Initially I had trouble controlling my shots with this string. But if you hit with a bit more spin, you are able to leverage the awesome power and great touch of this string. This is probably going to be my new standard string, the price for a reel is reasonable.

If you can sacrifice a bit of the control of the Alu Power and equalize this with a bit more spin, you will enjoy the RPM Blast.

I did used to think the Babolat RPM Blast 1.25 was a better string than the 1.30 mm version which is rated higher here. For me the 1.25 mm version provides very good feedback, but the 1.30 has much better spin and control.

This is a great string in my opinion and was my favourite until I tried the Yonex Poly Tour Spin 1.25. This does however feel a much better all round string than the Yonex Poly Tour Spin, the Yonex just has more spin and control.

I didn't like this string, it has good power and control in the first day or 2, after that I start missing my normal plays, I insisted with the string for a few more days, but it's not good. Yonex Poly Tour Spin is better.

Compared to Yonex Poly Tour SPIN, RPM Blast is worse, control isn't as good and topspin neither. I will not buy it again.

Tester Robert_Edward (6), 2012-11-18  registered Residence: Australia male tournament player national level, hard strokes with moderate spin, offensive baseline game
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/53 lbs Yonex RDiS 300 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Packing an uber-powerful punch, this string has almost no control whatsoever even at 55 pounds. The ball seems to slip right off the stringbed although it offers decent spin. It's hard to generate heavily-topspun groundies when there's so little control and so much raw power. The feel is definitely unique and it feels good bombing down big serves with RPM. Possibly it's a gauge issue, 16 is more critically acclaimed, maybe thinner gauges of RPM are just too springy and slippery for serious play. The tension retention properties of this string are simply ABYSMAL.
