Has anyone played with this string and could you possibly compare it to NXT based on comfort and durability?

I use 16g in a new frame Iím recently hitting with. Since the frame itself is new to me, some of my comments might be from the combination of frame and string.

The whole string bed looks shiny as if it had a glossy finish. It seems to have an initial tension drop, but holds nicely after break-in. It plays comfortable and cushioned, while still offers some good feel. Spin is above average, which may have to do with the textured finish. I now have over 10 hours with it and the string starts to feel mushy. String movement is ok after break in.

Last time I hit with the NXT was quite a while ago and didnt like it too much. The Gripper is more comfort and has a better feel. Also the NXT string movement is mcuh worse.
