What are the differences between the two strings performance wise. There both octagonal shape strings, there both poly and they both have good bite when topspinning. I've been told that the babolat rpm loose tension easily? I currently have the technofibre black code but I've never tried the RPM strings yet I wanted to compare and see the difference performance wise... anyone know? if so please reply or give idea's thanks :)

I suggest you try both to get a good idea of the differences.

I'd imagine that Black Code (which is pentagonal, not octagonal) would give you more spin. The less sides to a string (pentagon has five sides), the more spin in my experience. RPM blast looks just like black Pro Hurricane Tour. Black Code bites so much better than PHT, which is 8 sided. Only way to know which one you like better would be to buy both sets.

And I love all of these typing errors when it comes to Tecnifibre... Technifibre and now Technofibre. No offense intended, just thought that it was interesting how often this word was misspelled :)

Can anyone compare it to PHT?

My previous strings were pht and I gotta say the black code does give alot of bite. Grips the ball more when you top spin then the pht of course. also these strings do feel softer then the pht as well.
