It gets a little difficult to string on the crosses. Three of my friends who use Alu Power had arm problems. Overall this is a good string, but I would say the reel price is WAY too high for the performance of the string.

One of the best strings for advanced players. Unique touch and power. Suitable for all surfaces. I can confirm this with my many years of high performance tennis experience.

This string is a nice all around string but when it comes to comfort and feel this string pales in comparison to the new Kirschbaum Hybrix and Kirschbaum Pro Line No. II that I have tried.

 (10 hrs.)
Stringing was easy, just a bit hard to weave during the last crosses due to its stiffness. But it was okay overall.

Played indoors on carpet and clay. The string lasted around 10 hours, which is quite short for me. Usually I have to cut out the strings. But since the Alu Power maintains its tension very well, I could play it until the end. It broke in the center.
The string provides perfect power, excellent control, and decent feel. Spin potential was good. Only comfort was not there, I got arm problems :(
If that doesn't improve, I will probably combine it with a multifilament for the summer.
Conclusion: If you don't care about comfort, this is probably the best poly available for you.
