    I depends on the string you use.
    - for hybrid it is recommended to strung the poly 5% lower in tension compared to synth/ multi.
    - in general, 002 frame is stiff so you want to keep the tension lower than 60 otherwise the racquet will feel like a brick or too bouncy.

    so far been very pleased with my tension setup; offers crisp feel and great control. Again the hybrid strings (tension and type) complement each other. I tried playing using a single type of string and it felt flat compared to the hybrid.

    yonex rds 002 tour sl
    luxilon alu big banger alu rough 17 gauge mains 62
    klip legend natural gut 16 gauge crosses 62
    original grip thinking about a leather grip but how does that effect the swing weigth and feel?

    I find this frame packs a lot of power and would like to know if anyone has strung one of these at 64 or 65# with any type of string and what the results were?
