Yonex racquet specs for Marcelo Rios

Anybody know them? Seemed his strings were strung loose which made his hands appear softer. He used a Yonex RD something. That old racquet had a nice feel to it.

He used a Yonex RD-7 with custom 28" length under various paintjobs. Not sure his racquet specs, but they were fairly heavy but head light. As for strings, he used VS gut (full job) in the prime of his career, and his strings were not loose by any means. The tension varied from 66-70 most of the time, although he did experiment as low as 60 a few times. Of course, higher tensions were common/normal then, especially with gut. By the end of his career, he had gone into the mid-50's and also used a Luxilon/gut hybrid, and even full Luxilon.
