RPM Team is octagonal and offers players the same great spin as RPM Blast, but now with more playability due to the Low Density Co-PET construction. Micro air injections during the extrusion process allow this string to offer more elasticity at ball contact making it a more manageable poly without losing spin access. It is a great choice for players who want the polyester feel, but with more forgiveness.

The Bottom Line: Babolat designed RPM Team to be a more playable string for those that want the polyester feel and bite of RPM Blast, but crave more forgiveness. Babolat did exactly that. When I playtested RPM Team, I not only felt, but also was able to see the great bite that I had from the baseline. The octagonal design really gripped the ball and helped it dive down, just inside the baseline. I felt as though there was more pop to RPM Team than RPM Blast, and the sweet spot was more forgiving. I also felt as though it was easier and required less effort to keep the ball deep in the court. There were times that I felt the ball go a little too deep, but that was not often and was easily corrected.


My midcourt game was very effective, which meant that I was confident at net. Since I could rip the ball more with the added spin, I was able to go for a lot more on my approach shots and really accelerate my racquet head speed. My volleys were aggressive in the court. However, I did feel a slight lack of feel if I was stretched and did not quite hit the sweet spot. My serves were similar to when I play-tested RPM Blast, but had some more juice behind them. I was still able to hit very heavy serves and stay aggressive, but they had some more bounce to them than they did with RPM Blast.


Overall, RPM Team is designed for players that want the benefits of RPM Blast but need a little more comfort on the ball. It is more forgiving than Blast, but still maintains the tension retention, durability and better playability.
