Test Conditions Tension Racquet
51/51 lbs Head MicroGEL Prestige MP (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces without problems.
Played indoors on carpet and outdoors on clay court with Head No. 1 and Dunlop Fort balls.
I really liked the color! Main characteristics of this string are moderate power and good control. Moderate spin is possible. Can't complain about tension maintenance or comfort either.

Conclusion: Good string but nothing extraordinary. Would play it again though.

Thanks to TWE for the sample.

Played indoors with Dunlop Fort TP balls.
The string provided average playability on the Völkl frame. Power was good, control was present, but could have been better. Feel was rather soft. Comfort was okay for me.

Test Conditions Tension Racquet
49/46 lbs Head YouTek Graphene Prestige REV Pro (MS, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on an electronic machine in two pieces.
The first setup was my standard racquet and my standard tension 22/21 kg. But for that soft frame this was strung too low. Thus I also strung the current Prestige REV Pro which is stiffer at 23.5/22.5 kg which worked better. The string provided great comfort. Power was okay, but the string felt a bit sluggish and I lacked spin.
In any case you should try the Sylikon if you are looking for a comfortable poly.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung in two pieces on an electronic machine without problems, medium stretch.

Highlight of this string was the nice feedback on impact. Great touch and comfort. Power is relatively high. Spin potential was poor though. Control was only average, there are better strings in that department. Durability and tension maintenance were good or very good.

Thanks to TWE for the sample.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.
Strung in two pieces on an electronic machine using a cross stringing tool. The string felt softer and stretched more than the Double AR PURA 25. No problems during stringing. Reminded me a bit of the Topspin Cyber Flash. The surface is smooth.
There is almost no string movement during play. Played indoors on carpet with Dunlop Trainer balls at around 10-12°C.
Initial DT (37) was a bit lower compared to the PURA 25. After 3 hours of play it was still at 35 DT so that is a very good tension maintenance.
The string provides lots of power, little control, almost no spin potential, but very good comfort.
The blue color is fresh and beautiful.
