Which racquet is better overall? I want good control and i wanna be able to bomb it comfortably.

I demoed both and I personally prefer the Dunlop 2006. I can see why some will favor the RDS b/c the Dunlop is so light. I'm also not saying that the RDS is a bad stick, it's just that I seemed to be more in sync with the Dunlop 2006. The 2006 is great for spin, has a some what soft feel (especially compared to the 67 RA # listed on the racquet), and has decent power. However, the 2006 can seem a bit insubstantial b/c of its specs. The RDS seems stiffer and feels as if it brings a little more mass. I'm sticking with the 2006 and experimenting with a touch of lead.

You can't bomb serve with an unleaded 2006. Add a little lead and you'll be fine on serve but that will also take away from some of its maneuvearbilty on ground strokes. I didn't hit many serves with the RDS so I can't comment on its power.
