A bit stiff during stringing. I really enjoyed hitting with the Ultra Cable indoors on carpet. I had sufficient power and great spin potential. A really good, somewhat different string. Only touch and control could have been a bit better. Thus I will try some hybrid combos.
Could become my new go-to string (in the hybrid variant). I'm curious how the Ultra Cable will play on clay court.
Thanks to Mr Weiss for the sample.

I liked the string. Excellent spin potential. No string movement. I have played it for 6 hours now and it still holds up great. Great choice for string breakers. Control is very good too. Comfort is okay but you should not string it above 21 kg, otherwise it will be too stiff.
Overall a recommendable string.

Stringing was okay. Knots were a bit difficult to tie.
Played indoors on carpet with Dunlop Tournament balls.

I am afraid I strung too low (see comparison with Red Ghost). Otherwise same thing as with the Red Ghost. Indoors the rallies are too short to make a final judgement. Spin was really great, and power was sufficient. All other aspects were not perfect for me. But that might have been due to the low tension.
The vibrations of the string after impact were annoying. You can probably reduce those by using a dampener, but for me that would be the killer criterium.

I'll provide an update when I will have tested the string on clay court. I believe this string performs better on clay.

Comparison relates to WeissCannon Red Ghost.
Since the package of the Red Ghost did not say anything about tension, I took it as a reference and went down 3 lbs, but that may have been too much.
Overall I am leaning towards the Red Ghost, but that may change if I play the Ultra Cable at a higher tension. I might even adapt to the low tension, but that will take some time.
When I held back my swing, then the string was very precise. But once I had full swings, the ball went unpredictable. A bit similar to the Red Ghost, but more evident with the Ultra Cable.

Normal stringing behavior.
Hard to believe this string has 1.23 mm gauge, it felt thicker on the court. Feel was good, but I lacked some power I would have expected at this gauge. Maybe I strung too high (23/22 kg)?
Overall a good string, but too stiff for me.
Thanks for the sample!
