    Please help me decide between one of these two "classics". I can get my hands on a new RD-7 but I'm not sure what to do.

    these are two pretty different racquets, the POG mid is fairly stiff, and more suited to an all around play, maneuverability is high, cuts through the air like a 'knife' where i would say the RD-7 is more like a 'club', but it's a great baseliner's racquet, it's flexy at the right points, and digs into the ball for some pretty amazing spin.
    I guess you should choose based on your playing style. Do you have very long stroke? Or do you have a bit of wrist if you don't have time to set up? The RD-7 requires good preparation since it's so heavy, but it's a great baseliner's racquet, a little clumsy at the net IMO. The graphite mid is pretty goo dfrom the baseline, you might want to add a little weight ot it's head to get a more balanced baseliner suited effect, since it's very whippy and suited for net play as well as whatever you may want to do with it.

    Christo. Don't know what you are prepared to pay. Send me a mail to
    gnsmouse@yahoo.com and I'll let you know where to get a brand new one.
