String RS Paris Octagon 1.25
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
53/53 lbs Babolat Pure Strike 16x19 (Project One7) (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
 (>10 hrs.)
Strung on my Superstringer E20 without problems. You can hardly feel the octagonal shape. Feels rather round. Looks and feels a lot like the Big Star Alu.
Highlight is the excellent control which comes in combination with very good tension maintenance. Power is not really high, which is not necessarily a bad aspect, and spin is pretty decent.
If you are looking for a durable, control oriented string, you should try this.
Many thanks for the sample!

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
I prefer low-powered, profiled strings, so I was looking at this string for some time. And the string lived up to my expectations. But it did not have a particular wow effect. Spin was almost very good. Feel was very direct and crisp. Good control, low power, everything quite reasonable.
But unfortunately no love at first sight. ;)
Maybe that was also due to the relatively thick gauge. I normally play 1.20 mm strings.

Typical stringing behavior for a poly. The edges are not particularly sharp, so it was easy to string.
This string plays like a blend of Ultra Cable and Silverstring. Less spin compared to Ultra Cable, higher power, equal control, better touch. Compared to the Silverstring, better spin, slightly lower power, better control, slightly stiffer touch.
I cannot say much about comfort since I don't have a sensitive arm.
Tension maintenance was excellent for the gauge.
Extremely good product from WeissCannon, thanks a lot for the sample!

I received the blue version as a sample (thanks to Gamma) and liked it as much as the lime version. Highly control oriented string with good spin potential and moderate power. My team mates like it as well. Recommendable as a main string in a hybrid combination.

Test Conditions Tension Racquet

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
n.a.
The string has extremely sharp edges so stringing is no fun. The edges also take a lot of felt off the balls. The string seems thicker than 1.20 mm.
The name Rock'n Power is a bit misleading. If there is one thing that this string does not have, it is power. On the other hand it provides great spin and control.
I personally miss some liveliness, the string feels too stiff and dull for me.
But I can imagine that hard hitters might like this string...
Thanks to WeissCannon for the sample!

String Big Star Alu Soft Spin 1.23
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
53/53 lbs Wilson BLX Juice Pro (MS, 16/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Excellent depth control on topspin strokes, good power, works nice on serves. I only lacked some precision on touchy shots like slice and volleys. Here the string felt too soft and did not grab the ball sufficiently.
Durability and tension stability are absolutely great. I cut out the strings after 8 hours of play but could have played them a lot longer.
Overall a really great string. For me it just lacked the last kick but for many players this string will be perfect, so highly recommendable!

Test Conditions Tension Racquet

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
After the recent hype around this string I got hold of a sample too. What can I say? I can absolutely understand the positive reviews ;)
The string provides superb control and spin potential like I haven't seen before. The edged profile in combination with the special coating that facilitates snap-back provide incredible topspin!
Power is not really high but absolutely sufficient for me.
This is certainly not a touchy string, but for me it works very well. It could be a problem for players with a sensitive arm as it is not very soft but pretty crisp.
I can only second the comments from the other testers about durability and tension stability - simply superb...
