    The only polys I've played with are RPM Blast, Lux Rough, Tourna BHB7, and Volkyl Cyclone.

    The Rough obviously doesnt fit in with the others, but of the other three I've tried, I'd rank em RPM Blast>>> BHB7 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Volkyl Cyclone.

    Well, anyway, I've got some holiday giftcards I need to use, and since I cant buy RPM Blast with em, I need the next best thing.

    Right now I have BHB7 ordered as I think its fairly close, but would still like suggestions to see if theres something thats closer to RPM Blast.
    Something with a slippery coating for string slide, and not just edge shaped for spin which isnt as effective as the string slide.

    Thanks

    Klipper's Spin Max. My clients swear by it and so do I. It is one of those strings that a player feels an immediate bite and increased topspin. Always puts a smile on their face!

    KlipperUSA makes that claim on their website. Same string!

    I was thinking Black Magic too. Other than not having the edges, it has the same feel when stringing.

    +1 for black magic. Great playing soft string, plus much easier to string than rpm. It's all I used for my college team.

    We just came across your post and thought we could add a suggestion: Based on our customers review we offer a string that plays similar to RPM. The string is called Tour Status but it does NOT have an optimum slick surface for perfect recoil. If you look for a string with this particular characteristic I would suggest our Durafluxx string or one of our competitors string called Tour Bite from Solinco which we also know provides excellent recoil. Hope that helps.
