I think it's been mentioned that he actually uses Pro Hurricane Tour, which does not come in black...but I guess it's all to promote RPM Blast.
Also mentioned before:
Actually, the reels of string that Rafa gets are labeled "Pro Hurricane Nadal" and the general consesus here is that he is still using Tour Duralast just dyed to look like RPM or previously like PHT.
A couple of the guys have posted in the strings section about getting string cut from Nadal's reel that had similar printing on them.
