Could anyone name some racquets that are really similar to the RDX500 MP but that are a lot cheaper? Thanks for your help.

I was gonna say the MPTour-1, which the RDX500 was meant to replace, but it's still really expensive for an older model. I would go for other brands, maybe Wilson, Prince, Dunlop, or Head - all their previous season players' frames are dirt cheap now. (Wilson Tour95, HTour, 200G, TTWarrior, i.Radical)

The Prince Diablo MP is very similar to the RDX 500 MP with lot better feel. You can catch the used one on **** for $70 each sometimes. Both sticks are very close in weight, headsize, beam width and stiffness. The Diablo is slightly better with more power and feel. Both sticks are good rallying sticks but lack the stiffness to put away shots in real games. The RDX 500 is overrated while the Diablo is quite underated and less known.

I find it odd that you think the RDX 500 doesn't have the stiffness to put away shots in a real game. I would just say that I hit a lot of winners with the RDX 500. Some from several feet behind the baseline. I hit quite a few long as well, so I think it's more a matter of how it's strung and your style of play. I've never played with a Diablo, but I have heard many people say it's a good racquet, and I would tend to believe that also.

Where are you guys finding these used RDXs at, the only ones that I have found have been like $120+. And thanks everyone for your suggestions.

Different tennis racquets get listed on **** every day. I bought two slightly used RDX 500 MPs on **** this month for $196 total, and then bought a new one from a reputable tennis racquet seller this week for $91 - no kidding. So I now have three of these bad boys and I bought them for less than the price of two new ones.
My advice would be to check often and bid smart.
