Players search for a more clear sound with each stroke. This inspired the Babolat teams to design the RPM Power. The parameters of the extrusion of the string–the moment the string is formed–have been calibrated differently and optimized to provide more flexibility resulting in more power. A specific coating has been added to give the string the feel and sound that players expect.
“We had a real demand for more power, while keeping the famous RPM spin. There was also this demand for a more ‘crisp’ sound and feel, which gives players more confidence,” says Alexandre Israel. “We worked in this direction and did a lot of tests with many players including Dominic Thiem. He was immediately attracted to it and adopted the RPM Power.
