Played indoors on carpet with Dunlop Fort balls.
The white Focus-Hex Ultra is (like the black version) and innovative string, but does not fully reach up to Solinco Hyper-G.

Comparison relates to Solinco Hyper-G.
This time I tested the white version which seems to be a bit stiffer than the black version.
Similar to the standard Focus-Hex, but with better feel and power.

I tried the 1.20 version after playing the 1.25 version (both in black).
Stringing was no problem.
I liked the 1.20 version better than the thicker gauge as it feels more crisp. Durability was not significantly worse; very good for a poly.
Overall very good performance for the first 3-4 hours, then it lost a good amount of tension just like the thicker gauge and the performance dropped.
Conclusion: Good string, but does not stand out among the polys.

No problems stringing on the manual Stringway ML100 con. I used a cross stringing tool.
Played with new Dunlop Trainer and slightly used Dunlop Trainer balls.
During warm-up I noticed the special touch of this string, more resilient compared to the standard Focus-Hex. Tension maintenance is particularly good and the string has not broken after several hours of practice at different temperatures. Notches are not as deep compared to the standard Focus-Hex.
Overall this string shines in the tension stability (measured with StringLab2) department, durability, and its nice touch.
From now on I will use the Focus-Hex Ultra at tournaments.
