Here we go.

Xcel premium strung at 56.

Stringing- easy. Really easy, actually. No problems, no friction, and no kinking.

Groundstrokes- nice. It has that x-1 effect where you get lots of controlled power. Great pop, nice spin, and flat shots are good as well.
Overall- 8/10

Serves- great. Like I said, this string has all sorts of controlled power. Flat and slice serves are awesome, but kicks lacked a little spin.
Overall- 9/10

Volleys- again, really good. Touch shots were great, crunched volleys were solid. Overheads were a little overpowered.
Overall- 8.5/10

Durability- average for a multi, maybe a little better
Overall- 6/10

Stiffness- 1 being softest, 10 being stiffest.
Overall- 2.5/10

This is truly a great multi. It has plenty of controlled power, holds tension pretty well, soft, and a good response and feel.
Overall- 9/10
