This is Wilson's more control-oriented version of the popular Sensation string! Sensation Control is an arm-friendly multifilament, ideal for all levels and styles of players looking for the playability of a natural gut but who don't want to break the bank. Compared to regular Sensation, Sensation Control has added LCP Ribbons in its construction, making it slightly stiffer than regular Sensation. This means it's going to feel a little more muted and have more control. It's a great update to Sensation for the big-hitting modern game!

Comments: Strung this at 56lbs (one pound off my normal tension) in a Blade98 (18/20). Initial feel was a tad stiff as compared to the standard Sensation string. About 6 hours into playtime the string is starting to loosen up a tad and feels quite responsive. Very limited string movement and nice control on the ball. If you considering stringing your 98sq or smaller frame you may want to drop 2 lbs off your normal tension to test.

Comments: I hit the ball hard and flat, this string is perfect for my game. The string lives up to its name, great control for my flat balls and slice serves are a dream. I found I could place my serve anywhere I wanted particularly with my slice. Really comfortable on ball impact, easy on the arm. Fantastic string and at the price, you can't do any better.

Comments: This is an excellent string for power hitters. It's so-so for spin but flat shots can be hit like bullets. The string does move around a lot but not so much that you have to constantly re-align it. With my old Hurricane I'd been struggling to put away mid-court balls, but this Wilson string really let's me rip the ball from inside the service line. It's my new favorite cross string!

Comments: Just a fantastic string. I never have been a fan of 16g strings, but since this doesn't come in any other gauge, I had no choice. I was very impressed with this string. The LCP wrap is subtle but makes a big difference. Unlike regular multis, you can really feel these strings grip the ball. And they don't feel like a trampoline. Very comfortable, good power, and great spin/control. Not super durable, but I don't expect that from a multi so no points taken off for that.
