    on a rqis 1 tour. Yonex recommends 5% tighter for mains, but for poly you want to string it looser to match the liveliness of multis on the crosses. so if I string the x1 biphase crosses at 55lbs, how much for the mains?

    thanks

    X-1 is really soft so tighten it above your standard tension by 2 lbs or so.

    I hope the Yonexmeisters will chime in here. I find that Yonex Isometric head racquets are a string-tension world all unto themselves. (They seem to throw a wrench into the 5-10% lower concept for polys.)

    My hitting partner has an RDS 001MP, and in a year, we've never found the right tension.
