this guy at my school said he'll string my sticks for me with alu power spin for 25 bux. I wanted alu rough, but he didnt have it. so how does the spin compare to the rough version? more spin? how does it play on volleys and touch shots? and serve of course

guy at your school. is he a amateur ? Alu spin is supposed to give you more spin than Alu rough. not sure how it plays though. never liked the alu rough due to its stiffness.

Alu Power Spin is a pentagon shaped string. Alu Power Rough is a round string with small textured sections all along it.

I have never used Alu Power Spin, but I play with a full bed of Alu Power Rough. I absolutely love Alu Power Rough - I get a great deal of bite and action on the ball with it.

I am sure Spin is a very good string as well though.

Take care.

I just strung Alu Spin for my doubles partner. He couldn't wait to cut it out. Of course, that's just his opinion.

All I've heard about Alu Spin is that it sucks. That's just what I've heard though.
