Most people don't actually realize this, but the stock PC600 is relatively head-heavy compared to most other traditional stick, not by much, but it's more head-heavy. Sort of like the kPS88 (I hated the balance of kPS8
The Redondo, well that's just pretty. I'd buy it just to hang it on the wall for decoration.
Can't speak on the rest, haven't played with them.
As far as MP playing like mids? There really isn't a lot of them. MP's are MP's, and mids are mids. But if I have to make one recommendation, it'll be the Dunlop 200 series
- ~more or less the feel of a mid
- Margin of errors and forgiveness of a MP
I used the Hotmelt 200g when it came out, LOVED it. I only stopped using it because I discovered the i.Prestige Mid.
