dude don't worry about what other people think, just demo the rdx like you want to and if you like it, buy it. If not, just keep demoing until your satisfied with a racquet. everyone is different so they don't know what you like.

OK.

I dont like really stiff racquets like the RDS, so the RDX is pretty much same specs , more flexible.
Lol whatever you do, don't go with the flexpoint..... I bout one and well.... it ruined my game! :D

Wasn't there a thread comparing the RDX to the RDS? I thought most people preffered the RDS 001, but I do like the specs of the RDX. The downside of the RDX might be the serving, in my situation I'm looking for a pretty good serving stick.

yah..... I know the serves seem kinda low. I figure I will justr string it at like 54lbs. and that will put more pop on my serves. They say it has great spin on serves though

Well, the RDX is a little harder to serve with than the RDS, but other than that they are pretty similar IMHO. The RDS is really not that stiff though, its actually kinda flexy. It is stiffer than the RDX, but not by as much as some people would have you believe. The RDS BTW, is a BEAST on serve.

No offense, but I hate the RDs PJ, and love the RDX. I don't really want to paint over it either.

The stiffness is 68 RA on the MP which is stiffer than both the babolats. I will probably just string a little lower on the RDX and get the same effects

I do need a pretty powerful frame because I'm 15, 115lbs, and 5'5''
no you don't unless you aren't that good..I am almost the same age/size/weight as you and I use the babolat pure drive, but string at 72 (really high) and lead it up to decrease power...trust me the middle path is the way to go ... try a pd or a yonex...i've heard good things...also dunlop mfils are supposed to be solid and are very cheap...

even if I don't take a full swing every once and a while, will the ball still stay in play with decent dept, or will it go into the net?
I'm going to play tennis for school in the spring, but I'm afraid that I will be at a disadvantage because most players play with less demanding racquets. ie: radical OS and wilson hammer OS should I opt for aless demanding racquet to stay with the team or should I shoot for a more demanding racquet and hope I can play ok at first to atleast make the middle of the JV team?

yah, it will. The racquets aren't as important as string tension. As long as you have some decent racquet head speed, you can string racquets low and still hit balls deep.

Skraggle, I saw your collection in the Post Your gear thread....you wanna do away with any of your RDX's?

I have an RDX and i love it. The weight is no problem and I dont like heavy frames. I havent noticed really any decrease in serve pace but definately more spin and acuracy. Also the high static weight and huge sweet spot make it pretty good at the net. I am mostly a baseliner too and this racquet is absolutly amazing in this area. no problem with lack of power strung at 60 with nxt tour.

Yep, I agree.
