Strung in one pieces on an electronic machine. Strung significantly softer than usual. The sharp edges hurt my fingers during stringing. Knots were not easy to tie.
Played on clay court at moderate and warm temperatures with my usual balls (Tretorn Control+). Power was very good thanks to the low tension. Thanks to the good control and incredible spin potential I had very good precision, angles worked very well. Feel on impact was very nice, and slice and drop shots worked well (Isospeed Pyramid still worked a bit better though). Comfort was good for a poly.
As far as I can tell durability and playability are also good.

Comparison relates to Isospeed Pyramid (which I reviewed on July 3rd, 2018). The Ultra Cable provides even better spin than the Pyramid (which is already on a very high level). On the court this meant that my forehand shots worked awesome. On the backhand, though, the Pyramid worked a bit better for me, so bottom line the ratings are equal except for spin.

Strung using Wise tension head. Extremely square and sharp. Cut your fingers kind of sharp. As with many shaped polys it felt bigger than its stated size. First hit I thought I'd strung it up too high, but after 5 minutes the string softened considerably and was brilliant. Surprisingly good comfort and dwell time. Got about 15 sets of tennis before I cut it out, although it could have kept going. Very satisfied.

The sweetspot is BIG. Maybe too big I would say. This trades off with some control and accuracy in my opinion. I strung the Ultra Cable with "surface-over-surface" set up. It reduced the notching on the main strings but I felt the string was not biting the ball very much and let the ball slip in some occasions. After all, it is still a great string with lot of easy power.

The Ultra Cable played very nice. I used it in the mains in a hybrid. Durability (4 hours), however, was very poor, so I won't switch to it. Solinco Hyper-G lasts significantly longer at the same tension in the same racquet, even though it generates a bit less spin.

The string provides really good spin but loses its characteristics a bit too fast.
