Great string, I never had such a good feel with a poly before. I will try the string in different hybrid combinations, e.g. with Isospeed Professional or Isospeed Control, as well as the Alu Touch Hybrid. If you can afford this string you should definitely try it.

The Signum is a bit worse in every category except power. I had much better control with the Luxilon.

The Alu Power is the perfect combination of power, durability, and control. Comfort depends on the temperature. During the winter season, the string is tremendously stiff at cold temperatures, but at temperatures above 16°C (61°F) it's no problem. Great spin. However the string demands an advanced technique since it reveals every off-center hit and forces you to concentrate on your technique. I made some advancements to my game due to this. The Alu Power is the best string I've tried during the past few years.

This is a great string. People need to keep in mind that this string IS a polyester string. This string is not for everyone. You really need to hit a heavy ball to get any use out of this string. If you play with synthetic, or have elbow trouble, you probably will not like poly. All poly is stiff not just Luxilon. When it comes down to polys, Luxilon is the best by far. Stringing is actually easier than any other poly that I have strung. The feel is unbelievable for this string. This string also holds tension remarkably well. If you play at a high level I highly recommend this string. It can improve you accuracy and control. I donít know about the power, I donít really need that, more interested in control.
