Played in spring, some wind, some rain, some sunshine on an outdoor hard court. If you're looking for a durable all round string suited more for serve and volley, or have flatter strokes, this is a very good string.
Although it is a string I won't buy again (as I do prefer the 1.20mm version) I will keep them in the racquet until they give.

The 1.30mm compared to the thinner 1.20mm is a more durable string that in my opinion doesn't have enough trade off to make it worth buying over its thinner version. The loss in control and spin (power wasn't much of a problem for me) isn't worth the extra hitting time you'd get. Head RIP Control is a pretty durable string for me as I do tend to change string after a month or two anyhow; the Head RIP Control 1.20mm a string I will be buying agan, but not the 1.30mm.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (7 hrs.) n.a.
Good string. Expensive. Breaks quickly. Since I use Wilson Steam 99S it's not worth it. Also I put 7 hours of durability but because I use Wilson Steam the strings break quickly. For any other racket the strings would last longer.
