    I like it`s low power, and light weight.. But is there an even better string out there in the same department(not isospeed) with lots of control, crisp and multifilament construction...?

    not many like Rip Control. Head FXP Tour is the closest I have found.

    You could try Dunlop Hexy Fiber. It's low powered with lots of spin and softer, but if you're a string breaker it won't last as long.

    The RIP technology is unique and exclusive to Isospeed. They make most of Head's multis.
    I assume they own the patents on the machines that produce and braid the polyolefin ribbons.

    The closest to RIP Control are only available in hybrid sets.
    RIP Tour (Intellitour mains) and RIP Power (Intellistring mains). Both are paired with RIP Feel crosses which is similar (coreless), but not identical to Isospeed Professional.
