n.a.
As recommended I lowered the tension by 3 lbs, unfortunately that was too soft for my likes. The string provides a lot of power, and with increasing playing time I had trouble controlling that power. I don't blame the string for that, it was due to the low tension.
Spin was excellent, angle shots worked well and I was able to hit some heavy topspin.
Next time I would string higher!

String Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power Rough 16L
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
53/53 lbs Head Graphene XT Speed Pro (MP, 18/20)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
I guess my expectations were too high. Compared to Solinco Tour Bite or Kirschbaum Helix, the Alu Rough was inferior in almost all aspects.
The Tour Bite provides significantly beter spin and control due to the ball bite, and the Helix feels nicer with a more direct feedback.
The only positive aspect: the longer I hit with this string, the more it improved. Maybe it plays better at lower tensions. Nevertheless I lacked some bite and it did not work well on angles.

The profiled Tour Bite provided me with much better spin potential and thus also with better control.
