Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces. The texture is similar to Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough. Thus you need to be careful when weaving the crosses. Pull slowly to avoid burning the mains.
Played on clay court with Head ATP balls at around 15°C.
The string feels quite lively and provides good spin support. This way you can control your shots very well. Power was sufficient. No arm problems. Minimal string movement.
Worth a test for players looking for maximum spin support.

Strung on a drop weight machine at 24/24 kg. The string stretched a lot during stringing. I had approx. 3.5 m (11') left after stringing. Is it a multifilament?
When pulling the crosses you know why it is called "Saw". It makes a lot of noise and I recommend to pull really slowly to avoid burning the mains. Otherwise no issues.
Played indoors and outdoors on clay.
The string provides good spin potential and feels lively. Otherwise no particular characteristics that stood out. Comfort seemed fine since I did not have any arm problems. The characteristics have not changed after 6 hours of play so far.
Will update my review as soon as the string dies.

Strung in two pieces. Played indoors at low temperatures with Babolat VS balls.
I enjoyed the string during the 4 hours I played it. Good power and comfort, decent touch and great spin, which is the highlight of this string.
A very lively string with outstanding spin and good overall characteristics. Highly recommendable!

Very interesting string with a very edged look and feel.
Similar profile as Alu Power Rough or Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough. Would have loved to play those in parallel.
Similar feel compared to the Diamond Rough - not stiff but not soft either. Excellent spin and great control.
At times I felt like the string was hurting my arm.
Due to the extreme profile it is almost possible to get the strings straight during or after stringing.
If you like odd strings, you should try this one.
