I strung it at relatively low tension and was surprised by the good control even at this low tension.
The string doesn't have a real weakness. There are better strings of course, but not in this price category.
The string provides a crispy feel and one has the impression that the string does what you want. Whatever you put in will also come out.
Stringing was no problem either. The string glides easily through the mains.
The strings started to move after around 6 hours of play. However I hit with heavy topspin, so string movement should be less for players with rather flat strokes. After 6-7 hours of play the playability had dropped and the control had decreased.

For me, Luxilon Big Bancer Ace 18 is one of the best monofilaments.
Poly Plasma is also very good and it's cheaper than the Luxilon.

Tester man-walking (3), 2006-07-20  registered Residence: Italy male recreational player, hard strokes with heavy spin, allround game

The main string quality is its high dynamic power and feel, it gives great confidence on your strokes, power is very good (might be due to the thin gauge, of course) but not explosive on dense pattern racquets.
Definitely a string for open patterns.
Good comfort despite the string firmness, that was a little surprise.
The only bad thing of this string is that, despite its tension maintenance qualities (right in normal conditions), it suffers repeated temperature variations and/or hard hitting, then it starts losing its ball cupping property and turns DEAD and unplayable (last time in about 10 hours for me).
