    Hey All.

    There's been a lot of talk about spraying silicone on to strings. I've never done this before but I would like to try.

    First all, I've used Babalot RPM Blast many times and it already has silicone coating on it. Would spraying it again on Silicone-coated strings will make any difference?

    What and where can you buy Silicone spray for tennis strings.

    Can the spray be used on all strings (including Multis, Syn. Gut, etc.)

    Also, how much do you spray on the string during a hitting session. Do you spray it on then wait about 15 - 30 minutes to let it soak in? And do you need to spray it on several times per hour (during a break) or just once beforehand, and that would be enough.

    Is it non-toxic? Though I usually wash my hands after a tennis session, I still get blisters and rub my eyes occasionally during hitting.

    thanks!

    You are better off rubbing wax from candle. It works for me on natural gut string.
