Yonex RDX 500

Hey,
I'll test this racquet next week and would like to hear your opinions about it. I have been using the RD-Ti 80 before. Thanx in advance. String will be Kirschbaum Competition.

Re: Yonex RDX 500

Meh, I liked the raquet though it wasn't THAT special, at least for me, I liked the RQ-ti 1500 and 2000 more.

I found that it's great for flat strokes with a compact swing, and its also easy to create quite a bit of topspin with it.

Re: Yonex RDX 500

i tested the RDX 500 for about a month before buying it. It's definetly not for everyone but i am very happy with it. It has helped game and give you soem good pop. If ur looking for a comfortable racquet with a flexible frame, then it's definetly for you..

Re: Yonex RDX 500

Yes, I am looking for a racquet which enables great control and also a bit of power which the RD-Ti 80 lacked sometimes. I hope my flat strokes will suit to the racquet becuase I have heard it is great for spins..... I'll see.

Re: Yonex RDX 500

all good raquets..but #1 on my list..$20 Wilson at Wal-Mart...wooks for 2 serves then you can threw it away or restring it.

Re: Yonex RDX 500

I've been testing the racquet for quite some time now. I really like the offensive shots, very much power and a good spin (even for my flat shots, a bit more of control now). Defense was quite rusty at first, but after I got used to it it was quite OK now (although it wasn't as great as with the RD-Ti 80 which is hardly possible though and will improve with the time I guess). Serve was rusty, but this is the shot which naturally needs the longest time to adjust IMO). Volleys were absolutely awesome! I think in a few weeks I will love it.

Re: Yonex RDX 500

I tested it but it was a bit too flexible for me.

Re: Yonex RDX 500

Yep it is a very nice racket, serves are very nice, nice spin and lots of hidden power.

It performs well in all areas but I just had to stick with my SRD Tour 90 which is what Lleyton has under his paintjob. They are similar rackets performance wise but the SRD's are alot cheaper now and the feel is just something I got used to.
