Comments: Horrible string. Never get it. The strings move every time you hit the ball and it's so annoying.
From: Anon, 9/12

Comments: Strung this on my microgel prestige mid as of August 25,2009, and these strings moved after 20 mins of playing... Recommended to those who are 2.5-3.5 Level Players, not recommended to 4.0+..* PS: I broke them the same day...

Comments: Don't like it. Has no life. Played first game and will be back to Rip Control.

Comments: I strung this 60lbs with 1.25mm TopSpin Cyberflash in the mains and they frayed within 30 minutes of match play and broke within 3 hours.

Comments: I was using Luxilon Big Banger Rough and that string died after two weeks so I tried these today. I got a lot of pop and control.

Comments: I used the FXP Control on my Head Liquidmetal Radical at 60lbs and 62 lbs and found the strings very stiff and hard. I was disappointed. I might be getting my tension wrong, but it was way too stiff for my taste. Maybe different racquets would respond differently, I don't know.

Comments: This string has incredible power and comfort! The groundstrokes were great thanks to the extra spin. The only problem was the second serve. The power made my second serve a bit too powerful. I strung at 57lbs. I would recommend a higher string tension.
From: Heano. 1/08

Comments: The first time I used this string it broke on the second day of hitting. I decided to give it another try, and the same thing happened. The outer shell protecting the core will crack, and fraying begins around two hours of play. The string lasts about 5 to 6 hours on average, and I managed to break 2 cross strings at the same time. The racquet I used was only strung at 58lbs, so there was no premature breakage due to excessive tension. I rate the playability a 5 and the durability a 3 on a 10-point scale.
From: Mike, Walnut Creek, CA, USA. 12/07

Comments: Excellent playability, average durability (2-3 weeks), slightly less spin but definitely with more consistent depth-all in all a very good synthetic.
From: Gregor, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. 11/07

Comments: Very comfortable string with some extra pop and good control. However, outer coating deteriorates quickly followed by fraying and breakage. The least durable strings I have ever used.
From: Tony, L.A., CA, USA. 10/07

Comments: I found this string to be extraordinarily durable. My pro recommended it because I was breaking strings every three weeks. My first set of FXP Power 16 got me through the whole indoor season, which amazed me. Playability is also excellent--good spin and feel.
From: Len, IN, USA, 03/07

Comments: Excellent playability. Miserable endurance. Tension-carrying filaments are poorly protected under a thin outer wrap with a friction succeptible coating. String and string friction from play quickly cuts through the coating and outer wrap, and then the unprotected central filaments fray and fail with amazing speed.
