Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
No problems during stringing. Played on several different days outdoors on clay court, practice and competition.
First I strung it at 24 kg. But unfortunately I lacked control and there was too much power. So I strung a second set at 25.5 kg. That provided still enough power and better control, but still not enough. Spin potential didn't seem very good either. I liked the good touch though.

The term "spin" in the string's name is not justified. After stringing, the clover shape seems more like a flattened string with a longitudinal groove. It plays rather dull and dead and lacks touch.

Easy to string.
All characteristics are on a good level but no feature really stands out. Solid string. Unfortunately it lacks tension stability. Also the string seems to lose its profile rather quickly and thus loses its spin potential.
But overall a good value.

Spin and control are really enormous. On the other hand, the string feels pretty wire-like. There was no change in characteristics even after several hours of play. But now after 10 hours of play it seems as if control has decreased, but also spin potential, which still means that there is plenty of spin.
I really enjoyed the Ultra Cable and will try it in a hybrid too.

Stringing was a bit of a torture, I even got blisters from pulling the crosses.
The string provides good power and spin is quite alright too.
Unfortunately it lacks control and feel.
After 2 hours of play the strings are starting to move.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
No problems during stringing. Used it in the mains with Yonex Poly Tour Pro crosses which I had used in other hybrids with various polys in the mains already.
The first two hours I was very happy with this combo. Great control and very good spin potential. Perfect depth of my baseline strokes. Almost made it to my new go-to setup, however after only 2 hours of play the stringbed went quite spongy and I lost a lot of control and precision. On the other hand it was very hot (above 30°C). I'll probably try it again when the temperatures are not that extreme.

Easy to string, quite some stretch.
Tried it at 24 kg as well as at 26.5 kg. At 24 kg it feels nice and soft but lacks control. At 26.5 kg I still lacked control but felt slightly uncomfortable.
Power was average.
