Tested on clay and carpet. It's pretty vacant, the strings don't move. I didn't feel incredible power generation, but maybe it's just my topspin strokes. Not the right string for me. Although the control and precision was very good. Next I will test the Signum Pro Poly Plasma.

Head Rip Control

This string is much more expensive than Head Rip Control so Alu Power is way overpriced considering the performance. But I'm not saying it's a bad string, it's just too expensive to me. I like Rip Control almost better (if you don't consider the price).

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
A big improvement on the Big Banger Original. Strung at 56lbs on my Babolat Pure Control team. Was much softer on the arm and I found it gave good power and spin but I have found that with the majority of Big Banger you get insufficient control and comfort so would only recommend it if you're a truly awesome player. Only then will the strings feel how you expect.

 (6-10 hrs.)
Stringing was OK, a bit difficult towards the last crosses.
Durability is related to outdoors game on clay. The string lasts much longer when played indoors on carpet.
Also plays great in combination with natural gut if you like. However I've grown up with polys only.

I've also tested the Luxilon Big Banger XP which is also very good, but the Alu Power is a bit more explosive. However the comfort is significantly better with the XP.

I played outdoors on clay with these strings and in my opinion, these strings are way too stiff to be used full set in a racquet. But on my other racquet, I crossed it with Tecnifibre NRG2 17 and now that dull feel was gone but the spin potential of the Luxilon was still present. Although it is a great string, I would recommend this string hybridded.
