I think everything has been said already about the Alu Power.
Plays great for 1 - 1.5 hours, then just average. Compared to modern polys it lacks tension stability. It provides lots of power which can be controlled very well initially. If it wasn't that expensive and maintained its characteristics 3 times as long, this would be my standard string. But today there are a lot of better alternatives for the Alu Power which must have been on the market for around 20 years now.
The only reason I own a reel of it is because my clients want it.

One of few polys that offer both control and power. I have trouble getting similar power from other polys, but this one offers both.

Played on clay court with various types of balls.

The Alu Power reminds me of the new PEEK strings - great tension maintenance and a relatively stiff feedback initially.

What's interesting is that the power is really high when you hit in the sweetspot. Control is excellent and I had great precision in my shots. Feel is similar to Kirschbaum Max Power, very direct.
