thanks for the reply McLovin,
i've looked on the racquet finder and have played with a few of the ones on the list and they just don't feel anything like my rdx 500.
In fact, I took almost the exact specs from the rdx and plugged them into the finder and the only racquet that came up was the donnay x dual gold 99. Which felt nothing like the yonex when i demoed it.
was hoping someone who has played with the rdx 500 mp and some other yonex sticks could help me pick one that FEELS like my rdx, not just has the same specs. I like yonex and think they make a quality product and look great, and are a little different than the APD's i'm surrounded by
