This is an extremely sharp string for first looking. More time needed to string than other strings, and need to pay attention for do this with less rotation as possible. I do 2 kgs (4 lbs) lower tension than my regular 1.25 mm round string. This 1.18 mm cube shape is calculated 1.33 mm equal. This string provides surprisingly good playability, good control and power, spin is excellent. The only downside preventing me from switching to it, for my previously injured wrist this giving too high load during hitting. This is a stiff string, but when you need extreme spin, you must test it.

Had it strung last week and played for approx. 6 hours so far.
Stringing was no fun, and I was worried about my grommets since the edges are really sharp, but it was okay.

Interesting playing characteristics. In the beginning I was uncertain; it felt a bit springy at first. But with time it worked much better for me. Especially drop shots and backhand slice worked nice. Depth was easily controllable via topspin which was well supported by the string. Power was definitely sufficient.

Overall I like this string, however I would prefer Kirschbaum Helix which seems more crisp and controlled for me. The Cube is definitely worth a test though!

Played on clay court with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls. The Grapplesnake Cube puts a smile on every spin lover's face. Its spin potential is really addictive and increases your confidence - at least it was working for me! ;)
Power, comfort, touch and durability are also above average. Definitely a candidate for my new standard string.

If you hit the ball well then you get enormous power, but on slightly off-center hits or slow hits, power is rather low. Control is good. Feel is a bit muted and stiff. Spin is very good.

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.
