Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces. No problems during stringing, but you should not pull the crosses too quickly to avoid notches.

Played for 5 hours on clay court and 2 hours on indoor carpet with new or almost new balls from various brands.

By looking at the package I was expecting an improved version of the Sonic Pro with good control and feel.

As a result of my test, I can point out durability as the highlight of this string. After 7 hours of play there were no signs of wear. Spin potential was good but not extraordinary.

Power, control, comfort and tension maintenance were normal.

I was disappointed by the feel of this string. It was sluggish. Control was okay but I did not feel well due to the dull feedback.

I had to force myself to continue playing this string as I don't like to cut out test strings, but in this case it didn't make sense.

Conclusion: For me this string does not work at all in my current frame. Only durability was a highlight. The Sonic Pro Edge does not have anything in common with the Sonic Pro.

The Sonic Pro Edge does not have much in common with the classic Sonic Pro. The color is a bit lighter, rather dark grey, while the Sonic Pro is really black. The Sonic Pro is soft and comfortable while the Edge is stiff and wire-like. The sweetspot seems smaller with the Edge.
I didn't like the feedback either, much too stiff. I even cut it out after 2 hours because I could not find much positive about it.

The touch increases with the tension loss. I recommend to string lower ;-)
