I normally play a Babolat Aero Pro Drive 2013 strung with MSV Focus-Hex mains and Yonex Poly Tour Pro crosses. For me this is the perfect combo. However I recently tried a Head YouTek Prestige Pro and strung it with Alu Power. Due to the higher swing weight of the Prestige Pro I get massive power and still feel like being in great control. I'm heavily considering switching to this setup. Only thing that bothers me is the high price of the Alu Power.

Easy to string. What can I say? I love this string! It offers the best performance when playing at a high level. I can swing for the fences and every shot just stays in with good power and spin. I feel in the zone when this is in my racket. Unfortunately its god-like characteristics don't last forever. After about 3-4 hours its doesn't perform quite like it used to. Even though it's still a good solid string in this stage, you feel let down because of what you were just experiencing. However, this is still the string to top and if I could afford reel after reel I wouldn't use anything else.

My favourite string when freshly strung. Nothing compares to it. It does everything extremely well. I usually go for the Big Banger Original over Alu Power as it is cheaper and performs for longer whilst providing great control with good spin and decent power.

Very easy to string, also tying knots was easy.
The first two to three hours this string is awesome. Great touch and fantastic power. But then its characteristics decline significantly. It still plays solid but not as excellent as in the beginning. Control is consistent on a high levvel. I cannot confirm a lack of comfort, but I am not very sensitive in this regard. Great durability and tension stability.
It's a pity that the performance drops so quickly, especially when considering the price...
