Ok so i had decided from the other thread and reviews from friends to get the RDS001 MP but then i saw the RDS 002, so which should i get. I am a 3.5- 4.0 player who relies on his groundstrokes but ends points at the net. I use all spins and i can play great D using my speed and change of pace and spin. I run around my backhand quite a bit to use my favorite shot the inside out forehand, but i do struggle to find the sweet spot sometimes.

then i definitly say get a RDS 002, i have one and i love it, i tried the rds 001 MP but i just didn't like serving or volleying with it. it has a nice sweet spot and i think its well suited for your game. i would of course demo them first, but i say go with the rds 002, good luck

Coming from RD-7s, I'm sure I would prefer the RDS 002 Tour. However, the RDS 001 MP might be the wiser choice for most people on this board... including me :)

I also tried the 001 first thinking it was lighter & I could customize as I liked. I ended up putting quite a bit of lead at 10 & 2 which did help a lot. I then got the 002 tour (4 5/8) and I feel it is much more stable, has better feel & control

Demo both! There's no way that we can predict with certainty which you will like.
