Very easy to string as most multifilaments. No issues, very soft and easy to handle.
I've only played this string in the crosses in hybrid combinations. Really liked it. Provides comfort, control and feel. The rest is then taken over by the main string. Highly recommendable as a cross string in hybrids.

Easy to string. The string stretched a lot. Strung on a drop weight machine.
Played indoors on carpet and hard court with new or almost new Dunlop Balls.
I had good control and touch from the start. However I had trouble getting depth into my shots. After 3 hours I added some lead tape - 4g at 3 and 9 o'clock each - which resulted in deeper shots. Next time I will string 2-4 lbs lower, maybe I won't need the lead tape then ;)
Durability was no good. However the string broke on a miss-hit at the top of the frame. In the sweetspot it still looked okay, so I guess it would have lasted longer normally.

Strung on a Babolat Pure Drive GT New in two pieces, no problems as usual.
The string came off the stringer a bit tighter than expected and felt rather stiff in the beginning, so you should take into account that it takes a certain break-in period.
Good spin for a multifilament, but still not on the same level as a modern poly.
After two hours the string had settled, after 12 hours it started to fray, and broke after 8 additional hours in the center of the stringbed.
I really liked the fact that the string maintained its characteristics after its break-in period. Additionally the touch was excellent.
There was not much string movement which I also liked.
I also played this string in a hybrid in the mains with Gamma iO crosses. That combo produced much better spin, while durability was reduced to 14 hours on my Blade 16x19.
Overall a highly recommendable string, especially at that price.

Used as a cross string in combination with Signum Pro Tornado 1.18 mains.
Played on clay court and carpet.
Spin potential was very poor. Strings were moving around but neither mains nor crosses snapped back to their original position.
Flat strokes worked well, but defensive spin shots mostly went short.
If you don't rely on spin, this string will probably work well for you.
The lack of spin was not a big problem indoors on carpet, but I never got really happy with this string.
Satisfied? not sure

Signum Pro Tornado
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Flat strokes had decent power, but in that aspect I also preferred the Tornado 1.18 full bed.
Spin shots just did not work and I lacked depth and power.
Even in the comfort department I perferred the Tornado, but the difference was minimal.
The Tornado also provided better control and precision, while the hybrid worked better for touchy shots.

Indoors I played the Gamma Moto/Glide in parallel at the same tension. I liked the Moto/Glide better in all categories, however in order to achieve the power level of the Tornado I would have to string lower.
