Hey guys, just about to cut out the RPM blast 16g ( 53pounds) from my pure aero. Its kinda dead after a month, the strings are pretty much locked rather then slide.
I want to try a new, softer poly than the rpm and string it at 48pounds this time.
All advice will be appreciated. Thanks

You can try rpm blast rough if you like rpm blast, it’s much softer but may have a little less control. I’d try the 16g. Some more strings to try are kirschbaum pro line evolution and head lynx. I’m recommending these on softness instead of control or power, so I hope these work.

rpm was a little bit on stiff side to my liking, my elbow felt it very very slightly. But this could be that I came from wilson ultra v2 with wilson sensstion and Im just getting used to it.
Wanna prevent any injury in the future so wanna go a little bit softer this time.
Thanks for advice [emoji106]

If the 16 feels too stiff try the 17, as it is under 200 for stiffness rating, while 16 is 218. I have a pack of blast rough 17 and pro line evolution as well as hyper g coming tomorrow and I will try it on Tuesday, I’ll happily let you know what I thought. Durability is not an issue right?

Ytex square x, imo it's softer than rpm blast in the same gauge. Good string, but loses tension quicker than others

Look at the TWU string database and look at the low-stiffness polys. I would try Tour Bite Soft or Cyclone Tour.

If you are not a string-breaker, sure. Thinner gauges like 17g and 18g have more feel. You can even try 18g HyperG which I like. But, if you don’t break strings, are you at a level where you benefit from poly? You can also try one of the top multis like Excel or Biphase or even a cheaper gut like Klip.

I used to break strings back in the day. But not recently ( past two years ) when I returned to tennis. There were no polys at that time and before I got the PA I was playin with a multi and had no issues apart from not being able to generate spin.
The RPM is my first ever poly and im kinda testing waters here. Its a big jump with new frame and new string. I do like its ability to generate spin but it is a bit harsh when hitting hard for long and sometimes it feels detached from me.
Will try the cyclone in 17g next and see if it improves as would like to stay with polys. The spin is just superior compared to multi
