    I have been hitting for quite some time now with Pro hurricane tour 16g and I think it's time to spice things up. How does the power rough string play in terms of spin and feel compared to the PHT?

    A little more spin but I find it dies quicker than PHT which is more consitent (although poorer) from beginning to end.

    I prefer Alu power as I find a full bed of the rough stiffer in a dense string bed.

    I used to use Pht all the time and still like it but Alu way out performs it for that short time its fresh.

    But if i wasnt restringing very often then i prefer a dead PHT to a dead Alu.

    i loved this string and hit some great shots with it. it really lets you swing away.

    price was the problem for me as i was only getting about 6 hours of play out of them at best. at $30ish a pop to get it strung was insane. even stringing on my own, still expensive.

    imo, if you want to try other strings, there are many cheaper options that gives you similar performance.

    great string. the only bad thing is the tension loss

    How quickly would you say these strings lose tension compared to PHT?

    Do you eventually cut it out?

    i've read people getting 6-10 hours before the tension loss was too much. mine snapped in 6 hours.
