Description

The Babolat RPM Blast 18 offers the greatest spin generation while sacrificing some durability of the RPM line. This string shares the same basic construction and co-polyester composition as the popular Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour, with a few minor tweaks. The RPM Blast stays with the octagonal profile but enhances the spin generation through the use of a new dye and coating. The black color of this string makes it play slightly stiffer than the yellow Pro Hurricane Tour, while the new silicone coating is designed to allow the strings to slide across each other easier. This serves two purposes, the first is that the string can move easily, effectively allowing the stringbed to play as a more open pattern than it is. The second, of course, is to enhance durability by lessening string to string friction. Babolat's RPM Blast is a popular choice among strong baseliners seeking durability and spin to dictate the action.

is a good string, but nothing special, I purchase the 18 gauge expecting a lot of spin, but is very close in performance to the pacific sforce 18 gauge,
