Strung on a Tecnifibre TF 60 in two pieces. Behaved like other shaped polys too, crosses were very hard to weave.

Played at indoors on carpet around 17°C in very dry conditions with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls.

First of all many thanks to WeissCannon for the sample! I strung this on a Head Radical Pro. The sharp edges were evident during stringing. It also felt a bit stiff.
The Blue Rock'n Power provides better power and touch than the Ultra Cable, as well as lots of control, but the characteristic that stands out is spin. The string really bites the ball. After some time the balls look pretty bad. There is no string movement and no notching.

The string is very durable so even string breakers will have trouble breaking this string.
Power is good but not too high, very well balanced with control.
The string feels really crisp, especially when freshly strung.
Spin potential is good but you can also hit flat.

Make sure to stick to the recommendation to string lower, otherwise you will lack power and feel.

Recommendable for hard hitting baseline players.

My fingers hurt during stringing. The gauge made it difficult to thread the string for the tie-offs.
The string played nice overall, even though it was a bit too stiff for my taste. Spin was very good, especially on kick and slice serves. But I lacked touch on slice and volleys, so depth control needed to come via spin and grip.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample.

Decent string. Will string 2 lbs lower next time. Very good quality and nice color.
Recommendable for players looking for spin and control.

The string hurts my fingers during stringing just like the Ultra Cable.
Played indoors on carpet.
Spin is above average due to the profile, just like with the Ultra Cable. I cannot rate the durability as I am not a string breaker. Almost no string movement even after approx. 4 hours of play.
After switching to the Ultra Cable I would see the Blue Rock 'n Power as a true alternative.
Both strings are up there on a high level.

Compared to the Ultra Cable, the Blue Rock 'n Power provides better power, all other characteristics being almost identical. Both string provide phenomenal spin!

Plays similar to the Ultra Cable, however power is a bit higher and also comfort seems a bit better. Otherwise no big difference. Spin is superb with the sharp edged profile.
Thanks for the sample.
