I needed to try one of the more expensive strings. I didn't put high expectations on feel, but after a short time you get used to the different feel of the string and despite the stiffness of the string I was amazed by the control, power, and feel it provides. This might also be due to the fact that I have previously been playing mainly cheaper strings like Kirschbaum, Polystar, Polymono...
I didn't rate the durability because the strings broke at a frame hit. Nevertheless I can say that this string stays "fresh" for a longer time than others. If you can afford it, you should definitely try this string!

Hits ok, but feels like you are Hacksaw Jim Duggan out there, swinging around a 2x4. Shots feel like mis-hits, and the pop is way muted; if you like the sweet sound the ball makes upon impact, pass this string on by. Next time I'm trying the Ace 18!

Great control and power and still lots of feel. At first I was a bit annoyed that I bought this string because I felt pain in the arm after the first match. I had never had arm problems before, even though stringing at 30-32 kg. But after the 2nd and 3rd match the pain was gone. I will use this string only from now on.

I was skeptical that I would like this string before playing with it. But after two matches, I was pretty impressed with the performance of this string. This was my first experience with a string from the Luxilon line. Ultimately, I feel that this is a worthwhile string to play with, if you are willing to pay the price. The only negative aspect in this string would be in the stringing of it. I did not enjoy stringing my racquet with this string. I now understand why my local tennis shop looks down on this string. Before I started to string my own racquets, the professional stringer in my community did not encourage trying out this string because of the difficulty of stringing it. I on the other hand will play with this string again.
