I own a pair of RDX500MPs and am very happy with them, reason for which I might be getting another pair (before they get discontinued). Never demoed the MP Tour-5, but am very curious about them, because of the very similar specs. to the RDX500MP and because of the great price they are selling for, at this moment. I'm wondering if the MP Tour-5 plays similar to the RDX500MP. The thing that makes me doubt is the way the RDX500MP is designed to flex at the throat. Not sure if the MP Tour-5 flexes in the same way. So, those of you who have experimented both... ... do they play similar? ... and do they flex in a similar way? Guess if you answer "no" to one of these questions, it should be "no" for the other one, too (and vice versa). Note that I'm not asking which one plays better than the other, because I know that's, pretty much, a subjective opinion.
