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

Colors: Copper / Natural

Gauge: 1.30mm / 16g

Length: 12.2 m / 40 ft

The strings were not good. They broke within a week of use. I had used it only a couple of times. Sorry to say, but I am disappointed !
