I've played the string twice for a total 3 hours so far and I'm very happy. I had very good control and previously unmatched spin on my serve and forehand. Cannot say much about the tension stability in this short period (didn't notice any drop so far), neither can I rate the durability. No string movement so far. Overall great string!

I've been stringing since 1983, also at ATP tournaments, and this is simply the best string, only high quality natural gut is better.

What I can say about the durability is that I've been playing the string for one month now and it is still fine. It provides gread control, but on the other hand, since it is a stiff string, it does not provide as much feel as other strings. Overall highly recommendable!

One thing I have noticed about this string is that it is a bit sensitive to temperature. When it gets cool or cold outside I need to have a couple of sticks about 5 lbs looser ready to go depending on how cold it is.
If it's 70 to 100 degrees out, 57lbs or a couple pounds above mid tension seems to work ok for me but when it turns cool or cold, the string gets dead and the ball just doesn't want to go. That may be noticeable with almost any string but even more so with this stuff! I usually drop the tension about 5 lbs and blend in Alu Power Rough on the crosses. That seems to soften it up enough to get back in the zone of a somewhat normal reaction when the ball is struck. BB Alu Touch is another hybrid option that has an even softer feel for the cold weather but when it warms up it's back to regular Alu for me! The pop is great and when the ball eggs out from heavy top or slice, nothing compares to it. The BB Alu Rough does have better touch on volleys but doesn't have as much pop or quite the durability of regular Alu.
