n.a.  (>8 hrs.)
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.

Good control but I lacked feel and power. Spin potential, comfort and durability were alright. I've played it for approx. 6 hours now and there is still no string movement.

This was actually a blind test provided by Tennisman.
Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces at 20/21 kg. It was recommended to reduce the tension by approx. 15%. It was easy to string due to the smooth surface and round shape. Slightly less stretch compared to other polys.
Played for approx. 10 hours so far on clay court with Dunlop Tournament balls. I had very good control from the start. Power was absolutely sufficient. No problems with my arm nor shoulder. Good snap back resulted in good spin. Shaped strings provide easier access to spin initially. The positive aspect about the Pro Tour is that the spin potential remained rather constant. So far almost no notching. The snap back and the resistance to wear could be the result of the special surface treatment mentioned in the product description.
If you are looking for a solid string and consistent spin potential you should try this string.
