alu power comes ina rough and a regular. not sure if the rough does anything, it doesnt look like it does

Rough doesnt do anything. Well alu power lost tension pretty fast for me and moved like hell, it also broke after 1 1/2 right on the sweetspot. So id go for something better thats cheaper too

I love alu power, I think its a fantastic string.
However, I hate Cyberflash...that being said they do have the same stiffness rating and tension loss isn't that far off. People that say they're the same I think have to be crazy, cyberflash from my experience was much stiffer and gave much less topspin and seemed like it lost playability much quicker.
I'd say give alu power a shot, the rough is a bit softer and does give a bit more spin. Whether it is from the texture or not I can't say. I prefer the rough for it feeling a bit softer and spinnier to me.

i use alu power rough and i loved it would not have it any other way....but it's all up to you, my opinion is you should atleast try it.

it sure is a good string but for that money there are others with the same qualities, in my opinion is way overpriced, sure if you string a lot...

Tried both Alu Power and Rough and personally I think they are over rated - just because most pros use them. After a while they feel dead.

Prefer Big Banger original with a good syn gut.

I don't see any difference with Original and Rough, unless you go Floro, that's the real only difference.

I bought a 660 reel of BB Original for some odd reason, geez lasts forever.
