Played on clay court with Dunlop Trainer balls. The string seems much thicker than 1.23 mm, more like 1.25 or 1.27 mm. The Ultra Cable has very sharp edges which you feel during stringing. It is not so easy to weave and if you string it frequently you may hurt your fingers when doing the crosses.

The string provides good power and extreme spin. As I already hit with heavy spin, the enormous spin potential led to an extremely high trajectory and many of my shots were too long.
Comfort was quite good for a shaped string, but overall there are other co-polys with better comfort.

This is a truly extraordinary string and definitely worth a test.

Thanks to Mr Weiss for the sample.

No problems during stringing. The shape was not an issue. After stringing, the strings did not seem to lie "flat on flat", but while playing the strings settled.
Played on clay court with Dunlop Fort TP balls.
The string provides lots of power, more power than the Red Ghost. Control and touch were a tad worse. As expected, spin was better.
Comfort was a tad worse.
Unfortunately this string does not fit my game and the DNX9 perfectly. Without a dampener, the string made a clanging sound.

Overall this is an interesting string and definitely worth a try.

Thanks to Mr Weiss for the sample.

First of all thanks to WeissCannon for the sample!
I am currently using this string on my Yonex DR 100 (300g) at 22/21 kg.
Next time I would string tighter as I lacked some control on this frame. But overall I really like it and it is a hot candidate for my main string in my go-to hybrid for the summer. Very good spin potential, excellent on ground strokes and volleys. However, power on the serve is not as good as with Yonex Poly Tour Spin / Lynx or Yonex Poly Tour Pro.
I will try this again in a hybrid and will then decide among the Ultra Cable, Gamma Moto, and YPTS (G).

After testing this string and some other strings I can say that I have found my new go-to string. It perfectly fits my game (heavy topspin forehand and slice backhand). There is no string movement, sufficient power, and mighty spin. Kick serves work very well and there is no arm pain.
I am now also stringing this for my team mates and they are also extremely happy.
Thanks to Mr Weiss for the samples.

Great string for the clay court season. Best feature is its spin potential. You really feel the strings bite the ball. All other characteristics were on a good level, so I can recommend the string.

Out of the package the string feels a bit stiff but during stringing it feels softer. The same on the court, where it provides good feel and comfort.

I'd also try the string in a poly/poly hybrid once, maybe with the Head Lynx 1.20 (yellow) in the crosses.
