    looks as if Roddick ditched the RMP blast for his trusty Pro Hurricane Tour, looks like everyone isnt falling in love with this stuff

    Even if it was better for their game, most of the pro's would switch back. Tennis is one of those sports where players are very superstitious and dont like change. Even if it gave a small improvement I expect there would just be something that he didn't feel comfortable about it, just because its not what he's always used.

    maybe it was too powerful for him. This string is supposed to have big time pop for a poly...

  6. it really did look like the PHT unless its a new string Babolat is coming out with. even then i highly doubt that as well

  7. I was at his doubles match (and caught the ball! James Blake threw it right too me, pic shows Andy's sig. See my avatar). It was definitely PHT, probably crossed with gut per the usual setup.

    Here are somepics I found from AO 2010 with what appears to be a black (or dyed black string), presumably the RPM Blast.
