Has anyone played with this stuff? How hard is it? How does it compare to the Jescar?

I ordered some but haven't used it yet. I usually use Jescar EVO Gold. I won't be fretting for a couple weeks but I'll keep this post in mind when I do.

It’s not as hard as EVO Gold, seems a bit harder than regular fret wire but not enough to move away from the Jescar . If I had a client that insisted on non gold frets and tuners I’d use it but until then I’ll be sticking to EVO Gold.

I received a sleeve of comparable medium "cryogenic" fretwire similar in dimensions to the Jescar. I can't comment on durability, but spending a few minutes cutting little bits of it off and the Jescar, I can't really notice a difference. Whether it is more durable is another question entirely. But there wasn't any aha moment of clarity that it was something remarkably different.
