This string is for the spin potential. It's got a solid feel and decent power but the spin is amazing due to the shape. It does notch some and though it doesn't break easily the tension does weaken over time.

Normal stringing behavior for a textured string.
Played mainly indoors on carpet with Wilson Australian Open and Wilson Tour balls.
I was about to think that the Black Code was a softer poly but the next off-center hit proved me wrong.
Quite decent string from my point of view, nice spin and good control. Power is on a moderate level.
Due to the price different I would not buy the Tecnifibre Black Code 1.24 because the Pro's Pro Blackout comes at 20% of the price.

The direct comparison relates to the Pro's Pro Blackout. I could not detect any difference between the two strings. I used them in parallel on two frames and would not have been able to tell which one I'm using if I hadn't marked them. Even the tension loss which I tracked with the RacquetTune app was in line.

Very good string for players who hit with spin but suffer from arm problems. Less power compared to the Signum Pro Tornado, and a bit softer with better touch. Suitable especially for powerful frames.

Despite the pentagonal shape, Black Code did not satisfy me with regards to spin. However, it held the tension exceptionally well. I prefer Savage Black because I could generate more spin with it.

I was very comfortable with my new string, color and shape (pentagonal) so I bought a 12m set first and it took me like 2 hours to break it. I bought a reel (200m) and every 1.5-2 hours of play it broke, just in the center, so it was strung okay. Anyhow good feel, comfort, and good control, but no lasting a long time...

I used Tecnifibre Pro RedCode and it is a good string. I wanted to try this new string, but after 1.5 hours of play it broke, every single time, for 15 times (I bought an entire reel). So good string but broke too fast. Not good for my wallet.
