Babolat RPM Blast Rough

Babolat has entered the “rough” polyester string market in a brilliant way!

Head Velocity MLT

Head has introduced a new string, and, by doing so has joined a group of brands that are still investing in string R&D!  Contrary to some thinking polyester string is not the best string for every player so congratulations to the brands that are contributing.
