After hours reading, I need opinion of these two, only.
Specs are allmost similar, just stiff and SW are +2 for APDC. Anyone played with both?

apdc creates more spin, needs harder hitting, more stiff than white. white has bigger sweet spot and better for guys with elbow and arm problems. white hits more flat serve and shots.

Totally different sticks. The Bab feels much more solid to me than the white. The white has the different 03 feel which some love and some hate. I'm kinda in between. Having said that, I love my apdc, great all around stick: to me it feels heavier than the white but that's just my opinion.

Thanks people for answering.
Is really that different? I like APDC ''couse it is spin friendly, but probably go with O3 better for my arm... Now I am in real dillema

I don't find the apdc to be arm unfriendly at all. I'm 43 so I'm no spring chicken and I love it. Hit with them both and it will become very apparent which way to go. I like the White and enjoy hitting with it from time to time. I even enjoyed the new black as well but I can't imagine wanting to own one...but that's just me. There's a reason the White was one of the best selling racquets in the country and that reason is maria shara.....oops! Seriously though, the white is really nice and go with the one you like.

I have made decission yesterday: O3 white, but I saw some very good review from TripleB for RDS002 light version... hmmm, where is the end?

In the end, your choice was probably pretty clear wasn't it? I think you'll like the white. I can see a similarity between the White and the apdc; however, the yonex is a totally different animal. The answer is that it NEVER ends :)

never aaaaaaaaaaaa :) haha, I know that...
Maybe the main reason for choosing white is arm friendly! But looking at tripleB reviews...002 light seem's to be a winner... I wish to win some lottery... now...:).
If someone can tell me is 002 arm friendly... I am loosing will...

no arm probs with the APDC. Most arm probs are from bad technique. As a teaching pro I have corrected quite a few elbow issues with technique alone.

Probably my technique not as good, but I know that some racquets give me so vibrations and arm pain after only few hits.
Yonex 002?

i played with both, i liked O3 better. my APDC got strung not very lightly and my friends O3 White is real tight with poly. APDC isn't very good at loose tensions for sure.

My take would be O3 White

The white is by far better than the APD w/ cortex. The cortex cannot mask the awful feel of the Apd. Terrible racquet.

Hola Rasha,

Don't worry, in a few months you will be ordering an AeroProDrive Cortex.

Or not :) I play with the black (almost identical to the white), and I think it much better that the APDC
