Babolat RPM Rough 17

Serve up some spin with the Babolat RPM Rough 17 tennis strings. Formerly known as the Babolat RPM Blast Rough 17, this monofilament co-polyester string uses a rough texture and coating to increase spin on the ball. Players will enjoy a smooth feel at impact as they glide across the court. If you use spin as your greatest weapon on the court, string up your racquet with the Babolat RPM Rough 17 to take full advantage.

good for power players

Softer so a little less spin than my pro hurricane strings but for playing with 100% poly it works well for me. It does lose control for about the last hour before it breaks I have noticed but plays really well when new and for about seven hours for me (typically breaks after about eight hours but I am using the 17 gauge version).
