Always looking to improve, Babolat figured out a way to make one of its more popular polyesters softer. By injecting air bubbles into the core of the string, it gives it a slightly softer feel. Babolat kept the octagonal shape so players still get the spin. For some it will still feel pretty stiff; however it will be more forgiving for players who hit hard and need just a touch of softness.

    Comments about Babolat RPM Team 17 Gauge String:

    I had increased power and control on all shots with greater control on backhands and lobs. The sweet spot was the face, the entire face, of the racquet. I found this string very comfortable, my tennis elbow almost disappeared, but has come back some when string lost resiliency. Unlike a lot of poly's, I never lost playability until the strings went bad at 6 weeks. My previous string was Babolat RPM Blast 18.
