The grey one. I think it might be luxilon alu. I got this racquet off the bay and I don't know what the main is.

I think you might be right. Do you see any markings on the string indicating the gauge and/or the brand type?

no markings. Could be from a reel or could have worn off.

Usually Alu is shiny when in direct light/sunlight. Since in the picture it seems that there is not much light, the strings probably wouldn't shine as much.

Looks like that to me. But there's a lot of strings that look like that, but considering Luxilon's popularity, I think this is a safe guess, the print wears off of it quickly as well.
