Very interesting string with enormous dampening characteristics. Despite the soft feedback it does not feel dead or spongy, but provided decent power and liveliness instead.
The string provided good spin in all variants. Durability is average on my scale.
If you are looking for a soft comfortable poly of the new generation, you should definitely consider this string!
I'm curious of the bicolor strings play like this white poly.

The Sonic Pro Edge does not have much in common with the classic Sonic Pro. The color is a bit lighter, rather dark grey, while the Sonic Pro is really black. The Sonic Pro is soft and comfortable while the Edge is stiff and wire-like. The sweetspot seems smaller with the Edge.
I didn't like the feedback either, much too stiff. I even cut it out after 2 hours because I could not find much positive about it.

No longer comparable with today's standard. When it was launched it was probably a long lasting poly that had its fans. Played like the Polystar Classic but a bit tighter.

Could be strung 2 lbs lower. A highly competitive multifilament with good spin potential and control. Rather low-powered. Touch was okay but had expected a softer touch. Not a multifilament for a sensitive arm.

My clients like this string, and they're right. A multifilament with nice feel and very good power. Comfort left nothing to desire! Very good allround multifilament and a good value too!

Did not like the feedback of this string at all. The sweetspot seemed so small I could hardly hit a clean ball. Maybe I have to try it like Evgeny Korolev at 18 kg... maybe then the performance is better. At 24/25 kg it is not playable for me, unfortunately.

I was positively surprised by this string. It has a nice comfortable feel on impact, but does not feel dead. Power is quite high, control is very good. I really loved the touch I had with this string! Did not take any getting used to and the string gave me lots of confidence. Highly recommendable!

Tried the blue version this time.
A competitive but nice playing string! Good spin potential and unique feedback as with the other silicone coated strings from the RPM family. The RPM Team also has a special sound on impact, especially on the first serve.

Ambitious multifilament! Even after some time of play there was no string movement which is quite unusual for a multifilament! Spin was excellent, power was sufficient. Had good control. This multifilament does not focus on touch but rather on competition. It was the first multifilament for me that played similar to a poly in terms of spin, control and snapback, but still provided typical multifilament feel. This is truly a new generation multifilament. Definitely worth a try. Thanks to Tecnifibre for the sample!
