Luxilon Adrenaline Rough 16L

what string do you recommend crossing with this? Any comments on this string vx. Signum poly pro plasma? I will hybrid either, but have limited experience with this string. Thanks

AD is not deserving of luxilon name. Like anti ALU.
equinox, mind expounding a little bit? I've been using ALU Rough for a long time now and was considering trying Adrenaline or Adrenaline Rough because of the better price...

How are the playability and durability of the Adrenaline strings compared to ALU Rough?

If anyone else would like to weigh in as well, your input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

I've used both. For a point of reference, both were strung at 55 lbs as a full set.

Tension maintenance: neither is great, about the same.
Spin potential: due to the texture, they both have great access to spin.
Power: Alu power wins in this category with a little bit more pop.
Comfort: Adrenaline seems to be a little stiffer, but very similar.

I prefer to use Adrenaline Rough 16L, simply because it's $10 whereas the Alu power rough 16L is $17. Alu power is slightly better, but both are great strings.

Ah interesting, thanks very much for the help. Would you say that one is more durable than the other? Though Adrenaline is cheaper it might not be cost-effective if I have to restring more often...

alu rough has more spin and power, but imo, adrenaline rough has better tenison performance.
I can't say either one really lasted longer than the other. Neither held tension long or maintained elasticity long enough to get excited over. Both sets snapped around 15-20 hours of hitting.
