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.
That's a good idea too. BBO definitely has better tension maintenance and durability, and with ALU cross, you have some of the unique feel there of ALU involved, so that is a decent idea.
But generally as everyone has noted, every string is going to play/feel/last differently, so there are no exact copies.
