This is a relatively stiff hybrid. Thus I would recommend to string at least 4 lbs softer. Due to the excellent control and tension stability, there is no compromise.
The string provides consistent playing characteristics, and the string becomes quite lively within the last 30 minutes before it breaks, however then you also get significant string movement.

The Plasma HEXtreme has a similar cross-section as the Tecnifibre, but they play different. The Signum Pro provides much better control, both on hard and soft strokes. On the other hand, the Tecnifibre provides much better power and comfort.
Both strings are great for spin players, and your choice depends on your preference of power/comfort or control.

Got it as a free promotional from a company I get my strings from. Don't usually go for a hexagonal string because the grip normally wears out after 2-3 hours of play. Easy to string and was similar to non hexagonal but with a bit more spin and lacking some touch. After 4 hours the string kept its shape. Recommend it.

This string is awesome. One of the first times I have dabbled with an 18g string, and cannot believe how well it is holding up. I have played about 9 hours, and the strings have not moved or broken. I hybrid this racquet with MSV Focus Hex 17 on the crosses and it is one of the nicest feeling racquets I have hit with. Easy to string with, easy on the arm for a poly, with no sacrifice of power, tension loss, or durability. I am probably going to get a reel of this, but maybe in a 17.

All around a better string than the Big Banger Ace 18. Holds tension amazing, and has pinpoint control. Very soft for a polyester, and feels great when really getting into a shot, or pulling off on one and slipping in a drop shot...

Very much spin, better reactivity and power in comparison to all HEXtreme. After 4-5 hours of intense game decrease of tension and performance.
