    I've just bought a Head Flexpoint Radical OS recommended as a wrist /arm friendly racquet.
    What strings/tension would you suggest ?
    String properties required:
    1. Feel and control
    2. More power
    3. wrist /arm friendly
    4. Value for money.
    Thank you

    Do you realise that you've just asked for the Holy Grail? ;)

    A more achieveable setup matching what you're looking for is to do a hybrid of a soft/comfort poly in the mains and multifilament in the crosses.

    The poly will have sufficient stiffness to provide control. Use something like Gosen Polylon SP or Pro Supex Poly Power Soft.

    Multifilament crosses will soften up the stringbed further to provide you with extra comfort and feel.

    String it up in the lower range of the recommended tension for your frame.

    Sorry, but never been a tennis techie!
    After playing for 30+ years now it's time to pay attention to that due to my wrist/arm issue.
