I played with the apd (non cortex) and now with the tflash 310 (never hit with the rds002).

The only thing i can tell you, test the tflash.
I switched to it immediatly. It is very solid, much more Feel (in my opinion) than the apd and easier to move (much space for customazation), you dont feel the 310gr.

And for me, much more control.

cons: service, you have the same accuracy with it, but with little less power than apd. (not used to play with lead tape so far )

I string my tflash 310 with x-one biphase 1,24 and i highly recomm. it for the apd users who whants a more solid feel (in some case more direct feel) an a better volley frame with enough power for pace shots.

thx thomas

PS: sorry for my bad english

I echo JJ's recommendation. I've made several posts recently regarding the TFlash 310. My only difference from JJ's experience is that I find the 310 very accurate on serves. Even though my heaviest balls come with the APDC, the 310 is no slouch in the power department. I just ordered 2 more and was told by my local distributor that TF had only 3 of these left before my order. I am sure there are more out there, but since TF is introducing its new stuff right now, supplies are not large. The TFlash 315 VO2 Max will be the replacement for the 310. I like this stick so much, I may pick up another to stash away.

Personally i have not hit w/ the other rackets except the Tflash 310 I WOULD NOT HIGHLY suggest that racket.The T-Flash has to much pop and tends to go out more often.
I personally am more fond of the T-Fight models. If you lean more towards baseline I WOULD USE T-fight models since overall they can be used well at the net or extremely useful for keeping balls in at the baseline.
Also if you like a classic racket feel go for the T-fight 325 instead of any of the t-flash with is a very volley prone racket and feels instable from the baseline. T-fight 320 since tends to add more spin and will often leave flat ball hitters(or those that hit both) with their balls hitting 1- 1 1/2 feet deep. I suggest either T-fight 325 or t-fight 335 if you hit more often from baseline and the T-flash 310 if you come in alot or play quite a bit of doubles.

i own a rds 002 (non tour)
very solid racquet on the groundies, produces lots of spin, great serve, very solid volleys and near perfect control

i put some lead at around 9, 12 and 3 o clock

hope that helps

lolza, can you compare the 002 to any common racquet?
