I enjoyed stringing and also playing this string. It outperformed many of the strings I've tried recently on my current frame. I hope I have found my new go-to string now. It provides good power and control as well as great touch. Comfort is particularly good, after having tried the Alu Power, Alu Power Rough and Solinco Tour Bite and getting a sore arm from them.
I think it is important - as with most other polys - to not string it too high. 21/20 kg work very well for me on my Yonex VCore Pro 100 indoors.
I also liked the Signum Pro Poly Plasma, however the X-perience works better for me in the above mentioned categories.

The string provides lots of spin, but not as extreme as with the Gamma Moto or MSV Focus-Hex Ultra. Highlights were precision and power.

53/53 lbs Babolat Pure Drive 2018 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on an electric machine without problems. The string's surface feels somewhat rubber-like.
Played indoors on hard court with almost new DTB Tour balls.
The stringbed was rather stiff off the stringer but it softens up a bit afterwards. Still I would string at least 2 lbs lower next time.
During the first minutes the string feels rather dead. After 10-15 minutes it starts to come alive and you get good control and power. I'm curious if next time at a lower tension balls would fly too long.
After the stringbed softened up comfort was quite good for a profiled poly.
I've played 6-8 hours so far and it shows significant notches. But that does not seem to negatively affect playing characteristics. I'm curious if it will maintain its characteristics until it snaps.
Conclusion: Very good allround string which is suitable for a broad range of players. I don't like the color that much, would prefer a more neutral one.

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.
