    This is a racquet/string question so I have it under both.

    Bab Aero GT with RPM Blast at 55lbs is AWESOME, I mean really a step above. the Blast died in a week, so I used NXT Tour at 55lbs and it's awful.

    Any suggestions on something that will last longer? I was thinking full Gut at 60lbs.

    Thanks.

    I've tried Focus Hex, Cyclone 18, and Tour Bite Soft 17 so far. Focus Hex is probably the stiffest, Tour Bite felt a bit weird but I strung it too high, and right now I have it Cyclone at 54. Feels pretty good and cyclone supposedly lasts quite a bit longer than RPM.

    What did you not like about NXT tour? I have used it once at 52pds and it had no spin at all, just a launcher.

    Yea that's kind of it, the NXT is more power and less control. I don't mind power, but with RPM Blast you can just kill it and it's controlled power, I mean I'm really impressed.

    If you choose Full Gut just stay away from Bab VS with BT7, it worse than a 5 dollar syn gut. You probably read that most people detest it.
