Due to the thin gauge it is certainly not for everyone. I was quite surprised by the relatively good durability. The stringbed feels quite stiff off the stringer - for me just great. It started to fray after approx. 3 hours of play but maintained its characteristics until it snapped. The string provides outstanding power with very good control. If it wasn't that expensive it would be my standard string. Next I will try the Wilson NXT Tour 1.21 which I'm looking forward to. I'll string another frame with the Wilson Sensation to compare with.

No problems during stringing. Only little ghosting. Played indoors on carpet with Head No.1 balls. A typical Tecnifibre quality string. Considering the diameter, I would say the durability is average. The string provides a rather stiff feel. Interestingly the cross strings start to fray quickly, which I don't see with other strings.

According to Tecnifibre, this string is identical to the X-tra Dynamic, but sold under the name NRG2 in the USA. However compared to the X-tra Dynamic 1.28 which I've tested previously, the NRG2 1.18 felt much stiffer. Overall the playability is the same.
