Guys like us don't count. We can scowl at a package of multi or syn gut, and have it pop before it ever goes into the frame.
RIP Control is a good string for a certain segment of the playing population, and it lasts pretty well when you string it straight up. It would get eaten alive in a hybrid though.
I did however warn you that you wouldn't like it, and that it wouldn't give you the results you were looking for, but you were a doubting Craig and didn't listen.
