Is there a way to make these racquets arm friendly since they are rather stiff frames?

there's no way to change a frame's stiffness....you can try using softer strings

Buy the Babolats that have cortex.

Also the APD's are not very stiff at all.

String within the recommended woofer tension range--in the mid 50's works well.

Just finished playtesting the Pure Drive Roddick (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/playtests/tripb07.html) and I played four hours of tennis one night and felt no pain. It was strung with Wilson NXT string at mid tension.

Distilling the above for a generalization, we might say that where your elbow is concerned, if you're going to use a stiff racquet, it had better be a heavier one (though you may then imperil your shoulder).

Okay. Is the Cortex a softer string? When i get the chance i'm going to demo these next.

Lol, Cortex isn't a string. It's one of babolats technologies (gimmick).

You cannot be serious !!!

String at the lower tension range and use soft strings
