Babolat announces the launch of a new tennis string, RPM Blast. Used since the Australian Open by Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the black string marked with the white “double-line” is already generating a lot of buzz on and off the courts.

RPM Blast (Revolutions Per Minute) is a monofilament string that gives players more spin, more power and a unique feel at ball impact. “With this new string, I have more spin, and it helps me hit deeper…" explains Rafael Nadal.

As for Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who joined the Babolat team on January 1, he won his first competition in Kooyong before reaching the semi-finals at Melbourne with the RPM Blast string. “…I’ve never played with a string like this before,” said the #1 French player.

“The advice and recommendations of Tour players have been decisive in the development of the string,” adds Cécile Gindre, String Products Manager at Babolat. “The combination of the high-density material and a specific coating gives it both power and spin.”

RPM Blast will be available starting April 2010 in 17 and 16 gauge. MSRP $16.95.
