  2. which version are you interested in? 90 or 98" ?

    Did you do a search about this?
    I have reported my results for the 90" in several places as have others. Also check the TW review.

    Volleying is usually going to be no better than the skill of the player. McEnroe could volley with his eyes closed and with a fry pan.
    Technique counts for a lot.
    That being said, using soft strings and the RDS001 mid proved to be great for me on serves and volleys.

    I can't understand why you don't search for information.

    The RDS 001 has been almost OVERdone in terms of discussion around here.

    And TW has a comprehensive review on the racquet as well.

    I thought the 001 was way too stiff, didn't like it on anything really

    did you happen to like the rdx500? because people in generalwho like the rdx500 hate the rds001 and the other way around. personally, i liked both...but i'd prefer the rds001 because it's got a bit more pop

    I ended up not liking it overall, but the MP is excellent for serving. Don't add length to it, you'll just end up with a crappy racquet that hurts your shoulder.
