    Hi, my 6.0 95 got some crack on the top. thinking of getting a new racket.

    any comments on these 2 rackets?

    Head grip shape is a concern to me, and its closed string pattern. both are new to me.

    SOrry i can't find MG Prestige pro in my place.

    too bad! was gonna suggest you get the Prestige Pro, since it would play closer to your 6.0 95 with a little added pop

    I only used the RDS. It's a stiff-ish racket but not uncomfortably so (at least for me in the few hours I've used it...never had it as "main racket").
    It has very good spin potential, good control, pretty nice "crisp" feel. Swings very easy for this racket category (slightly easier than the MSpeed Pro 1 in my experience...which is also a very "nimble" racket).

    Power is average to low...I actually expected more power given the stiffness...but in my experience it doesn't provide significantly more power than the MSpeed even though it's much stiffer and the other specs are similar...go figure.

    although i use 6.0 95, it has been heavily modified with lead tapes. so it is not the stock playability any more. the stock racket is too weak at handing heavy shots.

    any more opinion on these 2 rackets?
