Great string with a very good feel but the durability is too short on the Pure Aero in gauge 17. The next time, I will try gauge 16 with one kg less.

Compared to the MSV Focus-Hex Ultra, the Hyper-G felt more solid and comfortable, almost similar to the Isospeed Black Fire which I usually string 2 kg less.
After the first 2 hours the Focus-Hex Ultra provided better consistent spin and control while the Hyper-G provided better touch at the net.
After 3-4 hours the Hyper-G started to scatter. So if I was to re-string every 3-4 hours then I would prefer the Hyper-G.

Good string with sufficient power at high racquet speed. Spin effect is dramatically reduced after 4-5 hours of play.

Used this side by side in late summer and early winter with Yonex Poly Tour Spin. Both very comfortable edged strings. I would say the Solinco played more consistently after the tension dropped compared to the Yonex but both are perfect for my game.

Babolat RPM Blast
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Not quite the same pocketing and power as you get from the RPM Blast but such a superior feel and control is far better. Even when the tension drops the control is there for harder hitters. Spin felt at least on par with the RPM. The look and feel of the string is addictive and I will definitely be using this again along with Yonex Poly Tour Spin.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Normal stringing behavior.
Played on clay court with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls.

The string was absolutely okay overall. I had expected higher power though.
Spin was absolutely fine. Precision was not really good. The balls went roughly where I wanted to have them, but not exactly. That was different with comparable strings (e.g. Signum Pro Poly Plasma).
Overall not a string I would stick with, but I'm sure that it will find its fans.
Satisfied? not sure

Compared to SPPP 1.18.
What the Poly Plasma lacks in power you get back in precision. I was surprised that the Solinco did not provide any of both. If you are looking for a powerful string, try the Peppersäck Puro Speed. It provides a tad less precision but definitely higher power at the same tension.
