February 11, 2015

Since inventing tennis strings 140 years ago, Babolat has blazed a trail of continuous innovation to offer tennis players the best equipment to suit their game. Thanks to this know-how and expertise, Babolat introduces a unique multifilament string offering competitive players an effective blend of power and durability without compromising comfort.

Developed in France by Babolat’s Research & Development department, the new Babolat M7 string combines a patented multifilament construction composed of 7 monofilaments 100% polyamide — the first of its kind. This construction allows for more durability while keeping the soft feel and power, and allows for more control.
