    Great review and I agree with most of what you said. I also loved the RDS002 and ended up buying one after many demos.

    What was the difference between the aerogel300 and the rds002. What about the difference in power?

    They feel different in my opinion. I felt the RDS002 was more comfortable, forgiving and had a bigger sweet spot. The Dunlop and the yonex were both nice to serve and to volley with in my opinion. I just preferred the feel of the yonex, my brother liked the dunlop a little better though. As far as power, I would say the dunlop is a little more powerful, but theyre pretty close in power to me to be honest. They have some pop that is useful on bad shots, but they arent pure drives or anything like that. I think you cant go wrong with either, but if I had to suggest a stick it would be the yonex.

    Thanks,
    Another question. Which one is more maneuverable. The big advantage of my m-fil300 is that there's plenty of room to customize it because of the low weight and swingweight. I'm not sure about the rds002 and the aerogel300 in that category.

    I tried the MicroGel Radical Pro and would have to agree with you. The extra spin potential of the Pro made all the difference with my game. I've even ordered the Pro demo again (as well as the KSix-One 95 16x18, Flexpoint Radical Tour, and Babolat Pure AeroStorm) just to get some extra playing time with it.

    I felt the Yonex was more manuverable and swings lighter since it has a lower swingweight and is more headlight. Its not like the Aerogel 300 is not manueverable, I just thought the yonex was more so. I think they would both be good platforms for customization.

    Nice review TripleB! I recall reading your Yonex RQ7 playtest. You are quite a Yonex fan! :)
    Are there any similarities to the frames or are they very different?

    Do you think the microgel rad mp is less powerful than the flexpoint rad mp? I don't know if you have played with both.

    Great review - I guess your favourable review of the 002 is of the lighter version?

    When I read what sort of player you're not in assessing who might benefit from the Radical - I thought that was a great effort in that you could put yourself in another's shoes and conjure who it would be good for. Thank you.

    String the Rad low with poly, add lead, and I think you would find it a very different control stick...

    They both have that solid Yonex feel and the ability to hit a ton of spin, but that's pretty much it. The RQ7 feels more flexy, worse at net, and a lot less maneuverable from all over the court.
