Cool string! Plays similar to the RPM Blast, but provides less spin but better power. Comfort is perfect even at 25/24 kg in a 18x20 pattern. At this price a valid alternative to RPM Blast.

String WeissCANNON Ultra Cable 1.23
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
55/53 lbs Head YouTek Prestige MP (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
The string is very stiff during stringing and hurts my fingers. It also seems rather thick which might be due to the square shape.
Played on clay court with Dunlop Fort Tournament balls.
The first 30 minutes of play were a disaster and I wanted to cut it out immediately. But after half an hour I either adapted to the string or the string improved. I had incredible power - almost too much on flat strokes. Spin was okay, not as good as with Babolat RPM Blast.
Once you get used to the power you can create lots of controlled pressure. After approx. 3 hours of play I cannot comment on the durability yet. However it does look much better than RPM Blast after 3 hours of heavy spin hitting.
I will still stick with the RPM Blast since the Ultra Cable provides too much power for me.
I'd recommend this string for players hitting with lots of spin and looking for support in tricky situations where you need to be able to hit a deep ball.

I normally use the Babolat RPM Blast 1.20. The Volcano Heat provides better power, comfort, and durability. Initially it feels very stiff, but it settled after around 1 hour of play. Certainly worth a test. Solid string, suitable for a broad range of players.

Great spin but unfortunately very poor tension maintenance. After approx. 2 hours of play there were significant notches, leading to a decreased spin potential and early breakage.
