I have already strung and tried both strings on my Dunlop 300G @ 57lbs. The Alu Power is good but I developed pain on my elbow after only using it for 18 hours. To reduce the impact on my arm, I have it hybrid with Prince synthetic duraflex 17 at the crosses which tame the effect on my elbow. However, for a heavy topspin player like me, the PSD 17 at the crosses does not last long. On the other hand, the following are my observations on the Ashaway Monogut 17. I strung on both mains and crosses. 1. The string does not move like Alu Power. 2, Generates excellent spin like Alu Power 3. Pockets the ball like natural gut. 4. Reasonable power. 5. Durable than Prince Synthetic Duraflex 17. 6. It plays like Alu Power 16L minus the arm/wrist effect. 7. Unbeatable price @ US$ 3.99. Did Anyone have already used both? Let us know your comparison. I also ordered Babolat Pro Hurricane and would like to know this string before I will settle down with one of them. But right now, I think Ashaway Monogut beats Luxilon Alu Power 16L.
