Stringing was no problem, so I cannot confirm the issues other people described here. Strung ATW on an electric machine at 22/21 kg which is 1 kg less than usual.
RacquetTune measurement after stringing: 19.7 kg (DT 32.5). After 6 days of rest (no play), the string had lost a significant amount of tension (17.8 kg, DT 29.3). After 1 hour of practice I measured 17.2 kg and DT 28.3.
Played indoors on carpet with almost new Wilson Club Tour balls.
The string felt significantly softer than e.g. Solinco Tour Bite. Power was not higher, though. Control and feel were okay, but not standing out. The string provides very good spin potential, however I could not fully leverage it indoors on carpet. Overall the string feels a bit dull.

Conclusion: Not the best string for playing on carpet; will try it again on clay court during the summer season where spin is more important.
The string came off the stringer pretty soft, so I would not follow the manufacturer's recommendation (1 to 1.5 kg softer) next time.

I received a free sample from WeissCannon. But that did not influence my review in any way.

Strung in two pieces on a Blade 98 16x19. Strung a bit softer than usual. Despite the edges I did not have any problems stringing. Stringing lower was a good fit for me, so I can confirm the recommendation on the package.

Played mostly on fast carpet, except for 1 hour on clay court.
Reference for this test was the Solinco Hyper-G.
The Ultra Cable is a control oriented string with good spin potential. Fast strokes can be easily controlled via spin, so I could take full swings without the balls flying long. I also head great touch, never was I uncertain.
Serves and volleys also worked well, although I liked the Solinco Hyper-G better on my serve.
Durability seems good. Played 6 hours so far and characteristics are still good.
As I don't have a sensitive arm, I cannot rate comfort. In any case I did not have any problems with this string.

Conclusion: The Ultra Cable convinced me. I did not find any real weakness. Hard hitters will find good spin potential, great control and good touch in this string. For me there is almost no difference to the Solinco Hyper-G. A candidate for my new go-to string.

Due to the square profile the string is quite rough and causes the callus on your fingertips to grow :-)
Played indoors on carpet at low temperatures for approx. 8 hours.
If you have the right technique you can generate unmatched spin with this string, and the balls are literally shaved!
Unfortunately I am only able to generate that kind of spin on my forehand. My backhand scatters too much with the Ultra Cable.
After a few hours of play the string was no longer that aggressive and my backhand and volley improved.
Although I am sensitive I did not have any problems in my wrist or shoulder.
Will try it again outdoors on clay court.
You must try this string if you are a hard hitter that can generate spin.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample.
