Been using kevlar/poly for the last 6 years. IMO, racquet weighting is more of a contributor to arm issues than stringbed stiffness.
For 10 years, I played Prince Problend (stiffest type of Kevlar) at 80 lbs in the Wilson Profile 2.7 (84 RA stiffness). It had a SW of 350 and weighed nearly 13 oz. Never had an issue. But I playtested the 2013 Babolat APD in stock form with RPM Blast last week - that hurt my elbow on serves.
BLX Blade 98. 13.58 oz., 12.55", 366 SW. 16x20 (outer mains skipped)
Pre-Stretched Ashaway Kevlar 18g/ZX Monogut Natural 16g, 66/46 lbs
