    Hi guys, which version of the rdx 500 would you suggest to a mainly baseline player with a big flat serve. However, I'm trying to work on my kick serve. I cant demo the racquet but I hope I recieve some feedback and will incorporate them into my final decision.

    THanks

    Mid Plus. Bigger groundies, better kick on 2nd serve.

    If weight isn't a problem for you and you have good footwork, I suggest you the Mid version: it offers more solidity/stability, maneuvrability and control, still mantaining the others qualities of Rdx Serie (Sweetness and Spin ability)

    the midsize will actually take a bit off that big flat serve of his since the racket is incredibly powerless....

    to the OP, have you considered the rds001? i think the midsize would be more suitable compared to the rdx500

    weight RDX500 up... its awsome...

    also i recomend the mid unless you need / want extra spin

    midplus gives heaps of spin in comparison

    if you're a clean ball striker, i'd go w/ the mid. if you want a more foregiving stringbed, then the mp. what racquet are you playing with now?

    I used the RDX500 Mid for 6 months but had to find something else because I couldn't control the big flat serves. I tried some stiffer racquets and found the control I was looker fer.
