I measured the string factor for RIP Control 16g at 1.34. This will result in a much lower reading. Since you have a drop weight stringer, it should take no more than 2 minutes for you to get a good string factor measurement if you follow the directions on RacquetTune.
That does not surprise me that RIP Control is so far off the mark from the default. The string is so far off the mark from a typical multi, for some it is great and others it is terrible.
