Drifit, just fall in love with Ti 88. I believe it will suit my play style due to its lightweight/even balance. It just like my Carlton Powerflo 807 Wide 85g/even balance. Can you inform me what is exactly Ti88 weight? I like to buy one if still available on market.

After reading all good stuff about RSL, I am thinking of getting a RSL instead of YY. Went to see racquets yesterday, was recommended RSL 7180 and 7200 (personally prefer 7180). Has anyone tried this before? How is this compared to 6800?
Oh yeah, I am looking for something suitable for a female double player with not much strength, more defensive playing with some smashes along the way
Thank you very much for any insight.

diamond x2 FP... very light... err... u might have to generate some of ur own power but very very good for defense... often times i swing too fast =P

You need to decide whether you need stiff or flexible racket:
The more explosive swing player will benefit more of a stiffer shaft in terms of control and power. The more slower swing player will benefit more from a flexible shaft.
Personally i think RSL not bad since i have a AP racket. SP would be suitable for you.

Thank you chome.
I think I need a flexible racquet, not enough strength to handle a stiff racquet.

Sorry that I'm too lazy to go through the whole thread. Can I have an idea on the difference between X2 Pro, X2 Sp and X2 AP? Thanks

Technically, the differences are their flex and weight:
X2 Pro = Extra Stiff, 89-91g
X2 AP = Stiff, 84-86g
X2 FP = Medium, 79-80g
X2 SP = Flex, 82-84g

I have tried X1, 6800, 6900 then finally paid to own Laser 6800 as my standby equipment in games. However, I have to admit that if you were quite sensitive, the temporary changing from Yonex to RSL wuld be too much to take. Even you can find the same 'heavy' weapons of Yonex & RSL , your feelings after shots are totally different. With RSL, I feel something like 'emptiness' after my impact to the bird; this makes me feel embarassed a little bit. I have also tried Laser 6800 in my trained sessions, finding out that it need me to adjust alot of my timing, and my wrist actions for the best results of defence, which are the main power of this kind of weapon.
In conclusion, Yonex makes me feel more real & confident; RSL helps me save my lost of energy in game, and may be support to my defensive strategy against the stronger opponents. If I want to be an attacker I will take Yonex; but if I wanna be an counter-attacker I will switch to RSL but still risky somehow.
Last, I'm in Saigon city of Vietnam. My weapons having in bag: Yonex MP 30, Yonex Cab 20sp, Yonex AT 700, Yonex AT 800 Off., and last RSL Laser 6800.

i think it is because most RSL rackets feels lighter and are more flexible than yonex racket of the same weight and class range. because of the flex in rsl rackets, it whips the shuttle for u so u don't have to use as much wrist power to bend the racket unlike the yonex which is stiffer. i don't know why, but a 85g rsl feels much lighter than a 85g yonex (that is still a mystery to me...) so i guess that tires ur hand less than the yonex cuz of different feel.

i have weighted the racquects (without string and grip, nett)
X2-FP (5U) = 80g (as per specs in catalogue)
X2-SP (4U) = 84g (as per specs in catalogue)
Yonex AT-900 T (3U) = 91g (hm... slightly out, as stated, 85-89.9g)
