And let's throw some black5edge in there for good measure

Ok. This is a full bed at 51/49.

Stringing- easy for a poly. It isn't as noticeably shaped as something like bhbr, so it isn't bad. Also weaves pretty easy.

Groundstrokes- interesting. This string in a full bed is very different than a hybrid. From the ground, this stuff felt nice. It did feel like it didn't give as much as I'd like, but it had plenty of spin as well as ample pop. It had a nice consistent response (which is something that is sometimes missing with full poly). Great for baselining.

Serves- this is a tough one for me. Now I make my living off of hitting places with different spins on my serve. I don't normally overpower people. This string has all the spin I need, but it lacks a little power on kicks. Slice serves are really nice with this stuff.
Overall- 7.5/10

Volleys- here is where it is completely different as a full bed. It doesn't give too much (it's not stiff per say, but it doesn't give) and this really takes away from volleys. I have sound fundamentals at net, so I can pretty much get away with it, but players that rely on hands are not going to be happy with this string.

Durability- again, nothing special physically as far as durability, but it Is weisscannon, so tension maintenance is second only to signum pro.

Softness- 1 being the softest, 10 being the stiffest
Overall- 7/10

Like I said, as a full bed this stuff is really different than as a hybrid. It still plays well as a full bed, but you do give up touch at net. Great for base liners.
Overall- 8.5/10.
