I'm currently using Alu 1.25 in my Fischer Pro 1. Im thinking of trying something else in my racquets, maybe a hybrid with Alu or something else (but not gut). I am a baseliner, but I like to attack short balls and come to the net. I'll probably hybrid with 2 Luxilon strings, maybe Supersense, Ace, Original, TiMo, or something else. What do you think?

Just buy a pack of the ALU-Touch. It's both ALU Power and Supersense in the pack if that is what you want to try. None of the others in a hybrid gives much if any benefit at all.

How is Alu Touch better than Alu, and why?

I mean this sincerely if he says it is then believe it. He's an expert.

When you're talking about "touch" or "feel", you'll never be able to compare them by reading about them. Even Thomas, who knows a tremendous amount, can't describe how YOU will perceive the differences in touch and/or feel. He's recommending that you TRY these 2 strings. He's not saying you'll LIKE them. No one can say for sure that you'll absolutely like them. So, if you trust his judgement, which you should, buy it and try it.

I got Alu Touch and I,m playing with it this afternoon. I've got Alu mains @54 and Supersense x's @54. I'll post on how it plays compared to Alu.

Its not great. There is not much spin at all. I still prefer Alu, more spin, power and control. A-T is easier on the arm but I still prefer Alu Power.
