Played on clay court with various types of balls.
No problems during stringing. Felt surprisingly soft and flexible during stringing.
On the court the RPM Blast provided good power, good spin and good control. The RPM Blast was rather springy and in contrast to other reviews I found the RPM Blast rather comfortable despite my sensitive arm. Not comparable to Pro Hurricane or Pro Hurricane Tour.
Certainly worth a test, however I think it is overpriced and you get at least the same performance for less money from other strings.

Played on clay court. Reasonable string for a clay court game, but not my favorite string.

After having played with the Signum Pro Tornado for a year or so, I had to restring but was out of stock so I had to try something else and was recommended the RPM Blast.
On the court I was surprised how stiff the RPM Blast felt. Unfortunately the 1.20 mm version had not been available. Due to the significantly higher stiffness, the RPM Blast provides increased precision but dramatically lacks comfort.
For me this string was too stiff, so I rather stick to other strings like Signum Pro Tornado, Firestorm, Poly Plasma, Big Banger, MSV, Topspin, Babolat, Head Hawk etc.

Great string, performs great no matter if you prefer topspin, slice or power. However comfort is an issue.
