Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
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.

I found my new favorite string!
Strung on a Babolat VS 3002 in two pieces.
The string provides incredible precision and power. It did not require any break-in period. It fits my game perfectly! Thanks again for the opportunity to test it. I have found my setup for the summer season.
Compared to the WeissCannon Red Ghost, the Ultra Cable provides much better precision at equal power. Also durability was much better with the Ultra Cable (8-10 hours) than with the Red Ghost (3 hours). After 8 hours of play the Ultra Cable lost some of its control.

Definitely better power compared to the Yonex. Spin is also better, control about equal, and comfort is a tad worse.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung in one piece without problems, although the string does feel stiff.
The string really bites the ball and provides great spin potential. It provides high power, but nevertheless I went down to 21/21 kg as it has its optimum performance without sacrificing control.
Highly recommendable for players who are looking for ball bite and power as well as durability.

Honestly I'm really pissed that I waste my money for the second time on a string by trusting the reviews.
First the Dyreex Black Edge which is liked by so many testers, stupid me ordering a reel just to find out that the lower priced Oehms is worlds better!
OK, so let's try the new Ultra Cable... this time I only bought a set. After two strokes I was horrified - what was that? Balls scatter a lot, without any control, not to mention the rest.
Well, maybe I am not in the target group due to my age, and all others are right, but I also gave the racquet to my hitting partner who had the same experience - disaster.

Nothing comes close to the Tour Bite, Cyber Flash, and - for the tough guys among us - Alu Power!
