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.

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.

60/61 lbs Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT (MP, 16/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
When first strung feels really good, especially at higher tensions in a racket with a headsize above 95 square inches. Great pop on the forehand, and great for getting that bit of extra power on a flat serve.
The only possible problem is that it is so durable that you might have to cut it out!

I cut after 4 hours, because the tension was 41 lbs and could not put the ball on the court.
I got my best topspin serve of all time. The next time I'll try 48 lbs.
