Fabulous string! The Black Code was easy to string, not much recoil memory.
I was really convinced by the tremendous power and control at the same time, so all my shots went near the baseline. I also enjoyed the comfort, which I think is even better than with Topspin Cyber Blue, and the spin potential of this string. IMHO a great string, and despite the high price I will consider switching to it.
I'd also recommend to string the Black Code 1-2 kp higher compared to other polys.

Probably the best string at the moment for tournament play, for players playing with lots of topspin.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung at 25/25 kg in one piece. No problems during stringing. Normal stretch for a poly.
Played outdoors on clay with Dunlop Fort TP balls.
Durability is good and sufficient for me. Polys at this gauge hardly break on me.
The string provided good power on the DNX9. Depth control as well as angle shots work very well. Despite the high power, control is not sacrificed. Power and control are well balanced.
The string provides very good and clear feedback. Comfort is good for a poly, I didn't have any problems. The string grabs the ball really well, I really liked the spin potential.
Conclusion: Except for tension stability, this string is above average and does not have any weakness. It plays really nice.

Very good string, solid, stable and generate much spin. It's similar to MSV Focus Hex, but Black Code is more comfortable (less vibrations) and better power. Not only the feel is exceptional, but overall the Tecnifibre Black Code is one of top strings currently on the market.
The higher price is not justified to 100%.

I'm using the Black Code in the mains in combination with SPPP 1.23 crosses. This blend of a crisp topspin string that provides lots of power with the slightly softer SPPP results is perfect for me. Great power and spin. The Black Code provides awesome grip which enables you to return the lowest slice offensively.
I'm stringing this hybrid 1 kg higher, otherwise the control would not be sufficient.
I'm also playing a hybrid of SPPP and Head FXP frequently, but the Black Code / SPPP combo will remain my standard on the long term.
