Comments: Horrible string. Never get it. The strings move every time you hit the
ball and it's so annoying.
Comments: Strung this on my microgel prestige mid as of August 25,2009,
and these strings moved after 20 mins of playing... Recommended to those
who are 2.5-3.5 Level Players, not recommended to 4.0+..* PS: I broke
them the same day...
Comments: Don't like it. Has no life. Played first game and will be back to Rip Control.
Comments: I strung this 60lbs with 1.25mm TopSpin Cyberflash in the mains and they frayed within 30 minutes of
match play and broke within 3 hours.
Comments: I was using Luxilon Big Banger Rough and that string died after two weeks so I tried these today. I got a
lot of pop and control.
Comments: I used the FXP Control on my Head Liquidmetal Radical at 60lbs and 62 lbs and found the strings very
stiff and hard. I was disappointed. I might be getting my tension wrong, but it was way too stiff for my taste. Maybe different
racquets would respond differently, I don't know.
Comments: This string has incredible power and comfort! The groundstrokes were great thanks to the extra spin.
The only problem was the second serve. The power made my second serve a bit too powerful. I strung at 57lbs. I would
recommend a higher string tension.
Comments: The first time I used this string it broke on the second day of hitting. I decided to give it another try,
and the same thing happened. The outer shell protecting the core will crack, and fraying begins around two hours of play. The
string lasts about 5 to 6 hours on average, and I managed to break 2 cross strings at the same time. The racquet I used was only
strung at 58lbs, so there was no premature breakage due to excessive tension. I rate the playability a 5 and the durability a 3 on a
Comments: Excellent playability, average durability (2-3 weeks), slightly less spin but definitely with more
consistent depth-all in all a very good synthetic.
Comments: Very comfortable string with some extra pop and good control. However, outer coating deteriorates
quickly followed by fraying and breakage. The least durable strings I have ever used.
Comments: I found this string to be extraordinarily durable. My pro recommended it because I was breaking
strings every three weeks. My first set of FXP Power 16 got me through the whole indoor season, which amazed me. Playability is
also excellent--good spin and feel.
Comments: Excellent playability. Miserable endurance. Tension-carrying filaments are poorly protected under a thin
outer wrap with a friction succeptible coating. String and string friction from play quickly cuts through the coating and outer wrap,
and then the unprotected central filaments fray and fail with amazing speed.
