I tried this string in different ways, first of all using an ATW 55 lbs... and the result is great, but I reached the best when I used Black Code in the mains and natural gut in the crosses, my racquet became powerful and provided great precision.

No problems during stringing. Played on clay. The best string I've ever played. You really feel that you have a power advantage over your opponent. Additionaly the string lasts long and maintains its tension extremely well. Strong buy!

Two very similar strings, with the Tecnifibre providing better comfort and a bit better power. The higher price is definitely justified,

Have been playing with this string in a hybrid of Black Code 17 mains and Pro Supex Spiral Flex 16 crosses for almost 3 months now and it is positively the best combo I've tried, and I've tried a lot.

This is a nice new sting with some unique characteristics about it. It does take a little getting used to but after that it is about the best poly on the market currently IMO.

Played outdoors on clay court at 25°C. Easy to string, much better than Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power, it's more elastic and comfortable if we compare also to Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour. The string has good power, sufficient control (you have to string 2 lbs higher than other polys), good feel and an incredible comfort. I have arm problems and I had abandoned the idea to use poly strings... but the comfort of the Black Code made me change my mind! Due to the pentagonal shape I expected more spin. Also the string movement is too much, you have to straighten the strings quite frequently (always compared to other polys). I tried a hybrid with Tecnifibre TGV and NRG2 16... much better with TGV!

This string was really really soft for a poly. I found that it had way too much power for my game - I couldnt keep my forehands from going long unless I slowed down my stroke. I normally hit with Ashaway Monogut 17 with Gosen OG Sheep Micro 17 and I get a lot more control with that as I can swing hard and still have it go in consistently. Overall I'm sure people will love this string but it just had too much power, not enough control, and I didn't really care for the feel of the string because it just felt so soft there was practically no feel to it.
