    Hey TT

    Just looking for some opinions from you 4.0 + players and or Yonex RD 7 Owners out there on what strings i should put into my Yonex RD 7's.

    I usually like to use different poly strings in the mains and gut in the crosses, however with the flex being so low ( Flex = 54 ) not sure if maybe a full poly setup is better. I have been thinking of trying a Solinco Tour Bite / Natural Gut set up. I would like to know the opinions of what you TT Community think the "Ultimate Setup" would be.

    I loved Topsin CyberBlue 17g with Topspin Fibre Touch(low powered multi) 16g crosses in mine.

    If you post this in the Classic Racquets section you may get more responses.

    I have full Solinco TourBite 17g in mine strung at 62 lbs, and it does not suit the frame at all! I liked it so much better with 6 year old multi- which is weird because I usually play with full poly.

    I second this motion. I didn't strictly use TourBite in this frame, but I used a full poly similar to TourBite @56lbs, and I have used TourBite in other frames. Either way, I would like to believe it is a myth that manufacturers make rackets suited to the strings of its era, but in this case I think it's true. Back then polys were not as popular as they are today.

    Something about not only the flexibility of the RD-7, but the way that it flexes, makes a full bed of a stiffer string feel odd. I found I was better off with a very soft poly or a multi @ high tensions. And keep in mind that TourBite is by no means on the upper end of stiffness for a poly. I would recommend Technifibre Biphase @60lbs, Multifeel if you are on a budget.

    I've never been into Multi(or Gut)/Poly hybrids, so I can't comment on how those feel. I don't like mixing materials in hybrids.
