This best thing about this string is its spin potential. I also thought control was pretty good. Everything else was fine but nothing special. I would not purchase this string again.

My first thought while trying out the Babolat RPM Blast, was that this is the best string ever. It's perfect for heavy topspin hitters who can generate their own power. The only issue is that it loses initial tension quite quickly. Access to spin and especially feel go down rapidly after a session or two of play. I still really like this string and will continue to use it though it is costly.

Solid string without drawbacks. It provides lots of controllable power. Feedback was very good overall. I had no issues with comfort either. I also liked the spin potential - my slice had decent bite. I think this string is suitable for a wide range of players.

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.
