    Thumbs up

    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?)

    I think they are
    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

    3. LT = Light
    muscle = muscle power frame. yonex incorporates their muscle power technology into the frame. from the promo materials, muscle power frame have rounded edges form stringing that allows the string to fir the frame better. but some so called muscle power frame do not have that smooth edge e.g. cab30MS, cab 10 tour, etc..

    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)

    but there are also racquets with the Muscle Power Frame that do not have MS in the name. e.g. Ti-10 (later versions only, I think)

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

    Lightbulb 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.

    Default 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 ?

    the balance (head heavy vs. head light). if you look at the chart for the 4 different TiSP, they are good examples as they have one representative per quadrant:

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

    from my understanding, they are determined by combination of overall weight and head heaviness.

    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!

    can you make the AT700, AT800s, and MP100 fit that theory?

    (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)

    actually, i tend to agree. i think the chart looks kinda artificial. they seemed to have conveniently put the cab20 in the middle and then just fit everything else around it.

    A guy I know at a racketstore, he theorizes that the chart is based on the statistics of professional players, not on engineering intent.

    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.

    BG-66 are not available in Japan, therefore, the graph doesn't have it.
