Compared to the 1.25 mm version this one lacked power and touch for me. It felt quite stiff. Thus I'd recommend the 1.25 mm version as it works better for me in all categories.

Played indoors and outdoors on clay. I liked it better indoors, but overall it is a heavy, solid and stiff string that requires a fast powerful swing. Definitely not a string for players with arm problems. But if you hit a clean ball, this string will perform nice, from serves to drop shots.
It takes a bit of getting used to since it is so stiff. Not really my preferred type of string but it was worth a test. Will not use it in the near future though.
If you are looking for a string that supports an aggressive powerful game and don't have a sensitive arm, this string could be an alternative.

Signum Pro Tornado
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Much stiffer than the Signum Pro Tornado so you have to hit harder. Also the performance will drop more quickly and it feels board-like. Thus I prefer the Signum Pro Tornado because it is softer and more powerful and provides better control and feel on all shots. Serves are especially precise and powerful. The Pro RedCode is more demanding than other strings.

As I live in Brazil, it was very hot and humid as always. I played with this string on hard court and clay. I have played with Luxilon Timo 1.10 for the last five years (just love this string), but very recently my arm and shoulder couldn't take it anymore, so I decided to test the Pro RedCode. With this string I gained a lot of control, so I could hit even harder. Clearly with this string my game was better, but sadly the feel and comfort were even worse.
Summarizing: This is the best string for power and control I ever tested, but I would recommend only if you are 20 years old and strong as a bull.

Felt more power and control than with the Babolat RPM Blast, but the Pro RedCode is just too hard on the arm and shoulder. So it is a much better string if can handle it. I could not!

Easy to string. Excellent control and precision. Despite the high tension and the heavy frame I did not have any arm problems.
