    Will bringing the tension down when I string increase feel at the net? I play RPM Blast and string it on the high end (57#).

    Feels great from the baseline, but like a board at the net. Will bringing down the tension to say 50-53# help a little with that?

    (I know changing strings or going hybrid would help and have tried, but RPM is one of the few strings I don't shred through in a week or 2).

    in my opinion it helps. i´ve gone down with the tension and it particularly works in doubles. i usually string with lux adrenaline

    Be even better if you used a multi or syngut as a cross with respect to volleys

    This times 100. IMO to get the best of both worlds without paying for natural gut, hybriding polys or copolys with multis or synguts is the way to go.
