At the urging of Mawashi, I'm posting a very short review of the PK Redondo Mid. Mawashi chanced upon a used Redondo a couple of weeks back and very kindly loaned it to me to try. It was strung with a hybrid of Kevlar/Syn Gut at about mid-50 lb tension. I must state that the playtest was done with some weighting at 3, 9 and 12 o'clock positions with a total of about 6g lead (although I would have preferred to try this plain stock actually, but no matter). I think the Redondo Mid is a very underrated stick. The feel was almost as good as my PC600, and the control was excellent. With the extra lead in place, it was very stable and had significant plow-through on all groundies. Slice was not exceptional, but since it has a dense pattern, this would be quite expected. The sweet-spot is rather small though, and one must find consistency and good form in order to get the best "feel" from this frame. Most of all it was very comfortable and despite the stiff Kevlar strings, I experienced no arm pain after my hitting session. I think personally the most important question for me was whether it could ultimately "replace" the PC600. The Redondo is of course no PC600 (the Head has a unique feel which is probably impossible to replicate) but I find that it has its own "unique feel" which (hopefully) for most would be equally as enjoyable as the PC600. With the latter becoming harder to find, and with the Redondo being still in production, I think PC600 users may strongly consider this as a worthy replacement. The other 2 rackets of which I have heard much praise are the MGP Mid and the Donnay Pro One Midplus (TW). I hope to try these two soon in the near future. Thanks for reading.
