BEST 16 GAUGE STRING
This HEAD syn-gut 16 gauge string is perfect for players who hit the courts often and hit a lot of balls. Durable and inexpensive. Highly recommend this tring for all club, high school, or neighborhood players
The string was just what we needed. It came highly recommended by my daughter's coach and he was so right!
I really like this string and have ordered it again. It has allowed me to create much more spin on my strokes and also seems to grip the ball longer, allowing more control. My only critique is that it seems to dirty and wear quicker than normal string due to its twisted filament design. Once one thin filament breaks, the rest are soon to follow. From talking to others, this seems to be a common issue with hybrid strings. Given that, I will continue to buy this.
Finally found it!
I'm a 4.0 player and I had tennis elbow in the past and I need gentle strings to my arm. I was using Prince premier multifilament 18G and I liked it enough without hurting my wrist/elbow/shoulder. ButI I fell in love with this Head Rip control multifilament 18 G because it is much more forgiving yet brings power and control! The price is better too. I don't know how durable it would be since I only hit with it 3 times (2 hrs each). So far, so good! Why have I not heard about this string before?
I am a 4.5 senior player.. this is a great string for playing and the price,,, I break a lot of string... this is the best string I have found...
head fibre gel
Nice overall string plays well and wears good,works good as a half set in the crosses with a premium in the mains
finally found it
I am using Prince tennis rackets and looking for tennis string to be happy with for the same time. Finaly found it. This Head synthetic gut PPS 16G is the best I ever played with. Great combination of power and control and perfect for few different Prince rackets.
Head Syn. Gut
Very good middle of the road synthetic gut. Good price point especially with sale, consistent quality, easy to string. also a nice choice to put into a hybrid stringing as well
Excellent string for avoding tennis elbow
This is one of the few strings that I've tried that doesn't lead to tennis elbow. This string typically lasts me about three weeks hitting 3-4 times a week.
BEST SYNGUT STRING EVER
these strings are dependable, comfortable, and come in variety of colors; highly recommend these all serious club or tournament players
Head Synthetic Gut PPS 16G Tennis String
This string is ok, not great. I would rate the control lower to other string I've played with. The price was good, but I would try something else next time.
This string offers power,feel and price !! Its a great string and I love hitting with it .
Good string for the price
I used to use another multifilament, especially for stringing other people's racquets. But that string is no longer available, so I now use this product from Head. It's soft, has good feel, and seems to have good elasticity. And its more reasonably priced than an nxt or technifibre product.
I've tried different strings for topspin and this is by far the best! It has a lot more grab on the ball, which helps get more topspin and combined with the softness, helps with feel. My daughter hits with some pretty hard hitters and tried Luxilon & other string of the same type and ended up with a hand and arm injury within a few weeks of each other. She went back to the Rip Control and hasn't had another
This is a great string, I use this with head sonic and its a great combination, it gives me good spin and power and I wouldn't change it, recommend trying the string. Its also a great price, retail at a pro shop its close to 20$
I am an advanced player and needed to have a string that provided me with power and also with spin so when I found sonic pro it was amazing. It is a very soft poly unlike luxilon, and it provides you with that extra spin. I highly recommend this string for any player that is looking for some spin and control for there big swings
I decided to use this string instead of a less expensive brand and it made all the difference. More control with just the right amount of control. Such a smooth feel. I will always order this string.
Spin and control
Great control and spin at various string tensions. Initially used the string at a clay court tournament. Have used for 6 years on all surfaces and love it.
This is a very good string for the player that is looking for more control then power. I have been putting this string in a larger number of players that I string for and in most cases this is a good string for them. If you are looking for control and good tension I would give this a try.
