Thread: Yonex selection chart

first of all I would like to thank Nget Khar for finding informative the chart on yonex racquets
I have 3 questions:
1. what does ms (at the end of the name) mean?
2. what does mf (at the end of the name) mean?
3. and what makes the Light (LT) in the name change? (what does LT mean?)

1. MS = Muscle
don't know what it means about the racquet though
2. MF = MegaFrame
even more iso shaped head than the normal isometric shape heads.
supposed to give a bigger sweet spot
frame is weaker though
3. LT = Light

what does light mean?

LT = light which means it is the lighter version of the model. e.g. Ti-7 is normally in 2U weight (90gms) but the light version is 3U (85gms)

So LT would probably be for racquets that originally were not available in the lighter weight, but now are?

Yonex Racquet & String Chart
I've attached the document from the Yonex (JP) page after translating it according to what I've read on this forum.

Doube / Single Racket ?
I understand that offensive/defensive rackets are determined by the stiffness of the shaft.
But what's the difference betwwen a "double" racket and a "single" racket ?

SX = stiff + head heavy
SS = stiff + head light
SR = less stiff + head heavy
SA = less stiff + head light

heavier overall and more head heavy are for singles. vice versa for doubles.

Many thanks. I know what to choose next time. There wasn't any choice in older days!

(I'm not having a go at you, it's just that the Yonex chart seems to make no allowance for the 2U,3U,4U differences)

Meaning... if racket X is classified as an offensive doubles racket on the chart, it isn't that Yonex actually made racket X specifically to be an offensive doubles racket, but rather, after having distributed the racket to their play-testing team, it just so happened that the majority of players who preffered this racket were offensive doubles players. Then they just add up the stats and see which racket rates where.
Just a theory, anyhow, but it rather seems logical to me.
I mean... you don't see many people playing deffensive with a smash machine like an MP-100, etc. So in effect, if you beleive in this theory, then chosing a racket according to the chart has nothing to do with it's intended function, it's actually just chosing according to what the predominant number of other players use that racket for.
