    I hit 47 backhand winners today with it within my hour and half playing session. Eventually, I would run around my forehand, just to see a backhand woosh across the net.


    I'll give a full review by tomorrow : )

    The mid is a sweet racket for every shot! Look forward to your review.

    I totally agree. In fact, I mentioned how great the RDS 001 Mid is for 1HBH's in my comparative review for TW. Here's a quote:

    "One thing I particularly noticed is that I was able to hit laser-like one-handed backhands down-the-line that stayed parallel to the sideline throughout its trajectory."

    It was amazing how many winners I was hitting with my one-handed backhand with this racquet during my playtest, especially down the line passing shots. :D
