    Hi folks,

    I love Alu Rough but it's too expensive for me, so I'm searching for another "rough" mono, much cheaper, do you know some ?

    Pro Supex Blue Gear? Not quite the same roughness but its a textured string might be a little bit stiffer than Alu Rough but not much. It is a LOT cheaper though. $7-8 or something.

    Place on the Bay called Trapp Tennis is good and so is stringsdepotplus. I've bought from both and had shipped to the UK. If you search for Blue Gear on here you will find gazillions of threads.

    Luxilon now makes one of their less expensive strings in a rough version. Check the TW Luxilon page. I think it may be XP. Also, Lux Orginal comes in a rough version, and if I'm not mistaken, it's a tiny bit sheaper than ALU. Gamma has a great new rough poly called Zo Tour Rough. It's a couple bucks cheaper than ALU, and I've been enjoying it.
