This is a great string indeed. Extremely powerful and great control/consistency... but, this is not suitable for a net player. The feel and touch aspect is simply not good enough. I've hit my strongest groundstrokes ever and with great precision with this string; simultaneously, my touch shots around the net have suffered a lot. I don't know if it's related to the string but a while after switching to this string the inside of my elbow seems to have become sore. This had never happened before.
To demonstrate the power aspect: I normally play with a Völkl C-10 98 sq.in. / Tecnifibre NRG2 setup at 55 lbs. The X-One Biphase was strung on my C-10 93 sq.in. at just over 60 lbs. Despite much higher string tension and the smaller headsize, my groundstrokes were comparatively explosive, I never imagined I could hit so hard!
If it offered greater feel and touch at the net, and if my net game hadn't suffered, this could be the perfect string, at least next to natural gut. Next time I will seek an alternative string.

It's a good string for about 7 hours of its life. Personally, I _HATE_ strings which I have to move around after every point, and this is certainly one of them. Feel and power are great, but these do begin to fray after only an hour or two on the court. If you don't care about tension stability and durability, this is one of the finest strings I've tried in all the other categories. A funny fact - it broke not while playing, but when my racquet was sitting in the bag the next day.

No problems during stringing. Manual pre-stretch. The string was greasy and elastic. The last two crosses were strung 2 kg higher.

The string left a very positive impression. Nice power and control. The string provided exceptional slice.
Depth control was very good. Dwell time seemed increased. Nice touch on drop shots and lobs. Good control also on balls that I reached too late.
The string movement was significantly less that with the Pacific Space Power TX, but it was still evident.
I think the string will last 1-2 hours longer than the Pacific.

Overall a great string. Only slight differences from the Pacific Space Power TX, maybe a bit less control.

Great feel similar to natural gut. This string is not only recommendable for hybrids, but it's also a weapon on its own. Highly recommendable also for players with arm problems.
