The Curated Take

Brandon M., Tennis Expert
By the Expert Community

Babolat RPM Blast is an extremely popular string thanks to Rafael Nadal endorsing it. It helps players swing hard and generate lots of spin like Rafa thanks to its shaped profile and low powered response. It is a stiff string that has a somewhat dampened feel which can cause a bit of a disconnected feel on impact. Big hitting players looking for durability, spin, and control should definitely consider RPM Blast.

Ideal for
  • Lots of snapback for extra spin
  • Tension maintenance is superb
  • Controlled
Not ideal for
  • Stiff string can cause arm issues depending on the frame

RPM Blast brings heavy spin and maximum control to your game. As you swing big with full strokes, RPM Blast consistently performs and lives up to the hype. You’ll be ripping winners, hitting dipping pass shots, and creating angles you didn’t know existed. Just ask Rafa. Or his opponents. Made in France.

Your strings are the engine of your racquet. Half of your racquet’s performance comes from your strings. Which means choosing the right string is important. We invented tennis string in 1875. And we’ve been innovating ever since, so you can play your best and enjoy the game more than ever.

Benefits:

  • Spin: The octagonal structure with a high-density co-polyester adds a phenomenal rotation to the ball and brings an exceptional spin.
  • Durability: Co-polyester compound makes our RPM family very durable monofilaments. Ideal for heavy hitters who expect string performance over time.
  • Control: Firm response of our RPM family strings provides a great control to get accuracy in all your shots and keep the ball the court.

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!
