I liked this string, especially on the serve, where it provided great control and power. Also great from the baseline. However I cannot get used to the feel. Otherwise this would be my new standard string since it keeps its tension very well and the strings don't move. The string lasts me long enough considering the price.

One of the best strings I've tried so far. Stringing was no problem. Great control and power. I didn't have any arm problems. Since I'm not a string breaker I can't say much about the durability. Great string for me, and it's worth the money.

I've intensively tested the Alu Power 1.25 from May until mid July 2006 on clay court in matches and practice sessions during very high temperatures. My impressions from the winter season were not only confirmed but the string performed even better: precise, powerful strokes with extra touch and great spin.
But as soon as the temperatures drop, the string becomes board-like and you need to string softer (23 kp). This string is only great when the temperatures are constant. I bought a reel, which is expensive, but the great quality and consistency outperforms everything during summer.

Since 2007 there is a cheaper alternative: MSV Co-Focus 1.23 and Focus Hex 1.23 - nice price and great performance.

The best string I've played so far. I highly recommend stringing at the lowest tension you can take since the loss of control is surprisingly low. A highly enjoyable string that's worth its price.
