n.a.
I tried it with Prince O3 Tour MP and Head Prestige Tour 660 (Classic). Firstly, I must say that my arm is very sensitive, therefore I avoid play with Co-Poly, unless I read it's soft. OK. This string is a lot softer than other polys I played with, RPM BLAST and OCHO, but it is still a poly. Both racquets have low flex rating, so I imagine it feels much worse with a stiff racquet... Nevertheless, if you can stand the pain, at full bed, the control is very nice and also the power and the amount of spin. After about 30 minutes I felt it's too much for me and switched to my other racquet. But few days after I played a whole hour with it and felt stiff but tolerable. Although tension was quite low, 45/43, I could hit full strokes with confidence and spin. At net it was amazing. Very precise with flat shots. With Prince O3 as cross (syngut main), feel was very good, best combo for TE, but too much power. 60/50. As a main, much more stiff but control was very good, and I felt I could hit very hard without risking long shots. Spin was great. No floaters. Again, 60/50. Stringing this string is quite fun at MAINS, but can be a bit tedious at CROSS.
Update: at 53 as a cross with syngut as main was very good! Nice on arm, and good power and control.

The string maintains its characteristics quite long and is more than sufficient for practice play.
I am reviewing the new version of this string here. The old version was a bit softer and more comfortable and powerful. But it had horrible tension maintenance. The new version is dark red, while the old version was light red.
Excellent string for the price!

Compared to the Black Force, the Red Devil provides better durability and comfort. The Black Force gets extremely stiff and wire-like after 2-3 hours of play. It loses all its power after that time.

It's very similar to Signum Pro Poly Plasma. Has more power and less feel and is more stiff. No big differences.

Very thin string. Good feel! This soft poly is less crisp compared to the SPPP.

I finally cut out the Red Devil after approx. 8 hours of play. I didn't expect it to last that long but my 18x20 string pattern seems to facilitate durability.
No problems during stringing.
When freshly strung the Red Devil played really nice, but after 6-8 hours it became mushy and uncontrollable for me. Comfort is great for a poly, and thus I might try it again as a cross string in combination with Pro's Pro Cyber Power or Plus Power. As a full job I would not recommend it due to the lack of tension stability.
