I play full poly with the Redondo mid and it still feels very comfortable to me.

Last week I played a match with 5-6 grams of lead at 12. I served better than my previous match and the feel also improved. I only lost the match so I was a bit disappointed but it wasn't due to the Redondo. We started our match outdoors and I was leading with 4-0 until the lights went off by accident. Then we had to finish the match indoors but I didn't have my indoor shoes so I was a little afraid to run fast.
