Interesting string. Strung on a Babolat Multilec 02 in two pieces. You need to be careful due to the sharp edges, but at least no finger injuries.
The edges show almost no wear after 8 hours of play, and they are a lot more significant than on the WeissCannon Fire Stroke.
DT measurements with RacquetTune:
After stringing: 29 N/mm
12 hours rest: -5%
7 hours of play: -14%
8 hours of play: -15%
I could have continued playing without problems.
Played on clay court at 20-31°C with Dunlop Elite or Dunlop Fort balls.
Great topspin and slice support. Compared to my standard string which I played in parallel, the Cube provided better power initially but significantly less feel and control. It was a lot more difficult to hit a drop shot with the stiff frame.
Overall, excellent spin and good power. Would play it again if the opportunity comes.

Tested on clay at 27°C. The string only lost 1 DT in 8 hours of testing on court. I used Dunlop Fort Max TP, Babolat Academy and Tretorn Serie+ balls.

I was happy to test another great string.
Over the years I have tested a lot of strings from big brands like Luxilon, Yonex, Babolat, Kirschbaum and Solinco. Yet I didn't discover a rare gem. Until now! This string has very good pop of the baseline. I love the amount of spin in combination with the complete control over the spin. Unlike Solinco Hyper G that has a lot of grab and spin. I found this string to deliver more! It doesn't grab the ball too much like Hyper G does.
It also delivers a lot of touch. It was fun with my offensive allround game to be able to control my placement and to be very precise. it's important that a string does deliver how it feels. This string does that! I could let my serves dive into the court and make very short angles to make the opponent hit the return outside the court.

I love this string and will recommend it to players that love to be in total control.
I will continue to use it in my matches from now on.

Plays very nice and provides lots of spin with sufficient power. Played both on clay court and hard court with good results on both surfaces. I had good precision and also good depth when taking full swings. It is also very comfortable which I didn't expect.

Rather stiff during stringing but not on the court. Good control and excellent spin potential. Overall a good string. Felt a bit dead after approx. 12 hours of play so I cut it out.
