    ALU is good but way too pricy. Which string would you rate as a better value. I'm currently using Ashaway monogut but I see there are tons of new strings available lately. I haven't played in over a year so I'm curious to see if there was a better value out there today.

    Thanks and happy tennis.

    Pffft, like I'd know
    Hmmmm, well, a few strings I'd have you try are Kirschbaum Super Smash, SPPP, Cyber Flash, and Babolat PHT

    I've played most of the strings that are similar but less expensive. Topspin Cyberflash rates highly with me. I haven't tried the Pro Supex Big Ace or the Unique Big hitter but they are supposed to be nice.

    Another vote for a Kirschbaum supersmash. It is basically the German version of Luxilon. Very good quality strings.

    Durability is also really good, i'm a pretty big hitter and it lasted me 2-3 months.
