    I would like to know more about the type c redondo. Is it a more head light prestige or what? I need to know because I will get two of those or another pc600 when tw gets them.

    So far for me it is the pc600

    I'm enjoying a Vantage 90 right now; but I am waiting for TW to get the PC600s so I can try one of those - my opinion may soon change. Who knows

    This question makes no sense. It is all personal preference......

    No such thing as the best. You are limiting your options by expecting to find the best. If there is one best frame, then all pros will be using the same frame. You can't pick a racket based on a poll.

    It seems you already tried many rackets, but keep looking & trying/demo until you found one. It took me more than 2 year until I finally find the racket which I feel comfortable for me.

    The 6.0 85 is the only mid-size racquet available.

    All the rest are over-sized.

    It's all personal preference, man.

    And you left out the Volkl Tour 10 VE Mid.

    I know it's personal preference, I put the poll out to see what other people are playing to see if there are some racquets I should consider, or reconsider demoing/playing since I may be changing raquets. You can learn a lot from other players and I value other peoples views.

    Eh, then why put best? Why not put "which do you prefer"?

    I did mean Prostaff, sorry again.
    So far I'll have to demo the Prince Diablo, and the Volkl. I am not that familiar with these raquets but they obviously have a lot of support.
    There are a lot of rdx fans also. Do you guys use lead tape or do you play with them stock.

    You mean "least worse" or something. Where have you been? Haven't you been reading? THEY ALL SUCK!

    Thanks for your support Ripper. Now that I know that all midsize frames suck I'll have to go back to the drawing board. Have you emailed Roger Federer yet, or Marat Safin, or Lleyton Hewitt, or Pete Sampras. They've got it all wrong. I'm running out now to tell all the guys at the college level, and top high school players I know. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  23. I second that. The Prince Diablo Tour Mid is really under-rated imho. An excellent stick for all court and I HAVE TRIED ALL the players' racquets out there.

    Dunno, haven't tried them all.
    Therefore I didn't vote.

    I like the i.Prestige, not the LM Prestige (too high swingweight for me), the nCode 90 was too demanding for me but it'll probably grow on me. Currently using the RDX 500 mid which is awesome.

    Let's face it. If you can not use a midsize frame then you just aren't good enough to play like a real man. Just kidding! I grew up using midsize frames so my preference will always be towards smaller head sizes especially below 93 square inches.

    i said the rdx 500 but having not used many of the others, i'm being very partial. but that's the nature of such a poll i guess...

    i only recently changed from the MP to the mid in the rdx and love it. such a better feel..

    i think the wilson 6.0 is the most revered though to be honest
