    Did a search but didn't come up with much. Has anyone tried both and can give some comparisons?

    I have tried both and as you can see from my sig I prefer the type R.
    I would like to try the Type C MP (non redondo) as it has kevlar like the type R.
    The type R is as low powered as the redondo but feels crisper dispite being as flexy. They are both very comfortable. The redondo is more HL but also a little heavier. They feel about the same in maneuverability. The type R is more stable IMO and I feel it has better control also. It also has maybe the biggest sweetspot of any 100 sq in racquet I have tried.
    The downside with the type R is that it seems the pallet has a tendency to come loose a little. I dont know why this is as it has never happened to me on any other frame but I have had to re-glue the pallet on 3 of my type R's.
    The redondo is a much better looking racquet than the type R IMO (I think most would agree).
