    if what I want is an Yonex RDX 500 Mid with more power?

    I am playing with a RDX 500Mid and like it a lot, but it would be even better if it has a little more power. So is RDS 001Mid my best bet ?

    Yeah the RDS version is very similar with some more power. The thing to be aware of is that the feel is very different. You need to demo first, because the only thing that is really that much different about the RDS is more power in general, and a totally different feel.

    ^ I agree with Noveson with the feel. Will need some getting used to when you switch to the RDS. Also I feel that the RDS is more maneuverable and has better directional control. Volleys are better with the RDS.

    Pffft, like I'd know
    Yup, the RDS 001 Mid is pretty similar to the RDX Mid, but with more power. I agree with Rommil's statements about directional control too. One major thing though is serves, serves are much better with the RDS.
