Babolat RPM Soft

There is another thread on this topic but I have been using it off and on for the last 3 weeks, it feels and plays like Origin and that's been a fairly common observation among the players who are testing it.

Didnt like it... Felt like syn gut while stringing and hitting. Not sure if it can be considered a poly but for a syn gut felt pretty nice though not as durable as Prince Syn gut. Strung it full bed at 53lbs on Pro Staff V13 and also Alu/Rpm hybrid at 50/53lbs.

courts were wet so i hit against the wall. Definitely felt the poly in it. felt the firmness. not a ton of bite. nice, crisp, solid feel. strung at 60lbs in a gravity mp. Going to give it another go tomorrow.

Yep, as they say, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...
 
I already know this. I'm pretty sure I was the person who said it originally.
I have been told otherwise by B that it isn't so will try it either way,
That's what I was told as well. Seems like it is unclear if it "replaces Origin" or "IS rebranded Origin". I agree it seems like it is meant to take Origin's spot in the lineup but the brief time I sampled it, it looked and played like something more Zyex based and even bears some color similarity to the "natural color" of Zyex Monogut from Ashaway.

I can't see how it would be re-branded Origin if the following is to be believed:
You are correct. My mistake. felt much firmer than a normal multi. needed to string it lower. usually don't mind tighter tensions.
Origin was a very powerful polyamide string. I used it a lot with Velocity crosses and I had to string the Origin in the high 50's much like I'd string gut.

Have it strung in my 360 speed pro as Mains at 55# and Bablat Syn Gut as crosses. So far so good, honeymoon stage. Nice plush setup. Nice pop and also control. I wonder how long do I have before everything turns into a pumpkin.

-ive tested side/side b.origin and b.rpm.SOFT
-if these two are not the same string (rebranded), then most people will not be able to tell the difference
-plays the same, feels the same, strings the same, sounds the same
-all indications to me are clear, ITS THE SAME!!
-better color on the new ones, maybe yes
-better newer material feel, yes
-its still feels like a premium synthetic gut string 2me
