Default Kelist strings

Can anyone answer this please.
I asked my stringer to string me up with luxilon ALU. On close inspection the strings say Kelist power durable. I googled they and it looks like a generic brand of luxilon. He swears itís the company that makes Luxilon. Should I trust him or am I being taken? Thx

It's basically some cheap china strings. I personally tried a set in the past because I bought like 10 sets on ebay. I ended up returning all of them after trying it. It absolutely does not feel like luxilon or any quality strings.

Thanks, thatís what I thought. My stringer swears up and down that Kelist is the brand that makes luxilon. He must not know about the internet. Not sure why he just didnít confess when I called him out but he is really sticking to his story.

It might be true that they make them, but who cares, right? I have read that Gamma makes Prince, but their two syn guts play differently. You asked for one thing and got another. Bad practice!

Luxilon is made in Belgium. Kelist is in China.
It is conceivable that Luxilon may be producing some cheaper strings in China, but there is a distinction.

IF he charged you the same price as a Lux string job, he is getting over. Even if he charged you less, I would not be happy at with that move as you asked for a certain string by name, not type.

@Trinity
Neither Prince nor Gamma manufactures their Syn Gut.
They design it & other companies including Gosen & TOA have and still make various of their strings
