Strung 4 lbs lower according to the instructions. But I did not get along with it. Then I actually increased tension by 2 lbs and still get enormous power but also much better control. Spin is great, also on the slice.
BTW I wear thin gloves for stringing and it works great!

Compared to my favorites MSV Hepta-Twist 1.20 and 1.25 the Ultra Cable is a great string with great power and spin. However I don't recommend to follow the manufacturer's recommendation of stringing 3 lbs lower as this results in too much power IMO. I strung my second frame (Babolat Pure Drive) at my usual tension (23/22 kg) and that was perfect for me. Great control, spin and power from the baseline. You need to find your ideal tension yourself.
Compared to the Red Ghost, the Ultra Cable provides significantly higher power. You need to get used to that, as well as to the lack of touch mentioned by other testers previously. But once you adapted, it rocks!
No problems at all during stringing.
This is going to be my new go-to string.
A 1.20 mm version would be great as I would expect improved touch from it.
The Red Ghost is also a good string with good touch and average power. However it lacks some spin potential for me.

Plays much better after half an hour break-in period. Good touch. Very easy to string.
