    Comments about Babolat RPM Blast 17 + VS 16:

    My rackets have great balance, weight, and feel but lack built in power (Pro Kennex Ki5 PSEs). This hybrid string set adds the small additional power pop that they lack especially at the low end of the tension range.

        You can use any combination you want, but we would recommend using RPM Blast in the mains.

    • Q:

      What is the recommended tension, or range of tension, of the two strings in combination?
      Asked on 2/15/2013 by Jim from Winston-Salem, NC

      • A:

        The "recommended" range of tensions on the strings is highly dependent on both your racket tension tolerance and your desired level of control. Higher levels of tension will result in higher levels of control. As the recommended range of tension for these strings is between 50 and 60 lbs, you should adjust according to both your racket tolerances and your play style.

        Babolat recommends 62 lbs as the max tension for the RPM and 66 as the max tension for the VS. Keep in mind that tension is also dictated by the recommended tension range printed on your racquet.
