Much more comfortable compared to RPM Blast, Alu Power, Tornado at the same tension. This one defines how "hitting like a pillow" is.

The string loses some tension quickly but then it stays constant. At 25 kg it plays really nice. The string is rather low powered, but on the other hand it provides exceptional feel and great control. My arm does not hurt. As I am a flat hitter I cannot rate spin. It's a pleasure to play at the net with this string.

n.a.  (>4 hrs.)
Strung in two pieces at warm summer conditions.
This string is best described as "crisp". I read somewhere that the Element was supposed to be a soft and comfortable string, so that goal seems to have been missed.
The Element is a 100% control string with rather low power and very good touch at the same time.
I cannot finally rate durability and tension stability, but after 4 hours of play at least nothing negative to say. Characteristics are constant so far.
IMHO the Element should not be strung too high, otherwise it might feel too stiff. For me it works well at 22/22 kg, but next time I will string even softer.
Good string.

Not directly comparable but as the Solinco is my go-to string, I am using it as a reference string.
The Solinco provides better spin and power. Both strings provide similar precision and touch. The Element is a bit more arm friendly.

Played indoors with Wilson balls. This string lacks power even at the low tension and it was very stiff even after 8 hours of play on it.

Luxilon Big Banger Ace 18

This string plays way too stiff, might be good as hybrid with softer strings, good old Luxilon Ace would be my choice comparing to these 2 strings.
