What's a good arm friendly string for a Dunlop 500 Tour frame?
 
I'm trying Technifibre NRG2. I strung it at 60lbs in my Dunlop Aerogel 4D 500 Tour. Its just okay for me. Maybe I should have strung at 55lb-58lbs. What are some other suggestions for string? I like good spin and pop. I have been using poly the last few years and have developed tennis elbow. I just can't do poly anymore.

Any string you like strung at around 50 lbs or less. No matter how you swing.
IF you want your elbow, wrist, and shoulder to love you.

Yeah I usually do string poly 50lbs or lower but I tried the multi at a higher tension fearing the racquet would be like a cannon if strung lower. I liked NRG2 in a hybrid. It's probably a tension issue as you say.

I use the same racquet... I use Lux alu rough with Wilson NXT at 56ish. I like the NXT and it seems easy on the arm. Doesn't last too long, though.

I'm a syn. gut user, but I've recently strung a few folks up with Head RIP Control and that multi has impressed me with its performance, cozy factor, and durability (I'm stocking up on some more).

I've also used some of Tecnifibre's X-1 Biphase in the past and that stuff was very nice in a rather flexible frame. That NRG2 has a solid reputation, but if that's your first sampling with it in your Dunlop, you may need to try a different tension to get an idea of your best tension with it.

Thanks for the response. Going to try that Head Rip Control.
