I received a Firewire string sample from my coach. First impression was the incredible spin this string offered. It also had plenty of power. Overall great string. The only disadvantage was durability. Usually, I play for about 6 hours with 1.30 mm poly. This one lasted me about 4 hours.

Strung on an electric machine in two pieces without problems.
At first I was not as happy with this string compared to the Tier One Black Knight 1.28. Maybe it was me. After a few more hours I had made friends with it.
Don't know if I would play it again though. Maybe strung at 1 kg less.
The triangular shape is very interesting for spin players and it is there for a couple of hours.
At 25/24.5 kg the stringbed was at 40 DT off the stringer. After 24 hours it was at 38 DT, and after playing for 2.5 weeks it is at 35 DT (measured with ERT300).

I didn't like the string too much overall. Two main reasons: It was a bit too low powered for my taste. It is rather a control string with good durability. Furthermore it was too thick for me. You need to know that I'm playing a 93 sq.in. frame with 18x20 string pattern, so a 1.30 mm poly might not be a perfect fit for that frame in general.
If you are looking for control and durability and can generate the power yourself, this could be a good fit.

I prefer low-powered, profiled strings, so I was looking at this string for some time. And the string lived up to my expectations. But it did not have a particular wow effect. Spin was almost very good. Feel was very direct and crisp. Good control, low power, everything quite reasonable.
But unfortunately no love at first sight. ;)
Maybe that was also due to the relatively thick gauge. I normally play 1.20 mm strings.
