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
Color: Black
Gauge: 1.25mm (RPM) + 1.30mm (VS)
