It's looking nice and white like Thunderblast, but it doesn't seem to be fraying
PPA isn't immune from fraying, but it's definitely highly resistant to fraying for a multi. If you do see fraying it's micro-fraying like RIP Control. It eventually wears down till it''s paper thin and then it snaps. It doesn't move much and it notches, which seems to lock it in place. In terms of durability, it's up there next to RIP Control. I never tried Thunderblast, but I know that the black dye on black PPA seems to act similarly to what Mikeler described about Thunderblast. It comes off and you can see where you've been hitting the ball, and the string appears white underneath.
