RF97A---Best Poly/Tension

Stringing up Cyclone 16. If I normally string BHB7 at 57, should I string Cyclone at that tension as well?

Also, how is the tension maintenance of Cyclone in the heat?

Thanks!!!!!!!!
Regular Cyclone 16 (Anthracite Colour)?

String it at 56lbs to 58lbs both Mains and Crosses on CP Machine. If you are using a Crank LO, double pull every string.

I've used this string in PS97s in temps ranging from 10 Degrees C right upto 40 Degrees C without any significant impact on tension maintenance. Key is to keep the racquets in a thermo protected bag when not in use.

But do note that we restring racquets with fresh Cyclone after max. of 6 hours of hitting so tension maintenance does not figure that much in our equation.
In an RF97A or PS97 you will notice a significant drop in tension in the first 20 minutes of use unless you let the fresh string bed "rest" for 24 hours before play. (That way most of the initial loss will be static tension loss)
 
Hyper G 17 at 50 lbs is excellent in the RF97A.

Hyper G is one of those strings that I find do not have any of its characteristics enhanced by stringing higher; if anything it plays better at low tensions because you keep the spin but get a bit of a buff in power (which Hyper G very much lacks).
Yes, recently tried Hyper-G 16 at 56lbs in a PS97CV. Was nowhere near as good for me as Cyclone 16 at the same tension. Still have a few sets of Hyper-G so will try again at 50lbs and see if that is better. Saying that, Cyclone 16 is a great value for money string for me.
 
Interested in some feedback.

Thinking of stringing the RF97A with a full bed of either: 4G, 4G soft, or alu power rough. What tension? I played the RF97A with a full bed of 4G, and really liked it. I was thinking of stringing one of these strings at say 50, but I want to make sure that I do not lose control. 4G has good tension maintenance. Has anyone tried any of these in the RF97A?

Thanks!
I tried a hybrid a few times, RPM Blast Rough and Babolat Origin, also Champions choice. I’ve settled on a full bed of Alu Power Smooth believe it or not. I don’t know why, but it just feels more suited to the way I play. I don’t need masses of comfort and I generate plenty of my own spin.

That’s cool, what tension you using?

I've been using Champions Choice on my RF97A for years now... after trying Alu Power 125 @ 56
and it's just perfect now... plenty of power and control....
