    RPM Blast "hybrid": 18 in Mains, 17 in crosses

    Hey everyone, After reading the 18 gauge (1.20mm) customer reviews of RPM Blast and considering I'm not destroying my 17 gauge strings in 10 hours (I should hit harder and spinnier, I know), would an 18g mains (for bite) and a 17g crosses (for control?) a good mix? Apparently, a full bed of 18...

    What's the deal about RPM Blast and ALU Power?

    I seen RPM Blast and ALU Power are the most used strings in the professional circuit. I heard people claiming there is nothing special about them just marketing. Other claim they are the best strings. How come they are the most used string to date in the professional tour? Or am I wrong? Is...

    How often should I change my strings? (Info in description)

    So I play about 2-3 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. I use the Babolat Pure Aero with a full bed of RPM Blast 16 at 55 lbs. I’ve had these strings for a week, and I feel a slight difference. Nothing major, just a slight less pop or power. Thoughts?

    Poly tour pro breaking on me like no tomorrow?!

    Hey guys, I am a semi-professional player ranked around 2000. I use poly tour pro and really like the string, so much so that I have been putting up with its lack of duribility for some time now! I originally used the 1.25 version, but it broke on me every 45-60 mins. I just couldn't deal with...

    Hyper G vs RPM Blast?

    Hey guys, I have the 2013 Aero Pro Drive and I used it only with RPM Blast 1.30mm for 5 years. I want now to try Solinco Hyper G 1.30mm (16G). Does anyone tried both strings? What is the biggest difference between these? Which tension should I try? I used always tension 25kg (55 lbs) on RPM...
