I currently use the Dunlop AG 300 with full ALU and love it. But Im probobly going to get the 300 Tour when it comes out and am a tad worried about the spin factor. I am considering Original cuz I remember the spin was RIDICULOUS with it. Does anyone have any experience with either of these in a dense string pattern?

I overall prefer ALU above Original in every category. I just like the feel more, power etc. Original is stiffer, but I didn't feel much difference in spin either produced. I'd say the main difference is feel and power as Original is lower powered.

And btw, if you can produced spin with an open pattern, you can also do it with a dense pattern, all technique i tell you!

Original has less power than Alu and is slightly more durable and stiffer. Alu is better IMO. If you want spin give Alu rough a try!

I second that! Alu Power Rough bites the ball very well.

ALU is so much better than BBO, no question. I'm only using PolyStar Energy/Turbo because it is so much cheaper and more comfortable.
