What are the differences between these two. Specifically in tension maintenence, power and control.
I slightly prefer alu over bbo. I found alu a bit more powerful, same control but worse tension maintenance. I love alu in dense string patterns. bbo is also a great string and its cheaper. It's very close to alu. Its just personal preference. Look at pros, some play with alu and other with bbo. I think you should try both. I play with both till breakage. Another great poly string is PHT (16 and 17g). At the moment this is my top strings.
Thanks I really liked ALU but have not tried BBO yet. I guess I'll have to string up a set sometime.
