For players seeking comfort and playability, Head FXP 16 utilizes a unique combination of materials to achieve all new performance. The special Tri-cluster of Fibergel filaments inside the central polyamide core provide greater elasticity for enhanced ball pocketing and greater comfort. The polyamide central core of FXP provides solid tension maintenance and classic feel. Each strand of the outerwraps contain three polyester filaments for enhanced durability and a crisp feel. To complete the string, a DuPont Synthetic 66 coating is applied to reduce friction and prevent string notching. This string is a good option for players seeking a comfortable and crisp feeling string with the durability of a monofilament construction.
Construction: Monofilament polyamide + Fibergel filaments + outerwrap

I hybrid these fxp and sonic pro. I have never had so much control.
For the price, these strings are good with decent control and comfort. Also the durability is good too
head fxp works for me
Very pleased with response of this string - gives both pop and spin thanks
the string strength is great but dont like how it moves after a slice n tension drops after flat heavy hits
FXP 16g by Head
Great product! Realy makes a difference with just enouth power and gread fill. Excellent versatility. I am much more comfortable to come to the net and volley using this string, and able to generate a lots of top spin when I need to.
Great String for Control
I am fairly new into Tennis, so getting a racquet restrung was not something I knew was necessary. However after advice from a few Tennis players I decided to do it.
I decided on this string mainly based on the recommendation of the staff at Tennis Express. I gave them some insight into my tennis game average at best and they recommended this string to me. After some follow up questions, string tension etc I got the work done.
My first impressions were really good, not sure if its in my head or not but I feel I have much better control of the ball now. I feel there is much better control on my top spin, back spin shots etc. I feel more confident in my ability to get a little crazy with my racquet and still be able to make shots.
The only downside Id say is I do feel there is a lack of power. I admit this may be a mental thing, but I do feel it requires much more effort than before to hit and see power from that shot. Ultimately at this point in my game Id prefer more control
REVIEW FXP 16G
I HAVE FOUND THIS SET OF STRINGS TO BE AVERAGE. THE TENSION TA WHICH THE RAQUET WAS STRUNG COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE HIGHER FOR MY TASTE. I CANT JUDGE DURABILITY YET HOWEVER I HAVE HAD THEM BEFORE ON A WILSON STEAM, AND THEY PROVE TO LAST IN GOOD CONDITION FOR FOUR MONTHS PLAYING SIX TO TEN HOURS WEEKLY AT THE ALTITUDE OF N.Y.
Broke after only two weeks
Broke after only two weeks
I like this string. I used it to hybrid with Sonic Pro. It was more durable than I thought. I might try others to hybrid.
Used the racquet only 4 days
My son used the racquet 4 times and the strings broke. He is not a heavy hitter.
I just love my new Head tennis bag. It is very sharp looking and I can fit everything in it that I need when I
play tennis. Ive received many compliments on its stylish good looks. I couldnt be more pleased with this bag.
FXP 16G & SONIC PRO 16G
Switched to these strings right before nationals last month in Vegas. They performed well and really saved my arm. Great string combo!
Soft and did I say Soft
Great ball pocketing, low powered, very,very soft. This what I recommend for a great control multifilament string. However, be forewarned this is a very vert soft, plush feeling string.
The Head FXP 16g was a free option with the Head Radical Pro that I bought. These are stiffer strings than most of the multi-filaments that I have played with. It took a while to get used to, but am playing well with them now. TE strung them very professionally and sent out the racquets in a very timely fashion.
