Easy to string and nice color. Little stretch during stringing.
Tension stability is so good that I went down to unusually low tensions.
Came off the stringer at 37 DT. After 24 hours it was 36 DT, and after 5 hours of play the stringbed settled at 35 DT.
Played on clay court with new Dunlop Trainer balls.
The string felt nice from the start. Control is excellent, touch and comfort are very good. Would recommend this also to players suffering from arm problems.
Spin is good but not as impressive as with a profiled string.

The Excellent Purple is on par with the Yonex in the comfort department, but the tension stability is much better.

Stringing was okay. Played 4 hours so far. Somehow the string does not have any highlights. It's not bad but still rather boring. Spin was rather poor, but you need to know that I normally play a hybrid of Wilson Revolve Spin and Gosen AK Control...

Tried this 2 weeks ago and really liked the string. No problems during stringing, and I can't complain about durability. I think it is suitable for a versatile game. Everything works well, slice, topspin, volleys etc. Feel and control are great.
I personally, however, prefer the Cube as it provides me with better spin potential and power. But it's definitely recommendable for allround players that approach the net sometimes.

Normal stringing behavior (one piece), no problems tying off.
Cannot rate durability, played for 2 hours of doubles on clay court with Dunlop balls. I lacked power and had to hit hard. Control, feel and spin were not above average either. Only comfort is very good. Overall a very average string, much inferior to the Grapplesnake Cube/Liquid hybrid.

After stringing: 39.3 N/mm
After 2 hours of doubles: 36.6 N/mm
