Yonex Isometric TR1 - Yonex's first training racket
Yonex is jumping into the training racket bandwagon with the release of the TR1. it's first ever training racket that is supposed to weigh 118g.
supposed to stay closer to a regular racket than most other iterations of training racket out there.

looks like a mid/low end price racket. some Japanese outlets has listed it at around 7000 yen.

that's roughly in the range of the list price the shop has ($70 cdn). Even if they don't throw in free stringing as per their usual practice, it'll only cost me 80 total to string it. For me it beats ordering from mbs + shipping.

it looks like metal frame + graphite shaft, am I right?

Graphite head + graphite shaft + built-in t-joint.
Made in China

perhaps this model has the highest recommended tension ever by yy... 30 Lbs
wonder if we compare yy iso tr1 against victor wrist enhancer 120 ... (both shares the same weight)

Hmm, I rather stay with my Kason training racket.

haha. we won't be satisfied unless we see different angles and closeups...

here are the pics.
FTR, the racket isn't that heavy IMO. Granted I haven't started hitting with it, but the dry weight is only 5 grams heavier than an OLLDDDDDDD Carlton steel frame I have sitting at home. The cover however is a nice touch. Meshy enough to not have that much wind resistance if one decides to hit with the cover on, but light enough to add only a minimal amount of weight.
Caveat: In the total weight, the plastic wrap is off, OEM grip on, one layer of rkep G16 grip.
