I had to get used to this string for a few hours, due to the low tension and the power, but then it was fine. Great control for hard exact shots, and to my surprise the string was also very good at volleys and touch shots. Highly recommendable!

Maybe I had strung the Original at bit too tight back then, but I would prefer the Alu Power in any case.

Great control, good durability and power. However the high price is unjustified. The Original is much better and the price is okay.

The Original provides much better touch and feel. Spin generation is much easier. Additionally the Original provides better comfort.

I've been using strings from Babolat, Völkl etc. for 15 years, but this string is sensational. Not only just because many ATP players use it, as it is often mocked. Great job Luxilon! Should be strung a bit tighter for more precise volleys. Also better for forcing the player to swing fast through the serve (as has been shown by tests). Power is nothing without control!

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.
