    Can anyone suggest me a string that plays closest to Babolat Fibertour?
    Thanks.

    Try Babolat's Addiction and then Prince's Premier Attack...

    Thank you Valjean! But my dealer has no such strings. Head Rip Control can be a solution?
    Thanks.

    Not exactly; Fibertour was more middle-of-the-road. You should list what your dealer does have, and consider sending for string to have installed for you. And now say, too, what exactly you liked Fibertour for.

    Thank you very much for the answer, Valjean!
    About Fibertour I like the control on shots strong and flat, has good power but not too much, well balanced. Fibertour is a string with original feel and comfort but still firm, play for me like a stiffer gut.

    My dealer has these multi:
    Tecnifibre X-one, TGV, Xr-1
    Gamma Professional, XP, Asterisk
    Head Rip Control, Intellitour
    MSV Q10, Softcontrol
    Gosen Tecgut

    Tecnifibre's XR-1 or Gosen's Tecgut, I would feel, of those you mentioned... Fibertour, when it came out long ago, was designed to compete with Wilson's Sensation.
