But even then I don't think there is an answer for you. I'm not even sure whether the frame stiffness or the stringbed stiffness is a bigger factor in the "total" stiffness of the racquet/string system.

But here's a question for you that might lead somewhere: What quality of the 70RDC frame are you trying to reproduce in the 63RDC frame?
Nice post corners, as usual. I have a related question if the OP doesn't mind: If you string at very low tensions (e.g. poly in high 30s), would that to some extent mask the flex of the racket, i.e. would it make a stiffer and a flexier frame feel more similar than strung at high tensions?
