I have used this string a lot and I like how it performs and plays. It is a very good feeling string and I like the large amount of spin I can generate from it. My only problem is that it is too expensive and tension falls quickly. Usually I will break the string before the tension falls too much, but it becomes expensive to restring too much.

Excellent string that has been the benchmark for other polys for some time. While it is still a solid string I feel that other companies are producing comparable strings for much lower prices, as well as textured strings that play similarly but provide better spin.

Played on clay with new Dunlop Fort Tournament balls.
Basically a great string. Great spin, power, control, and feel. Great feedback on almost all strokes. Only problem is the lack of comfort - every (!) stroke hurt my arm. After one hour I cut out the strings and used it only as a hybrid in the mains with my standard poly in the crosses. Playability of the hybrid was OK, and no more arm problems. Still spin and power were above average.
I was a bit disappointed by the durability. After 4 hours the strings started to move, and broke after 5 hours. Even the Rip Control lasts longer...
Conclusion: Expensive string with great characteristics, however not for everyone. I personally could use it again in a hybrid.
