 (10 hrs.)
Normal stringing behavior, almost no stretch.
Played on clay court at 25°C with new Head No. 1 balls.
Initially the string felt very stiff at this tension, got better after 30 minutes of play.
Very good control string, especially at this price. I bought a reel and will string it also for my club mates.

n.a.  (>8 hrs.)
I normally string at 23.5/23 kg and strung the Big Star Alu at 20/20 kg following the recommendations. No problems during stringing. Rather stiff, almost no stretch.
The recommendation of 10-20% less tension is good - I went down by approx. 15% and that worked well.
The string provides very good control and great touch as well as tension stability. Power and spin are rather average. I would have expected less comfort due to the stiffness of the string, but that wasn't an issue.
Overall a great string for all players who do not require an extreme topspin string.

This is a special string! It provides a rather harsh feel and great precision, and you must not string it at a high tension. At first I strung it at 22 kg on my Babolat Drive Tour (100 sq in), which was okay, but at 20 kg it performed much better. I instantly had good confidence in my shots due to the reliable precision that the string provides.

Compared to the Yonex, the Big Star Alu provided a much more direct, crisp, precise feel, but less spin. It may be due to the smooth surface. But spin is still sufficient. And I believe anyway that spin potential is kind of overrated. For me, precision and tension stability are more important. And these are the categories in which the Big Star Alu shines.

A unique string which shines in the tension maintenance department, but it also provides very good touch. It is rather low powered, not explosive, and feels a bit dull, but that is what I liked especially at high ball speeds.
