Not so easy to string due to the twisted shape. Played on a Babolat Pure Drive. Great spin, control and power! Good comfort. Only the durability is lacking a bit with the 1.17 mm version. Otherwise a great string!

Outdoor hard court, Wilson balls. This string excels in all departments for me except comfort, after about 2 months hitting with it (restring every 3-4 weeks or 4 sessions) suddenly the tennis elbow came. That's how I ended my relationship with it, otherwise it was truly honeymoon period.
All Signum strings seem to hurt my arm no matter how much I liked it, they did everything nicely till they hurt.

Both of them gave me elbow pain, which never happened even with Luxilon strings.

Played on clay court during summer 2015.
Concerning durability there are two factors to consider:
1) Freshly strung, the string provides extreme grip on the ball due to the 7 sided profile.
2) after 10 +/- 2 hours, the profile wears smooth and the string loses its spin potential; it continues to play average for a long time until it breaks

In order to get good power, I'd recommend to string at 21/22 kg. Don't string too tight or you will completely lack power.
There is no string movement throughout the entire life of the string. Even when you hit with heavy topspin. That's excellent.
If you're a hard hitter you will like this string. IMHO this string requires you to have a hard stroke.

Control is very good on serves and from the baseline.

My forehand grip is similar to Andy Murray's, but I had to open it a bit as the string lost its profile.

Indoors the string lasts me forever, so the 1.17 mm gauge is perfect and you don't need to go for a thicker version.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
A fine string with nice playability. Feel is nice and crisp, and control is good due to the high level of spin this string generates. Durability is very low. In my racquet, I would need to use a thicker gauge to be able to use the string all the time.
Satisfied? not sure
Compared to:
Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 16L

Overall better playability than Alu Power, most likely due to its fineness. Durability however, is no match for the Alu Power.

Stringing is poor. Too tight and rotate. String is too tight.
