The string has extremely sharp edges, and if you string multiple racquets in a row, your fingers might reflect that. The cross strings automatically snap into a specific position lying on the mains if you take care not to twist the string too much.
For a 1.20 mm string it seems pretty thick, maybe due to the special manufacturing process.
My hitting partners were irritated by the trajectory of the ball, it flies high and then drops down steeply and bounces extremely high. If you are using new balls you will notice very soon how the felt is getting rough.
An extreme string for maximum spin. I really enjoyed it.

The Blue Rock'n Power seems stiffer than the Focus Hex, maybe due to the thicker gauge.

I've played three competition matches with this string and it worked much better for me than during practice sessions. The string grabbed the Dunlop Tournament balls really well so I could take full cuts at the ball. Durability was really good, especially considering the high temperatures.

Played indoors on carpet.
The edges were quite evident during stringing, which means I did not enjoy stringing.

Due to the previous reviews I was uncertain about the right tension. Many wrote the string was powerful... but although I strung it softer than usual (i.e. 2 lbs lower than Signum Pro Tornado and Kirschbaum Pro Line Rough) it totally lacked power. I think that 2-4 lbs further decrease in tension would have been possible for me without sacrificing control.

Overall not a string for me. It's the successor of the Ultra Cable. Lots of spin on flat strokes. Not nice for the opponent, but angle shots with feel (slow swing) were not possible because the ball sort of stuck to the string bed and went off in a trajectory I did not find helpful.

I am moving away from profiled strings anyway. They may support some strokes but they also negatively affect some others. Overall I would not play this string again.

Nevertheless thanks to Mr Weiss for the sample.

Comparison relates to Kirschbaum Pro Line Rough.
For me the Kirschbaum performs better in all aspects except spin. It just fits my game better. I'm sure I could also find a setup with the Blue Rock'n Power that works better for me, but the issues on angle shots described above are a killer criterium for me.

The stringer said it was not easy to string, probably due to the sharp edges. The profile, on the other hand, provides good control and lots of spin. It plays similar to WeissCannon Ultra Cable, but with higher power.
In a full bed it slightly hurt my arm despite the low tension. I will definitely try it again in a hybrid to improve comfort. If successful, this string will stay high on my list. If you don't have a sensitive arm and are looking for power, control and spin, you should definitely try this string.
Thanks again to WeissCannon for the sample!
