Normal stringing behavior despite the octagonal shape. Played on a Pro Kennex Q5 295g at 24 kg (DT 38).
Great string for this 100 sq.in. frame. Good spin, control and feel. Volleys and slice worked very well.
Recommendable string, good value!

Easy to string.
All characteristics are on a good level but no feature really stands out. Solid string. Unfortunately it lacks tension stability. Also the string seems to lose its profile rather quickly and thus loses its spin potential.
But overall a good value.

Strung on a drop weight machine in one piece without problems.
The Proton 8 is a profiled control string with low power, very good control, and good spin. Feedback is rather crisp, but does not hurt my arm.

Not too easy to string. You need to take care to avoid kinks. While it is rather stiff during stringing, it does not feel stiff on the court. It feels crisp but not uncomfortable. The MSV Focus-Hex gave me some arm problems, but this one didn't. It is very spin friendly and provides good touch.
Played for approx. 8 hours on clay court and it still holds up well. Overall a clear recommendation!
