I have to say that my first 2-3 hours play with this string was pure heaven - you will not find any multi or poly that can compare to this one. You can hit any shot and spin will force the ball to land within baseline and it has some nasty pop so you can hit hard flat ball - EXCELLENT string for those who can restring each 3 hours as after those 3 hrs, it will lose all spin it had before and it becomes baseball bat.

At first I was really amazed by the amount of power I could generate with the Alu Power. However I had strung too low so many balls went long. I refrained from trying the string at a higher tension because after a few hours I had pain in my arm which I didn't have when using my other frame.
Nevertheless the Alu Power is a great string, even if the comfort was very bad for me.

Normal stringing behavior. Played indoors. After the first few hits I thought "wow not bad". Feel was good, control, power, and tension stability were very good. Unfortunately I cannot rate durability.
Great string - only downside is the relatively high price.

I could not detect a big difference between the Alu Power and other polys except tension stability which is really good with the Alu Power. If that's worth the 150 difference for you, then okay, but for me it's not really worth it. I wouldn't say this string is superior to any other currently on the market.

Comparison relates to the MSV Co-Focus 1.23 tested at the same tension with the same balls at the same conditions.

Strung in two pieces on a drop weight machine without problems.
The string provided tremendous power during the first 2 hours of play, with good control. After 2 hours the control was lost very quickly. I personally lacked spin potential and my arm was hurting from the Alu Power, so I cut it out after 3 hours of play. At that time the string showed significant notches.
Recommendable for hard hitters with strong arms.
