    Never said that to the best of my knowledge; at least not when it comes to woven.

    If the RDI is too much, you will get tired faster.

    If the RDI is too low, the racket will eventually break, for a hard hitter. Very low RDI rackets are designed for beginners.

    Overall, the ideal RDI is to find the highest RDI racket that you can sustain over a long period of time and drop 1/2 or so, just to be on the safe side.

    RDI Ideals:
    Beginner - Beginner: 1-5
    Intermediate to Advanced Beginner: 3-6
    "D" Level: 4-7
    "C" Level to Pro: 5-8.5
    Heavy Hitters and MIShitters*: a minimum of 6

    *Regardless of level

    As always, relatively speaking, above "8.0" is very demanding and not realistic for the average player.

    The majority of the intermediate to advanced players will fall in the 6.0 - 8.0 range.

    Based on RDI, Yonex is the best. They really know RDI as most of its rackets fall into the ideal RDI range.

    Victor, Chai Pai, APACs and Kason are good too. Some companies that have the widest range of RDI: Mizuno, SOTX and RSL.

    To All My Dear Brothers & Sisters on Badminton Central:

    Please do not ask this Panda to compare rackets. There are many reasons why Panda cannot do it:

    1) May not have tried one or more of the rackets.

    2) Panda is busy making rackets

    3) Panda is busy answering FAQs and working on the reviews

    4) Panda is busy eating one of the following: Nasi Goreng Special, Kung Pao Three Items, Thai BBQ Chicken, Walnut Shrimp, Penang Beef, Fish Tacos, Escargot, Sashimi Geo Duck in spicy sesami oil sauce, Hokkien Mee Soup, Mastro's Ribeye or Peter Luger's PorterHouse Steak.

    5) Panda is...if you really have a question, PM, thanks.


    P.S. Panda's don't really eat escargot.

    Just got my T2 few days ago and played for my first time yesterday with string BG66 strung at 26lbs.
    The string broke after 2 games yesterday nite....T_T
    But overall, T2 is easier to play and control compared to T1.

    I finally got to try my T2 tonight for a little bit - it handles very nicely! I'll try it some more tomorrow.

    An update on my T2.

    Original review here:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...postcount=1234

    Having played 4 more solid hours with it, still more than pleasantly surprised by how light and quick it is. Especially useful for defence: smashes that previously I couldn't retrieve, now can be returned easily with a wrist flick. Clears, drives are effortlessly powerful when wrist snap technique is executed.

    Smash timing for me however is still off due the faster racket head speed. I kept hitting the top frame or the top few cross strings. But when I rememberd to wait and connected properly several times, it was a wonderful feeling! Very addictive.

    Also had a chance to try out the U2, similarly spec'd as my T2.
    On playing, it was stiffer and more solid feeling than the T2. Head speed not as fast as T2. Quite some heft in the swing, so clears and smashes are more powerful, but defence is slower. Got noticeably tired using it for 15 mins in a MD game. I'm not strong enough to wield it properly, will stick to my T2.

    My next step is to increase the string tension on the T2. Since it is more flexible than my previous TiSP SS, I think I'll up it by 2 lbs to 23-24 with the wonderful Zymax 67 strings that were on Takamsda's demo U2.

    Unhappy

    Panda's sad.

    Just before sending the Ultra Woven Prototype (UWP) to it's eagerly awaiting, proud, new owner in Australia, Panda figured to test it and make sure everything was good. A few clears, a few smashes, a few drives, some defense...Panda didn't even get past the clears...

    ...on a backhand clear, this is what happened below. ...

    Prior to it breaking, Panda has to say the UWP was one of the most stable, most satisfying rackets to hit. So solid and powerful. However, Panda could feel the shaft really flex, but didn't think this would happened. Oh well, back to the drawing board.
