Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample.

Due to the extremely good ratings I was very curious about this string. Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. It certainly provides great spin potential. But that's about it IMHO. In all other categories it is average (durability, control, comfort, tension maintenance) or below average (power, feel).

My favorite string (Dunlop Revolution NT Hybrid) provides similar spin but significantly better control and better power.

Strung on an electronic Gamma machine.
Stringing was no fun due to the string's profile.
Played with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls at various temperatures.
Overall an interesting, polarizing string. I found that durability and spin stood out. However I had to get used to its feel, did not quite like it.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample of this very unique string.

Times have sure changed in the last 10 / 20 years. It's nice to have a choice of good poly strings, and provide you with power, control and spin along with durability.

I've tried a few strings from WeissCannon, and found you can't go wrong with any one of their products. I'm from the old school, where I hit flat. Because of that, I need a string the will help me generate more spin.

58/57 lbs Babolat Pure Drive Lite 2015 GT FSI (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on an electronic machine in two pieces using a cross stringing tool. 3 lbs softer than the Double AR Sylikon, resulting in the same stringbed stiffness (37 DT).
Played indoors on carpet at 10-12°C with new Dunlop Tainer balls.
After 3 hours of play DT was at 34 which is surprisingly good.
The string has a square profile and thus there is almost no string movement.
In contrast to some other reviews, I did not have problems during stringing.
Particularly suitable for players going long rallies with lots of spin, as this string provides unbelievable confidence in controlling the depth of your shots.
Compared to my go-to string, Dunlop Revolution NT Hybrid 1.26/1.25, this string has a bit less power and comfort, but very good touch, feel and control (about on the same level). Tension stability and spin potential are remarkably good.

Strung on an electric machine, 2 lbs lower than normal according to the instructions from the manufacturer.
Played indoors on carpet at 15°C with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls.
The string was a bit stiff during stringing, but otherwise typical for a poly. The edges are sharp but otherwise no problems.
Main feature of the string is its superb spin. I also liked the great control and low power. Really suits my game. The string also provided vry good feel. Only comfort was not that exellent, but still acceptable.
I will definitely try this string again during summer on clay court. It may become my new go-to string.
Definitely worth a test. Highly recommendable.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample.
