Good tension stability during the first 3 days, then it dropped significantly. Nice power and comfort for a poly during the first week, but then power and comfort dropped.

Lively string, it provides a lot of power but lacks a bit of control and spin generation.
Very good price/performance ratio.

A string with lots of character, it's very comfortable, and the spin is really good with the greasy surface. Plays very nice for players who don't like monofilaments due to the stiffness.

Compared to the Poly Plasma, it offers on one hand what you lose on another hand... But Energy is a soft polyester, with lots of advantages in terms of comfort, power. Tension stability is not very good, but the string is cheap due to its qualities, and for the players who own a machine, it's the perfect one.

Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 16L
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
I made the mistake of stringing the Polystar Energy as I would string a normal Polyester. I shouldn't have lowered the tension, that's why the control was not as good as with the Alu. One thing that's for sure, this string has more power, feel, and comfort but less control and spin than Alu Power. I also think that it's not as harmful on your arm as the Alu Power.
