Feel some tennis elbow when playing with this string for two solid hours. After two months of play, I notice that I am losing power. I am going to put this one in the mains and Babolat VS Team in the crosses to try and improve comfort and perhaps get a bit more power out of the mains.

Overall, a very solid poly with very good tension stability. Comfort wasn't the best, as I did experience some arm pain when playing. I suspect that a hybrid with a multifilament or gut would be a good combination.

No problems during stringing.
Played on clay court in mild temperatures with Head ATP and Dunlop Fort balls.
The string provides a good blend of power and control as well as spin. Some time ago I tried the 1.24 mm version and lacked some touch / crispness / liveliness compared to the Solinco Tour Bite or Kirschbaum Helix. So I tried the 1.28 mm version which I thought was potentially stiffer and crisper. That was the case indeed, however just a tiny bit. Touch was about on the same level as with the thinner version.
It just doesn't work as well on sharp angles and touch shots as the Tour Bite or Helix.
Very solid string overall, as its thinner sister, but not my favorite since there are at least two better strings for me in the same price range.

Rather average string. Power is slightly above average, control is fine. You need to work quite hard to generate ball speed. The string feels stiff and dull and makes a clinking sound on impact. Spin potential is only slightly above average. Comfort is not good enough for me to allow for a longer term usage.

 (>15 hrs.)
Played outdoors so far around 50-60°F and indoors around 65°F, both hardcourt.
I absolutely love this string. It has more control than any other string I have played with so far. It's not dripping with spin like RPM Blast or T1 Firewire, but it's very solid with each hit and goes exactly where I want it to. Decently soft for a poly.

The power is okay, but I tend to like it a little more muted on the power side since I can put my own power behind it and thus control it easier. It doesn't require any break-in period like some other polys I've tried. If you can generate your own power and want to add a bit more control to help align your game then I would definitely give this one a try. Good value for the price as well. I believe it's around $12/set.
