It's a pretty cheap string. Try Luxilon for a good synthetic.

I'm sorry if my question is confusing but i meant is it ok to use a spin string as crosses in a hybrid if i want less spin?

Try it in the mains and use thin soft poly crosses. That makes a nice setup.

RIP Control isn't considered a spin string. It's more for comfort.

Bud, I think the OP doesn't want string from what I read so it seems like a good choice by what everyone has been saying and what I read in the past.

i said i don't want a spinny string... aka textured strings because my forehand gets alot of topspin already, and i was wondering if it would be ok to put a TEXTURED string as a cross in a hybrid

Sure, just make sure your mains are poly (or something really tough)... otherwise, your heavy topspin forehand will cause any textured strings to saw right through the mains.

I've seen textured SG crosses saw through kevlar mains by someone with a heavy topspin forehand.

As you know, the RIP Control strings are slightly textured... therefore, choose your mains carefully.
