    Recently i made a thread on how i had interest in the yonex rdis 100 mid, but ive also read some reviews on the pb10 midplus and i just wanted to know some of the comparisons between them in terms of which one has better control on groundstrokes, and how they perform on serves and volleys.

    I spent a little time with the Volkl as a demo. Definitely a control oriented, low powered frame. I found it to be good for all the characteristics you mention, but all its qualities paled in camparison to its big brother the PB 10 Mid. I'm not sure you what you are looking for in a new racquet, but if you value a softer hit with lots of feedback perhaps you should give the Mid a try also.

    Just switched to the PB10 MP from the PDRGT due to the beginnings of some elbow issues. Does everything better that that racquet other than serve... After going back and playing the PDR, it was like swinging a log.

    I also demoed the Organix 325, PB10 Mid, PSTGT and Becker Melbourne. For my game right now, the PB10 MidPlus was the clear winner. I could see myself switching over to the smaller mid in a year or two, but as a 4.5 just coming back to the game after 10 years, I could tell it was gonna be a frustrating experience.

    Even though it is a bit less maneuverable than it's smaller brother, I still find it to be pretty scalpel like and a great players frame. I personally won't touch the Mid until I'm playing solid 5.0 tennis again....

    I've had sticks..(actually the BB11 was one,...) that didnt feel good at all initially,....i moved on to other sticks,...then mos later came back,..and that was when i just came to love it!!!!!...(..its a kind of 'love story,...)...seriously,...i thought the tension might have just dropped to a better level,....

    well, what would you like to know? The feel is Volkl amazing. I am kind of disappointed because it doesnt seem as soft as the mid, which was what i was looking for, but still good. The 19mm beam is sweet, of course. the main downside i would say is the 18x20 pattern, but that may be because since the Prestige I have switched to 16x19 so now i have to get used to the dense strings again. It swings light enough so need to go to the gym. Very stable. I am liking it, but I may go back to the Rdis200. right now it's up in the air; I am deciding these 2 frames. when you hit on time the plow through is good. on mishits though you feel it right away. keep your eye on the ball!

    Thanks Zapvor, I ordered one based on the specs (and my age) but have not had the chance to hit with it.
