Tester Achilles_1981 (3), 2013-08-14  registered Residence: Austria male team player upper league, medium strokes with moderate spin, defensive baseline game
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/53 lbs Babolat Pure Drive GT 2012 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Really a great string with a unique feel. The harder you hit, the better the touch and control. Also the spin is extraordinary. Best spin so far that I've found in a string.
One drawback is certainly the lack of power. Compared to other polys (Isospeed Tournament Plus, Luxilon Alu Power) it does not seem to be as elastic.
Also, the string lacks comfort; I have a sensitive arm. Unfortunately, that is standard for polys. With multifilaments I never have any problems.
Conclusion: Highly recommendable for players with a fast swing and need for spin potential.

Great string with a unique feel. It does not feel like a standard poly, but somehow innovative.

RPM Blast gives more power than Focus-Hex. Focus-Hex gives more comfort and spin than RPM Blast. Both are quite stiff.
