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...

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on an electronic Gamma machine. Stringing was a nightmare. The edges are extremely sharp. Doing the crosses is a torture. Almost no stretch, so I expected a stiff string. Seemed much thicker than 1.23 mm.
Played on clay court with Dunlop Fort Tournament and Balls Unlimited Code Black balls. First at 23/23 kg, then at 25/25 kg. I personally preferred the latter setup.

The string is quite resistant. It also seems to have some sort of coating and due to the square shape it has a larger contact area between mains and crosses, reducing friction and improving durability.

Power is moderate or low. You need to be able to create the power. Control via spin is excellent. Great grip on the ball, no issues controlling depth as long as you hit with spin. Flat strokes are okay but not the highlight of this string.

Feel is rather dull. Not your string if you are looking for a fine touch. The Ultra Cable is not really comfortable. Not suitable for players with a sensitive arm. Feedback is rather stiff and solid. Recommended to string lower.

In terms of spin this string is my new reference. Incredible grip on the ball. It is a ball killer. Additionally it provides an enormous snap-back, so the ball rotation is very high. A class of its own in this category.

Tension maintenance is good but not excellent. I did notice a tension drop after a few sessions, leading to a slight loss of control. There are better strings in this category. But nevertheless a good performance.

Conclusion: If you are looking for spin or spin control, you need to test this string. Great durability, outstanding spin and great control. Power is low, but sufficient for this string. This string is rather demanding so I would recommend it to advanced players who can benefit from the full potential of this string.

The Ultra Cable provides much better grip on the ball and significantly better snap-back. Both strings feel rather dull. Comfort is better with the Yonex.

If you are looking for an allround string, use the Yonex. If you are looking for spin and control, use the Ultra Cable.
