Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.
Played two times for 2 hours indoors on clay court. No problems during stringing.
Overall the string is worth a test, but for me there was no real highlight. Well, spin was definitely more evident when compared to some round polys, but I did not have that "wow" effect.

The Spin Machine is a solid topspin string. Control can be achieved nicely via spin. Feel and power are not above average. From my point of view this is a string for heavy spinners who are really focusing on spin.

 (12 hrs.) n.a.
No problems during stringing.
Played on clay court at high temperatures, total 12 hours, then I cut out the strings. Until that point the strings showed slight notches. I think it would have lasted some time still.
Overall a very solid string with subtle edges that provide good spin potential. Due to the thin gauge the string provides good feel too. Power seems to be above average too. I did not have to get used to it first.
I think this string is suitable for a wide range of players as it does not have any real weakness. Would use it again any time.

Comparison relates to WeissCannon Ultra Cable. In brief, the Blue Rock'n Power provides the best characteristics of the Ultra Cable but with improved power and comfort.

String WeissCANNON Ultra Cable / Explosiv! 1.23/1.30
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
51/55 lbs Völkl Super G V1 Pro (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.  (>20 hrs.)
Played indoors on carpet.
I'd recommend to string the Explosiv! crosses a bit higher as it is so elastic. The Ultra Cable should be strung as usual, NOT 3 lbs lower as recommended on the package.

I expected maximum feel from this combo and was not let down. The spin of the Ultra Cable with the feel of the Explosiv! (which plays almost like gut) gets very close to the perfect setup for me. I've been playing with this for more than 20 hours now and there are no significant signs of wear on the Explosiv! yet, despite the square shape of the Ultra Cable.

I tried the Ultra Cable as a full job, and the Red Ghost on another frame in parallel. Each string has its pros and cons. Thus I also tried a hybrid of Ultra Cable mains and Red Ghost crosses. And I really liked it ;-) Power and spin of the Ultra Cable are nicely augmented by the feel of the Ultra Cable. Still a powerful combo, but more comfortable with the Red Ghost in the crosses than each of the strings alone. It's good to have the best from both strings in this hybrid. Definitely worth a try for players who found the Ultra Cable too stiff and lacking feel. ;-)

This is my current highlight in the poly category. Power is great, and the same applies to feel due to the thin gauge. Spin is a tad less than with the WeissCannon Ultra Cable, on the other hand comfort is better.
Very similar to Isospeed V18.
Cannot fully rate tension stability and durability yet. I played 6 hours so far and did not feel any tension drop. No notching either.
IMHO this string is suitable for players looking for comfort, power and spin. At an affordable price.
Thumbs up for this new WeissCannon string and thanks a lot to Mr Weiss for the free sample!

The Ultra Cable absolutely convinced me in terms of spin. The spin potential is just phenomenal. If you know how to apply your spin, control is accordingly great. The string feels crisp and explosive, and it did not require me to get used to it. The string was "awake" right from the start. Only small drawback is the lack of feel, it feels rather stiff. Drop shots and sharp angles did not work as well as with some other strings. Otherwise this is a really great product from WeissCannon!
Many thanks to Mr Weiss for the free sample!

The Crystaline really hurt my elbow - haven't experienced that with any other string before. I had a lot of pain for more than 14 days, and I could not even think about playing tennis. In terms of playability, nothing really stood out with this string.

I haven't played the Super Smash for some time but I can well remember how it played. I think the strings are comparable, and both seem "old fashioned". The Crystaline has really terrible comfort.
