I like this string, however I suggest - as recommended by Luxilon - that it be strung at least 10% softer than normal strings (except your name is Terminator). This way it will also be friendlier to your arm (if you have a sensitive arm like me). Great string for baseliners!

I'd like to compare this string with the Luxilon Big Banger Original, one of my favorite strings. Biggest advantage of the Original is the durability, but the Alu Power's durability is satisfying too. But I'll have to test it on clay since there the durability is decreased a lot.
Recommendable to any baseline player who is not prone to tennis elbow.
As far as stringing is concerned, it's like a wire, as other polys usually are.
Highly recommendable overall, only negative aspect is - as known for Luxilon strings - its price.

Very long lasting string, not a problem on the arm, softer than most polyester strings, fantastic spin, best polyester string on the market!

Great string. Only downfall is price. Fine on the arm. Great tension stability and durability. Played beautifully even at lower tension than normal, but next time I think I will string tighter as I had no trouble with comfort on the arm.

Bit better control than Big Banger Original and bit better spin potential but overall pretty similar.

Sensational string, the best I've ever played. Nothing compares to it. Okay, a bit pricey but it should be worth the money.
