No problems during stringing. Played exclusively on clay court.
The string provides nice playability, good control and spin. Comfort seems good as well, however I'm not that sensitive so I can't really tell.

I can't tell which string is similar as I haven't played with such a profile before.
The sharp square profile is evident during stringing. It's almost like cutting through your fingers. Of course this is not really the case and it strings up surprisingly well. Also the string seems to be thicker than 1.23 mm, but I measured with a micrometer an can confirm the correctness of the gauge.
Strung ATW on a Gamma machine with linear pull.
After stringing I was really looking forward to hitting with this string.
Spin is the most outstanding feature of this string, and the effect on slice is even stronger than on topspin for me.
Overall I can imagine to keep this string on one of my four frames. However I will also try the Ultra Cable in a hybrid as the main string.
In any case this is absolutely interesting and a must try.

Unfortunately the string broke extremely quickly. After a little above 3 hours of play it snapped. Durability was disappointing for me. Okay it is only 1.18 mm but another 1.20 mm string lasted me 15 hours and is still on the frame.
Also the Red Ghost had a strange sound on my Blade, and despite my 18x20 string pattern the string started to move after 1 hour of play which I find annoying.
Well, I won't make friends with the Red Ghost. It's a pity as I really liked the color!

Strung on a Gamma Progression II 602 with Wise Electronic Tension Head 2014. The hybrid was easy to handle.
Played indoors on carpet with Dunlop Tournament balls.
Currently I don't see this as my new go-to string.
