    After cracking one of my 300Gs, I'm need to buy new sticks.
    I'm run it down to two racquets. the n6.1 95 and rdx 500 mp.
    I like the rdx500, but the 6.1 feels nice, although a little harder to serve with.

    Any opinions on the sticks?

    Your claim that the n6.1 95 feels harder to serve with is crazy. Unless you cant handle the little extra weight that it provides. I think it feels great when serving. N6.1 95 has alot more pop and more spin. Better all around stick if you like to pound groundstrokes.

    6.1 95 too heavy for me

    I agree. The nCode 6.1 95 is too heavy for me. I used to be able to pound groundstrokes and serve, but found this stick really wore down my arm. It did feel good on some shots (very nice on volleys), but in a three set match my arm felt dead and the racket speed slowed down. I'm going back to a lighter racket. Should be receiving the new nBlade tomorrow. An ounce lighter and a little less head light.

    Hmm maybe you should try a radical? Yeah the n6.1 95 is pretty hefty you have to be pretty fit to wield it effectively

    n6.1 95 is amazing with the serves...lots of pop and spin...weight is just about right. I highly recommend this stick rather than lm radical. with the 16x18 pattern, spin potential is a lot compared to PS 85 and PS 95. Anyway, demo first see if you like it.

    I served 3 aces in a row last night while subbing for a friend who couldn't make his 4.5 league. This was with an RDX 500 mid. I think I could had 4 in a row if I hadn't started thinking about it right before I hit the fourth one.

    ....?

    Nobody ever said you cant serve well with a RDX mid. It is more challenging with one compared to a n6.1 though. The n6.1 provides more pop and spin which can be helpful when serving for most people. Im guessing you must have pretty good technique then.

    GUESS WHAT! A couple of days ago I served out a whole game on first serves with my n6.1 95! SO HA!

    Yes, n6.1 is a great serving stick! It's all-around the best one for me so far, anyway. And of course, you can serve aces with just about any stick...

    OP asked for taking sides between two racquets, so we're doing just that.

    My vote goes for the n6.1 as well. But I recommend you give a try to 18x20 version. Search this forum and look for posts by tarkowski - in my view they're spot on!

    I didn't make any such insinuation. There were two frames being compared and serving was brought up as an issue, so I simply shared my recent experience on serves with one of the frames.

    RDX 500 all the way...if u have the power and are looking for control like me...but at the same time, have a look at the newer model Yonex sticks, like the RDS 001
