At 23.5/22.5 kg the string came off the stringer rather soft (DT 35.5 in a 100 sq.in. 16x19 frame).
After 3 hours of play DT was at 33.5. At that stiffness level it provides better feel than initially.
Power is rather average, the Red Ghost is more powerful. Overall the string bites the ball too much for me - it negatively affected my backhand slice.
After a certain adaption period, I was happier with the Red Ghost.

I am really happy with this string, however I am using it in combination with Kirschbaum Pro Line II 1.25 in the crosses, which provides improved feel.
If you lack feel in a full job, try it in a hybrid, as the spin is really outstanding.

I really enjoyed hitting with this unique string. Control and power are pretty good, spin is outstanding!
Only drawback is the lack of a direct feel.
Many thanks to Mr Weiss for the sample!

The Ultra Cable has a smoother surface but sharper edges than the Red Ghost. It seems thicker than the gauge provided on the package.
As recommended I decreased my tension - from 22/21 down to 20.5/19.5 kg.
From the start I was annoyed by the strong vibrations of the strings which were still there after a longer time of play. Spin potential is very good, but not as good as with the Solinco Tour Bite.
Throughout the test period I was not able to make friends with this string. Comfort was okay for a shaped string, power was lower than Red Ghost despite the lower tension. Control was rather average.
Overall I would not recommend this string but refer to the Red Ghost instead.
