String WeissCANNON Power Principle 1.20

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a. n.a.
First of all many thanks to WeissCannon for the sample!
Strung on a drop weight machine in 1 piece without problems.
Played on clay court with Balls Unlimited Black Code balls.
The string provides lots of power. My first shots went too long. But it was fine after some time. Spin potential was almost zero. No issues with arm and shoulder.
I will try it again in a hybrid. It wasn't bad in a full bed, but nothing special.

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.

String WeissCANNON Fire Stroke 1.20
Test Conditions Tension Racquet

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.
Strung on a drop weight machine in one piece. Played on clay with Head No. 1 balls.
The string grabs the ball well and feels crisp. It provides lots of power and control at the same time. Spin and touch were also very good. I did not need any break in period.
I think this string is for a wide range of players since it is very solid and does not show any significant weakness. I'd use it again and recommend it any time.
Thanks to WeissCannon for the samples!

I got a sample of the Moto 1.14 in lime.
Strung on a drop weight machine in one piece without problems.
Played on clay court with Head No. 1 balls.
The string provided a direct feel and very good power. Volleys had a lot of precision to them. I had very good touch. It provides less spin than the WeissCannon Ultra Cable and performs similar to the Signum Pro Tornado.
Overall a very good string.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability

Tried the black version.
No problems during stringing.
Played on clay court with Head No. 1 balls.
Tension stability was good, no string movement. The string provided great spin from the start, but the power needs to come from your technique. Perfect for hard hitters.
Thanks to MSV for the sample!

No problems during stringing.
Played indoors on carpet.
Significantly better power compared to the Focus-Hex. I will string the 1.25 mm version higher to gain better control. Spin is pretty good, but does not reach up to WeissCannon Ultra Cable.
I will post a review of the 1.25 mm version once the outdoor season has kicked off.

The string hurts my fingers during stringing just like the Ultra Cable.
Played indoors on carpet.
Spin is above average due to the profile, just like with the Ultra Cable. I cannot rate the durability as I am not a string breaker. Almost no string movement even after approx. 4 hours of play.
After switching to the Ultra Cable I would see the Blue Rock 'n Power as a true alternative.
Both strings are up there on a high level.

Compared to the Ultra Cable, the Blue Rock 'n Power provides better power, all other characteristics being almost identical. Both string provide phenomenal spin!

First of all thanks to WeissCannon for the sample!
The sharp edges are evident during stringing and the string seems a bit wire-like.
Played indoors on carpet.
The Ultra Cable provides good power and control, but it's highlight is clearly the spin potential. It literally bites the ball. The ball really suffers. There is no string movement and no notching either.
Overall one of the best strings I've played so far. Good performance in all categories, and no real weakness.
I'm really amazed by this string.

You can feel the sharp edges during stringing, and the string seems a bit stiff.
Played indoors on carpet.
The Ultra Cable provides good power and control, but the feature that is standing out is spin. The string literally bites the ball. After some time you can confirm by looking at the balls :)
There is no string movement and no notching.

Very easy to string. It took some time to get used to this string. After 20 minutes it had settled and provided a nice feel. It provides good power and control, but little spin. Does not reach up to Oehms Black Pearl or Signum Pro Tornado. Nothing special overall.
Thanks for the sample.
