Not as crisp as the normal RPM Blast, but better feel and comfort. Great precision on both forehand and backhand. Amazing depth control! I liked it.

I'm really enjoying this string so far (4 hours). I strung it lower than usual. The gain in power came in handy on my weak backhand in defensive situations. On my forehand I was happy as I had perfect depth and speed with moderate swing. Only at full speed it occurred that the shots scattered around. A fresh Alu Power or RPM Blast provide a bit better control at that speed. On the other hand, the spin potential of the RPM Blast Rough is definitely great. That was evident on my backhand slice and forehand topspin on sharp angles.
Overall I enjoyed it a lot. I also want to point out the nice touch in all situations. I'm positive that many players find some characteristics in the RPM Blast Rough that they have been missing so far. Great string. Could well be that I will stick with it.

The RPM Blast Rough plays a lot different than the YPTP! The RPM Blast Rough is much more lively; nice added power and significantly better touch and spin. For me the YPTP is much too dull. The RPM Blast Rough is very lively and provides a nice solid sound on impact.

Comparing to the Alu Power it has less tension stability, first 3-4 hours of play it feels amazing how much spin and feel it can generate. Once the tension drops becomes too powerful for my taste.
