    Which string maintains tension better, luxilon big banger original 16 or luxilon alu power 16L and how much better is the tension maintanence? Also, if you could do a brief comparison between the two that would be great. I broke full alu power in 2 days, overall, i would like better tension maintanence, durability, and crispiness.

    IMO they are relatively the same longevity and tension maintenance.

    The price savings is only 30-40$ for a full reel so I went with alu power rough.

    See stringforum. IMO Alu holds tension better but it is close. Further, it is alittle like comparing apples
    and oranges in that tension maontenence is largely a functionnof diameter and the Original can be purchased in 15 ga. I personally prefer Alu, but I should also note that I have switched to Weiss Cannon.
