Easy to string even for me as a stringing novice.
Played exclusively on clay court. I am hitting aggressively.
Besides the lack of durability, this string provides good control and power and decent comfort.

Due to arm problems I tried a lot of strings. I used to play Alu Power before but it hurt my arm. The Head feels very stiff, feel is okay, and comfort is much better compared to the Alu Power.
Due to the lack of durability (strung 2 times by a pro stringer, once by myself, and the string always broke within one match), however, I cannot recommend this string.

No problems during stringing.
Played indoors on clay and carpet with Wilson Tour and Head ATP balls.
Used as a cross string in combination with Polystar Energy 1.25 and Solinco Outlast 17 mains.
Both combos played very well in the beginning, with good control and touch, comparable to my default cross string (Mantis Comfort Synthetic).
However during the second session both combos lost their good characteristics, probably due to tension loss. The string bed got springy and I totally lost ball control. I did not have this effect with the Mantis Comfort Synthetic as a cross which I played in parallel.
My search for a cross string that will last around 4 hours and still provides good playability continues...

Stringing was no problem. I originally planned to use this string in a full job to get best comfort but the durability turned out to be too short and I don't want to use a larger diameter than 1.24mm.

Power and control are quite good. The string didn't show any special spin characteristics. Comfort is also good, the elasticity helps also in extreme situations when you're under pressure.

Tension stability is not that bad, the DT value stayed within an acceptable range during the 3 hours until it broke. This should be sufficient for the clay court season. The string movement is rather due to the structured surface than due to tension loss.

I will probably keep using it as a cross string in combination with poly mains.

Pure average string. Strings moved around already after a short time, although my racquet has a dense string pattern.
