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.

Great string, this string doesn't have any negative aspects. A lot of people told me that this string is very stiff and hard on the elbow and shoulder, but in my opinion its comfort is better than the average of monofilament strings.

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.
