 (11 hrs.)
Strung on an electric machine in one piece without problems.
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.

Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces without problems.
Played for approx. 6 hours indoors on carpet with Head ATP balls.
I felt comfortable with the string from the start. However I missed some power. Next time I would string 2 lbs lower.
Spin potential and tension maintenance are the strengths of this string. Playability was consistent. After 6 hours there were slight notches.
I didn't have any arm problems.
I enjoyed the ball bite of this string a lot. Definitely worth a test!

Normal stringing behavior.
Played indoors on carpet with Dunlop Tournament balls.

The string was playable. It was too low powered for me from the baseline. Touch on the volleys was okay but not extraordinary. I guess that was due to the thick gauge.
The string is probably a good choice for hard hitters. For me it was interesting but I would not play it again in that gauge.
