    I tried all of them, hell i got all of them. i dont like the rdx-500 midplus because its too heavy and kind of stiff, but thats me. and the rdx-300 has my vote. I am still testing em out.

    bendover, did you play with other yonex before. I'm playing with the MP2i and is now stuck between choosing the rdx-300mp (similar weight, but smaller head size) and the rdx-300sm (similar headsize, but lighter)

    Hope you can give me some more info to make my decision.

    Bendover...RDX500 too stiff as compared to the RDX300?? The 500 rates as the more flexible racquet between the two...are TW's RDC ratings off?

    Thanks!

    Our ratings are accurate, as measured on 2 sets of sample racquets. It's logical that the RX 300 has a stiffer frame flex (67) than the RDX 500 (60-62). Don/Tennis Warehouse

    Nope, i only used the Rd serieds and the ultimum. Still testing the rdx series, so far it feels great but i'd still prefer the rdx-300. I've always used MP and never trouched OS or MS.
