theres really no agreed answer to any threads about this
people say black duralast, black pht, blackcode, and rpm mains w/ to-be-released black vs touch in the crosses
so what is it?

But seriously before making a thread, search for related topics.
This has been discussed milions of times.
And if those dont come to a conclusion what makes you think this one will?

DONT SEARCH!! Lets just have another interesting thread instead. Imagine how boring life would be if there was only one thread about each subject;0) Anyone know anything new? i know there was some debate as to if his string was really RPM Blast or a different string specially made for him.....

I have some in one of my racquets which came from his reel when at Queens, it's printed Babolat RPM Blast 15L and feels a little different from the retail RPM, but that may just be because of the guage difference.

When they were in the process of developing RPM Blast, Babolat created a number of different prototype versions. Nadal is using one of them, the question is just which one, and how you would describe/identify it if you knew. During the development process, they were deciding whether to market it as an offshoot of PHT or as an entirely new string, which is why some early versions were identified/marked as PHT black.

There are several things that Nadal's string is NOT. It is not simply black Duralast, as it has a different shape, texture and properties, as described by numerous stringers who have handled. it. It is absolutely not Black Code, and I won't bother explaining why. And he definitely doesn't use any form of VS Touch...his strings are full poly.

...No. You can't submit a post unless the post has at least 10 characters in it. "Search." Comes out to 7 characters, so you say 10char to get the rest of them.

you are wrong bud.

he uses skinfeel (or syntec) replacement grip with VS overgrip

trust me on this ^^

i think he uses skinfeel because he still want that tinny feeling of handle like ping pong paddle.

syntec is too much for him

and i saw him at Toronto 2010 rogers. saw him changing his grip, he had black replacement grip on it.

and for string. its not definitely black duralast although he used for loooong time.

i think its just black hpt.

hahah mate.. your wrong or you might right

but you can NOT believe even sticker says RPM

because last time when he used duralast and babolat says he uses PHT

but still the string was tour duralast and the sticker was PHT

so your wrong. but you could be right if he uses RPM

but i believe its black PHT. because i saw the string picture it say PHT with black.

search on fedfab
