    In no particular order:

    Head PC600 / Prestige range
    PK Redondo,
    Dunlop 200 / 300 range,
    Volkl 10 range,
    Wilson nCode Tour 90 / ROK (if you can find)

    Others will chime in, I'm sure.

    does the redondo feel most buttery out of all these?

    I don't really know what's "buttery", but I'd say the Redondo feels pretty "raw", but soft-playing, nothing jarring about it. You can "feel" your shots.

    OK, if "buttery" means "easy like a hot knife cutting through butter", I'd say the Redondo may be like "a warm knife cutting through soft cheese". You get that feed-back feel.

    BTW, how does Redondo compares to LM Prestige or PC 600? I never played with it but very curious. I like that stiffness of 56 and the tight string pattern. Any1?

    No idea against the LM, but I have the PC600.

    The PK Red plays easier than the PC, less powerful, has precision to counter that lower power. But don't let the term "less powerful" make you thing that it's got no power; instead it has good controllable power for precision. Rewards old schoolers well.

    To be honest thos terms are so subjective and so general its impossible to give a correct answer. What do you play like?
