    It seems you three have played a lot with Volkl Cyclone and Babolat RPM Blast. Lots of information on how these two strings compare. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a comparison of these strings in 18g. I found this to be very strange. Most threads comparing these two strings seem to have at least two or three posts claiming that these strings are best in 18g.

    I've tried RPM Blast in 17g and Volkl Cyclone in 16g. I'm not sure if the 18g will be a substantial difference. According to a lot of posters, it seems like the difference between gauges are more noticeable between these strings. Do you find this to be true?

    How do these two strings compare in 18g?

    Thanks in advance! I love the playtest reviews!

    I've hit Cyclone mostly in 16g, although I did try the 18g when it came out. I hit the 18g in a Prestige Pro 600 and remember I really enjoyed it -- good bite, a bit livelier and I liked the way it opened up the 18x20 pattern a little.

    I would have to hit both the 18 & 16 side by side to better compare them as it has been awhile since I hit the 18g.

    I have not hit the 18g RPM.
