Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on an electronic machine with fast pull and +10% on the tie-offs, 3 kg lower than usual according to the instructions.
The highlight of this string is its maintenance of playing characteristics for a very long time. But since control, touch, power and spin are only average, there are better alternatives for me in this category of strings.
Comfort and comfort are pretty good.
Advanced players who don't break strings and are looking for constant playability should try this string.

Tester BB10 (11), 2018-10-18  registered Residence: Germany male young seniors team player upper league, hard strokes with heavy spin, offensive baseline game

44/44 lbs Wilson Blade 93 (MS, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (>8 hrs.)
I strung 9 lbs lower compared to my usual setup. I had tested the 1.25 mm version at 48.5 lbs (see my other review). Strung on an electronic machine in one piece without problems.

Played on clay court mostly with new balls. It provided enormous precision and feel despite the low tension. No issues with depth nor scattering. Thanks to the low tension power was improved (compared to my test of the 1.25 mm version). Power was good but still not phenomenal. Same applies for the spin which should come from your technique if you want to use this string. It is rather suitable for hard hitters.
Durability was good. I cut it out after 8 hours but it would probably have lasted a bit longer. That's decent for a 1.20 mm string. The dense string pattern (18x20) might have helped. Good tension maintenance.

Overall a very good string. You should have the courage to string it significantly softer than you would string other polys.

While I usually string at 26/25 or 25/24 kg, I strung this at 23/22 kg but didn't dare to lower the tension further as suggested by the manufacturer. No problems during stringing, no tangling up or so.
Overall the string played great, control being the highlight of this string. I especially liked it on volleys and backhand slice. Power is rather low so this string is for hard hitters looking for a control string. For that target group this is an excellent string.

Compared to the Head Lynx 1.20 the Pro Tour maintains its tension a bit better - no decline even after several hours of play.

Innovative string. Strung on a Babolat Multilec 02 in two pieces at 20 kg. Very easy to string as the strings glide very well.
After 8 hours of play the string felt almost like in the beginning. DT was down 13.5% after 8 hours of play (measured with RacquetTune). I could easily have continued playing it.
Played on clay court at 20-23°C with Dunlop Elite and Dunlop Fort balls at rather high humidity.
Slice worked very well, partly even better than with a profiled string. On the other hand it was hard to generate topspin. Control on flat strokes was excellent though. At 20 kg this string clearly lacks power. I will reduce the tension even more next time and play indoors.
Drop shots were much harder to hit due to the lack of feel.
Interesting string for players who can generate power and are looking for control. I will try it again since I want answers to my open points.
