The Babolat RPM Blast 17 offers greater spin generation at the expense of some durability compared to the thicker 16 gauge version. This string shares the same basic construction and co-polyester composition as the popularBabolat Pro Hurricane Tour, with a few minor tweaks. TheRPM 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.
Construction: Extruded co-polyester monofilament
Please note all sets of string will be measured up and cut from the reel. It helps us afford our free postage deal and the lack of plastic and paper will make you feel all warm and fuzzy knowing that no trees, dolphins or kittens were harmed in the process. Win win.
