ti-10 etc.?

    Anyone know?

    Hmmmm....

    BG68Ti being a control oriented string?? According to back of the string's package it is more of a power bouncy string and I tend to agree with it. BG80 has more control than BG68Ti in my opinion.....

    Means they are flexible (Not as in shaft flexible) and cover more area so it could be used in both singles or doubles etc. If you only had one small dot it would be made specifically for that and likely not anything else and if you had a huge circle it would be sort of an all around racquet.

    The string chart does provide surprising results indeed. BG68-ti is positioned much closer to the "control" end of the Y axis than BG88-t1. In fact, it's almost as "control oriented" as CBG-100 while being apparently more repulsive but less durable.

    The Yonex page describing BG68-ti also states that it is meant for control players !!(http://www.yonex.co.jp/badminton/pro...ing/bg68t.html).

    Makes one wonder how this product positioning was derived by Yonex

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Was doing a search looking for this Yonex selection chart to print out for a friend who wanted to purchase a Yonex racquet, and thought it deserved a bump for some of our newbie members out there still wondering which Yonex racquet to get and how they are compared.

    For anyone in the know, does Yonex have an updated version of this chart that includes the armortec series? It is not listed when I checked the link.

    It's a good explanation of how the charts can be interpreted.. but how are they made??

    Being more or less specific is a rather vague criterium. How do they measure this exactly? What are the scientific criteria for making such a chart? How to determine to 'location' of the elipse on the chart and how to determine its size??

    If we have a scientific method of determining it, it would be interesting to make big chart that shows properties for all brands of rackets. I would like to see how the Woven series and the Yonex series compare for example..

    Why no chart on the North American site? They don't care enough about Cdns do they? I would have liked to know where MP22,24,30,33,44 would be placed. I could search but..
    nah.. I already bought a BK racket
