Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
No problems during stringing. Played on clay court with Dunlop Trainer, Balls Unlimited Code Black and Tennispoint Premium balls.
First impression was very positive. Great power and spin. Characteristics were maintained pretty well. However I noticed that slightly off-center hits totally lacked power. Also the string did not provide as much feel as Signum Pro Tornado or X-perience (my current favorites).
It is similar to the Pro's Pro Red Ghost. I enjoyed both strings, but in the end they both scattered too much.
I'm sure that this string will find its fans. For me it lacks a tiny something in order to become one of my favorites.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample.

Comparison relates to Signum Pro Tornado 1.18. These strings have similar characteristics. For me, feel was more important than spin in this case. The WeissCannon scattered a bit too much for me.

Strung on a drop weight machine in one piece.
Played on two frames in parallel, approx. 10 hours each, on clay court with Dunlop Tournament balls at 28-32°C.
Despite the high temperatures I decreased the tension by 1 lb compared to my winter test. This way I was getting better touch at the same level of control. I also had significantly better comfort. Power and spin were also on a top level.
After 10 hours the first of the two strings broke, which is a great durability on clay court. Did not detect a significant tension loss until then.
Overall a very solid string. Enjoyed it. Should work well for a broad range of players, especially topspin players!

Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces. After 3 weeks (6 sessions, total 12 hours) I cut out the strings. Unfortunately no comparison possible with my current favorite since I am injured at the moment.
Recommendable for those who are looking for a string with long lasting playability.

49/49 lbs Head MicroGEL Prestige MP (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces without problems. I strung at 23/23 and 22/22 kg. Played on clay court with Head No.1 and Babolat Roland Garros balls.
I preferred the softer stringbed from the start, but also the 23/23 kg job felt good after a few sessions and some tension loss. That's when spin and power improved. Durability, comfort and touch were good!
Conclusion: Good string! Will certainly play it again.
Thanks for the sample!
