    I'm wondering if some of you have experienced low tension in full poly setup for this racket and how low did you go? I'm particularly interested in feedback from those using tension range 30-40lb. I have some Cyclone 18, cyclone tour 18 and Kirschbaum 17 evo to try.

    mid stiff slick round copolys (n gut or a mono core syc gut in the crosses - for pop and comfort) 40 -50 for me, 30's are too spraying (for me).

    I didn't go for 30's but my RF97 is in the 30's after initial tension drop of some Hyper G.. I'd rather be mid 40's, it's still somewhat playable but it's finicky on high punched volley's around eye level, probably an adjustment but the launch angles increased for me so as I move into the court I feel I fly long if I don't be cautious on angle. I guess that's pocketing.. but with that much plow I've let off the gas completely with lower tensions. I could imagine regular Cyclone 18g mid-upper 40's being awesome, but I'm weird and like strings as they die usually.
