Weiss Cannon Ultra Cable - need some feedback

I've used UC about 6 or 8 times. Always strung on a constant pull and I've tried both no-pre and pre-stretched. Pre-stretched made it last a little longer but not a lot. I use a PS85 and strung at about 45lbs which is similar to stringing at about 53lbs on a 95 sq in frame or thereabouts.

A key issue with the characteristics of this sort of string is it really only shows it's best side with decent swing speeds. But if you have decent swing speed you'll also loosen the strings quicker too and these loosen particularly quickly. If you want generally better life-span then try Blue Rock. If you want much better life span but can handle slightly less spin then Black 5 Edge is a good option to try.
I agree. I had a fresh string job and let the string bed settle in for 2 hours or so. Then I would play a set or two with amazing spin and feel but if I played the match the next day, the balls would just feel like they were spraying everywhere. I had to slow down my swing speed instead of taking aggressive cuts with it because I was afraid of where it would end up. Also while stringing it, it was sharp and if you are the type who hits tennis rackets on your knees occasionally... DONT or you will cut yourself.

:unsure:
 
I have 4 friends that I string for who use this string full bed on their racquets. I haven't heard them complain about it. Everytime we meet I would ask them and they always say they're happy with it. So...

That's a great string. For sure. ;)
But now I'm so much happy with the Grapplesnake CES/Liquid Neon Dust hybrid. It's a UC v2.0!!! Fantastic combo.

Everyone has their own opinions ^_^ I just know that I ended up leaning towards the Solinco Hyper G hype train due to its playability, tension maintenace, and spin. It lasts much better in my opinion at the 4.5 to 5.0 levels of tennis.

I am getting to try the Grapplesnake CES Neon (Square mains) and the Liquid Neon (hexagonal crosses) at 45/48 lbs. I am hoping it will play like Ultracable and last much longer in terms of playability. At some point, I will post a review about it.

I think you'll like it. I played with UC before and had the same opinion that its playability was really short. I've played with the CES hybrid for about 7-8 hours of match play so far and it's still going strong

That's what I'm hoping for! I measured the DT right off the stringer and again 2 hours off the stringer. I will get to play 2 hours tonight with the fresh string bed, then measure the DT again, then rinse and repeat for Wed, Thurs, Fri :D

Let's see how much punishment these strings can handle xD @Grapplesnake USA Official . I look forward to the results!
