    Loving rip control, just curious does hexy fiber offer more power?
    I find rip to be the best control string ever made as far as multis go.

    Just comparing the two in 16 gauge, I liked Hexy better. Almost as much spin, softer and I thought it had better control. The big problem with Hexy is durability.

    One of my favorite multi setups is RIP Control mains and Hexy Fiber crosses. It feels soft, has good spin, has the durability of RIP Control, and for me the touch is much better than full bed RIP Control.

    LOL! great minds think alike. I am using the same setup but I am using Hexy Mains/ RIP crosses. I am using 17g's for both strings. I thought hexy mains produces a livelier stringbed even though it's less durable.

    I am also trying out WC Supercharged/ RIP as well. I'll write about it as soon as I get to try.
