When stringing on my Stringway I noticed how little the string stretched. A cross stringing tool helps to protect your fingers when doing the crosses. The string is really sharp edged.
The stringbed came off the stringer at 35.5 DT, and after 24 hours it was at 35 DT.
After 5 hours of indoor play on carpet and Rebound Ace with new and used Dunlop Trainer balls, the stringbed stiffness was at 33.5 DT. After several more hours it went to 33 DT and remained on that level.
The string felt nice from the first hit while other strings often require some time to settle when they are not pre-stretched.
Depth control is excellent, both on flat strokes and on heavy topspin. Kick on my serves and slice were impressive.
Had to adapt a bit for sharp angles and drop shots but then they worked well.
Comfort is very good, touch is incredibly nice.
On my Prince Tour 100 16x18 the Cube feels like a completely new string generation. My new go-to string.

The Focus-Hex requires some break-in period while the Cube is ready to be played instantly without a significant tension loss.
Drop shots and sharp angles work a bit better with the Focus-Hex.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on a drop weight machine. The Cube seemed a lot stiffer than the MSV Co-Focus. But on the court it did not have a negative effect. Its square shape makes it harder to string compared to a round string. But no real problems on my Head Extreme Pro.

I've been using the MSV Co-Focus 1.23 for years. Compared to that, the Cube maintains its tension significantly better. Also control and spin seemed a bit better.
The Co-Focus provided better power on my backhand.
Next time I would string the Cube 2 lbs softer to gain more power.
