Could someone please tell me the pattern for the mid yonex rds 001 racquet using 2 piece stringing, and where you tie off the knots.


Thanks:)

It's the same as the RDX 500.

Racquet Name Tension Length Pattern Skip M Holes Tie Off M Start C Tie Off C
RDS 001 90 55 - 65 19'M - 17'C 16M X 18C 8T - 8B 7B 8T 6T - 11B

Kevo is correct. btw, w/ yonex frames, you HAVE to use 2 piece stringing. and they also recommend a 5% decrease in tension on the crosses. it softens the stringbed a bit, but i found 5% to be too soft, so im settled on a 2 lb differential if that is of any help.

snoflewis' tension in his signature seems about right.
as noted in another thread, i strung up mine at 62lbs and it played very boardy with a dead upper hoop.
but i restrung it at 59/57lbs and it plays like a dream.

In stock form, I strung it with ti880 @ 60lbs. It was amazing. Then I weighted it up and stupidly strung it with Tonic+16 @ 60\58. Too loose!

Now I'm using 850 @ 63 and it's very nice.

Adely, my 62lbs was with Lux ALU power hybrid.

62 with multi should be a LOT better, but I think I will keep the ALU but string it at 58/56lbs. Used Wilson Reaction as a cross last time... lasted a while, but I might go with someting softer next time too.

im glad your tension finally worked out for you.

i tried sensations at 60lbs...and it felt a bit boardy at first, but it played very similar to the OG micro 58/56 when it lost tension..
