Tested the black version on clay court.
Apart from the lack of comfort (I have a sensitive arm), the string provides great control even at low tensions. Power is well balanced. You should definitely try this string if you don't have a sensitive arm!

I also tried this string in a hybrid with Isospeed Control+ crosses (22/22 kg), indoors on carpet. That did improve comfort a bit, but not sufficiently. Control was reduced and strings were moving around more.

Many thanks to MSV for the sample!

Easy to string.
Played on clay court.
First impression was the strange sound of the string (not meant in a negative way, it just sounded different).
The string provides good precision and control at average power. Spin is good. There was almost no string movement and almost no notching, even after several hours of play.
I had the impression that the string had lost some of its initial crispness after 4-5 hours of play, but that is not unusual for a poly. I guess I would cut out this string before it breaks. Note that I am using a small frame with 18x20 pattern so my strings typically last pretty long.
As durability is very good you could easily choose a thinner gauge. At least I will try this.
Overall a very good string with good control and durability. The other characteristics are normal for a poly but not significantly above average.

 (10 hrs.)
Strung in two pieces. Provided good power and control. Took only 30 minutes to get used to it. Spin potential was very good, comfort as well. I lacked some touch, but tension stability was superb. Throughout the 5 days I played I did not notice a significant loss of tension.
Will try it again in a hybrid with MSV Multi Q10.
Thanks to MSV for the sample.

No problems during stringing.
Provides good power and spin. Control is sufficient, good precision. For me this was the first string that broke on the crosses and not on the mains. But no criticism as the durability was good.
Overall a candidate for my go-to string for the season. I'm very happy with it!
