In the commercial coated conductor tapes, the twinned structure of REBCO (REBa$$_{2}$$Cu$$_{3}$$O$$_{7-d}$$, RE = Y and Gd) is characterized as either $$<$$100$$>$$ or $$<$$110$$>$$ orientation based on the tape length direction. In this study, we investigate the effects of the two different twinned structures on the critical current $$I_{rm c}$$ of the REBCO tapes by combining; transport critical current and synchrotron radiation diffraction measurements. For the tapes with $$<$$100$$>$$ oriented twins, we observed the inverted parabolic strain behavior on the uniaxial strain dependence of $$I_{rm c}$$. In contrast, the ones with $$<$$110$$>$$ oriented twins showed a weak strain behavior without any maximum appeared in the strain dependence. Such a different uniaxial strain dependence was analyzed by using the one-dimensional twin model with different fractional lengths of A-domains and B-domains of REBCO twins. This model explains the essential features of the different uniaxial strain dependence we observed.
