Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Stringing did take about 15-20 min extra. The string kept slipping on my tensioner clamp. String was stiff, slippery and the square shape made it difficult to grab. Knots were tougher to get a tight knot. Completed string tension felt lower than the reference tension. Played outside hardcourt at 54°F. Spin, comfort, control and power were very strong characteristics of the string. Serve had a lot of pop and was easy to keep in play. With all the spin capability it was hard to hit a ball out of the court. Ground stokes felt good while volleys tended to carry deep at times. The string bed did feel slightly springy when you hit it hard in the sweet spot. I would have liked it a little firmer. Next time I will add 2-4 lbs. of tension. Overall, this is one of my favorite strings I have used. It does it all very well with nothing not to like. The only string that I think is comparable if not better is L-Tec Premium 5S/3S. They have a firmer stringbed with less spring and can do it all as well. Definitely add this to my buy list!
Update: After an additional 4 hours of play these strings showed zero signs of wear. No notching at all. Tension did loosen a bit and the string bed was starting to soften. Great string. I would like to try it in a hybrid set up!

I think a better comparison would be Völkl Cyclone Tour 17 but that was not a choice on the drop down menu. Plays much more comfortable to BB ALU with similar characteristics on the other categories. Also, I do feel it has more control and is less springy than Cyclone Tour.

Played for several hours on clay and also indoors by a tournament player. The string did not break. Cut it out when the string started to lose its tension. No other string has lasted that long while maintaining its tension and playing characteristics. Great!

Almost no string movement and really great grip on the ball due to the 4 edges. Durability is really excellent, and tension stability is above average.
The neon color is an eye catcher and a matter of taste. Relatively easy to string, easier than many other twisted or shaped strings.

 (8 hrs.)
Stringing was easy but weaving was a little hard on the finger tips due to 4 sharp edges.
Played outdoors with Penn balls in cooler 11°C, ball felt heavy in cold weather but extra power and spin made this string play an ideal game.
No string movement.

Update: I played 6+ more hours on this string because I did not feel like cutting the strings.
These strings are still playing as good as before, no change in tension, spin is same great spin, and feel is very good.

MSV Focus-HEX 1.23
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
This string has more spin than Tier One T1 Firewire and Yonex Poly Tour Spin, matter of fact this has more spin than any other profiled or rounded string I ever tried, you can literally see the fuzz coming of the ball with each stroke.
The string is made of Polythylenenterephtalat, it is quite comfortable to play with and it has unique 4 sided sharp shape and ball seem to stay on the racket for touch longer (or it feels like), the spin you get is amazing.
