Strung on a drop weight machine. Very easy to string for a profiled poly.
Played outdoors on clay court with new or almost new balls from various brands.
I tracked the stringbed stiffness with an ERT300.
The string came off the stringer at a rather high DT but lost a lot of tension within the first 24 hours after stringing.
On the court, the string wowed me for 15 minutes. It felt nicely crisp. Unfortunately this effect was gone after 15 minutes, probably due to the initial tension loss.
The crispness however was the only thing that was lost. Power, control, feel, spin and comfort were very good throughout the string's life. Tension loss could be measured but did not affect the playability much.
After 3.5 hours the string broke suddenly in the center of the stringbed without showing any signs of wear before.

Conclusion: Very good and interesting string. Only durability and tension maintenance are average, with the latter not negatively affecting playability.
I will certainly try the string again at 1.30 mm in the mains and 1.24 mm in the crosses, strung 2 lbs higher.

As I recently tested Signum Pro Poly Plasma, which I liked very much, I was really excited about the Signum Pro X-Perience, the winner of the string test from October in the German tennis magazine. Therefore my racket was strung up with 50.7 lbs in the mains and with 48.5 lbs in the crosses (4 knots) on a GAMMA X-Els.

Arrived on the court, I started with some easy groundstrokes. The X-Perience offers a good mix of touch, control and power. I would also call the spin potential above average, as well as the durability. Furthermore no notches in the strinbet were visible after 9 hours of play, so this factor speaks for a great durability. And the best part, a slippage of the string was only marginally visible. Moreover it is also a very elastic string, so the comfort is also on a very high level.

Conclusion:
With the X-Perience Signum Pro has developed a string which convinces with a high level of play characteristics. Therefore, it is suitable for all types of players who like power, spin, control and durability.

In my personal opinion, I liked the Poly Plasma a little bit more. Since the Poly Plasma is a very soft co-polyester string, I felt I had a bit more control and touch compared to the X-Perience.

This is like the Solinco Hyper-G with a cream topping. I've been playing the Solinco throughout the summer season, then I tried the X-perience and found it provides increased power without sacrificing control (after a certain adaptation period). Spin and feel are on the same level as the Hyper-G. The Hyper-G is a bit crisper while the X-perience provides better touch without becoming sluggish.
I will play both in parallel for a while. Let's see...

Compared to Solinco Hyper-G 1.25 it provides a bit higher power and better control. The other characteristics are pretty much on the same level.
