    I currently strung these up with:

    Lux ALU main @ 62lbs
    Wilson Reacton cross @60lbs

    My 1hbh and first serve have decent power, but 2nd serves and my topspin forehands land VERY short. It also feels like a board and is starting to hurt my shoulder. I hate messing with strings and am used to using poly from my MP frames. I also hate restringing often.

    I used to have the Ti-70 88" mid and strung it with Technifibre Biphase 17g and it played AWESOME for 3 hours and then got so loose and was horrible even though it was supposed to be good with tension stability.

    But if there is a really good multi, or you can recommend a "softer poly" like one of the Wilson or Tecnifibre multi/poly strings... let me know.

    Maybe I would like my current setup at 56-58lbs too... dunno.
    Anyway, if you like your setup in your RDS mid... let me know what you use.
    Pretty sweet racquet too... pinpoint control and no dampener needed.

    Well that's because you strung the ALU at 62lbs. That's pretty crazy. Try it at 56lbs. I play with and RDX 500 mid, and I have used lots of strings, but right now I am using Topspin Cyberflash at 59 or 60lbs. It's softer than Alu, but also a crisp poly.
