The bottom line: if you do not hit in the center of the string bed 9/10 times, then this string will break your arm (even if you use a soft string as a hybrid).
Even though people say this string gives you "power", the string actually feels dead and lends very little power. However, you get so much spin and control from this string that you can swing as hard as you want and the ball will dip into the court more times than not.

If this string wasn't so stiff on the arm, it would be my no. 1 string of choice.

Played indoors on clay court with Head ATP balls.
Impressive string regarding spin and control but not comfortable at all Ö Makes the sweet spot very small and demanding very precise strokes!
The string changed after 6 hours of play and become somehow dull.
Iíll go back to a hybrid with soft poly as crosses - Luxilon Monotec Supersense or Iíll try Luxilon M2 Pro.
