I am a beginner and have already a Prince Ozone 7. The Prince is 27.25" and 105 sq. in. and the swingweight is 325g/11.35oz while the static weight 301g/10.5oz. I want something more compact and headlight. The racquet does not feel heavy but feels bigger than I like.
I am 173cm/ 5ft 8" and weigh 67-68kgs/148lbs. Do lots of activities, not very strong in arms but fit.
So I want to try something different than the Prince. The Yonex are headlight and also not heavy. I have the feeling that the RDS 003 specs
are closer to my Prince Ozone 7
than the RDS 002

I can't demo any of these. I have an inclination towards the Yonex RDS 002 (not the Tour version). Any suggestions, feedback, opinions appreciated.
