    I thought with the discovery of the RDS002 Tour SL, my search for the perfect frame was over but I'm still wondering whether a frame with a slightly lower weight and swingweight of around 325 would serve me better. There's actually very little difference in what I currently use and what I think the perfect frame should be :)confused: ). Frames I consider:

    Babolat Pure Storm
    PK Ki5
    PK Redondo MP
    Wilson nBlade MP
    Dunlop AG200
    Head LM Radical
    Yonex RQ iS 1
    Yonex RDS002 Tour UL

    I've played with every frame on your list except for the RQ IS 1 and IMO the Redondo and the Rds 002 are the best all around frames on that list for playability, control and spin.
    The Pure storm is easily the highest powered.
    The AG200 the lowest powered.
    the RDS 002 tour is an exceptional frame, as is the Redondo Mp.

    RQiS 1 is what you're looking for

    funny how your list is sort of like mine and i'm a rds002 tour SL user
    i played with the rd ti80 Ul and i think, from the spec, it would be similar with the Ul of rds002. I think the Ul is great if u need to get less power

    i might buy the Ul version as a spare when i'm not hitting well with the SL
    and if i want to make the the UL as heavy as SL, i can always lead it up
