It suppose to play like Lux Alu Power but be more comfortable. I played with it a few times and at first it was great, but after a while I noticed my elbow getting sore. I've had elbow pain in the past but not recently.
I strung them @ 58 lbs on BLX90 as I usually string in 60-65 range. I also used Lux Alu Power in mains, and Wilson Synthetic Gut crosses in the same frame and there was no elbow pain. I wanted to try full Luxilon because Lux cut through the crosses after a while.
Has anybody used these strings and had any elbow or shoulder discomfort?

Fluoro, while more comfortable than ALU Power, is still too stiff for me.

More comfortable than Fluoro is Ace, and even more comfortable is M2 Pro.

Flouro is way comfy for me, but, its still a poly alebit softer.

Sounds like poly is not ideal for you.

I hit with Fluoro in the past. I felt this string would go completely dead in a short time. Whether you believe poly loses it's resiliency or not, this string feels to me like it loses all resiliency.

Big Ace Micro and a softer poly that plays decent longer than Fluoro. There are many better options IMO.

I did like it in a hybrid, even though it was Alu Power 16L. I also think hybrid setup was better for volleying. They say you get most qualites of the main strings in a hybrid so I thought full bed of Alu Power Fluoro would play similar.
One thing I liked about them is there's almost no string movement.
