Which string maintains tension better, luxilon big banger original 16 or luxilon alu power 16L and how much better is the tension maintanence? Also, if you could do a brief comparison between the two that would be great. I broke full alu power in 2 days, overall, i would like better tension maintanence, durability, and crispiness.

According to this the tension maintenance is better one original, and original is more durable.

IMO they are relatively the same longevity and tension maintenance.

The price savings is only 30-40$ for a full reel so I went with alu power rough.

ALU power holds tension better IMO

See stringforum. IMO Alu holds tension better but it is close. Further, it is alittle like comparing apples
and oranges in that tension maontenence is largely a functionnof diameter and the Original can be purchased in 15 ga. I personally prefer Alu, but I should also note that I have switched to Weiss Cannon.
