Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.
Good all-around polyester string with outstanding tension maintenance. There was no WOW factor but no weakness either. I can see why people prefer Red Ghost more than Ultra Cable but it might be just thin vs thick gauge. If Ultra Cable was the same gauge, I bet people liked Ultra Cable better.

Thin gauge string comes with pretty common characteristics, comfort, power, and feel. But unlike other thin gauge strings, tension stability was outstanding.

String WeissCANNON Ultra Cable 1.23
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
53/51 lbs Wilson Pro Staff RF 97 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.
First of all, 1.23mm square shape isn't same as 1.23mm round string. This really looks, feels, and plays like 16 gauge if not thicker.
The edges are very sharp and it retains that sharp edges even after several hours of hard hitting. The string coating was very smooth and there was no string movement.
The square profile of Ultra Cable actually made the string bed smooth and dense. And the sharp edges grabbed the ball extremely well when I brushed up the ball.
The control was great except the string has a bit of springy response. As the tension dropped, it begun to lose its excellent control a bit.
The spin was amazing around 50lb and it gained more and more spins as the tension dropped. The problem was the power increased as well.
The feel was very good and unique. The string was stiff but it had a bit of dampening feel to it. It was more closer to firm feel than crisp feel and it made some unique contact sound which I liked it.
The string lost about 15% of its tension after 7 hrs of intense hitting and that is normal or better than most of polys.
The string has a good balance of power, spin, and control. If I strung this on lower swing weight racquet than RF97, it would have fitted perfectly. On RF97, I just wish it maintains the tension a bit longer and more comfort.

Yonex Poly Tour Pro 125
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
I've hit side by side with yellow YPTP 1.25 for a fair comparison.
Feel: both are unique. Hard to choose one.
Spin: UC generated more
Power: UC has more power but wasn't necessarily good thing for my powerful racquet.
Control: UC has a bit of springy response. YPTP has better control but depth control was easier with UC due to extra spins.
Comfort: both didn't cause any arm pain but YPTP was better due to round profile.(less dense string bed)
Tension Stability: about same. However, as tension dropped, UC changed power and spin amount.
