The Poly Plasma was the first string from Signum Pro I tested on clay, as well as the Poly Plasma Pure. Therefore my racket was strung up with 50.7 lbs in the mains and with 48.5 lbs in the crosses (4 knots) on a GAMMA X-Els. Because it is a very soft co-polyester string, stringing is really comfortable.

All I can say is, that Poly Plasma is a true allrounder. Every stroke on the ball really makes you happy. No matter if youre hitting from the baseline, the net, the return or the serve. It offers a great touch, a very good control, a high spin potential and is also extremely easy on the arm. Had I not known better I wouldn't have believed that it was a monofilament string.

Although I played over 4.5 hours I didn't notice any loss of tension. Furthermore, no notches in the stringbed were visible, so this factor speaks for a great durability.

And anyone who thinks that the Poly Plasma with its excellent playing characteristics is a high-priced string is luckily wrong. Since the string is significantly cheaper than the comparable polyester strings from other manufacturers, the price/performance ratio is at very good level.


Conclusion:
The Signum Pro Poly Plasma is a great string for every type of player, whether young or old. Everyone should test it. And if you do not like the color, you just go for the Poly Plasma Pure. Between the two strings I couldn't see any difference in the game, except for the color.

Easy to string. Almost no stretch when applying tension. Friction when pulling the crosses seemed a bit higher compared to other polys.

The string was rather low-powered, but I didn't mind. It still played lively and provided very good control at the same time. Feel was great and despite the low tension the balls did not scatter. Normally I don't have arm problems, however my shoulder hurt a bit when playing with this string. But I cannot tell whether this was due to the string or another circumstance.
Spin was rather average for a poly. After approx. 4 hours of play the strings started to move slightly.

I could not detect a significant tension loss throughout the test. But I didn't measure it.

Played outdoors at around 15°C and rather humid conditions.

Overall a good control-oriented string with good touch. I can recommend it.
