I hit with an eastern forehand, usually very close to the top of the net, and i had balls jumping up over shoulder height with this thing - I've never done that before. I don't usually play with a lot of spin so it wasn't as if I was consciously trying to put more work on the ball. It's the only long body I've hit with though so perhaps that had something to do with it.

I put it down because I could never dial in my backhand. Slice backhands were great, but I found I'd often be a little late prepping for a topspin backhand - and eventually I decided to go back to what I'd been using before. I still think about whacking a bit off the bottom though and seeing how it plays at a shorter length. For my money, the RD7 was a better all round performer.
WoW... my thoughts exactly... the RD 70 was a spin and serve demon but the 28 inches didn't click with my one handed backhand... the RD7 is definitely better all-round...

I wouldn't dare to cut my RD 70s...
