Undoubtedly the most recognizable string in the junior tournament scene. This iconic green string was developed for and with the help of an ATP player. Also, the world's greatest doubles players are currently using it, Bob and Mike Bryan. Now I am done hyp(er)ing (pun intended) it up. Let's get into it!
the color. At first, I wasn't a huge fan of this string and would alternate between this and tour bite for a while. It was just the green color that kept bringing me back. Smart move Solinco.
the more muted response this gave. It gave me a little more confidence to swing out and have confidence off the ground.
the durability of this string. Being a tennis coach doing private and hitting lessons I have a lot of time on the court and this string really does hold up.
the feel off the stringbed. At first though. It takes a little tinkering with the tension to understand where this string shines. Anyway, back to the feel. The more muted stringbed makes it a little hard to grab and pull the ball around for harsh angle shots. That's really the only negative of this string, but like I said it kind of goes away to more you use it and play with the tension.
What player should use this?
This string is for a lot of game styles, as it works to swing out and have the confidence that it will come down into the court.

Babolat RPM Blast - Hyper G has a fairly unique feel. However, it has the same muted feel as RPM. Although, Hyper G does hold the tension for being a poly and that would be the main difference between Hyper G and RPM
This is a very solid string that feels great from just about everywhere on the court. Again, you do get accustomed, but I would say the muted string bed is a little hard to really get a feel for soft angle or throwing up a defensive loop.
