The string has one real strength: spin. Unfortunately it was too low powered for my game. I also lacked touch. Overall an interesting string but for me a bit too one-sided.

The string performs extremely well. Spin potential is incredible. Haven't seen that in any other string. Power and control are also very good.
Thanks for the sample.

Due to the string's shape it is not that easy to string, but the hard stringing pays off on the court. The string provides good power and extreme spin.
Highly recommendable for spin players.

Tour Bite and Ultra Cable play similar. Ultra Cable has better spin and control. Feel is better with Tour Bite.

Stringing was no problem, so I cannot confirm the issues other people described here. Strung ATW on an electric machine at 22/21 kg which is 1 kg less than usual.
RacquetTune measurement after stringing: 19.7 kg (DT 32.5). After 6 days of rest (no play), the string had lost a significant amount of tension (17.8 kg, DT 29.3). After 1 hour of practice I measured 17.2 kg and DT 28.3.
Played indoors on carpet with almost new Wilson Club Tour balls.
The string felt significantly softer than e.g. Solinco Tour Bite. Power was not higher, though. Control and feel were okay, but not standing out. The string provides very good spin potential, however I could not fully leverage it indoors on carpet. Overall the string feels a bit dull.

Conclusion: Not the best string for playing on carpet; will try it again on clay court during the summer season where spin is more important.
The string came off the stringer pretty soft, so I would not follow the manufacturer's recommendation (1 to 1.5 kg softer) next time.
