    Hey guys, I just bought and played my blade for 2 weeks with 2 kinds of setup.
    1. Full RPM with 50lbs (Too stiff)
    2. Alu power rough + Babolat xcel 47/45lbs (Feels much better but die out very quickly.)

    I am looking for both spin and arm-friendly string setups. Please give me some ideal option of choice. Thx

    I like MSV Hex on the mains with OG Micro Sheep on the crosses.

    Honestly i liked technifibre pro red code 17 at 46 pounds. Felt nice and had good spin. You could use black code too. Both at solid strings at reasonable prices. Good luck finding a good string.

    I am actually about to go with this setup (MSV Hex 17L 1.18/OG MIcro Sheep 18g). What tension do you use? Any useful comments for me are appreciated. Thanks!

    Hex has bad tens. loss tens. stability problems, even the 1.28mm. To combat this, string the jaycee method, that is, string the mains at 56, except the outer two on each side, go up to 64lbs. Crosses, string at 60, except the final three, and then up to 64lbs. After stringing the mains, push down from the knots, all the way to the center of the job from each side, before stringing the crosses. This will even out the bed, and eliminate most of the tens. loss.
