Played indoors with Dunlop Fort TP balls.
I was instantly feeling well with this string. It provides me with lots of power and good control. It really fits my game. Comfort is okay for me - no pain. It feels a bit dull and provides a slightly stiffer feel.
Thanks to Mrs Kirschbaum for the sample.

Tester Horst1 (1), 2017-02-09  registered Residence: Germany male seniors team player upper league, hard strokes with moderate spin, allround game

I had the chance to try the lasted string from Kirschbaum.
Strung on a Tecnifibre TF 60 in two pieces. Very easy to weave the crosses.
My ERT700 read 37 DT after stringing.
Played indoors on carpet with once-used Dunlop Fort Tournament balls.
The string provided a very direct feedback. My shots had the right depth from the start, spin potential was normal. The string provided excellent touch. Angles, volleys and drop shots worked very well. Flat serves had decent speed and precision. Slice and kick serves did not work so well. Backhand slice worked well, but I was not able to generate the same amount of topspin on my forehand as I am used to (e.g. with Head Gravity).
After 2 hours of singles the stringbed was still at 35 DT. It seems to maintain its tension very well, and there is almost no string movement.
I cannot rate the durability yet. But there are no notches at all.
Overall recommendable for club and team players.

Update: Meanwhile I have played the string for 5 additional hours (singles). Since I'm not a string breaker, the string still shows only slight notches. DT measurement is still at 34.
