Played indoors on carpet with Head No. 1 Trainer balls.
The string provides lots of confidence due to the great control. You can hit precisely with decent power without risk of over hitting. I liked it a lot overall, nice combination of control and power, without sacrificing touch. Definitely a candidate for the upcoming clay court season.

Similar to Solinco Tour Bite, with better comfort, touch and power. For me the Hyper-G is better. Maybe I have to string lower next time, it maintains its tension very well.

I tested the string while using new US Open balls.
I did string the rackets on the new Babolat Racket Station using 4 knots.
The surface was Clay. The weather was 16°C and there were clouds.

I did found that the Solinco Hyper-G has a unique feel. It grabs the ball really smooth. I am an experienced tester and I have tested a bunch of strings.
I have never felt anything like this string before.
It's very good inside the court when you are really aggressive and put a lot of pressure on your opponents. I have found this string to be perfectly in balance in terms of power and control. When you go for big shots like a countershot or a very fast winner you will hit so good that your opponent will be in danger. When you hit the ball short cross you will see that this string allows you to make very short angles and be in absolute control.
At the net this string delivers nice feel on your volleys and even the drop shots will be hit with maximum accuracy. The serve was really nice.
Hitting the flat serve with this string gave me a lot of power and accuracy it feels like hitting bombs to your opponent. While hitting slice serves you can both make short angles with a lot of slice and hit faster slice serves to pull your opponents outside the court. Finally the kick serve allowed me to make my opponent hit the ball above his head.
From behind the baseline you will feel like you can hit your stroke wherever you want with a lot of aggression. But I have found this string to deliver his best when you are really aggressive inside the baseline.

I keep playing with the Solinco Hyper-G from now on.
When you are looking for a comfortable very unique string for aggressive players or modern players, then you need to give this string a go!

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.
