I LOVE ALU.

Using the word love here.

But I couldn't afford it since it broke in 45min-1 1/2 hour of hitting.

Tried Kevlar/ALU and it caved all my racquets.

Now I am using a hybrid of BBO/ALUR, and it is lasting me about twice as long as full ALU, maybe 1 hour to 3 hours.

The BBO/ALUR needs to be strung MUCH MUCH looser than full ALU since the BBO is so stiff. But the BBO bites like hell, and the ALU gives it a bit of pop.

It is a different feeling blend, but I like it just as much, if it lasts twice as long for you and costs about the same, I consider that a win.
