Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Interesting string. Already when stringing: 22/22 kg resulted in approx. 39 DT. At first I thought I could never hit with this on my 18x20 98 sq.in. frame. Power was surprising though. It was strange because racquet speed and power did not seem to correlate linearly. When I hit harder then the string's advantages (spin, power) increased exponentially. At slower head speeds it seemed dead but controlled. On my serves I lacked some pocketing. It was not easy to generate spin.
Certainly an interesting string for hard hitters!

 (8 hrs.)
Feels stiff and wire-like during stringing, almost no stretch. No major problems during stringing, just a bit slippery at times due to the silicone coating.
The string can be strung 2-6 lbs lower without sacrificing too much control. This is a unique characteristic of this string.
This way you also gain feel, comfort and a bit power. During the initial 30 minutes the string feels quite dead, which is good if you need to tame a powerful frame. And also, as it is a round string, spin needs to be generated via racquet head speed.

This top string keeps its promise. Absolutely great control and high power. Feedback and feel are superb. It maintains its characteristics until the end. Spin potential is sensational for a round poly. Ideal for someone like me who does not like to play shaped strings.
Great string for hard hitters. Unfortunately I don't see many players using it.
