I'm looking to switch up my racquets as I've grown a little weary of my tour 90's. I've demoed a lot of racquets including the rdx 500 mid, babolat pure storm, the ncoded racquets, tour diablo, and the liquid metal prestige. None of the above racquets really felt right to me, although I did enjoy the buttery feel of the rdx 500, the price tag just isn't feasible for a college student. I'd like a racquet that feels as cleanly moving as my tour 90 does, yet more nimble at net with a little more forgiveness. Reading the reviews that seems to be the 6.0 95 in a nutshell, but I'm interested in getting some feedback from members. Would the 6.0 be a wise choice? I've noticed the dunlop 200g has come down in price, should I give it a try? I'm pretty much tired of demoing and hoping that one of these 2 will be the one.

thanks in advance

Sorry Tennis Warehouse, but I hafta say that RDX500 is constantly around US$130.00-140.00 + S&H (around US$10.00) on ****.

The PS 6.0 95 is less powerful than the Tour 90 but swings much lighter, and thus, much more maneuverable. The feel is a cross between the Tour 90's raw, wood-like, classic sweet feel and the RDX 500's buttery, flexy feel. The PS 6.0 95 also has a very open string pattern which gives the ball a lot of bite and spin, whereas, the 200g has a dense pattern for more control but a boardier feel. Why not demo both the PS 6.0 95 and the 200g and see which one you like better?

the tour 90 is nice but too heavy , if you are strong - keep it.

the yonex rdx mid can be had here used - around $90 for a 9 out of 10 to 8 out of 10 condition.the rdx is too powerful IMO - in stringing 65 and still flies out .

200g drops in power pretty much so you need to pack a wallop on your FULL strokes.....

I used to use a tour 90 - switched to estusa PBP.

Go 6.0 95 and "dial it in" with lead...

yes, i know it may be biased, but my friend used both the original 6.0 85 and 95 growing up and was sponsered by wilson, so obviously its his stick of choice.

he uses the 95 more often, but he gave the tour 90 a try and said that it had no power, it did however have more feel and about the same amount of control.

i myself use the 85 and find it still plays better than the tour 90, i havent had enough time with the 95 to give u a good opinion, but all in all, i dont think the tour 90 was made very well unless ur name is roger federer.

give the ncode 90 a try, i really liked that racquet, more power and forgiving than the tour 90. SWEET stick
