    I've heard that Rpm Blast is Pro Hurricane in black. Is this true? Is there any difference between the the three. If so, by how much?

    I'd also want to know the answer to this.

    I've heard that it's not.
    I'm not 100% sure though.

    But I do know Rafa received his supposed "RPM Blast" in Pro Hurricane form with just black paint on it for the first few months of its release.
    It was named Pro Hurricane Nadal or something.

    Babolat RPM Blast is not pro hurricane tour in black. RPM Blast has a black silicone coat which makes it snap back into position for spin. When i tried RPM Blast i got more spin than the pro hurricane tour, thats basically the only differential for me their pretty similar but for me id go with the blast.

    And for the Rafa question i think he did use pro hurricane colored in black but for only a short while. He now is using Babolat RPM Blast 15g 1.35mm at 55lbs

    Any differences in stiffness, durability, playability or tension maintenance?

    From what I have heard the RPM Blast is the same as Pro Hurricane Tour, except for the black coating on the string. This isn't to be confused with being the same string, but only a different color though. The coating make the string slicker for better snapback. Rafa does use RPM blast, I know this for sure!

    In my personal opinion, I found the Pro Hurricane Tour to have a better feel to it. Makes no sense unless the coating is giving me a harsh response? Regardless, I like PHT a little bit better than RPM Blast.

    For me, PHT is softer with better feel and a little more pop. RPM Blast has more spin, goes "dead" faster, and may have slightly better control due to stiffness/spin.
