    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.

    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).

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