I can only confirm what the other testers have written so far. I've been playing this string for two weeks now, very nice in the beginning. But then the tension dropped so much that I totally lost control. The string just felt spongy. I cannot recommend it.

58/58 lbs Wilson Triad T-3 (MP, 16/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
This string is dull feeling because it is very good at absorbing shock from misshits. It has much better durability than Tecnifibre E-Matrix 16 multifilament string because the filaments are ribbon and are glued together with urethane resin making them less sucseptible to fraying. They do not move as much as Gamma TNT because they are wire like and take a set in shape that tends to hold them in place. The cross strings will always end up with lower tension because this set in shape hinders the string from sliding across the main strings when tensioning the string. This string has the shock absorption of natural gut but lacks the feel. Even though it does not feel powerful most power is generated by the racquet and stroke dynamics and power from the string is a minority factor.

Had this in a demo for a week, so can't comment on durability or tension maintenance so much, but it seemed OK. Did not like these too much at all, could never get into a groove with it. Very powerful strings, good for serves, but I couldn't control my shots from the baseline so much. Poor spin, poor control and poor touch. I wouldn't recommend this string.

Comparison to hybrid of Black Code 17 and X-One Biphase 17. Not much of a comparison. Black Code/X-One takes it down in almost every category.

Very nice string!
Easy to string, especially since there is no poly in this hybrid combination.
The RIP Control in the mains provides decent spin and confidence. I especially liked my kick serves with the IntelliString. Control was also good, but power was dominant. Unfortunately there was a lot of string movement, and I noticed that a lot of felt was taken up by the cross strings.
Overall a good hybrid with good durability and power.

Played during summer outdoors on clay as well as during winter indoors on carpet.
The string plays extremely nice and provides very good spin due to its texture. Durability is very good, especially for someone like me who hits with heavy topspin. The string provides sufficient power and good tension stability.
