Played this string for several seasons. It's pretty good for a while, with decent feel and good spin potential. Control is good as well, until...... The tension stability is just troublesome. Even though I have played with it until it breaks, it's hard to. It loses so much tension that it becomes very spring like. Best to restring often, every few sets if possible.

Honestly, this is the best string you can use in a full string bed. Its playing characteristics are great, even spin is excellent for a smooth string. Power, control and its perfect tension stability make this string clearly the best out there :D
The price is high but it is justified.

Good string with great feel. However the Alu Power Rough provided significantly better power, spin, and control.

Comparison relates to the Luxilon Alu Power Rough, which I liked much better (tested in parallel, practice and matches). Even power was better. The normal Alu Power was almost disappointing compared to the Alu Power Rough.

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.
