Thanks for responding. I will definitely add the leather plus overgrip, the same as my AG200 which by the way is 8pts HL stock vs 5pts HL for the 4D 200 Tour. The relative difference will therefore be the same as moving from one stock racket to another.
With regard to tension drop, I have gone as low as 36 before with some great results but slid back to mid 50s when my game went a bit erratic. Given that I'm used to a tighter string pattern I think I'm going to try full poly at mid 50s and go from there. My main focus is control although I loved the feel of low tensions.
