Popularized in the early 2000’s by Andy Roddick and Babolat’s top pros, Pro Hurricane is one of their earliest entries in the co-polyester family. Xtreme Futur Polymer was added during the manufacturing process to soften the response. Pro Hurricane is a throw-back of sorts and doesn’t play as stiff as RPM Blast, or RPM Blast Rough. The round co-polyester offers a good amount of pop and stronger durability than synthetic gut or multi-filament strings.
Construction: Extruded polyester monofilament
Gauge: 16 g / 1.30 mm
Length: 40 ft / 12.2 m
-Softer than the average polyester
-Xtreme Futur Polymer makes the string more comfortable

Pro Hurricane Strings
These strings give you very good control and help you get the spin you want. They give you a very solid feel and I would recommend these strings to any tennis player.
Pro Hurricane Strings

Very Surprised 4.0 Player
I bought these strings for more durability during the winter months in Albuquerque because I was breaking too many, and what I got was maybe the best strings I have bought so far. These strings have wowed me I can definitely hit with all the power I want and have tremendous control. Not only that, I was very surprised at how much feel I still have. I am playing the best tennis I have played in a long time due to my better physical conditioning, and these strings. I rarely hit a ball out any more - it's crazy, but I may have found my new favorite strings by accident really.
The softer feel of this string is a real plus. I appreciate the tension holding up longer than my other string and will probably us it again, though I might up the tension a notch next time.
Strung with Aeropro GT
I had these strings on a Babolat Aeropro Drive GT. Unfortunately I strung it at 60 tension and with the racquets stiff feel, the strings were really hard to play with. Not sure if Id get this string again. Might have to try a thinner gauge and definitely lower tension.
I cannot really determine if its the string or is the frame, but I had these strings on my new Pure Storm racquet and the result has been amazing. My game has improved about 50% with the new racquet and these strings.
Very durable/strong with good pop, but still delivers smooth/soft contact & control. I use this for two of my racquets and the string seems to have more elasticity than average. I swing harder than average and dont see much string notching. So far, very impressed with this string.
Love my new strings
I have used these strings on my racket for several months. Love the feel and touch. Will definitely buy them again
I am highly pleased with the performance of the Babolat Pro Hurricane strings that I use for my racquets.
Furthermore, I am more pleased than ever with the customer service that you give all the time.
Keep up the great work!
good beginning string
i got these strings free with my purchase of a new Babolat Pro Storm racket.
With the new racket, I am still trying to figure out the string set up i would like. That said, for a freebie out of the gate, these seem like decent strings. my only knock is they feel a little dead sometimes.
Decent choice to get you off the ground for sure.

For me is excelent, best than rpm blast. More confortable, more powerful and durable.
Played Prince Synthetic Gut for maybe 20 years and was looking for better performance. Was breaking strings about every 6 weeks. Double faulted maybe once a game. Hit too many shots long.
Web research showed for me that Babolat Pro Hurricane 16g would provide higher spin and last longer. My only concern was tennis elbow for this stiffer string.
Babolat Pro Hurricane 16g is an exceptional string. Double faults are down to 1 per set. Shots are dropping in with power and spin. My first string set has lasted 3 months with no sign of breakage. Elbow is not a problem. I feel like my game has improved one USTA level 4.0 to 4.5. Only downside is less touch at net.
Pro Hurricane Strings
The strings were very good, if you are one for control and not too much power than GET THESE! They are good for control and spin mainly. The customer service was great, I got it overnighted and I got it literally the next day. So dont go to any other stores, BUY FROM HERE!
My favorite strings ... They are comfortable and last for a while :
I really like the feel of these strings. I play daily so they dont last as long as some other strings but they feel much better than other strings I have used.
best price, fast shipment and good quality ... been doing business for the past 2 years
PRO HURRICANE NATUAL 16G
One of my favorite strings. Give good power, but has great feel. Lasts longer than RPM blast. Great for hybrid stringing.
I have tried so many different strings, but I always come back to this string. Not only is it cheap, but it is also very durable. If you have used PHT, this string feels softer to the touch, and feels more responsive. I have a 2010 Aeropro and string it full bed around 56lbs. It is a stiffer string, but if you can live with that, they will last. I also feel tension retention to be above average. It seems to take longer for these strings than most other polys to move and by then they need changing out or are about to break anyway. I would say these strings are low-med power and at the same time provide decent access to spin. If I had someone stringing 5 racquets with whatever strings I wanted for free, I would change my mind, of course, but for the value these have proven the best balance of control, spin, durability and power to suit my needs.
great price delivered on time . good job
New Powerful String
Powerful, easy control, highly recommanded!
A Rare String Find
I recently read that polymer strings tend to give the hard hitter an edge by gripping the ball to provide more RPMs. All I can say is AWESOME! Down the line or cross court shots that used to be a foot or more out are landing in after replacing my synthetic things with this one. My opponents at the club that usually win in a certain rotating partner situation commented Sunday that they couldnt wait to rematch as my partner and I won after losing for months. Whether just a physiological boost or for real thing, these strings are either my lucky charm or are providing that extra edge to have my shots land inside or on the lines!!!
