    I'm seriously considering to buy one of these. Are they completely different? I'm using a prestige lm mid and i'm fine with it but i wanna try a yonex. I'd like to read some considerations on both the midplus and the mid version. So... just go for it. Write your opinion. I have a 2HBH.

    I've never hit with them, but I've read that the MP is quite a bit stiffer than the Mid which is pretty stiff itself. I'm still using my RDX Mid because the stiffness of the RDS 001 doesn't appeal to me. Neither did the color, but the newer paintjobs aren't so bad.

    Strange... so the midplus isn't a significantly easier to use racquet?
    Other opinions?

    Can't demo unfortunately I can only rely on your opinions.

    I didn 't like the prestige microgel midplus (tho i'd probably like the mid) so I hope that rds 001 Midplus doesn't feel like that racquet.

    if you are accustomed to mid sized frame DEFINITELY get the mid. You will find much better spin potential and maneuverability with the rds 001 mid than the LM prestige.
