I can't tell which string is similar as I haven't played with such a profile before.
The sharp square profile is evident during stringing. It's almost like cutting through your fingers. Of course this is not really the case and it strings up surprisingly well. Also the string seems to be thicker than 1.23 mm, but I measured with a micrometer an can confirm the correctness of the gauge.
Strung ATW on a Gamma machine with linear pull.
After stringing I was really looking forward to hitting with this string.
Spin is the most outstanding feature of this string, and the effect on slice is even stronger than on topspin for me.
Overall I can imagine to keep this string on one of my four frames. However I will also try the Ultra Cable in a hybrid as the main string.
In any case this is absolutely interesting and a must try.

Spin and control are really enormous. On the other hand, the string feels pretty wire-like. There was no change in characteristics even after several hours of play. But now after 10 hours of play it seems as if control has decreased, but also spin potential, which still means that there is plenty of spin.
I really enjoyed the Ultra Cable and will try it in a hybrid too.

After the recent hype around this string I got hold of a sample too. What can I say? I can absolutely understand the positive reviews ;)
The string provides superb control and spin potential like I haven't seen before. The edged profile in combination with the special coating that facilitates snap-back provide incredible topspin!
Power is not really high but absolutely sufficient for me.
This is certainly not a touchy string, but for me it works very well. It could be a problem for players with a sensitive arm as it is not very soft but pretty crisp.
I can only second the comments from the other testers about durability and tension stability - simply superb...
