The string was soft and smooth and very easy to string. I was surprised how stiff it felt on the court despite feeling soft during stringing. Actually the stiffness was good since I played at high temperatures and I usually string 1 kg higher when it gets hot. Thus I felt instantly comfortable with this string. It felt nice, precise and crisp. Power was lively and explosive. Clear feedback. At first the sweetspot seemed to be a bit decreased, but that wasn't a big issue. There was no string movement. Control was very good. Spin was also good with this smooth string.
Overall a nice playing string with consistent characteristics. Nice package of durability, power, feel and control.
Played on clay court in competition with good results :-)
Thanks a lot for the sample.

Strung on a drop weight machine in one piece without problems. Played on clay court with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls.
Power is low so you need to hit hard, which I didn't like in the long run as I developed some arm pain. Spin potential was almost zero. On the positive side, only control and feel are worth mentioning.
Overall not a string for me, but nevertheless thanks for the sample.

Strung on a drop weight machine in one piece without problems. Stretched a lot more than the other Grapplesnake strings I've tried.
In contrast to the Cube and Liquid I did not feel comfortable from the start so it took me approx. 30 minutes to adapt.
Played on clay court for around 10 hours with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls. The string provided good control, feel, comfort and tension maintenance. However I totally lacked power. This causes arm fatigue in the long run. So it's not for me, unfortunately. But on a power frame it will certainly work better...

Unfortunately I could not make friends with this string. When warming up for a doubles I put the racquet aside after 10 minutes of hitting.
After that I still had problems, no power and poor spin. While the first try was indoors on carpet, it performed a bit better outdoors on clay. However due to the lack of power I cut out the strings after 4 hours of play.
Thanks for the sample!
