The string feels rather wire-like. It almost did not stretch during stringing. At 21.5/21.0 kg reference tension, it came off the stringer at DT 35.33.
From my point of view, control and spin are the highlights of this novel string. Power was average for me. IMO the biggest drawback of this string was the lack of comfort. But I do have a very sensitive arm... Will try it again in a hybrid in order to improve comfort. Thanks for the sample.

This is a very unique string, starting from the very squared profile. Despite the declared 1.23mm gauge, it is really a thick string and it plays more like a 16g-1.30mm round string. Ultra Cable provides good power and good control, but the outstanding characteristics are the SPIN and the physical DURABILITY.
It gives a LOT of spin on forehand shots, maybe even TOO MUCH for my western grip forehand. Really suitable for people that need more spin on their shots, it seems impossible to send the ball outside the lines with all that spin.
But the truly outstanding behaviour of this string is the no-notching after 3 hours of solid hitting. I hit hard shots and usually break 1.30mm string in 4 hours. This string seems brand new after 3 hours, you can move the crosses without any notching on the mains. I could imagine this string could stand hours and hours and hours of heavy hitting. Tension stability seems wonderful too.
At the end, I suggest this string to chronic string breakers and to every player that needs some extra spin with respect to usual poly. It has tourbite-ish spin capability ;)
