The Curated Take

Brandon M., Tennis Expert
By the Expert Community

Babolat RPM Blast Rough is a great entry into polyester strings thanks to its comfortable feel and more powerful response than most other polyester strings on the market. It offers good spin potential with its shaped profile and durability is top notch. Tension maintenance could have been a bit better as there was a noticeable loss of control after a few hours of play.

Ideal for
  • Softer construction for more feel than typical polyester strings
  • More powerful than many polys
  • Shaped construction adds spin to shot
Not ideal for
  • Big hitters may find power too much after a few hours as the tension drops off

If you want to WIN, you need to use SPIN. The RPM Rough tennis string gives you great spin. You can actually feel the string texture. And the texture gives every stroke more bite. No wonder this string is used by the world's best players, including Félix Auger-Aliassime. Made in France.

Your racquet's strings are its driving force. In fact, they account for half its performance. In other words, you need to choose carefully. We invented tennis strings in 1875. Since then, we've been coming up with innovations to help you play your best game and have ever more fun on the court.

Benefits:

  • Incredible Spin: The octagonal structure and rough high-density copolyester texture sets the ball whirling, taking your spin to a new level.
  • Durability: The copolyester in the RPM range makes the monofilaments especially durable. This is perfect for players who hit the ball hard. The embossed logo further reduces friction to make the strings last longer.
  • Control: The stiff RPM range strings give you control so you can hit precise shots that stay on the court.

People love Curated Experts

What a gem!
5 /5
Allison is fantastic! She is super knowledgeable, friendly, and gave great suggestions. Allison took the time to understand what I was looking for, my likes/dislikes and then gave recommendations based on really listening to my needs. And she was spot on! Her recommendations were so great, I had trouble deciding but she was there again, helping me to narrow down to final choices. I have used Allison a few times and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again. It was by sheer coincidence I got connected to Allison, who actually lives fairly close to me, and besides a knowledgeable expert for my tennis needs, I feel like I’ve gained a friend. She checks in periodically and I love that personal touch.

I had no idea this service existed, and after a couple clicks starting a racket search I landed on Curated with Russell as my expert helper. I was very surprised to get an immediate response to my question and then repeated follow up. He gave me detailed recommendations and made it so simple for me to choose, even by helping me with my shopping cart. This was an incredibly helpful service with a very friendly, extremely knowledgeable expert to guide my choice. And the best part is that the price of the racket was a great deal! Very pleased with this service, and particularly Russell's help. Will definitely recommend to others! Thanks!
