    Fake Luxilon ALU Power

    I just purchased a reel of Luxilon ALU power but I have a couple concerns. For starters, its only a 200m reel. Secondly, the text on the strings just says Luxilon ALU Power 16 and then the string of letters. Are there any dead giveaways to tell whether or not its fake? What should a proper...

    What's the deal about RPM Blast and ALU Power?

    I seen RPM Blast and ALU Power are the most used strings in the professional circuit. I heard people claiming there is nothing special about them just marketing. Other claim they are the best strings. How come they are the most used string to date in the professional tour? Or am I wrong? Is...

    Why don’t more people use ALU Power spin?

    Has anyone else seen this or am I crazy? It got great reviews from TW, and for lots of modern players this seems like a great option. Is it due to the price?

    ALU Power/NRG2 hybrid - gauge question
