As I understand K90 is a more powerful racquet than RDS001, so should I string the 001 with a lower tension to compensate? If so, how much lower?

Lower tension = more power.

Yonex RDS 001
Stiffness: 65

Wilson K Factor KSix-One Tour 90
Stiffness: 67

The k90 may be a little more powerful, but I bet you won't even notice. I'd recommend the same tension to start out.

I always start out at mid tension and adjust from there on any racket I buy. I believe the RDS is strung from 55-65 and the K90 is 50-60. I would start at 60. When I played the RDS I think I was at 62 on the mains and 60 on the crosses.

Anyone plays with both racquets? What tensions do you have on each?

Ive tried the RDS as a demo, and I currently play with a K90. I used the same tension for both. 52lbs. Not too much of a difference if anything I would lower it by 2 lbs
