    numbers can be misleading. I actually thought it heald tension better than alu by about 10 days. and I usually cut the alu after 2.This stuff is very good. It is 1 of only three string I will consider putting in my racquet. VS touch, ALU Power, Revenge. Top 3.

    Holy sh*t it's stiff!! The stiffest Luxilon isn't even that stiff, and Lux gives a lot of players soreness and mild pain. Definitely a string to stay away from!

    This stuff plays softer than alu power with a lot of pop. It pockets the ball really well. #s can be deceiving.

    spin potential

    Can you compare the "R" string's spin potential to alu power and alu power rough? I am curious to know how spin friendly it is.

    I just strung up my babolat pure drive gt with revenge 1.30/16 at 24kg. It was a pain in the *** for me to string since I haven't got any stringing experience. Hope it plays nice!

    Eh, I don't always trust what the USRSA has to say...

    If it's not Gamma, they're probably not impressed. I got a few advanced sets and found it to play like any other top poly out there. It's great for a couple days, OK for a few more and then loses so much tension that it's unplayable. It's the life cycle of a co-polymer.

    In terms of stiffness, if someone if offended by stiff strings, polys aren't the way to go at all...
