Very easy to string, also tying knots was easy.
The first two to three hours this string is awesome. Great touch and fantastic power. But then its characteristics decline significantly. It still plays solid but not as excellent as in the beginning. Control is consistent on a high levvel. I cannot confirm a lack of comfort, but I am not very sensitive in this regard. Great durability and tension stability.
It's a pity that the performance drops so quickly, especially when considering the price...

Hey guys,
I am going to make it quick on this review and only report on characteristics I have a wholly different opinion than other reviewers.
Strung on Head Youtek IG Prestige MP - 4 knots - 51/51 lbs. Not by myself.
Durability: Excellent. 10 hours and still no notching. Feels like within the first hour.
Power: I have to disagree with many reviewers on the power aspect. It is the most low powered string in 1.25 I have tested. Even for me, being a fan of low powered strings and rackets it is pretty low.
Control: Control is also excellent. Nice control of depth.
Touch: Touch is not that good. The rigid and inflexible string bed does not allow the touchiest kind of shots.
Comfort: I don't have any problems with that. I think it's even more comfortable than the "modern" RPM Blast.
Spin: It is ok but far from exceptional.
Tension maintenance: The tension maintenance seems excellent. As mentioned it plays identically to the first hour. No computerized data.

Wrap-up: I am mostly satisfied. I don't know how much sense it would make to lower the tension to get more power out of this string. Better try a higher powered string.
Maybe some time in the future I will give it a go with a lower tension. It is hard to bear with the missing touch!

Plays very nice, especially when freshly strung. Great spin for a round poly. Very good control even when strung at a low tension.

I'm still trying this string. But I'm having enormous dificulty to understand the amount of power or the type of swing I have to do in order to keep the ball inside the court. I couldn't serve inside the square in my first attempts! The ball had its own desire, and always landed behind the lines... I had better luck after 3 hours, now I know how to serve. It looks I must do the right swing and put lots of spin. The string looks to me really explosive.
