BABOLAT RPM 17G + VS 16G Tennis String
Our staff has not reviewed this product yet.
The newest premium hybrid, Babolat RPM 17 + VS 16 brings the best of both worlds, combining control, spin, feel, and comfort thanks to the combination of two of the most popular string on the market. The RPM Blast 17 is typically used in the mains for its control and spin generation characteristics, while the new VS Touch BT7 provides incredible feel and helps to soften the stringbed. The black colored natural gut features the newest coating technology which increases longevity by 15% and durability up to 25%. This slightly thicker coating helps to slow the fraying process typical of softer strings when used in the crosses with polyester, increasing the overall durability without significantly stiffening the feel. The RPM 17 + VS 16 is similar to what Andy Roddick used at the 2011 Australian Open. In comparison, this one provides more spin and durability with a slightly firmer feel than the popular Pro Hurricane Tour + VS hybrid.
Construction: Co-polyester Monofilament + Multifilament Natural Gut
Gauge: 1.25mm (RPM) + 1.30mm (VS)

This is the best string combination I have ever used. It provides incredible comfort, control and liveliness. I fell I can make the ball do anything and put it anywhere I want it to go with with pace or touch. Thank you for offering this combination. I want more sets.

This is a great hybrid. I dont feel the difference between this hybrid and Pro Hurricane Tour/VS Gut. I like them both. I get great feel as well and good spin.
RPM17G + VS16G String
User: Jim Elgass, IL
I really like these strings, good combination of power and control on my Head Instinct S racquet. I have used for about 1 month, so far have not noticed any durability issues. I am a 4.0 player who plays about 3 times per week.
RPM 17G +VS 16g strings are perfect for my game
User: Venisa Leserra, VA
I had my new Head Speed MP 300 racquet strung with this combination at 55#. RPMs for the mains and the VS for the crosses.The combination of the racquet and these strings are perfect for my game. The strings offer a good combination of top spin, control and just the right amount of power. Ive played with this set for a month, 3 times weekly and they are holding up well so far. I will be restringing my Babolat aeropro team racquet with these as well.
User: Mike Peters, TX
This string is a good balance of strength and spin, while also playing a bit easier on the elbow. Lasts several month for me 3.5 player, using Babolat Pure Storm Tour.
String holds tension
User: Juan paulino, Tx
These strings hold tension very well...a bit expensive, but no bad per performance you get from them
Babalat RPM 17G + VSG Tennis String
User: Ellis Smith, Texas
liked the way the string played but strings broke after a few times playing with them. Dont know if it was a stringing problem or the string itself. However, I am willing to try the string again.
User: LYNN DAGGETT, Illinois`
I have used the hurricane/VS which was fine, but I DECIDED TO Try the RPM and VS, for me I have more power and found I loved it. does not give me as much spin as the hurricane, I like the feel better then the hurricane... It lasts me about 3 months, but I play 5-6 days a week ..
User: frederick padua, tx
great spin with the comfort of gut.
User: Rick Schultz, Minnesota
I love playing with these strings. My only problem is that when I strung the racket, I found a defect in the gut just as I was finishing the mains. I am concerned that the life of the strings will be very short, but the defect is on the last main toward the bottom of the racket - not a place where you hit the ball often. However, I love the combination of power and feel that you get with these strings.
rpm 17g + vs 16g
User: david clowers, north carolina
excellent combination of spin, power and feel. used the blast on the mains at 53 and the gut on the crosses at 55. got about 12 hours out of the blast before it went dead. gut still had some mileage in it. wish that it lasted longer and were cheaper.
User: Nancy Louie, NJ
Love the ease and convenience of combining Rpm Blast and VS Touch together. No longer have to buy 2 sets of strings to get the performance and comfort Im looking for.
Babolat RPM Blast VS hybrid
User: Matthew Tomb, NY
I love everything about these strings!! Durable with tons of pop and great feel. After using these I wouldnt go back to anything else!
Superior spin and feel over Hurricane/VS hybrid
User: Scott, OH
In directly comparing a set of Babolats RPM/VS 17/16 hybrids vs. their Pro Hurricane/VS 17/16 hybrids both strung at 57 lbs on a Pure Drive GT+ racquet I generated much more spin with the RPM set and, particularly on turning the ball cross court, I felt that I had much more control in my ability to turn the ball with the RPM set. There was some difference in the feel of the racquet during ball contact but I didnt notice any great difference in power between the two sets.
