I tried the Hyper-G because I wanted to have more power than with the Tour Bite. I am amazed. For me this string provides the same level of control as the Tour Bite, but a bit better power.
My new go-to string :)

Strung ATW on an electronic machine without problems. Measurements with RacquetTune showed 24.4 kg (DT 40.2) after stringing and 22.6 kg (DT 37.2) after 36 hours of rest. After one hour of play the readings were 22.1 kg and DT 36.5.
Played indoors on carpet with Wilson balls.
The string left a very good impression. I liked its stiff and crisp feel without being harsh or dead. I had very good control and precision. Power is average and you need to swing fast, which in turn also helps to leverage the great spin potential of this string.
I cannot say much about comfort as I don't have a sensitive arm, but I think it might not be suitable for sensitive players.
Overall I think it plays similar to the Tour Bite, maybe a bit stiffer and crisper. Interestingly many of my shots were short, but on the other hand very few were long, even those that I thought would definitely go out.
Maybe next time I would string 1-2 lbs lower as I think that this would not significantly decrease control or feel.
Conclusion: Very good string for advanced players with a fast swing. Not so suitable for recreational players as it is quite demanding in terms of swing speed.

Quite stiff during stringing.
The string provides good power if you have a fast swing. I really like the control. The string loses 2-4 lbs of tension after 1-2 hours of play, but then maintains its tension quite well. With decreasing tension, power increases. Spin is very good. You can hit hard and the balls rarely fly long.
The best thing about this string is its color. It nicely reflects the light.

First, thanks to TWE for the sample!

The string provides good tension stability and durability. Now after 6 hours of singles and 1 hour of doubles on carpet there are significant notches, so I will cut it out to restring my frame. I think that it would have lasted probably another hour or so.
Further highlights are control and spin. Among the strings I've tried, the most similar one is Yonex Poly Tour Spin (blue), with the Yonex being a tad more comfortable and the Hyper-G providing better tension stability.

Conclusion: Great string. Will play it again in a hybrid with Yonex Poly Tour Pro 1.25 crosses.

Easy to string. Has the same edges like Tour Bite. A very bright colour when you open the packet. Really stands out in the racket. Everybody knows what it is. It's a very marketable string. I can see why a lot of younger players are using this and some of the tour pros already switching from Tour Bite to this one. An excellent string to play with. Really enjoyed using this. When fresh it's lively and spinny. More so than Tour Bite which was my recent go to. After it's been used for a bit the characteristics slow down a little and it ends up being just like Tour Bite after that has been used for a few hours, only a tad softer. Definitely a string I could consider switching to.

These 2 strings are almost identical. The Hyper-G just being a slightly softer and livelier version of the Tour Bite. I feel I could switch between the 2 with no adjustment needed. Hyper-G is the flashy colour string. Tour Bite the no-nonsense version.
