This string plays unbelievable on Wilson nSix-One 95 18x20 stringbed. Be sure to string it AT LEAST 5% below your usual poly tension, preferrably 10% (as on the packaging). Tension maintenance is geat, control is unbelievable, extremely easy on the arm. It seems to break a bit and create something like sausage links when fierce off center shots are hit, but the impact on the tension is unnoticable. I will stick with this string for quite awhile, do not recommend it to people that use non-pro racquets as the power will be just uncontrollable.

I compared it to my previous string on the Wilson nSix-One 95 18x20, a Tecnifibre NGR2 16 gauge. The Poly Plasma just lacks in the spin department (no gel-like surface to bite the ball) but the amount of spin it can generate is still plentyful. There is so much more power and above all, it is extremely easy on the arm: now I can play 8 hours on weekends without any aches in my forearm at all. That was a total surprise to me.

What a waste of money. I can see why this string is so cheap. It's like playing with a wet sponge. Had it taken out and replaced in the first week. Don't bother.

Have played in past with Babolat X-Cel Premium which is far better. Have now got Tecnifibre X-One, loads better than the Signum Pro Poly Plasma.

Played for approx. 4 hours indoors on carpet. Very easy to string. I normally play multifilaments due to my sensitive arm. But I still wanted to try this "orange wonder".
Result: It played amazingly crispy and precise in my Head LM Instinct. The string provides great feedback, you instantly know whether you had a clean hit or not. Average spin and power (maybe I should have strung softer?). Extremely good tension stability. Great control string for hard hitting advanced players. For me the Plasma is a bit too stiff. I had arm problems quite soon (which is the case with every poly for me). So overall this is a great string but unfortunately not suitable for me due to my sensitive arm.
