    HEAD RIP Control 17

    Multifilament Synthetic. HEAD's Rip Control is as close as you can get to natural gut with a synthetic string. A unique ribbon construction is woven around a Multifilament Polyamid fiber core with a textured surface for increased spin potential.

    HEAD Rip Control is a great middle ground between a stiff, durability string and a soft, playability string. If you need the best of both worlds, Rip Control provides a decent blend of durability and playability at a very affordable price. As a bonus, it comes in multiple colors and has a unique, braided look.

    • Multifilament Polyamid Fiber core provides a high resistance to movement and durability.
    • Unique Twisted Polyolefine Ribbon outer wrap provides an extraordinary feel and soft touch with increased spin potential and control.
    • Overall this string provides precision, control and maximum playability with great topspin and extra durability.

    Great synthetic string

    I switched to this string from a poly one. What a difference, easier on the arms and shoulders to say the least. The one thing not stated on package is that the string is textured, not a huge deal but I already put a lot of spin on it so I wouldn't have picked this string if I had known that. That being said it is a great string, placement, and feel, are excellent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a synthetic string.

    Closest to Poly, in a good way

    Poly strings allow me to swing away but still keep the ball in the court. Unfortunately they are unhealthy for me to use. RIP Control has solved that problem. Strung at 54 lbs in my Bab Pure Storm GT, and now have a weapon!!!

    Have used for many years and still love

    After a friend did research, he recommended this string for my game. The ball seems to stay on the racquet longer, so I can create more spin. I've used this string for over 10 years and still love it.
