    I have use the M11 HEAT 600 for a few hours.
    Strung with BG66 at 25lbs.

    Vibration to the hand during games is very low.
    The feeling is very driect.
    Hard swing smash is powerful.
    Counter-smash return even better , replusion off-center of sweet spot is as strong as center contact.
    racket is well-balance.
    Like very much it for double play.


    Currently, i am also using
    1) Apacs Lethal 7- speedy defensive return, whoosh slicing sound during smashing
    2) Impact Super Power 8- Head heavy racket, hard smashing specialist
    3) RSL scream 098 - Balance, likely it for double play. but lost to HEAT 600 in all department
    except value 5 times cheaper for the frame.
    4) RSL scream 088 - light, not powerful , vibration is moderate. bUDGETRACKET
    5) RSL scream 0166 - stiffess racket among all the scream series.

    Conclusion: if budget is no issue, i strongly recomend M11 HEAT 600 over yonex
    arc-saber z-slasher. for value.

    what do you guys think about the RSL M10 Extreme 90 as a beginner's racket? i saw one at a website of a local sports dealer for 42usd. is it good? there is also this yonex isometric zeta at about the same price but the RSL could be strung higher than the yy. (heck the yonex's recommended string tension is only 15-20; maybe i can string to 22 but i'll void the warranty.)

    Hey guys does RSL have anything that is stiff and head heavy (think Armortec 900P or LN N90) or very stiff and even balance? (think Arc10)? Thanks in advance :)

    a bit off topic, but i'm sad today. I noticed that there is a crack in my 16 year old RSL racquet. A bit sad now. Looking at it, man RSL has changed, there is no colour on this thing at all. Just black and purple. It's kinda amazing how different the RSL racquets looks now compared to before.

    is there no edit button??? anyway

    besides RSL's website, is there anywhere that sells RSL racquets in canada? I'm just a bit curious because i noticed something today. RSLcanada's price is exactly 20% more then the US counterpart. (x5's is 170Cad or 136US, x2's 160Cad or 128US). That.. kinda upsets me a bit.

    I've made an offer of $125 and he accepted it for the X5 Silver. Best price I've seen out there & authentic also (I know what you're thinking because of eBay but trust me on this..)

    kinda curious for the ppl that have RSL racquets...

    I have 2 X2's and i know of 2 others that have X2's as well. Is it really common that the top 4 grommets breaks? I have yet to break my strings without the grommet breaking first. Generally i have 2 broken grommets (from the top 4) before my strings break somewhere but this happens to both my racquets. My friend's racquet has the same thing, broken grommet on the top 4 grommets. Is this a common thing or something or is it something else?

    Just got these from Eric. Must be RSL's new racket lineup for 2012. M11 Evolution Vr.1, 2 & 3.
    New technology called "Weight Variation". Wondering how that would affect gameplay...

    i bought it directly from RSL canada (they are based in montreal). When i say the grommets break (i assume it's a design thing) the 4 middle grommets always break. They break off can move up and down the string, there is no way else to describe it.

    as for the evolution, i kinda wish i could try using that thing first but maybe the X2 prices will go down then.

    pics of the 3 evolution rackets from another website

    guess it allows you to tailor it to the weight you want.

    So it just like lead tape on top the frame? And different butt cap weights for balance? Seems kinda gimicky.

    look interesting.. WPS will provide more balance setup to play with.. and every time to change its setup balance you need to cut your string first... how will the WPS plastic stand higher tension.. hope its wouldn't break into pieces once restring at higher tension.. :D.. butt cap... errm.. apacs lurid kinda of thing :D..hope the cap weight didnt flies off easily :D..
