    I own 2 of these. They play pretty good stock but i added 2 grams to 10 and 2 O'clock 2 grams to 3 and 9 O'clock and 10 grams under the grip. After adding all this lead tape it plays a whole lot more solid, but it's a little less maneuverable. Since I play the baseline 9 out of 10 points its fine by me. You should demo it first though. Its gotten mixed reviews.

    I hit with it and thought it was a very nice frame, people have bashed it for the air handle & feeling harsh. I thought it played lighter than its weight had good controllable pop and felt pretty good.

    I ended up buying the fischer pro tour ft--similiar specs, but it played better.
    demo the fischer as well

    So I guess it's similar to the RDX500 MP. Light, spin friendly, but lacks pop.

    I bought two w/o demoing, went out and hit once, hated it, added two layers of 6" lead tape around 10 and 2, and loved it. It really amazes me how much of a difference that rather small amount of weight made. It became much more solid, stable, better power, better spin, more drive. It became an awesome racket, really.
