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?

great value

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.

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.

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.

Love it!

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.

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.
