I am hoping to have some advice on which racket I should get next. I have demo Yonex RDS001MP, Yonex RDS002(standard), Wilson K Factor KSix-One 95 (18x20) Racquets, Babolat AeroPro control.

I found the RDS001MP quite good but felt it lacked power.
The RDS002 standard was too light
The Wilson was a bit too heavy and I could not get enough spin from it
The Aeropro is not in production anymore

I currently use the Babolat Pure Control and like the racket but looking to step up to next level to add more power to my game but keeping the control.

I have quite a flat forehand, mainly a slice backhand.

Does anyone have any suggestions which one I should go for?

the pure control sounds good look into different string and tension befor buying a new stick, but if you want more power but still control try the pdr

What is the difference between RDS 002 Tour and RDS 001 MP.
Also is it worth getting the RDS 002 standard

the nPro open is for you then

and if you feel it's too light then lead it up and if you like the RDS 002 and think it's too light then lead it up

why you recommend the npro, what are its qualities?

it's forgiving, it can be leaded up and it's more powerful, and it has good control

I just completed a playtest review for T-W. One of the racquets in the playtest was the RDS002 Standard (other two were the Wilson K6-1 Team and Head MG Radical MP)...I loved everything about this racquet except I felt it needed a little more mass in the head when playing against hard hitters.

I think if you were to add some lead tape to the 002 then it might be just what you're looking for....give it a shot and see what you think.

I've got a couple demos coming in next week: Yonex RDS002 Standard (again), Prince O3 White, Head MicroGel Extreme Pro, and Fischer Magnetic Tour Light. I'll try to put up a post after I've tried them a couple days to let you know how the three compare to the RDS002.

Thanks TripleB, that is some good info., it be much appreciated if you can post your reviews up once you tested them. Just wondering if you tried the RDS002 Tour version, how does that compare to RDS002 standard. Also I notice there is a SL and UL version of the tour, am I correct...

so TripleB do you think the RDS002 Tour is a racket worth getting, is it similar to the Babolat Pure control

I would recommend the Yonex RDS003, i did research of it, because i was between that and the Head Microgel Extreme ( I bought the head cuz spin)..

But this Yonex frame helps you to keep your control and add some power to your game ;)

I would also recommend if you like prince the O3 White or The O3 Ozone Seven!!

I think the RDS003 is too light. Any other suggestions
