Babolat RPM Blast is now available in an ultra thin 18 gauge. An excellent choice for big hitters looking for extra spin. Octagonal (8-sided) cross-section adds the extra bite on the ball for added topspin and slice. New high density co-polymer polyester (PET) monofilament combined with a new cross-linked silicone coating provides even more spin and greater ball control.
Technology: 8-sided co-polymer monofilament polyester with silicone coating.
Length: 40 ft/12 m
Gauge: 18 (1.20mm)

I've played with this product since it came out. Once tried dthe 17 g, but it lacked in relation to the 18. Plenty of power, control and spin, and I've never broken it. Babolat rates higher than all strings.
5 StarsThe best of both

The feel and power combination are second to none. The spin that you can develop is amazing. In a tighter string pattern the durability is very good.
