    Could someone please tell me the main differences (besides weight) between the RDS 002 Tour and the RDS 001 MP.

    Thanks

    Takes awhile for somebody to reply. I never tried a Yonex so I don't really know the difference between those 2 racquets.

    I have both racquets+ i now use the 002 tour ul.They are both great racquets, the tour has more power, it also has better comfort.

    Could you point out the strengths and weaknesses for each? Which one is better for baseline play? Also, how is the SW on the tour? Is it tour heavy (the sl version)?

    thanks

    As per my response in your other post, for me, the RDS002 Tour SL is more of an all courters frame and the RDS001mp is more a baseliners stick.

    IMO, the RDS002, swings easier, hits a slightly heavier ball, has slightly more spin and has more flex and feel. With a little lead tape at 10 and 2, the RDS001 plays with a similar heaviness, but with a stiffer feel.

    I demoed the 001 mp but I didn't like how it felt or how it swung.
