    The flouro plays softer+has better spin+ feel.

    Rough is softer but loses tension a little faster IMO

    Alu power all the way people. It doesn't produce quite as much spin, but I think it's a better string. The Rough is not as comfortable IMO. BTW, in case you didn't know, ALu power, rough, flouro, and power spin are all 30% off at TW right now!

    I think both Alu Power and Alu Power Rough are the two best strings on the market for my game (from a playability standpoint). I play with a full bed of Rough. I feel the Rough gives me slightly more spin/action on the ball. The difference is slight, there is a difference for me. Since the price is the same, I prefer Rough.

    Like Jakedasnake said, TW is having a 30% off sale right now. I just picked up 10 sets.

    Take care.

    Do you think the sale means that they are clearing out inventory to make way for an upgraded ALU?
