View Full Version : Low-power, NON-POLY string reccomendation?

02-26-2009, 07:59 AM
I'm trying to find a low power string to put in my AG300. I used to use a racquet with a tighter string pattern and when I switched to the AG i found all my lobs going long and my drop shots sitting up too much, so i figure a lower power string with more control would be the ticket. Normally i would just ratchet up the tension on a standard syngut but it kills the playability, and the increased tension shrinks the sweet spot. I can't use poly because I've got a sensitive wrist. I'm thinking of FXP or possibly head rip control.... any thoughts?

Gosen Jim courier string.

I have had good luck with the Tecnifbre TGV strings in a MP 18*20 string bed - low tension loss and good comfort.

i am currently playing with head rip control and find it to be a very good low powered multi. control and spin is really good and at mid tension its still not as powerful as other multis. i have about four hours of play with these strings so i can't comment on the durability.

+1 for Head Rip Control

Another plus point of Rip Control is that it holds tension well and doesn't move around or fray as much as a regular multi.

+1 For Rip Conrol

Isospeed Professional Classic is very good in this sense, but it needs to be strung about 8 lbs tighter than you would think, since it drops tension significantly almost immediately after stringing. After that though, it holds tension very well, and plays soft and low-powered.

Is isospeed professional similar to rip control? I know they are both coreless ribbon-type strings. i can't get isospeed around here and rip control is sounding pretty good indeed.

Gosen Jim courier string.

I can't agree. It's a pretty decent power string...

Pretty sure Iso Speed makes the RIP ribbon strings, hence the similarities. I'm curious about Rip Control now that I've used Iso Pro for a while. It's my 'poly' (low power string) of choice to pair with livelier strings. Great for the arm.

This is that niche that RIP control seems to occupy for sure. Can't comment on IsoSpeed unfortunately but +1 here for RIP also. The feel is quite unique though, you will either like it or not.

Try a kevlar blend.
