After playing 6 hours of singles with this string I have mixed feelings. On the one hand the string provides excellent durability and tension stability, and spin is definitely interesting. On the other hand, the extreme edges caused me trouble keeping the balls low. I lacked the feel that I need for my slice. I also lacked the feel on my serves.
I'll try it again at the beginning of the summer season, and then once again in July or August.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample.

I wouldn't string too many frames with this string without gloves. Very sharp edges. Enormous ball bite and relatively low power. Feels very muted.

My new go-to string. Great spin, control, feel and durability. However I don't understand why the manufacturer recommends to string lower. The stringbed comes off the stringer rather soft. I think the string is recommendable for stiff frames. Hardly notches. Similar to Yonex Poly Tour Spin. Otherwise unique. Clear recommendation.

 (2-3 hrs.)
I've tried two packs of the string now (thanks to WeissCannon for the sample :) ).
No problems during stringing. Yes the edges are sharp but if you are stringing a lot you should not have any issues ;)
The first time I strung at 24/24 kg, the second time at 23/24 kg, which made a surprisingly positive difference. I might even go down to 22/23 kg as the string feels quite stiff initially. But after 10-15 minutes of play, the feedback and feel is just great.

Unfortunately both times the string did not get much past the 2 hour mark. Since I am a string breaker, this does not mean durability is poor. I'm just wondering how long it will last during summer, outdoors on clay court. If durability is shorter then it will become too expensive.

As I am not sensitive I cannot really rate comfort. Would rather attribute that to racquet and technique.

Spin is awesome and control is also great on fast flat strokes.

Overall the best string I've tried so far. My new go-to string.
