    Have hit with both but am curious if anyones else has or suggestions. Have klip legend in prostaff 95 tour at 58 lbs, seems like not alot of power, yonex meanwhile seems ok but very stiff strung mid plus 2 with wilson sensation- led to arm problem after two days- racquet or strings?, any suggestions on what to string the prostaff at to offer more power without sacrificing control...? would be welcomed...thanks

    I've tried both. I'm probably in the minority, but I would pick the Tour 95 over the RDS. The RDS was jsut too stiff for my liking and I didn't serve very well with it.

    IMO, that Tour 95 needs to be strung below 55# with some type of soft string. The review of the frame even found that it was better at the lower tension.

    I don't know about 51 but I agree that the PS Tour 95 plays better with a mid 50's string tension. It is lighter than your "typical" players Wilson racquets. I did use a hybrid on it, poly mail/multi cross, and it played really nice.
