ALU Power and ALU Power Rough are now $12.95, original price was $15.99.
It's not just at TW, but other retailers too. Reel price is now $199, Anyone know if this is a permanent drop in price?

Are they bring out a new flagship poly?
Is ALU Power/Rough going to be close out, hence the drop in price?
Maybe they can't complete with other polys?
Anyone have any ideas to the price drop?

EDIT: here's the thread from last year about the same sale from Luxilon, stock up for next year's sale!!!

Nothing new.

They did this last year as well.

Prices went right back up after the sale.

They're just trying to compete with other poly makers.

I tell you what's interesting - if you play competitive tennis (LTA / USTA) you just NEVER see many players on the tournament circuit playing with Lux. Everyone just seems to be strung with multi-coloured poly of their choice that just isn't Luxilon.

So the simple question is: stock up or not?
If this is a permanent price reduction, it wouldn't make sense to stock up.
If this sale is only going to last a month or so, might be a good idea to stock up until next year's sale?

The sale was also there last year.

Stock up, if you plan on buying a reel or two.....

I will buy a 220 meter reel of Alu Rough.
Fluoro is on sale at TW Europe, so will also order a reel of that.....

Love LUX string - they just play so nice for 10-12 hours in hybrids with VS Team in the mains.
After 12 hours, they break any way - so no big problem :D

Just bought a 220 meter reel of Alu power last month, but at a reduced price, so no big loss for me.

It could be the simple answer that Luxilon is changing the packaging and they sell out the remaining stock of the old layout ??

This is for example how the new Alu Power set look like;

Cos more people discovered Alu is crap and therefore sales are dropping. So Lux made this desperate attempt to win back some customers. Don't buy into it folks.:wink:

they are simply trying to get more people to actually try lux and thus get "hooked" on lux. if they do they will pay up later in the year.

It is the same thing as last year. Ends in a few days-- Sept. 12 I think.

No big deal. There strings are still a fortune.

Ok Parker, you say you're 12 on the junior boards and you don't even play competitve, what the hell?

Best time to buy a reel, 18 full restrings or 36 hybrids - can't argue with that value for the best string on the market.

He's referring to me, because he knows I use this hybrid and has been doing so for a long time.

He uses every occasion possbile to provoke and annoy me - I have sent numerous complaints about his behavior to the mods of this site, but he's still here and continues his attacks on me and other guys in here.

I can only read his posts, when other people quote him - because the guy is on my ignore list for obvious reasons :twisted:
