    Nope, the only difference is the paint. The specs are the same.

    due to the different grommets, they play different.

    have you played with both? I have only hit with the old rds 001 mid and have the new one coming in to demo.

    How did they compare? (comfort, feel, stability etc)

    Wrong... they added soft grommets... but I have 2 of each and can say they have absolutely no effect. Frames are the same, but the new paint job is much better.

    so they feel identical?

    and yes.. the new PJ is one of my favorite of all time. Demo comes this week.

    I have decided against the k90.... time to try out the rds again

    I have and I liked my older one much more stability, power, control, spin, etc. is the same but the newer one has (in my experiance) slightly less feel and comfort, but the big thing I noticed was the sp was a little higher on the face, which is good if u hit the ball higher on the string bed, I do not so this was a major prob. for me.

    If you want the characteristics of the new model and have the old rds001 just buy some grommets for the new one and put them in th old.

    Damn good thought. But really, I have noticed almost 0 difference between the 2. Only place where I have noticed a difference is on the throat bridge grommets where they extend up the mains about 3/4 of an inch and act as a vibration dampener.

    Funny... I've parked my 001's in favor of my K90's - absolutely the best off ground strokes and at the net, but I still have difficulty with pace on serves - therefore, I tend to go back to my 001's... great sticks, very close to the K90 but the lower swing weight gives you [me] more serve potential while retaining great control and pace off the ground and at the net.

    In fact, believe I'll resurrect the 001's this weekend :):):)
