The string moves a lot. It provides great comfort and nice playability. But it definitely lacks durability...
Before, I played the hybrid Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 1.25 / VS Team 1.30, which played significantly better (except comfort). It provided all characteristics that I need. And the X-One Biphase is just too expensive for a lifetime of 1.5 weeks. If you invest a few euros more you get the hybrid.

It was easy to string. It had excellent power and I still had no problems with control. It was outstanding for volleys. Comfort was comparable to natural gut. I thought it was a bit more crisp than NRG and NXT but still maintained the great comfort. It had adequate spin but I have played with strings that generate better spin.

No problems during stringing. Sometimes a bit tedious at the grommet holes as with all multifilaments. Played indoors on Bros Slide and on clay with Tretorn Micro-X and Wilson US Open balls.
Great string: excellent comfort and liveliness. Definitely competes with NXT.

Finally a string that can compete with the NXT in terms of liveliness and pop. Without measuring I would rate the tension stability and control a bit less than the NXT. I especially noticed that on power shots. Despite the spin potential was higher due to the thinner gauge.
Unfortunately the X-One Biphase is yet a bit more expensive than the NXT.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (13 hrs.)
Easy to string (pre-stretching is recommended). Played indoors on carpet. Highly recommendable, however it is not suitable for heavy topspin players since it will be too expensive in the long run - I would rather recommend the 1.30 mm version in this case.
Great feel - among the best on the multifilament market.

Compared to the 1.30 mm version I could produce better spin but the trade-off was decreased durability.
