In summary, way too expensive for what you get.

Alright from the baseline, but really poor for volleys. After 10-15 hours it doesn't break, but playability really decreases.

Average string at a very high price.

SPPP is a better string at half the price, in my opinion. Yes, the Ti-Mo LASTS longer, but playability is crap at that time.

If you are thinking about this string, I wholeheartedly recommend Topspin Cyberflash / Cyber Blue. It's better in just about every category at half the price.

It's a good string for about 7 hours of its life. Personally, I _HATE_ strings which I have to move around after every point, and this is certainly one of them. Feel and power are great, but these do begin to fray after only an hour or two on the court. If you don't care about tension stability and durability, this is one of the finest strings I've tried in all the other categories. A funny fact - it broke not while playing, but when my racquet was sitting in the bag the next day.

It broke very abruptly after a relatively short time (for me) when barely any notching was visible. It happened on a mishit serve, so perhaps I am to blame.

The problem with this string for me were the volleys. This is BY FAR the worst string I've tried for volleying - it was hopeless. This is an awesome string from the baseline with good control, decent pop, and excellent precision, and just enough spin potential to keep balls in. If you are a baseliner, I can wholeheartedly recommend this string.

I enjoy coming to net, so this string isn't for me. Perhaps I will give it a shot as a hybrid.

I currently have Topspin Cyber Flash and I like that string way better. It's just as good from the baseline and I have absolutely no problem volleying with it.

After around 10 hours the string became quite unplayable due to tension loss. Until then, it was a pretty decent string. It wasn't even close to breaking, but it lost all the spin and crispiness that it originally had. One of the poorest strings I have tried, no doubt due to tension stability. Not recommended.
