Square shaped with extremely sharp edges. Sharper and more durable edges than Ultra Cable. Compared to the Ultra Cable, the Blue Rock 'n Power is thinner and provides better ball bite, better control, less power and less snapback (which means less spin depending on the hitting technique).
Overall for me the perfect main string. The color is pale but I like it.

Except for the color it plays similar to the Big Star Styx in almost all aspects. The Blue Rock 'n Power seemed a tad more lively to me. It might provide slightly better power while control is a tad less.

The highlight of this string is its spin. I think it is quite similar to the Ultra Cable, with even slightly better spin, at least in the beginning. On the other hand, feel, control and comfort are not as good. Overall I prefer the Ultra Cable.
Stringing is no fun with this string, as others have previously mentioned.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample.

Strung on an electronic machine in two pieces (with cross stringing tool), 1 kg softer than other polys, came out at DT 39.
Played indoors on carpet at 10-12°C with Dunlop Tainer balls.
After 1 week (3 hours of play) the stringbed was at DT 37, and after 3 weeks it is still at DT 37 which is phenomenal.
The string has a square profile and thus there is almost no string movement. Although the string has sharp edges I did not have probems during stringing.
Particularly suitable for players with an advanced technique who can generate lots of power. The string provides incredible confidence on controlling the depth of the shots.
Compared to my go-to string, Dunlop Revolution NT Hybrid 1.26/1.25, it provides slightly less power and comfort, but touch, feel and control are good. Tension stability is the best I have ever seen, and spin potential is very good.

Compared to WeissCannon Ultra Cable, the Blue Rock'n Power provides the best from the Ultra Cable plus improved power and tension stability and slightly less comfort. If the Ultra Cable is too boring for you and you have a dynamic playing style, then the Blue Rock'n Power will provide you with the necessary bite :-)
