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.

Strung on a drop weight machine without problems.
Played on clay court.
For the the string provided too much power and insufficient control at 23.5/23.5 kg.
It came off the stringer at 37 DT, after 2 hours of play (2 days after stringing) I measured 34 DT, after one week it was 33 DT (measured with ERT300).

No problems during stringing. Played on several different days outdoors on clay court, practice and competition.
First I strung it at 24 kg. But unfortunately I lacked control and there was too much power. So I strung a second set at 25.5 kg. That provided still enough power and better control, but still not enough. Spin potential didn't seem very good either. I liked the good touch though.

Played indoors on carpet and on clay court for a total of 15 hours.
Overall the string provides a good combination of spin and control which is especially useful on clay court. The string loses some tension initially but then maintains it.
