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.

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.

Really a great string, especially due to its unique power. All other characteristics are great as well. Durability rating is for use on clay and carpet.
Only downside is the price. Even on a reel this string is too expensive.

Basically this is not a bad string, but too expensive on the long run. Not a good value. Not easy on the arm either since it is quite stiff.
