    Hi everyone,

    I currently play with Yonex RDS001, but i used to play with RDX500, and i really loved its soft feel. Nowadays i just have one RDX500 and I need at least a pair of racquets.

    What current racquets could replace RDX500?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Do you use a mid or midplu? The ig radical pro customized may be close. Can't think of a wilson or babolat that can replicate teh rdx 500's feel. The newer yonex racquets should be demoed as well (vcore 98, 95)

    EZONE Xi 98 might be more plus. But, I find that the RQiS 1 Tour is the most reminiscent of the RDX 500 in the "current" line of racquets (even though the RQiS 1 Tour is discontinued). EZONE Xi 98 might be the next closest one.

    Go to www.rakuten.co.jp, choose English and search for Yonex rdx500. There are always a few of these for sale in good nick at reasonable prices. They also weigh each frame so you can look for a matching pair.

    Why switch if you love your old racquets? You could collect a bunch of these for the price of two new sticks...

    If you look for a soft feel then go for the vantage bc20. An improved version of the rdx500.
