I've changed racquets quite a few times in my 6 years of playing, but always use RIP Control 17. Great spin, feel and durability. Plays soft and is not too powerful. A great control string. From:Bill

Man this string provides amazing feel. My net play in doubles is sharper and I feel like I have that much more control on my shots. The spin potential and power is a great combination. This is my new string of choice. I have used Wilson Sensation but this string is that much better feel for me. From:Clayton
