Description

One of the more unique string constructions around, Head RIP Control 16 is a blatant advertisement for its best property, control. Utilizing a central core of standard nylon fibers, this string provides a surprisingly elastic response to go along with its incredible precision. The most unique feature of RIP Control is the application of an outer sheath of polyolefin ribbons made famous by IsoSpeed. These thin, flat ribbons are braided around the central core and provide plenty of control and texture for additional spin generation. With solid durability, these strings are a great option for baseline players seeking control and spin without moving to a very stiff string. The feel is crisp, while still providing enough feel for those trips towards the net.

Construction: Nylon Multifilament + Polyolefin Ribbons
Color: Black/Silver
Gauge: 1.30mm

Awesome string
5/5
About 9 years ago I developed tennis elbow, I talked to a friend who suggested to go to a lighter raquet and softer string, thats when I came across the Head Rip Control 16 and my game never been the same, I dont use any other string. It has fibers that help my top spin, and also gives me plenty of control. I have been using it for years and Im not ready to change, after some therapy a lighter raquet and soft strings my tennis elbow hasnt returned at all, the string is also very durable.

HEAD Rip Control 16
5/5
HEADs Rip Control 16 has been the highly preferred string of our high school players for several years. It lives up to the HEAD description of durability and control and has added texture for spin while not being too stiff a string. The young players love the pop from their racquets, and the black and white color makes their racquets stand out.

when I saw this string I had high hopes I did not have that much control I am in high school but when I got the item I got them restrung and it seems like the are worst then the stock prince strings it came with I would have bought different strings if a had a chance it was a waste of spending $15 to get my Racquet restrung

5/5
Great string -- very durable My 3boys all hit heavy topspin ball and popped strings every match Now we use this for mains -not half as many popped And feel is stiffer so thats why we use a synthetic on cross

5/5
I bought this for my son. He loves this racquet and so does all the kids on the tennis team. It is very light and comfortable. I saw an immediate improvement in his game. I would buy this racquet again and thinking of it for myself.

Great String
5/5
I strung this on my 2012 TFLASH 315 SPEED FLEX RACQUET and its really gentle on my elbow. Ive been suffering with TE recently and was looking for a soft multi without sacrificing the performance of the poly. This string provides a good spin and power. Majority of multi strings will cost you fortune but if youre looking for an inexpensive multi, try this. You wont regret.
